The man who thinks he can

Jan 02, 2018 Published under Favorite Quotes

KIND’s outgoing COO and President John Leahy shared this poem with our team last month, and I loved it. It’s particularly fitting for this time of year as we embark on 2019 and look for the strength to uphold the resolutions that we’ve set and to meet the challenges that we’ll face. Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2019!

The man who thinks he can

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but don’t think you can
It’s almost a cinch you won’t

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out in the world you’ll find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in a state of mind

For many a game is lost
Before even a play is run
And many a coward fails
Before even his work is begun

Think big and your deeds will grow
Think small and you will fall behind
Think that you can and you will
It’s all a state of mind

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You got to think high to rise
You got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize

Life battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the fellow who thinks he can

-Walter Wintle
