Winners vs. Losers

I always thought it was interesting to watch the behavior of successful people versus people who struggle.

Now I am not just talking about financial success, rather all aspects of life. Below is something I stumbled across a few years back and it is amazing to reflect upon it from time to time. So I decided to share it with you.

As you read through the list, simply reflect upon how you would grade yourself. Become aware of those shortcomings and then try to make changes in your life. Good luck as it can be difficult.

Okay. Here are a couple quotes from some real winners:

“Although I wanted my players to work to win, I tried to convince them they had always won when they had done their best.” ~ John Wooden, won 10 NCAA national basketball championships in a 12-year period -7 in a row (1967-1973)- as head coach at UCLA

“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision.”
~ Muhammad Ali


And one more amazing story: The 100 Meter Dash. So at the Special Olympics these young girls are running the 100 meter dash and as they are nearing the finish line. One girl is why out in front of all the rest of the children. Her coach is cheering her on, pushing her to go faster. But just before the finish line she just stops. She then turns and watches the rest of the girls catching up to her. Meanwhile her coach is urging her to start running again and finish the race. But she doesn’t, she continues to wait. The coach is now thinking she may not win, so he starts screaming at her to start running. No response. But once the other girls catch up, she then finally turns and crosses the finish line with all the others. After the race the coach asked her why she stopped. She replied, “I wanted to wait for all my friends and finish with them!” If that doesn’t tug at your heart!
