A Favourite Poem That Motivates Me

This was my father’s favourite and when we were little , my Father used to make us repeat this poem everyday. It was fun actually learning this.We all used to sit in a semi -circle and repeat word after word. He taught us everyday things through activity and in no time we would wait to play this game of ‘repetition’. Now years later I make my children learn poems too. I have this poem neatly handcrafted into a frame and have adorned it in my daughters room.This poem motivates us to approach life positively. 

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you 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 mind we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind

If you think you are out classed, 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 battle don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
