Words of Encouragement

My Area Manager, my leader, sent this to all of her managers the other day. While our community is struggling a bit, everyone else is also dealing with their own challenges, in their own way, on their individual communities. She stated in her email that her son started testing in the 3rd grade and the teacher had sent home a poem for encouragement. She wanted to share it with us. And, now, I want to share it with you. In the world of property management, we all struggle from time to time. We face challenges unbeknownst to those who just don’t get it. While it can be a very hard job, it is one of the most rewarding careers. This is for all my property management friends:

“It’s All In A State Of Mind”

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’s almost a “cinch” you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,

For out in the world you find

Success begins with a fellow’s will;

It’s all in the state of mind.

Full many a race is lost

Ere ever a step is run;

And many a coward fails

Ere ever his work’s begun.

Think big and your deeds will grow,

Think small and you’ll fall behind,

Think that you can and you will;

It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re 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 late, the man who wins,

Is the fellow who thinks he can.
