If … by Walter Wintle

At an event earlier in the week, the keynote speaker finished his session by quoting Walter Wintle’s poem ‘If’…. i thought it would be good to share this with you as you start to plan out next weeks diary and key project plans



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’ve lost

For out of the world we find,

Success starts 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 sooner or later the man who wins
