Letter from a Reader

 

July 2010 Issue  

     Dear RMR:

     This morning, Veronica (RMR’s office manager) and I briefly touched upon the topic of the power of positive (or negative) thinking. As I was driving home, I was reminded of this poem and thought that it would be nice to share with my fellow RMR readers.

     I discovered this little poem in the mid-70’s, when I was a teenager, and it profoundly influenced my riding. I think, at least in part, this poem was responsible for the success that my short, fat little Morgan enjoyed as an event horse. He competed through the Preliminary level, and won the last three events of his career against far more qualified horses. The little fellow was pure heart and, in the end, that’s what made the difference.

     I don’t know the title to this poem, but it was written by Napoleon Hill, the author of the 1937 classic, “Think & Grow Rich.”

~ Wendy Ervin, Corvallis , Montana

 

[Editor’s note: Research on the internet provided one of many titles of the poem.]

Self Confidence

By Napoleon Hill

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 certain you won’t.

 

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve 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 sooner or later the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can!
