Believe in yourself

          Tactics does not like plan-of-actions -
          There's no victory off-the-shelf,
          Failure is always an option -
          There's no use in fooling yourself.

          So "Believe in yourself" (confusing?)
          Does not mean you believe you'll win.
          It just means you're ready for losing -
          That's a much more powerful thing!

          It just means you know you'll recover,
          Won't decry yourself or the prize,
          Face whatever loss will uncover,
          And if choose so, will do more tries.
