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.
