State of Mind

If you THINK you are beaten, you are.
If you THINK you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but THINK you can't,
It's Almost certain you won't.

If you THINK you're lose, you're lost,
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's 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 battles don't always go,
To the stronger or faster man,
But Soon or Late the man(woman)who wins
Is the man (woman) WHO THINKS HE(SHE) CAN!

The key word or wisdom is "STATE OF MIND"

This is one time where the caps are O.K. as this is exactly how the origin poem appears, the caps are included by the author to illustrate the profound points in the poem.

This is one of the most positive poems in existance.

Its wisdom can only be detected by those who are ready to receive life's treasures!
