The difference between Winners And Losers
Are successful people simply lucky or are they exceptionally more talented than the average people? Majority believes yes. Is it pure talents or is there a formula for success?
After much research I have been able to compile below a list to highlight the key differences between winners and losers. I hope this will help you to determine where you are or in what ways you need to improve.
- Winners think about possibilities and ways to achieve. Losers focus on obstacles and on excuses that will stop them from achieving.
- Winners believe there is always a thing to learn. Losers consider themselves as an expert even though they know little.
- Winners find opportunities in crisis. Losers complain about crisis
- Winners enjoy being in the present and learn from the past. Losers live in the past
- Winners dream in the day. Losers dream in bed.
- Winners take responsibility. Losers blame others.
- Winners control their own destiny. Losers leave everything to their fate
- Winners give more than they take. Losers take more than they give.
- Winners are not scared to walk alone if the crowd is walking in the wrong direction. Losers follow the crowd.
- Winners always plan. Losers hate having a plan.
- Winners set goals. Losers lack goals.
- Winners take action consistently. Losers refrain from taking action and lack consistency
- Winners constantly expand their comfort zone. Losers remain in their comfort zone.
- Winners work hard. Losers avoid work.
- Winners try different strategies when not getting their expected results. Losers do the same thing over and over again expecting different results
- Winners learn from their failures. Losers fear failure and avoid them at all cost.
- Winners listen. Losers fight for every chance to talk.
- Winners continue to develop their skill every other day without fail. Losers make little effort in developing their skill.
- Winners face their fear, accept it and take the leap. Losers dwell in their fear.
- Winners commit to only what they can give their best to. Losers make promises that they always break.
- Winners give their best at whatever thing they decide to do. Losers work half-heartedly in everything that they do.
- Winners are persistent and will do whatever it takes (ethically) to achieve their goal. Losers give up when obstacles pop up.
- Winners manage their time well and indulge in high value activities that will bring them closer to their goals. Losers indulge in time wasting activities like watching TV entertainment as long as they want.
- Winners always find a better way to do things. Losers stick to one way of doing things.
- Winners make personal development a priority. Losers neglect personal development.
- Winners spend money on seminars and classes to improve themselves. Losers think that spending money on seminars and classes is a waste of money and they prefer to buy things that give them instant gratification.
- Winners help others to win. Losers refuse to help and think only about their own benefit.
- Winners find like-minded people like themselves that can bring them to greater height. Losers find like-minded people like themselves that will drag them to failure
In conclusion, the two crucial ways by which winners differentiate themselves from loser are one, the way they think and two the habits they keep.
“The difference between winners and losers is that winners do what losers don’t want to do”. Phillip C. McGraw. If you want to stand out and live a life of purpose start doing things differently today.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty. Proverbs 21:5
