Wise Word for Self Development ( I )

Reading books about self development is one activity that I like to do recently. This is not only for my self but also for my first daughter. Since I knew she had a negative attitude, lack of self-confidence and motivation, I began to find the way to encourage her to be better.

This wise word, taken from “Fight Like a Tiger, Win like a Champion" by Darmadi Darmawangsa and Imam Munadhi, just like a mirror which shows me a part of my first daughter. Well, at least I knew her problems, and I hope I can encourage her, change her point of view to be the winner.


The Winner is always part of the answer.

The loser is always part of the problem.

The Winner says,” Let me do it for you.”

The Loser says,” That’s not my job.”

The Winner sees an answer for every problem;

The Loser sees a problem in every answer.

The Winner goes through a problem;

The Loser goes around a problem and never gets to it.

The Winner says,” It may be difficult, but it’s possible.”

The Loser says,” It may be possible, but it’s too difficult.”

The Winner thinks,” I am good, but not as good as I could be.”

The Loser thinks,” I am not as bad as some of others.”

The Winner makes commitment;

The Loser makes promises.

The Winner focuses the gain;

The Loser focuses the pain.

The Winner is like a thermostat;

The Loser is like a thermometer.

The Winner makes it happen;

The Loser let it happen.

Quiters never win; Winner never quit.

That's very interesting! I've never thought about it before. Despite all winners and losers are quite opposite, they always go though life together.
