Let's define the term "winner": The most common definition is "the person or team with the best score (i.e. points, goals, runs, time, etc.)." A better definition of a winner is "someone who gives 100 percent of their effort in preparation for and during competition.“ However, winning involves more than just beating your opponent on the scoreboard. When you're a winner you're always happy, but if you're happy as a loser you'll always be a loser.
WINNERS versus LOSERS The winner is always part of the answer.The loser is always part of the problem. The winner always has a programme.The loser always has an excuse. The winner says, “Let me do it for you”.The loser says, “That is not my job”. The winner sees an answer for every problem. The loser sees a problem for every answer. The winner says, “It may be difficult but it is possible”. The loser says, “It may be possible but it is difficult”. When a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I am wrong”. When a loser makes a mistake, he says, “It isn’t my fault”. A winner makes commitments.A loser makes promises. Winners have dreams.Losers have schemes. Winners say, “I must do something”.Losers say, “Something must be done”. Winners are a part of the team.Losers are apart from the team. Winners see the gain.Losers see the pain.

Ten Qualities of a Total Winner QualitiesWinners Self-talkLosers Say Attitude Qualities 1. Positive Self-Expectancy I was good today. I'll be better tomorrow With my luck, I was bound to fail. Overall attitude of personal optimism and enthusiasm. Winners understand the psychosomatic relationship: mind and body-that the body expresses what the mind is concerned with. 2. Positive Self-Image I see myself changing, growing, achieving, winning! They're my hang-ups, faults, and stupidities…and I'm stuck with'em. They know the self-image acts as a subconscious life-governing device- that if in your self-image you can't possibly see yourself doing something, achieving something, you literally cannot do it!

Acceptance of a 100% responsibility for causing the effects of his or her life. Winners realize they personally have the power to take control of many more aspects of their lives, both mental and physical 4. Positive Self-Esteem I do things well because I’m that kind of person. I'd rather be somebody else. Recognizing their uniqueness they develop and maintain their own high standards. Ten Qualities of a Total Winner Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.

Who knows what I could do if I only had the chance. Winners know who they are, what they believe, their role in life, their personal potential-and the future roles and goals which will mark fulfillment of that potential. Action Qualities 6. Positive Self-Motivation I want to…and I can.I can't because… This positive self-motivation of total winners derives from two sources: (1) their self-expectant personal and world view and (2) their awareness that fear and desire are among the greatest motivators

I'll do what's necessary to get what I want I'll try to hang in there- muddle through the day somehow. They know where they're going every day, every month, every year. Their objectives range all the way from lifetime goals to daily priorities. 8. Positive Self-Discipline Of course I can do it. I've practiced it mentally a thousand time. How can you expect me to do it? I don't know how. Positive self-discipline is the ability to practice within. They know that thoughts begets habit and they discipline their thoughts to create the habit of superb performance-the mark of the total winner.

Positive Self-Dimension I live every moment, enjoying as much, relating as much, doing as much, giving as much as I possibly can. I'm only concerned with me. Winners see their total person as a "big picture" of life. They have learned to know themselves intimately. 10. Positive Self-Projection Tell me what you want, maybe we can work on it together.

Four Characteristics of a Winner 1. A Winner Knows What it Means to Be a Winner An Example: Gabriella Anderson
Four Characteristics of a Winner 2. A Winner Must Set High Goals "If you are aiming at nothing, you'll hit it every time." People who set goals may not always reach them, but they will almost always achieve more than those who set no goals at all. Who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet.
Example: Glen Cunningham Satisfaction does not come with achievement, but with effort. Full effort is full victory.
Four Characteristics of a Winner 3. A Winner is Disciplined Setting high goals is a waste of time if you aren't willing to work hard to achieve them. Winning is everything. The only one’s who remember you when you come second are your wife and your dog.
Example: Emil Zatopek
Four Characteristics of a Winner 4. A Winner Has Strong Motivation What motivates you to push yourself? Some examples could include: The thrill of winning It makes you feel good about yourself To impress others, such as friends, parents, or a girlfriend or boyfriend To gain recognition Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing.
REAL LIFE INCIDENTS “DON’T QUIT” Failures are stepping stones for success When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process". A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying attention to his mathematics and for not being able to solve simple problems. She told him that you would not become anybody in life. The boy was Albert Einstein. A small boy--the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father, was selling newspapers in a small village to earn his living. He was not exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by religion and rockets. The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he built crashed multiple times and he was made a butt of ridicule. He is the person to have scripted the Space Odyssey of India single-handedly. He is Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. President of India.
