Winners vs. Losers


When a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong;”

When a loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn’t
my fault.”

A winner works harder than a loser and has more time;
A loser is always “too busy” to do what is necessary.

A winner goes through a problem;
A loser goes around it, and never gets past it.

A winner makes commitments;
A loser makes promises.

A winner says, “I’m good, but not as good as I ought to be;”
A loser says, “I’m not as bad as a lot of other people.”

A winner listens;
A loser just waits until it is his turn to talk.

A winner respects those who are superior to him
and tries to learn something from them;
A loser resents those who are superior to him
and tries to find chinks in their armor.

A winner feels responsible for more than his job;
A loser says, “I only work here.”

By Pat Williams, a former NBA general manager
