The Source Of Personal Power by Reverend Norman Vincent Peale

Fortitude and faith are the words. That is what keeps a man going when

he seems defeated. Believe that if you put your trust in God and keep

at things with unremitting energy and intelligence you too, can build

a solid foundation beneath you upon which you may mount up to victory.

Therefore, train your mind never to accept the thought of defeat about

anything. That verse from the Bible makes an unbeatable inspiration in

any situation: "If God be for us, who can be against us?" Hold it

habitually in mind and it will train you to believe in yourself by

constantly reminding you that you have extra power available.

(Reverend Norman Vincent Peale)
