Winners are simply willing to do what losers won't.

Winners are simply willing to do what losers won't.


This is a quote from Million Dollar Baby movie, pretend that your name is at the front] “[Your Name Here ] practically lives at the [wherever you are] , where a sign on the wall reads: "Winners are simply willing to do what losers won't."


Another way of looking at it is, “So do you play to win or do you play to play?”


I can honestly say that I’ve never “played to lose”.  Either I play to win or I play to get better and learn the strategy, and am still playing to try to win.


Losers give up.  Winners keep trying.  Winners are willing to play and play and play in order to get better at the mechanics or call it practice.


You cannot win without practice period.  There is no other way to win.


Oh, sometimes there is beginners luck but that will eventually show when you can never produce another win.


Of course, Dear Readers and Dear Writers, we are talking about writing not playing games.


My encouragement, my enticement, my direction, my focus for me and for you is to keep trying and never give up, never stop, never accept anything up getting published.


Whether it is an article or a book, it does not matter.  Keep after it and keep trying.


You are my inspiration and why I keep going.  This article and every article I write is my commitment to you and myself that we will eventually make it and get to that sweet spot.


A Think Piece by David Alan Binder

There are more variations like:

Winners don't quit and losers do.

(based on the keep trying until you win theory)

There are others but whatever motivates and keeps you going is the one that you will stick with.
