A Matter of Mind

A Matter of Mind

Now is a good time of the year to put the following little thought in your pipe and smoke it thoroughly:

IF you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don’t; If you think you’d like to win, but you can’t, It’s almost a “cinch” you won’t; If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost, For out in the world you’ll find Success begins with a fellow’s will—It’s all in the state of mind.

Full many a race is lost Ere even a race is run, And many a coward fails Ere even his work’s begun. Think big and your deeds will grow, Think small and you fall behind, Think that you can, and you will; It’s all in the state of mind.

IF you think you are outclassed, you are; You’ve got to think high to rise; You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win a prize. Life’s battle doesn’t always go To the stronger or faster man; But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the fellow who thinks he can.”
