“If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are 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 soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!”
My humble opinion:
As I am listening an Audio-book of Think and Grow Rich, this poem is mentioned and I can’t help but to write it here. I also want to remember this all the time and to share it to someone who needed this too.
As life is a mystery, I myself of course experiences things that are not been in my will. Sometimes you can’t expect things to come your way and if trials come you will be surprise – not in your plans. Yeah, like travelling/hiking there are trials and obstacles along the way. So when it comes in your life, you can’t help but sometimes feels down or sadden. But you must not be worry about those feelings – it is natural and it will vanish soon.
The best things to do at the moment is to listen more motivational talks, guidebooks and surround yourself with good people. As what this poem suggested it is best to think positive and think you will succeed because what you think is what you become.
Let me end my opinion with bible verse:
[21 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”] – Matthew 21:21-22
