What Are You Thinking?

I was reminded of my time at Plaquemine Jr. High. I had an English teacher who made us learn and recite poetry that was meant to inspire. She was very dramatic - one day when the class was completely quiet she broke out into INVICTUS. At the time, I thought this was just something to do. I enjoyed it because I liked to speak at church and all, but I didn't really get it. Now that I'm older, I realize that all the poems were meant to give us some hope. WOW! This teacher had us speaking things into existence back then and we didn't even know. I wanted to share one of those poems with you guys. What do you think!?!?! I'm training myself to think and know I can ...

The Man Who Thinks He Can
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 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 word we find
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outcasted, 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 soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
