WINNERS

WHAT MAKES US AN WINNER?  IS THERE A CEILING HEIGHT OF MONEY WE NEED TO MAKE TO BE CONSIDERED A WINNER?  IS BEING A WINNER DETERMINED IF YOU MEET SPECIFIC CRITERIA? DO YOU HAVE TO REACH THE TOP OF EVERY MOUNTAIN TO BE CONSIDERED A WINNER?  I DON’T BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE.  BEING A WINNER, IS WHEN WE’RE DOING THE BEST WE’RE ABLE TO EVERY DAY.  

BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF A WINNER IN THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY.  

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF WINNER-1.  A PERSON OR THING THAT WINS SOMETHING  2.  A THING THAT IS A SUCCESS OR LIKELY TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION OF WINNER-A WINNER IS SOMEONE THAT GIVES LIFE ONE HUNDRED OF WHO HE IN SOME WAY UTILIZING THEIR PURPOSE IN LIFE.

MANY OF US THINK OF WINNERS AS THE LEADER OF A RACE CROSSING THE FINISH LINE FIRST.  I FEEL WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, SO OUR SKILL SETS AND TALENTS ARE AS WELL.  WE CAN BE A WINNER BY MAKING OTHERS FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHO THEY ARE. JUST A HANDFUL OF TEACHERS ARE WINNERS.  THESE TEACHERS ARE THE ONES THAT CAN TAKE A CHALLENGING STUDENT AND SOMEHOW OPEN THE PATHWAY TO LEARNING.  WE ALL LEARN THINGS DIFFERENTLY SO WE NEED A UNIQUE APPROACH WHEN BEING TAUGHT SOMETHING NEW.  

THERE IS A QUOTE I REALLY LIKE, THAT GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS:  THE WINNER IS NOT THE ONE WHO CROSSES THE FINISH LINE FIRST, BUT THE ONE WHO CROSSES NEXT AND HIS FIRST THOUGHT IS TO CONGRATULATE THE PERSON THAT OFFICIALLY WON THAT RACE.  WHO DO YOU BELIEVE THE WINNER IS IN THIS SITUATION?

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR GOOD AT, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO DEFINE SUCCESS. YOU’RE A WINNER IN YOUR OWN WAY!  WINNERS TAKE THE PATH TO SUCCESS, CLIMBING EVERY STEP POSSIBLE TO BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE.  THIS IS A WINNER IS THE TRUEST SENSE OF THE WORLD.  

WHO OR WHAT  IS A WINNER IF YOU HAD A DEFINITION TO GIVE?  IS IT THE ONE WHO RAN THE RACE AND CAME IN FIRST, OR THE ONE WHO HAD THE COURAGE TO RUN IT KNOWING HE MOST LIKELY WOULDN’T WIN? WHEN HE DIDN’T, THE FIRST THING HE DID WAS CONGRATULATE THE OFFICIAL WINNER.  I KNOW WHO I CONSIDER TO BE A WINNER AND WHAT MERITS THEY MUST EXHIBIT FOR ME TO DECIDE THEY ARE ONE.  GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP IS NOT AS EASY TO HAVE AS MOST OF US THINK IT IS OR WE ALL WOULD BE THE FIRST TO CONGRATULATE THE WINNER INSTEAD OF FEELING SORRY FOR OURSELVES THAT WE DIDN’T WIN!  WE WOULD GO OVER TO THE WINNER AND LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE AMAZING.  

DO YOUR BEST IN LIFE TO BE A TEACHER IN EVERY MERIT BY SETTING AN EXAMPLE WORTH LEARNING. INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE A WINNER FROM THE INSIDE, WILL ULTIMATELY  LEARN HOW TO WIN THE RACE AS WELL.  HOWEVER, HUMILITY, NOT EGO IS THEIR COMPASS IN LIFE AND THEY LEARN FROM EVERY CHALLENGE EVEN IF THEY LOSE THE FIRST TIME AROUND.  THIS IS CALLED “DETERMINATION” AND IS ONE TRAIT A WINNER ALWAYS HAS BECAUSE THEY ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO GROW AS A PERSON.  

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A TRUE WINNER IN LIFE IN MY BOOK.  RIGHT UNDERNEATH THIS POST, IS AN AREA THAT SAYS, “JOIN THE DISCUSSION” IS A COMMENT SECTION.  I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT WHO A WINNER IS.  YOU CAN CONVEY THIS WITH A COMMENT, POEM OR EVEN A QUOTE.  I WILL BE WATCHING FOR THEM SO WE CAN TAKE THIS LEARNING CURVE IT DESERVES ASSIGNED TO IT.  

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING WHAT REAL WINNING IS ALL ABOUT.  IT IS ABOUT HUMILITY RATHER THAN PRIDE, HUMANITY RATHER THAN EGO, AND WANTING TO GROW INSTEAD OF FEELING YOU ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWERS BEFORE THE OTHER PERSON CAN EVEN FINISH THE QUESTION.  

THANKS AGAIN, SAMANTHA LEBOEUF/DWW

I will start. For me, being a winner is one who makes their dream come true. The one who works hard, learns hard and sacrifices hard to hit that finish line. The one who at least earns the “E” for effort. Most people don’t get that far.
