If

If you think you are beaten, you 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
