Other than sharing a number of the same letters, winning and whining have very little in common. You rarely, if ever, see a winner whining about this or that. These power performers have already come to terms with a harsh reality of life whining prevents you from winning. If there is one thing that defines the true achievers, it is their impassioned will to win. Anything that gets in the way of winning has no place in their life and whining gets in their way big time.
The real players in life know full well that you dont have time to whine when youre busy winning and you dont have time to win when youre busy whining. Griping, complaining, fussing and fuming wont clear the path to the winners circle. As a matter of fact, whining siphons your energy, diverts your attention and squanders your focus. Dont fool yourself into thinking, even for the briefest of moments, that you can do both. Its not possible. And dont con yourself into believing whining wont adversely affect your progress. It will.
Winners prefer to minimize their contact with whiners. They simply have no time for the whiners never ending barrage of moaning and groaning about this and that and the other. Not surprisingly, whiners often resent winners, constantly complaining about the breaks those lucky winners receive. For whiners, griping and complaining are the name of the game.

To them, life is a big pain in the
On the other hand, winning is a way of life for the winners. They see life as an roaring roller coaster ride an exciting challenge and a golden opportunity all rolled up into one exhilarating adventure.
If you fail to remain vigilant, whining can become one of those nasty habits that gradually sneaks into your life and seeps into your soul. Then before you know you have the habit, it has you right where it wants you.
Don't cry, mope and complain about the hand you've been dealt in life. Take what you've been given and play it for all it's worth. Life is not about holding a good hand; life is about playing a poor hand well. When you stop whining, youll start winning and youll start winning a lot.
The Bottom Line: Always remember that all out commitment to excellence in everything you say, think and do paves the path to greatness.
