The Man Who Thinks He Can


If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t
It’s almost certain that you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve already lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will:
It’s all in his state of mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are:
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You’ll ever win that 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.
