10 DIFFERENCES SEPARATE WINNERS FROM LOSERS

I found the following list while sorting through a pile of papers. Although I don’t necessarily agree with the black-and-whiteness of the list, I do feel it has some interesting ideas on how people who “lose” and people who “win” self-talk.

So, according to the list, what do losers tell themselves (how do they see themselves) and what do winners tell themselves (how do they see themselves)?

SELF EXPECTANCY

Losers:  With my luck I’m bound to fail.

Winners: I was good today. I’ll be better tomorrow.

SELF IMAGE

Losers: They’re my hang-ups, faults. I’m stuck with them.

Winners: I see myself changing, growing, winning.

SELF CONTROL

Losers: I can’t understand why life did this to me.

Winners: I take the credit or the blame for my actions.

SELF ESTEEM

Losers: I’d rather be someone else.

Winners: I do things well because I’m that kind of person.

SELF AWARENESS

Losers: Who knows what I could do if I only had a chance.

Winners: I know who I am, where I’m coming from, and where I’m going.

SELF MOTIVATION

Losers: I can’t because…

Winners: I want to because…

SELF DIRECTION

Losers: I;ll try to hang in there, muddle through the day.

Winners: I have a plan to make it happen whatever it takes.

SELF DISCIPLINE

Losers: How can you expect me to do it? I don’t know how. It’s too hard.

Winners: Of course I can do it. Let me try it.

SELF DIMENSION

Losers: I’m only concerned with me.

Winners: I live every moment enjoying, doing, giving, as muc as I possibly can.

SELF PROJECTION

Losers: There’s no point in discussing it. We’re not on the same wave length.

Winners: Tell me what you want. Maybe we can work it out together.
