Thinking

An Inspirational Poem About Never Giving Up

 

by Walter D. Wintle

 

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’s 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’re out-classed, you are;

You’ve got to think high to rise;

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You ever can 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 man who thinks he can.
