Actually, the entire quote itself is absurd and used to get you to go out there and make a fool of yourself when you really have no hope of it succeeding. Think about it. If you think you can jump in the air and stay suspended in midair for 15 seconds, will it happen?

Think about it this way: Say you have no chance of getting a girlfriend. You talk to your friend and say to him "Do you think it will work?". If he says "No, you're going to die alone." then you're not going to like him very much. People don't want the truth. They want some sugar-coated non-reality. Hence quotes like this one. In this case, your friend will distort reality and say "You never know until you try".

If you really want to believe this quote (and you shouldn't), another answer is below.

It means that if you get something in your mind that you can do something, you will try until you succeed. If you don't think you can do it. You won't accomplish it.


Example: If you think you can get a job: at the interview, you will be prepared, dress correctly, care about the interview...etc.


If you don't think you can get the job, you won't care so much how you look and act to the interviewer, therefore, unlikely to get the job.
