If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think 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 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 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 sooner or later the man who wins;
Is the one who thinks he can.
