Going through old stuff Frits gave I found a good read on what a winner looks like
A nice list of what a Winner does, and a Loser does not. I was fortunate to meet some real winners, fun to check our conversations against the list.
Thanks Frits Frankfort, your are no longer amongst us, hope people like your material!
|A Winner says “Let’s analyse it”||The Loser says “Who cares”|
|When a Winner recognises a mistake he says “I made a mistake”||The Loser says “It wasn’t my fault”|
|A Winner credits his luck, even though he wasn’t luck||The Loser blames his bad luck for losing, even though it wasn’t|
|A Winner knows when to say “Yes” or “No”||The Loser says “Yes, but …” or “No” on the wrong moment or with the wrong reason|
|A Winner is not afraid to loose. He works harder than the Looser and plans his time to do what is necessary||The Loser is afraid to loose and always too busy to do what is necessary|
|A winner goes “through” the problem||The Loser goes “around” the problem, never solving it|
|A Winner makes commitments, shows remorse by not making the same mistake again||The Loser makes promises, will say “Sorry” but make the same mistake again|
|A Winner knows his battles and makes promises happen||The Loser makes empty promises he does not fights for|
|A Winner says “I am good, but not as good as I thought I was”||The Loser says “I am not as bad a the others”|
|A Winner listens||The Loser waits till he thinks it is his turn to say something|
|A Winner feels strong enough to be friendly||The Loser is never friendly, he is either weaker, little or bullying|
|A Winner respects his peers and wants to learn from them||The Loser let other talk and waits to find a counterargument|
