Acting like a winner is not a script - it's a life style. It's success in motion. It is thought in action. It cannot be faked. It is the by-product of the positive change occurring inside your soul. People begin to notice the pep in your step, the big cheesy smile on your pucker and the shine in your eyes. You're starting doing things differently. Your reaction to the storms of life is... calm. You refuse to engage in gossip and malicious slander.
Winners never quit. The main difference between winners and losers is the glaring fact that winners never quit when things get crazy. So what if the conference didn't as well as planned. The sponsors pulled out and you had to foot some of the bills out of your own pocket. Did you expect it to be smooth sailing? Other winners are watching you. Your reaction when your world is blowing up in front of your face will make or break you.
- Abraham Lincoln lost several elections and suffered a nervous breakdown before he became the president of the United States.
- Thomas Edison failed two thousand times before he invented the light bulb.
- Elizabeth Blackwell received twenty-nine rejections from medical colleges before she became America's first female physician. She went on to pioneer education for women in medicine and was a leader in the women's rights movement.
Let me repeat this: WINNERS NEVER QUIT. THEY NEVER SURRENDER!
Of course, this article merely scrapes the surface of the behaviors of winners. The rest is up to you to do due diligence and apply the results to your life.
Let's go to work!
