WINNERS AND LOSERS
I saw a graphic the other day that was a chart comparing the differences between winners and losers. No, it wasn’t sports-related, it was comparing the mindsets of people who view themselves as successes in life against those who see themselves as failures
Here are a few of the comparisons I remember seeing:
Winners say, “It’s difficult but possible.” Losers say, “It might be possible, but it’s too difficult.”
Winners see possibilities. Losers only see problems.
Winners make things happen. Losers let things happen.
Winners seek solutions. Losers make excuses.
Winners say, “I was wrong.” Losers say, “It wasn’t my fault.”
Winners say, “Let me do it for you.” Losers say, “It’s not my job.”
I was struck most by what I think is going on in the minds of so-called winners and losers. In fact, I think I can give you a pretty clear idea because I’ve acted out both roles at various times in my life.
