TIANA BURSE: The Difference between Winning and Losing

sac-button-tianaOPINION – Have you ever wondered what the difference is between those who truly succeed in the eyes of world and those who don’t?

Recently I have begun doing what I like to call a “check up from the neck up” diving into the REAL reason why some things manifest so effortlessly for some individuals while having the opposite circumstances for others.

While studying the dynamics of this, I ran across a tale of two brothers who were gifted a life of the same opportunities. Both born out of a angry, violent, and alcoholic father who was in and out of jail more often than not while the two were growing up, they both recall very different memories they received from their dad.

As time passed, both grew up to become men. Ironically one brother ended up just like his father, while the other one built a successful business, raised beautiful children and became a loving husband to his wife.

When asked the same question:

“How did you end up like this?”

Both brothers responded with the same answer:

“When you have a father like I had, what were my options.”

So, in the end what is the real difference maker in creating a winning, purpose driven life?
The answer is simple; it truly lies in what story you sell yourself on a daily basis. Life will never be easy nor will it always go the way we would like. But one thing is certain, and that is when you sell yourself everyday on the philosophies below…
You will win in every area of your life.

1. Hanging on, persevering,
WINNING
Letting go, giving up easily,
LOSING

2. Accepting responsibility for your actions,
WINNING
Always having an excuse for your actions,
LOSING

3. Taking the initiative,
WINNING
Waiting to be told what to do,
LOSING

4. Knowing what you want and setting goals to achieve it,
WINNING
Wishing for things, but taking no action,
LOSING

5. Seeing the big picture, and setting your goals accordingly,
WINNING
Seeing only where you are today,
LOSING

Adopt a WINNING attitude!
Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
