     We have all heard about the Power of Positive thinking. Having a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) is such an important component in having a quality of life. I recently came across a thought that I heard years ago, and I wanted to share with you as I think it goes hand in hand with our Core Values and CARES Culture.

“All In The State Of Mind”

If you think you’re 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 a cinch you won’t
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost
For out in the world, you’ll find success begins with a fella’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

Full many a race is lost
Where 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 strongest and fastest man
But sooner or later, the man who wins, is the fellow who thinks he can

     You have probably heard me say how much I love speaking with our students. Speaking to our CLD students is especially fun as they are prime for sharing new things about our 3 great colleges: our CARES Culture, Core Values and great Faculty and Staff, to name just a few. Every day we have the opportunity to help students see and value the importance of having a PMA, and if they do they will see how it can bless their lives, not only school, but in so many ways. 

     Truly-It’s all in the state of mind!


Live long and prosper.
