As we start the new season we will be embarking on new skills, new drills, and new experiences. We will mess up, crash, miss, fail, & (with perseverance) succeed when training. Keep these words in mind while training:
If you think you’re beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t
It’s almost certain you won’t
If you think you will lose, you’ve lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a person’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you’re 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 late the one who wins
Is the person who THINKS they can!
Thinking, by Walter Wintle
