Words to Live By

For a reason, I have been off balance lately. I had dinner with a friend and I was finally able to say what that reason was out loud. 

Still feeling off balance, but she was there to listen and give me some good advise. 

She sent me this.


By 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 your 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 faster woman or man,

But sooner or later, 

The ones who win are,

The ones who think they can.”

Hopefully I can grasp what I’m going through and move forward. 

Thank you, dear friend.
