Winner Defined

You are a winner if you keep achieving your stretch goals and are happy in your own skin.


Winners approach impossible as possible. Losers approach possible as impossible. Vadim Kotelnikov quotes



Seeing Life Differently

The secret of winning in life lies in seeing life differently - in its different shades and outcomes. "Life becomes a path that leads to achievements. Winners do not value life as much as what they can do with it. For them life is not a tedious journey from the womb to the tomb. It is a journey about crossing milestones and looking forward to new ones."4

The Magic of Your Attitude

Changing Yourself

The best place to start is to change yourself. If whatever you do doesn't work, you must be flexible - you must change your action plan if the current one does not produce the required results. If you want other people to change, you must be prepared to make the first step yourself. If you cannot change your environment, you should change your attitude.

A Win is a Win-Win

"The winners stun us not by their cleverness, but by the fact that every tiny aspect of the business is just a touch better than the norm." ~ Tim Peters

Success is 99% Failure

To err is human. If there is no mistake, there is no initiative. Not to admit a mistake or a failure is a sign of weakness.

Remember always the NLP presupposition: "There is no failure, only feedback." Through mistakes to success – that's really what experience means. Mistakes can be your most effective teacher.

"Just like a great building stands on a strong foundation, so does success. And the foundation of success is attitude."

Take Risks

The biggest risk is not taking risks. If you venture nothing, you win nothing. "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing," says Helen Keller... More Risk Taking Quotes
