STATE OF MIND
If you think you are beaten you are.
If you think that you dare not, you don´t.
If you`d like to win, but think you can´t,
It`s almost certain you won´t.
If you think that you´ll lose, you´ve lost.
For out in the world you´ll 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 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.
