Power Up Passages

Just Say Win.
April 14, 2003.

"Accept the challenges, so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory."
General George S. Patton

Winners sometimes make winning look easy. After all, time and time again they come out on top. But winning isn’t always as easy as it looks; not by a long shot. The main reason winners enjoy so much success in their lives isn't real easy, but it's real simple — they have made winning their way of life.

These champions consistently win because they refuse to back down or back up when life deals them a bad hand. Instead of allowing temporary setbacks to keep them down, they invariably bounce back with a renewed enthusiasm, always seeking the path to victory. More than anything else, winners win because they BELIEVE THEY WILL WIN.

"Winning is a habit."
Vincent Lombardi

The top achievers have made winning a habit. While they readily recognize the undeniable fact of life that they cannot win each and every time out, they keep working and plugging until they get the job done — and done right. The positive attitude and positive belief systems that they carry with them at all times — an unwavering belief that they will eventually come out on top — helps them power through life’s most imposing challenges.

A positively charged, optimistic approach to life can do the same for you. If you’re not presently enjoying as much success as you would like, you need to make winning a habit. While it may not always be the easy choice to make, you’ll soon discover that the effort is well worth it.

"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it."
Margaret Thatcher

Hey, sometimes it’s tempting to give up the fight when things aren’t going your way. Very tempting indeed. After all, none of us likes to lose. In fact, most of us really hate it. But sometimes winning is merely a matter of outlasting the losing. As Napoleon reminded us, "Victory belongs to the most persevering." By staying focused and remaining on track, you can overcome any and all obstacles you encounter in life.

"The conditions of conquest are always easy. We have but to toil awhile, endure awhile, believe always and never turn back."
Marcus Annaeus Seneca

To consistently make it to the winner’s circle, you’ve got to persevere and hang in there, especially when the going gets tough. Regardless of whether you like it or not, you’re going to get knocked down on occasion. How you handle these setbacks will ultimately determine the success you enjoy in life. Malcolm Forbes said that "victory is sweetest when you've known defeat."

Roger Bannister, the first man to ever run the mile in under four minutes, said, "The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win." Mr. Bannister, who had repeatedly come up short in his quest to break the four minute barrier, pushed himself beyond what many experts believed was a possibility, past the so-called breaking point — both from a physical as well as a mental perspective — and right into the history books. After finally achieving his goal, he could bask in the exhilaration of victory.

"Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."
Vincent van Gogh

In order to get where you’ve always dreamed of going, a winning attitude is not optional. By constantly pushing yourself beyond your present capabilities, you can drive yourself to previously unimagined heights. You’ve got to believe, more than you’ve ever believed anything in your life, that you do indeed have what it takes to get to the winner’s circle.

After all, when it comes to winning, you can when you believe you can.

The Bottom Line: You’ll start winning when you just say win.
