Thinking (believing in the possibilities)…Enjoy your Friday!

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 of 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!

Enjoy Your Friday! Aphorisms: Success and Failure (021811)

The one who says it cannot be done should never interrupt the one who is doing it. 

A pessimist is one who builds dungeons in the air. 

Some people dream of success, while others wake up and work hard at it. 

All I ask of life is a constant and exaggerated sense of my own importance. 

Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is. 

The last time you failed, did you stop trying because you failed — or did you fail because you stopped trying? 

It is said that the lonely eagle flies to the mountain peaks while the lowly ant crawls the ground, but cannot the soul of the ant soar as high as the eagle? 

Even a blind pig in a blizzard finds an acorn once in a while. 

Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are? 

After all is said and done, a lot more is usually said than done. 

Small minds are the first to condemn great ideas.
