The man who wins is the man who thinks he can


I’m a big believer that you are what you think. Many times I walk into a situation and feel a little held back. Sometimes, I think I am crazy for moving forward on certain things. But at the end of the day, I know I must do what it takes to provide for my family. So I take over my thoughts and start to think of the positive end-result. I literally draw out what the best case scenario is and then believe that will be my end-result and what I will work towards.

You must control your thoughts. Do not be your worse enemy. Be an ally for yourself. Your own cheerleader. “Thoughts become actions.”

I found a poem (yes a poem!) online that I feel describes what I am saying very well… I hope you enjoy it.

The Victor
Poet: C.W. Longenecker or was it Walter D. Wintle?

“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 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 the prize.

Life’s battles 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.”
