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 you think you can’t
it is almost certain you won’t. If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost. For out
in the world you’ll find ‘success’ begins with a fellow’s 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
soon or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.
