Do You Think You Can?

Most people will go through life without realising that their perspective on life makes a major impact on the quality of their lives. In fact, it is only when you see the world and its challenges differently that you will be able to live differently. Everyone has problems and everyone experiences failure but what sets apart the achievers from the complainers is simply the ability to see things differently. To see hope where others see despair. View a setback as permanent failure and you’re not going to learn much from it. View the same setback as an opportunity to learn and you’re going to progress in leaps and bounds.

Sometimes, we inadvertently look for reasons to be unhappy. We find reasons for unhappiness when we refuse to adapt our thinking to our experiences. If one plan doesn’t work out perhaps it’s because there’s a better plan you should be trying. Don’t allow your mind to convince you that it isn’t worthy trying for anymore. Don’t allow others to make up your mind for you by telling you what you can and can’t achieve. The poem below is a good reminder of the power of your thoughts. Read it, share it and bring about the changes your life needs.

It isn’t about what others think you can achieve; it’s about what YOU think you can achieve.

P.S. Please read the poem and reflect on the deeply powerful message it carries + start building a great life



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 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

(Walter Wintle)
