Winners never lose!
That doesn’t mean that they always win. Despite how paradoxical that statement appears to be, it is true.
To have the mentality of a winner in any aspect of life, one doesn’t lose sight of the goal and pursues it despite the fact that s/he inevitably experiences setbacks. In fact the major difference between the mindset of a winner and that of a loser is that the loser views a defeat as a reason to abandon the quest for the goal. The winner, on the other, views defeats as temporary interruptions on the way to the victory that may or may not be achieved.
For the winner, a defeat is an experience to be learned from and a guide to making adjustments or modifications in the pursuit of the goal – without abandoning the mindset that victory will come in some form or other – even though it may not look the same as was imagined when the goal was initially pursued. A winner who doesn’t get the job or the date or the income or the championship that s/he desired doesn’t let that define him or her. It serves as a source of motivation.
Most of us have heard the story of Thomas Edison who reportedly failed thousands of times on the way to inventing the lightbulb – yet he said he never failed; he just discovered thousands of ways in which it didn’t work. A person with a loser’s mentality may see it as a rather humorous but meaningless quote. Someone with a winner’s mindset can totally relate to it’s meaning. As long as you are proactive and positive and forward-moving, tregardless of the roadblocks that you encounter, you are a winner – and that’s incompatible with losing.
