    If

    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you.
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you but make allowance for their doubting too
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting
    Or being lied about don'tdeal in lies
    Or being hated dont give way to hating
    And yet dont look too good nor talk too wise


    If you can dream and not make dreams your master
    If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat these impostors just the same
    Or watch the things you gave your life to , broken
    And stoop and build them up again with worn out tools
    If you can make a heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitchand toss
    And lose and start again from the beginning
    And never breathe a word about your loss
    If you can force your heart , nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says "Hold on"
    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
    Or walk with kings nor lose the common touch
    If neither foes nor friends can hurt you
    If all men count with you but none too much
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run
    Yours is the Earth and everything thats in it
    And which is more you'll be a MAN ,my son
