Saturday Poem – Thinking

Another one for positivity this week – I love this, these are words which are definitely worth remembering and repeating to oneself from time to time.  No matter what you are doing, no matter where you are, the way you think has the power to change you are.

Thinking

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 is almost certain 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 soon or late the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.

Walter D. Wintle
