A Loser Or An Achiever

Abrahamn LincolnWhat distinguishes a loser from an achiever? I have read several success stories. I have also compared and rated successful people and read about their achievements. What is my conclusion? What distinguishes a real achiever?

Abraham Lincoln is one of the best examples of a genuine failure and of a big achiever, who won himself and everyone else despite all setbacks. Read again: “Who won himself…”

In 1831 Abraham founded a company, which did not succeed. After that one failed he established a new one, which also ended in a bankruptcy.

In 1838, 1840 and 1843 he applied for United States congress without succeeding. He finally succeeded in 1846 at last but was released out already after two years.

Next time he applied for Senate in 1855 ― without success ― and for a vice–president already in following year. But he was a man, who never gave up. Finally he won and became the 16 th president of the United States.

Everyone faces difficulties in their lives. Achievers have learned to deal with difficulties, to live with them, and eventually to walk over them with creative solutions. They simply do not give in.

A loser turns on his heels, walks away and looks for a new job. He blames the job, the products, indeed anything but himself. He expects the next job to be easier and the new grass to be greener. You cannot run from yourself, not even in a new job.

Eventually you make the desicion, are you…

A DIAMOND TIPThe only way to succeeded in is to take responsibility and change from a loser’s attitude to an achiever’s attitude.
