Success Poems


If You Believe You Can, You Can

If you think you are beaten--you are.

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

If you want to win but think you can't,

It is almost a cinch you won't.

If you think you'll lose--you've 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 battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man;

But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

I use to have a Comfort Zone
Where I knew I couldn't fail

The same four walls of busy work
Were really more like jail.

I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,

But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone
And paced the same old floor.

I said it didn't matter,
That I wasn't doing much

I said I didn't care for things
Like diamonds, furs and such.

I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone,

But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own.

I couldn't let my life go by,
Just watching others win.

I held my breath and stepped outside
And let the change begin.

I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my Comfort Zone "goodbye"
And closed and locked the door.

If you are in a Comfort Zone,
Afraid to venture out,

Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.

A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.

Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!
