“If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you won’t.
If you like to win, but don’t think you can,
It’s almost a cinch that you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out in the world you’ll find
Success begins with a person’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind…” —Walter D Wintle
The bag above is Kate Spade. She is a huge inspiration for me. With one idea she started her company; her husband quit his job because he believed in his wife. This one idea was knocked off until the end of time and became so cliche it was embarrassing to own one of her “boring” designs.
But she never gave up. And she came back with a bang. Never relinquishing her own style, but by adding color and a hint of trend, she was able to mass market her vision and relate to her audience.
Bravo Kate. and thanks.
