From a young age, we are often taught that there are two types of people in the world: winners and losers. People are judged on if they reach that magical success line, cross it and you’re a winner, don’t and, well, you’re a loser. But what is it that separates the wheat from the chaff?
They bounce back
No one can win every time, every race or every event they participate in, they are human after all. But what is imperative is the way people react to losing, do they remain down or do they get back up again? A winner quickly realises that spending time dwelling on anger and anxiety distracts from the overall goal of achievement. Winners know they must quickly deal with disappointment, and get back to working hard and looking forward.
Winners enjoy the thrill of taking on new challenges that push them outside their comfort zone. In doing so, they continue to test themselves in different areas that encourage their personal development. This need for fresh, new tests develops abilities and can give a person fresh perspective on various areas of life, whether it be work-based or in someone’s private life.
Rather than sit around and discuss doing something, winners get out there and do it! You can wait for an invitation to join a great team or opportunity, or you actively pursue and get involved in a great opportunity on your own intuition and by aggressively engaging. Sitting on the bench won’t bring success to your door.
