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's almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll 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 sooner or later the man who wins

Is the man who THINKS he can.
