Winners & Losers


The most important indications to identify a Winner or a Loser *)

  1. When a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong”; when a loser makes a mistake, he says, “it wasn´t my fault”.
  2. A winner credits good luck for winning, even though it isn´t good luck. A loser blames bad luck for losing, even though it isn´t bad luck.
  3. A winner works harder than a loser and has more time, a loser is always too busy to do what is necessary.
  4. A winner goes through a problem; a loser goes around it, and never past it.
  5. A winner shows he´s sorry by making up for it; a loser says, “I´m sorry,” but does the same thing the next time.
  6. A winner knows what to fight for and what to compromise on; a loser compromises on what he shouldn´t and fights for what isn´t worthwhile fighting about.
  7. A winner says, “I´m good, but not as good as I ought to be”; a loser says, “I´m not as bad as a lot of other people.”
  8. A winner would rather be admired than liked, although he would prefer both; a loser would rather be liked than admired, and is even willing to pay the price of mild contempt for it.
  9. A winner respects those who are superior to him, and tries to learn something from them; a loser resents those who are superior to him, and tries to find chinks in their armour.
  10. A winner feels responsible for more than his job; a loser says, “I only work here.”
