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 chinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost.
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellows 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 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.
