Believe in yourself

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 cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost, for out in the world we find …

Success begins with

A fellow’s will:

It’s all in a state of mind.

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!
