You can do as much as you think you can
But youíll never accomplish more
If youíre afraid of yourself, my friend,
Thereís little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first,
Itís there, if you only knew it.
And you can win, though you face the worst,
If you feel that youíre going to do it.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you donít.
If youíd like to win but think you canít,
Itís almost certain you wonít.
If you think youíll lose, youíve lost.
For out in the world youíll find
Success begins with a fellowís will.
Itís all in your state of mind.
