"I can" - Thinking Your Way To Success

Postby ganamede » Tue Jul 24, 2018 12:14 pm

Success comes to those who are success-conscious. You must focus your mind on where you want to go. You cannot achieve success if you do not FIRST believe you are capable and worthy of it. All success begins with “I can”!

This poem from Napoleon Hill’s book Think & Grow Rich wonderfully captures this idea.

. . .

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 person’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 do always go
To the stronger or faster man
But soon or late the one who wins
Is the one WHO THINKS HE CAN!

Reminds me of the Eleanor Roosevelt quote -

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

or Mark Twain -

"A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval."
