How to Win

Winners vs. Losers

“Winners have simply formed the habit of doing things losers don’t like to do.” ~ Albert Gray

I saw this list years ago and loved it. I don’t know who the author is and I’ve added a couple of my own. At any rate, the list worth revisiting often. Perhaps you have one or two entries of your own.

Winners vs. losers.

Winners ask, “Can I help?”
Losers say, “It’s not my job.”

Winners say, “It may be difficult, but it’s possible.”
Losers say, “It may be possible, but it’s too difficult.”

Winners find a solution in every problem.
Losers find a problem in every solution.

Winners ask how.
Losers ask why.

Winners accept responsibility.
Losers assign blame.

Winners embrace details.
Losers cut corners.

Winners have programs.
Losers have excuses.

Winners make commitments.
Losers make promises.
