  The Big Difference between Winner and Loser
This poem witten by Yaniv Konchitchki (at Stanford University) in Oct. 2004


  1. A Winner makes mistakes and says: I was wrong. But a Loser says: it wasn't my fault.

  2. A Winner credits his good luck for winning even though it wasn't luck.
    But a Loser credits his bad luck for losing, but it wasn't about luck.

  3. A Winner works harder than a looser and has more time.
    But a Loser is always too busy too busy saying a failure.

  4. A Winner goes through a problem and a loser goes around.

  5. A Winner shows his sorry by making up for it.
    But a Loser says his sorry but he does the same thing next time.

  6. A Winner knows what to fight for and what to compromise on.
    But a Loser compromise on what he should not and fights for what isn't worth fighting for.

  7. A Winner says I am good, but not as good as I ought to be.
    But a Loser looks down at those who have not yet achieved the position he has.

  8. A Winner respects those who are superior to him and to him and tries to learn from them.
    But a Loser resents those who are superior to him and tries to find fault.

  9. A Winner is responsible for more than his job.
    But a Loser says, I only work here.

  10. A Winner says, "There ought to be a better way of doing it".
    But a Loser says why change it, that's the way it has always been done.

  One of life little ironies in the fact that when you finally master a tough job, you make it look easy.
