There are many things that determine whether you are a winner or loser, attitude and commitment are some of the variables. Also, remember that winners also lose, but it is how they react to the loss that makes them winners.

While reading a book I came across some points about the difference betweeen winners and losers that really stuck with me. I hung this list above my computer and by my bed to remind me about these facts every day.

1. A winner says, "let’s find out"; A loser says, "nobody knows".

2. When a winner makes a mistake, he says, "I was wrong"; When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn’t my fault".

3. A winner goes through a problem, a loser goes around it and never gets past it.

4. A winner makes commitments and a loser makes promises.

5. A winner says, "I’m good, but not as good as I ought to be"; a loser says, "I’m not as bad as a lot of other people".

6. A winner tries to learn from those that are superior to him/her, a loser tries to tear down those that are superior to him.

7. A winner says, "There ought to be a better way to do it"; The loser says, "That is the way it has always been done".


Be honest and ask yourself who you are. Everything is life is choices and you can always change. Start doing things that winners do and you will become a winner! Now I am going to through another problem, maybe you should too…..
