If you think you are .....

Updated: Feb 7, 2019

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 this 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 the prize.

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!


This wonderful and inspiring poem was a gift from my brother Parvinder. It guided us in times of both success and difficulties.


Poem 'Thinking' composed by: Walter D. Wintle published first in 1905
