The Winner’s Credo

The surest route to happiness is to grow, change and take response-ability for creating the life of a “winner.” What type of positive, “can-do” and change-producing attitudes does a winner use?

Winners say, “Yes,” while Losers say, “Yes, but.”
Winners reveal love, while Losers conceal love.
Winners say, “I did,” while Losers say, “I didn’t.”
Winners appreciate, while Losers denigrate.
Winners say, “Now,” while Losers say, “Later.”
Winners persist, while Losers quit.
Winners say, “I love you,” while Losers say, “You must love me.”
