Most people who become winners don’t embark on their championship run saying, “I hope to someday become a champion.” They literally think about that goal each and every day, and do everything in their power to make sure it happens. They want more than anything for their desire to become reality. They live it, they breathe it, they obsess over it, and they don’t make excuses when things don’t go right.
Of course, it isn’t enough to merely set a goal and visualize that goal. It isn’t enough to merely want something. You’ve got to TAKE SOME ACTION.
Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Winners are willing. They don’t expect something for nothing. And they don’t expect anyone else to do it for them. Winners accept complete responsibility for their lives, and they don’t make excuses. They’re very tenacious. They keep at it.
As Winston Churchill said, “It’s no use saying you are doing your best. You have got to do what is necessary. ”
Every time you don’t win a race and make an excuse you are being not respectful with the winner. The winner deserves respect. Keep quiet, go back to work and do better next time.
