Northeast Consulting Group, Inc. Reviews: Winners vs. Losers

 

Northeast Consulting Group, Inc. asked our people some questions today about winners and losers.

 

How would you classify a winner?

–          Go getter

–          Determined

–          Competitive

–          Self motivated

–          A master of their craft

 

How would you classify a loser?

–          Quitter

–          Lazy

–          Excuse maker

–          Drama Queen/King

–          Person who has a “dark cloud” following them

 

Would you think of these people as winners or losers?
1.       Babe Ruth? (Office answer: No)
2.       Jim Carey? (Office answer: No)
3.       Michael Jordan? (Office answer: No)
4.       Jack Nicholas? (Office answer: No)
5.       Billy Joel? (Office answer: No)
 

When we asked them why they thought these people were all winners, the unanimous response was because they are all well known, successful, and they match the reasons why they mentioned earlier as to what defines a winner.

 

But, what is less known about these people are all the failures that they had to endure to get to the place where they are recognized now for their greatness.

 

Babe Ruth

–  Holds the record for the most strike-outs in the National Baseball League

 

            Jim Cary
– Went on 3000 failed auditions before he got his first gig on “In Living Color.”
 

         Michael Jordan

       – Was cut from his high school basketball team and has been missed more than 2000 shots in his career
 

          Jack Nicholas

           –   Has the most 2nd place wins in Golf
     

           Billy Joel
  –  Was homeless for over 2 years before he finally got his big break in music

 

So, why doesn’t anyone classify these people as losers?

–          Well, all of them have one thing in common. Determination. No matter how many times they failed at something they kept going. Their dreams were more important than the obstacles that got in their way.

–          No one remembers any of the bad things that happen, all they remember are the good and all that they have accomplished

 
Facts about winners and losers:
1.       A loser is always part of the problem, A winner is always part of the solution
2.       A loser always has an excuse, a winner always takes responsibility
3.       A loser says, “that’s not my job!” while a winner says, “let me do that for you”
4.       A loser sees the sand trap on the green, a winner see’s the green around the sand trap
5.       A loser says it’s impossible, a winner says, it might e difficult, but it’s not impossible

 

The only difference between a “winner” and a “loser” is mindset. The only time someone loses is when they give up on reaching their goals. So today and from now on, decide who you want to be. A winner or a loser.
