Winners and Losers

Source unknown

The winner glories in the good; the whiner majors in the mediocre. Winners' thinking processes differ from other people's. As part of their normal, moment-to-moment stream of consciousness, winners think constantly in terms of I can and I will. Losers concentrate their waking thoughts on…what they should have done … would have done … what they can't do. When the mind's self-talk is positive, performance is more likely to be successful.

The huge majority of our negative doubts and fears are imaginary or beyond our control.
