This month I want to introduce you to the timeless poem,

"The Man Who Thinks He Can."

by Walter D Wintle

Within its verses lies a profound message that can propel you to unlock your hidden potential and embark on the journey of your dreams.

With every business startup or juvenile business there is an ongoing need for personal development.

I have had this poem for over 40 years and it is ageless.

It speaks directly to those of you who may feel hesitant to take that leap of faith, especially when it comes to starting a business, pursuing your passions or moving to the next level.

I understand at times, the weight of self-doubt and fear can hold you back, preventing you from realizing your true potential.

Oh, how I know this feeling.

Walter Wintle's poem is a poignant reminder your thoughts shape your reality.

If you believe in your abilities and envision success, you can overcome any obstacle that lies in your path.

This poem, "The Man Who Thinks He Can" encourages you to embrace the positive attributes that can transform your life.

Belief in yourself. The most significant battle you face often lies within your own mind.

By cultivating a strong belief in yourself, you empower your capabilities and ignite the fire of possibility.

Believe you can achieve greatness, and you will pave the way for success.

Starting a business or pursuing a new endeavor can be intimidating.

This poem reminds us courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to push through it.

Embrace uncertainty as an opportunity for growth and let courage be your guiding force.

Success rarely comes without setbacks and challenges.

This poem encourages you to stay committed to your goals, even when faced with adversity.

Every failure becomes a stepping stone towards success if you maintain the resilience to keep moving forward.

The truth is, your thoughts have the power to shape your reality.

By focusing on positive thoughts and visualizing your desired outcomes, you manifest the confidence and determination necessary to achieve your dreams.

Walter Wintle's poem is a potent mantra for those who hesitate to embark on their entrepreneurial journey.

It urges you to silence the self-doubt, embrace your potential, and forge ahead with conviction.

The road to success is often paved with challenges, but the rewards are worth the journey.

So, dear readers, take a moment to reflect upon your aspirations and dreams.

Let "The Man Who Thinks He Can" be your guiding light, propelling you towards greatness.

Embrace the positive attributes it encapsulates and step into the arena with unwavering faith in your abilities.

The Man Who Thinks He Can by Walter D Wintle

“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’re 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 soon or late the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.”

As you navigate the uncertainties of life, remember success is not reserved for a select few; it is within the grasp of anyone who believes in their potential.

Take inspiration from Walter Wintle's powerful words and become the person who dares to dream, take risks, and make a difference.

With warm regards, until next month. Go you good thing.
