Here’s a quick and easy way to find out.
No matter what you do in life, whatever goals you may set for yourself…
Whether you want to be successful in the cash flow business… or if you just want to be a better person…
These are the attitudes that separate winners from losers:
When a Winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong.”
When a Loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t my fault.”
If you acknowledge your mistakes, you can correct them and learn from them.
If you blame someone else for your mistakes—you’ll repeat them.
A Winner works harder than a loser and has more time.
A Loser is always “too busy” to do what is necessary.
If you expect life’s greatest joys to be handed to you on a silver platter… you’ll rarely, if ever receive them. And if by some miracle you’re made a present of life’s bounty… you won’t appreciate and value it—you’ll be too busy trying to get more.
A Winner goes through the problem.
A Loser tries to go around it, and never gets past it.
If you don’t tackle your problems head on—and fix them once and for all… they’ll always be there in the background, haunting you, dogging your every step… waiting for another chance to stop you from reaching your goals.
A Winner makes commitments.
A Loser makes excuses.
If you keep your promises… you’ll be relied on, trusted and turned to in times of need.
If, on the other hand, you make excuses for not keeping your promises, your failures will be magnified and the problems you were called on to solve—will only have been made worse—and blamed on you.
A Winner says, “I’m good but not as good as I could be.”
A Loser says, “I’m not as bad as a lot of people.”
If you aim for the stars, though never reach them, you’ll still soar higher and achieve far more success than someone who never lifts his head or dares to look up.
If you take comfort in knowing there are always people far worse off, far more miserable than you, and you never see those who are above you—how will you ever find the desire or the will to achieve more, and be better still?
A Winner always listens.
A Loser just waits until it is his turn to talk.
If you think of others first, you’ll be far more liked and admired than someone who always wants to have the last word—believing only he or she is right.
A Winner respects those who are superior to them
and tries to learn something from them.
A Loser resents those who are superior to them
and tries to find chinks in their armor.
Stand on the shoulders of giants and give credit where credit is due. If you build on the efforts of those who came and succeeded before you, your future successes will be built on strong legs.
But if you cut down and belittle the achievements of others, and are unwilling to learn from them, you cut off at the knees your own chances for future greatness and success.
A Winner feels responsibility for more than their job.
A Loser says, “I only work here.”
If you are only for you, who are you… and who will stand beside you when you need a helping hand? If you take to heart that no person is an island, and that we all sink or swim together, and that behind all achievement is the work of many working together—we will benefit together, and we will have far more successes… than if we work alone.
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.”
Without the energy and desire to be better than we are, to work smarter, and to achieve more than we have, we’d all still be living in caves—fearing the dark, suffering in the cold, and dying alone.
It is in our best interests, individually and collectively, to always try to do more, to be more, to have more—to find a happier place and a better time for ourselves, and our families.
So what do you think… are you a winner… or a loser?
In the final analysis, it’s really just a matter of choice. The thoughts you think and the actions you take… are always under your control.
So be a WINNER… do it now… do it for yourself… and for all of us willing to stand beside you.
