As A Man Thinks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7

_____________________

THE MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN

If you think you’re 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 loss, 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 late, the man who wins,

Is the man who thinks he can.

(W.D. Wintle)

I bought a cross-stitch piece at an estate sale which contained this poem. So much truth. We will attempt nothing unless we suspect we can.

When you stand on the scales, do you think it’s possible to lose that extra weight?  When you try on that special outfit that just a little tight and if you lose 10 pounds, you can wear it proudly. Do you think you can?

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7
