If you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don’t; If you‘d 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 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 sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.
