"The Man Who Thinks He Can" - A poem originally by Walter D Wintle

  • If you think you are beaten, you are;
    If you think you dare not, you don't.
    If you'd like to win, but you think you can't,
    It is almost a cinch you won't.

    If you think you'll lose, you've lost;
    For out in this world we find
    Success begins with a fellow's will
    It's all in the state of mind.

    If you think you're outclassed, you are;
    You've got to think high to rise.
    You've got to be sure of yourself before
    You can ever win the prize.

    Life's battles don't always go
    To the stronger or faster man;
    But sooner or later the man who wins
    Is the man who thinks he can!
