On my first e-mail to you I posed a question, “Can you go a day, a week, or how about a month with no sugar?” Well, most of us completed a day, lots completed a week, and can you believe it…. So many are approaching 1 month goal mark!
Today, on day 19, we can look back and say, WOW! We can start feeling that proud feeling of accomplishment that we get when we do something so terrific for ourselves.
Though, I believe the greatest accomplishment is believing in yourself and saying “I think I can do this!”
Below is a famous poem by Walter D. Wintle that has helped, and continues to help me, to achieve higher in my goals.
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 wont.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will-
It’s all in a 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.
