Dear Perfect Stranger,
How are you today? I hope that you are doing well and if not, I hope this note serves as a pick-me-up during your day. Instead of writing a long note, I’m going to leave you with a poem called ‘The Victor’ by C.W. Longenecker.
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.
Reading a poem can change the way you think of a topic or it can describe how you are feeling. What I get from this poem is that its important to believe in yourself. I hope you enjoyed it too!
Your friendly picker upper 🙂
