Dear Members and Friends;

In life, all of us have had experiences where we consider the results of something that we have done a win.  At other times, we’ve considered it a loss.  In our world today, political correctness wants there to be no winners or losers in the games the children play.

How can they be prepared for life, which is full of wins and losses; if they have no experience in outcomes that produce wins and losses.  Below are some suggestions on how winners and losers look at situations.

Winner Versus Loser

  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;
    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 are.”
  6. A winner tries to learn from those who are superior to him.
    A loser tries to tear down those who are superior to him.
  7. A winner says, “There ought to be a better way to do it.”
    A loser says, “That’s the way it’s always been done here.”

I’m sure that you found that within the losers attitude there is a sense that we won’t try therefore we won’t lose.  But in not making an attempt to accomplish anything, they have already lost.

Let’s Be Winners!
