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 are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise
You've got to be sure of yourself
Before you can win a prize
If you think you'll lose, you are lost
For out in the world we find
That success begins
With a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind
Life's battle's 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.
- Vince Lombardi
Often our attitudes are a result of the people we surround ourselves with. If you notice that the people around you don't have an attitude of a champion, share this with them and help them see that, perhaps, their thoughts need to change.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failure, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home ... or a school. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we do have and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our ATTITUDES.
