BEING A WINNER

TYPES OF PERSONALITY
 Four kinds of people:

 1. Those who make things happen


 2. Those who watch things happen
 3. Those who wonder what happened
 4. Those who don't know that anything happened

There is a quote which reads.........


“There are people who make things happen,
There are people who watch things happen and
There are people who ask “what happened”.
Some win, some lose, depending on how much they develop their personalities every day.

Let's define the term "winner":

"the person or team with the best score (i.e. points,
goals, runs, time, etc.)."
 A better definition of a winner is
"someone who gives 100 percent of their effort in
preparation for and during competition.“
 However, winning involves more than just beating
your opponent on the scoreboard.

When you're a winner you're always happy,


but if you're happy as a loser you'll always be a loser.

The winner is the chef who takes the same ingredients as everyone else and
produces the best results.
Four Characteristics of a Winner
1. A Winner Knows What it Means to Be a
Winner

2. A Winner Must Set High Goals
 "If you are aiming at nothing, you'll hit it
every time."
 People who set goals may not always reach
them, but they will almost always achieve
more than those who set no goals at all.

Who has never tasted what is bitter does not know what is sweet.
Example: Glen Cunningham

Satisfaction does not come with achievement, but with effort. Full effort is full victory.

3. A Winner is Disciplined

 Setting high goals is a waste of time if you


aren't willing to work hard to achieve them.

Winning is everything.
The only one’s who remember you when you come second are your wife and your dog.

4. A Winner Has Strong Motivation
What motivates you to push yourself?
Some examples could include:
 The thrill of winning
 It makes you feel good about yourself
 To impress others, such as friends, parents, or a
girlfriend or boyfriend
 To gain recognition

Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing.
REAL LIFE INCIDENTS
“DON’T QUIT”
Failures are stepping stones for success
 When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000
experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it
felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the
light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process".

 A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying attention to his


mathematics
and for not being able to solve simple problems. She told him that you
would not become anybody in life. The boy was Albert Einstein.

 A small boy--the fifth amongst seven siblings of a poor father, was selling
newspapers in a small village to earn his living. He was not exceptionally
smart at school but was fascinated by religion and rockets. The first
rocket he built crashed. A missile that he built crashed multiple times and
he was made a butt of ridicule. He is the person to have scripted the Space
Odyssey of India single-handedly. He is Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
