Motivational Monday, Great Poem

Poet: C.W. Longenecker

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 a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re 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 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.

Kristin, I love this!  The power of thought is stronger than it seems sometimes.  I'll have to re-read this post before my 1/2 marathon on the 4th!  :)

Kristin,

There is no such word and "can't" in my vocabulary.  Only "can".  I taught that to my son & daughter and to my kids in my 4H and pony clubs.  In turn, they are overcoming their challenges.  :-)

Thanks for the poem.
