Reality Is Created By The Mind. We can Change Our Reality By Changing Our Mind- Plato
Why do some people become “winners” while others become pathetic “losers?” This is a phenomenon that I have often thought about. Although there are multiple reasons why this occurs, I have come to the conclusion that the number one reason is that “winners” think significantly different than “losers.”
THOUGHTS LEAD TO BEHAVIOR -BEHAVIOR LEADS TO RESULTS/OUTCOMES
Yes, genetics and environment have something to do with outcome. However, the primary factor is how the person thinks that determines whether they are a loser or a winner.
Most people know what a “winner” looks like if you ask them. They are people whom you look up to. They are valued in society. They have integrity and command respect. They treat people well and contribute positively to society.
Who do you know in your family, work place, or in society that you think about as being a winner? I’m sure someone comes to mind.
“Losers” on the other hand, are looked at negatively by society. They tend not to have any integrity and therefore don’t get any respect. The often are not high achievers. They tend to take more from society than they give back. People tend to avoid these types of persons. Who comes to mind when you think of a “loser?”
Winners and losers have nothing to do with social status. There are rich winners, just as there a poor winners. There are rich losers, just as there are poor losers.
It has to do more with thinking and behavior than with financial status.
Let’s contrast the difference between “Winners” and “Losers”:
Think they CAN Think they CAN’T
Take responsibility Blame others
Give more than they take Take more than they give
Are compassionate for others Don’t care about anyone but themselves
Care about the environment Pollute the environment with smoke, litter
Can delay gratification Require immediate gratification
Earn what they get Feel they are owed what they get
Never use or abuse drugs Use or abuse drugs or alcohol
Associate with positive people Associate with negative people
Give to society Take from society
Never quit! Are quitters!
Have positive values (integrity, honesty) Have negative values (lie, cheat, steal)
As you can see, there are significant distinctions between Winners and Losers. Which side of the equation are you on?
Which side you manifest often determines how you will experience the world. One side or the other can often predict your success in life.
If you think and behave as on the “Winner” side you will likely experience life as fulfilling and rewarding. If you think and behave as on the “Loser” side, you will likely experience life negatively and harshly. It is fortunate that nothing is set in stone. You can always change your thinking, your behavior and thus change your life!
