I read a great poem the other day and wanted to share it with you lovely lot.
Winner Vs Loser
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, they say,”I was wrong”;
When a Loser makes a mistake, they say,” It wasn’t my fault.”
A Winner makes commitments;
A Loser makes promises.
Winners have dreams;
Loser 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.
So which one are you?
If you aren’t quite a winner yet then you still can succeed.
Be the best you can be.
