Success Begins With Your Will

It Is Always A State Of Mind
Author Unknown

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.

    Absolutely! Expect to win, and be determined to keep trying until you do, and you will!

    (Expect to lose, and you will, too, unfortunately. So cultivate your mind and your belief towards POSITIVE expectation and it will help you to achieve the goal.)

    I agree with this post, as what others say, 'get what you expect'.. So if at first you doubt your ability to to the thing you want to achieve, then it will more likely not come to a good result.

    Sure and this is very common in sports.

    In life probably because of the long span of time we have before we know who's beaten and who's not, it never truly plays out.

    Thanks for sharing these quotes.

    Willpower may be the inner strength and also the inner engine that propels towards success and achievement. It is the strength that pushes into action in most part of life. Willpower is probably the most crucial and desirable inner powers, and its particular lack or presence determines whether you'll fail or accomplish your desires and ambitions and attain success.

    This is true for self-motivated people, but people with less discipline, the vast majority of the population, can succeed when they get good social support.

    I agree, everything starts with the way you think...

    "Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
    Watch your words , for they become actions.
    Watch your actions, for they become habits.
    Watch your habits, for they become character.
    Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny"

    I agree that expectation of success is really important.

    If you are moving in one direction confidently enough it is just natural that other people will either get out of your way or follow you.

    Agree! It all begins with our own will! No one can control our mind and attitude except ourselves. As long you think positive and never give up, for sure success will always arrive.

    When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
    When care is pressing you down a bit.
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
    Life is queer with its twists and turns
    As every one of us sometimes learns.
    And many a failure turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out:
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
    You may succeed with another blow.
    Success is failure turned inside out -
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
    And you never can tell how close you are.
    It may be near when it seems so far:
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    Exactly, the will brings out the competitive spirit. Without the will power, people are just going through the motions just for the sake of going through the motion.

    It's like a person who goes to the gym to get fit or lose weight. Some people will just go because they WANT to lose weight, but they are not determined to do it. They go through the motions, but will not try their best efforts each and every time. Guess what? They will not get the results that they want because their effort wasn't there.

    The ones that actually lose weight are the ones who are determined to lose weight. They will utilize their time productively at the gym to and putting in their best effort each and every time. When you do that you will get the results you so desire.

      Yep. and that goes along with this quote:

      "Education will not (take the place of persistence); the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."


      Calvin Coolidge

      And "pressing on" as he says, take a strong will.

    Thanks for sharing the poem. It is a nice one.

    However, I caution that not too much weight is given to the role of will, at least with respect to the effectiveness of will power. Mindset is very important, but so is action and placing yourself in a good environment that reinforces behavior.

    Very few people succeed with will power alone and emphasizing will can put a big burden on people who fail often because of other factors.

      I have not seen this to be the case though. Even with "other factors", I have observed people who have, against all odds, achieved what was believed the impossible with the force of will.

      And of course, action will be required. It is the will in these people that keep them taking action even when they run into difficulties.

      And although there may be a way to find an exception to just about anything given extreme circumstances, this is still great advice for the majority.
