A little Thing Called Attitude

Last Update: October 01, 2015

I was just sitting around, scratching my head and wondering what piece of marvelous wisdom I could shoot into the ether to maybe inspire at least one of my friends here in WA. I came across this one, given to me by Jim Rohn years ago in Dallas. Jim has long been known as America's foremost business philosopher and he was. He's gone now but he will never be forgotten. This was one of his favorites on attitude. Powerful.

“If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain 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 a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.”

Let's all have a great year.....Dick
