Last week my family and I were leaving church. My eight-year-old daughter Sophie decided to ride home in my car. I mentioned to her that we should race mom and her sister’s home. Then I said, “Well you know what? Maybe this one time we should let mom win.” She looked up at me and said very passionately “ Dad I’m a winner; I’m not a looser!”
This experience with my daughter got me thinking about the difference between winners and losers.
Winners never quit. Losers always have an excuse. Winners never fail. Losers never even try. Winners live by faith. Losers live by fear and despair. Winners see the gain. Losers see the pain. Winners see the possibilities. Losers see the problems. Winners make it happen. Losers let it happen. Winners focus on winning. Losers focus on winners. Winners train. Losers complain.
