“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 later the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!”
Walter D Wintle
This poem pretty much sums up my thinking for the last 2 days. I am forever going through different thoughts about what I want to do and achieve from life.
I know that I can achieve whatever I set my mind to, however I often doubt myself and lose sight of my main objectives and to some degree what is truly important to me.
My mindset and ambitions have changed a lot over the past couple of years. Sometimes this can make it difficult to progress in life. I often feel that I stop myself moving forwards because I am scared, scared of failure….
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. Bill Cosby
This links back to state of mind. You need to believe in yourself, have faith that you are capable to accomplish the impossible.
True desire let’s no barrier stand in your way to achieving your dream.
I can safely say I’m still a long way off my ultimate dream. However, I can reflect on goals I set 1 1/2yrs ago and can see I’m moving in the right direction.
Faith doesn’t come naturally, it is however something we can develop.
I urge you to start believing in yourself in a positive light. Become the person you want to be and reach where you want to get to. The sky’s the limits.
