Nobody wants to be called a loser, but how would you describe yourself?

If you would describe yourself as a 'winner', then that's a good thing.  It shows self-confidence and a can-do attitude, not to mention living a blessed and contented life.  It's my own personal belief, but I tend to lump people into three categories:  Winners, Losers and Wayward Winners.

The winners are those who know what they want, understand their potential and makes things happen (rather than waiting for them to happen).  They squeeze the maximum 'juice' out of life because of their faith, determination and persistence.  They don't need anyone else to motivate them or tell them what to think and feel.  Losers, on the other hand, aren't 'bad people'.  They simply allow circumstances to shape their lives and their self-image... and then blame those circumstances on something or someone else.

I happen to believe that there is a third group as well. This group consists of potential winners whose lives are just slightly out of alignment. I call them wayward winners.  Perhaps they've hit a bump or two in life's journey, and that's knocked them off course and got them temporarily befuddled. A failed relationship, a lost job, financial problems, un-formed goals, a lack of parental support, illness - many things can send us off course temporarily.  That's called life.  Wayward winners are not lost souls; they just need some tweaking, coaching, nudging and a clear course of action to get them back on course. A map might be nice. Many of these wayward winners are easily identifiable because they are always searching.

Right now, there are many wayward winners out there braving rain, sleet and snow because they still believe that they have untapped talents. They attend motivational seminars, listen to inspirational cd's and they plunge onward, believing that sooner or later they will find their way again.  Other wayward winners have temporarily given up.  That's bad.  They are damaged and disoriented - their confidence badly eroded. They tend to drift through life numbly... with precious years passing them by

It is difficult for others to understand the rawness of your tragic loss, your terrible defeat, your broken heart or the aching emptiness of your temporarily unguided spirit.  We've all been there, in one way or another.  But everyone has the capacity to change - to lead meaningful and productive lives by awakening our consciousness to new possibilities.  Usually, it's just a subtle shift in attitude.  But you still need to brace yourself for tough times when you have the goal of changing your life.  When you get into your seat on an airplane, what is the first thing they tell you to do? Fasten your seat belt. Brace yourself for the turbulence because it's going to happen.  When you decide to move your life to the next level of accomplishment (and become a winner!), you must fasten your mental and spiritual seat belts because it is going to be a while before you reach that comfortable level again.  It won't happen overnight, and that's why you need FAITH. You will reach your destination, but you must endure the turbulence of change in order to grow out of your current situation.

Try this technique to help you through the difficult times of change and growth. Find four reasons why you cannot succumb to your fears and your troubles and write them down. Find those deep sources of motivation that can lift you out of the turbulence and above the clouds. You must change your life because, for example:

*You have not yet tapped the talents given you.
*You want to leave something more for your children.
*You want to live life rather than letting life live you.
*You want to do what makes YOU happy.

You simply have to ask yourself, "How badly do I want these things?"  In the end, the strength of your determination and faith is what separates the winners from the losers.  Do you agree or disagree?
