Winners vs. Losers


I don’t mean to be harsh; but lets be straight forward – both winners and losers leave trails of how they got there. So, let’s take a closer look.

For me, a winner is someone who plans to win, prepares to win and then expects to win. A ‘winner’ is someone who learns and moves forward with power, confidence and patience – regardless of the result. A winner recognizes that there is no failure only results and feedback .

A ‘loser’ on the other hand is someone who won’t even try. They have thrown in the towel before the match has even started. They are sitting on the sidelines of their own life. They have let the frustrations of life paralyze them and they feel completely powerless. Yes, ‘loser’ is an incredible harsh term, so to be fair and clear losing is an event, not a person. Losing is something that we all go through. In fact, some of the most successful and impactful people have  lost many times over. But see a winner doesn’t see it as a loss – they see it as gaining unexpected knowledge. Focusing on what you have learned makes you realistic and effective! Don’t fall into the trap of being ‘realistic’ only to get discouraged and encouraged to think and live small. 

One of the best ways to get onto the winning side is to learn how to loose. If you can’t win, be a great loser! Meaning, focus on what you have learned, focus on what can be gained and be flexible enough to change your path to your desire goal. A winner focuses on the result, the goal; while a loser will focus on the obstacles.

  1. awesome post! blunt and to the point but really inspiring at the same time. great stuff!

  2. I agree with almost all of this post. The one part I disagree with is that only losers see the problems. I believe that winners also see the same problems. The difference between them comes in with how they are dealt with.

    Winners will look into the future, see roadblocks / difficulties / problems but will then work to avoid them. Like you said, they will learn from them and find a way to get around them.

    Losers on the other hand will not look into the future. They will be hit square in the face and off balance by these problems. Once knocked down, they throw up their hands and say, “Well, we gave it a shot.” When in actuality they didn’t even try in the first place.

  3. I just started following you as I just started my blog so I have to back-track to see you have lots of good stuff. This info is not just good for business people but I also share with my 11 and 13 year old. I will be sharing this post with them tonight. Peace.
