People approach life with either a winner’s attitude or a loser’s attitude. Most people do possess a mix of the two. those bringing a winner’s attitude are typically characterized by high level of self-esteem, an overall positive outlook on life, they continuously express and communicate a general feeling of gratitude, they seem to have a sense and belief in great personal destiny, a willingness and openness to learn and they possess the will to do what is necessary.
As contrasted an individual with a loser’s attitude exhibits poor self-esteem, an overall negative outlook on life – they will even defend their position as “realistic”. They express and focus on a general feeling of resentment about the difficulties and challenges of life. They possess a sense of impending negative fate – an almost palpable aura many times exists around them – the cloud of doom! They tend to be less open to new ideas and possess a self-righteous stubbornness about what they “know”. And last but certainly not least they have no will-power or self-discipline. They are always justifying a failure to meet commitments with excuses. They have an excuse for everything.
That all being said because you currently possess some loser characteristics does not mean you are doomed to be a loser for life.
