The difference between Winners and Losers!

The difference between a winner and a loser is really just a matter of how you look at circumstances in life and then deal with them. All of us find ourselves on the losing end at some time or another; it's how we cope with failure that determines whether or not we are a winner.

Winners make commitments
Losers make promises

Winner go around or through a problem
Losers never get past it

Winners inspire others
Losers bring down the team

Winners always have a plan
Losers always have an excuse

Winners are proud of their accomplishments
Losers have nothing to brag about

The following are examples of some of the most successful people in history and their failures:

BABE RUTH struck out 1,330 times on his way to 714 home runs and baseball immortality.

In 1954, ELVIS PRESLEY was fired from the Grand Ole Opry after only one performance and was told by the manager. "You ain't going nowhere, son. Better get your job back driving a truck."

When ALBERT EINSTEIN was a boy, his parents thought he was mentally retarded. His grades in school were so poor that a teacher asked him to quit saying, "Einstein, you will never amount to anything!"

Before achieving sports notoriety, MICHAEL JORDAN was just an ordinary person; so ordinary that he was cut from his high school basketball team because of his "lack of skill".

When THOMAS EDISON was a boy, his teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything. When he set out on his own, he tried more than 9,000 experiments before he created the first practical incandescent light bulb

What is even more interesting about Tom Edison is he was asked why did you fail at the light bulb 9 thousand times? He said "I didn't fail 9,000 times, but found 9 thousand ways it didn't work!"

All of us will find ways to cope with the negative attitudes towards success. Ask yourself, "If it was easy everyone would be doing it" Wouldn't they?

I wish you all the best of luck to you, your family, and your success!!!!
