ARE YOU A WINNER?

"The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do." Denis Waitly

Down which path are your thoughts taking you right now? To the winner's prize or the loser's slump? Is it time for an attitude check?

It's a matter of the mind. As the above quote says, the thought life of a winner differs vastly from that of a loser. The mind is a powerful tool that we can use to create either productivity and prosperity, or we can use it to our own destruction. What good can possibly come by concentrating on what might have been, what we should have done? "If only..." thoughts waste energy. We can't turn back the clock. All we have is this moment. We choose how that moment will be used. Energy given to negative thinking will wear us down, drain us of all ambition and reason to live, but energy given to positive thoughts will lift us up out of the ordinary into a place of possibilities.

We all have limitations, but why dwell on those when we can concentrate on all the things we can do? However limited we may be, there is something we can do, and if we work at it, we might even become an expert at it. Why self-destruct when we can live out a dream?

Let's determine to monitor our thoughts closely. When those "If only", "I should have", and "I can't" phrases pop up, let's be ready to shoot them down with positive words: "I can", "I will", "It is possible". Guard your mind at all times. Put up an inner shield against the negative--the enemy, and open up a clear channel for the positive--our champion.

You can. You will. It is possible. Life is good. You are a winner. Period.
