A State of Mind

If you think you are beaten, your are

If you think you dare not, you won’t,

If you like to win, but don’t think you can

It’s almost a cinch you won’t

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost

For out in the world you find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will

It’s all in a state of mind

For many a game is lost

Ere even a play is run,

And many a coward fails

Ere even his work is 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 a state of mind

If you think you are out-classed, your 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 battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man

But sooner or later, the man who wins

Is the fellow who thinks he can
