A friend of mine shared with me several years ago a poem of sorts 'Winners vs. Losers'. It has left an impression on me over the years because it points out a winner vs. loser attitude and what it takes to win in life. If we have goals to accomplish and want to live a happy, fulfilled life then having a negative outlook on things will not help us get there.
It takes a winning attitude just like it does in the game of sports. As I was watching football this weekend, you can clearly see the effort and work each of the players put into winning the game. Now granted, one team will win the game and one must lose the game, but having a winning attitude and working hard until the last play and never giving up regardless of the obstacles in front of them is so important. If they give up and have a defeated attitude from the get go, they have already lost the game before it even started.
The winner says, "It may be difficult but it's possible"
The loser says, "It may be possible but it's too difficult"
