(Philippines 4:13)                              By Walter D. Wintle Poet 

                                    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 a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost

For out in the world you find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will -- --

It’s all in the state of mind.

Full many a race is lost

Ere even a step is run,

And many a person fails

Ere even his work’s begun,

Think big, and your deeds will grow,

Think small and you’ll fall behind,

Think that you can, and you will -- --

It’s all in the 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 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 fellow who thinks he can.
