Positive Thinking

2014 times

There are few things over which we have control, and a critical one is our thoughts. The mind is very powerful so we must be guard our thoughts carefully. Positive thoughts lead to positive actions which lead to positive results. Conversely, negative thoughts lead to negative results. I am reminded of the poem The Victor by C.W. Longenecker.


The Victor

by C.W. Longenecker:


If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don't.

If you like to win but think you can't, It's almost a cinch 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 out classed, you are.

You've got to think high to rise.

You've got to be sure of your-self before

You can ever win the prize.

Life's battles don't always go

To the stronger or faster man.

But sooner or later, the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.


Regardless of what we face, let us go forward knowing and believing that we can.


Onwards and Upwards!
