Winners versus losers

Winners versus losers

The Winner is always part of the answer; The Loser is always part of the problem.

The Winner always has a program;The Loser always has an excuse.

The Winner says, “Let me do it for you”;The Loser says, “That is not my job.”

The Winner sees an answer for every problem;The Loser sees a problem for every answer.

The Winner says, “It may be difficult but it is possible”;The Loser says, “It may be possible but it is too difficult.”

When a Winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong”;When a Loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t my fault.”

A Winner makes commitments;A Loser makes promises.

Winners have dreams;Losers have schemes.

Winners say, “I must do something”;Losers say, “Something must be done.”

Winners are a part of the team;Losers are apart from the team.

Winners see the gain;Losers see the pain.

Winners see possibilities;Losers see problems.

Winners believe in win-win;Losers believe for them to win someone has to lose.

Winners see the potential;Losers see the past.

Winners are like a thermostat;Losers are like thermometers.

Winners choose what they say;Losers say what they choose.

Winners use hard arguments but soft words;Losers use soft arguments but hard words.

Winners stand firm on values but compromise on petty things;Losers stand firm on petty things but compromise on values.

Winners follow the philosophy of empathy: “Don’t do to others what you would not

want them to do to you”; Losers follow the philosophy, “Do it to others before they do it to you.”

Winners make it happen;Losers let it happen.

Winners plan and prepare to win.The key word is preparation.
