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 in the world we find,
Success begins with the fellow’s will,
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think 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 one who thinks he can.
