Winning is a habit, so is losing!

I come across so many people everyday. Starting from the cab drivers to supposedly well-to-do folks working in multi-national companies. But these differences in professions or status in society doesn't make any difference in habits of people. Habits are very specific to individuals, it has nothing to do with the profession or status in society.

We tend to connect habits with lifestyle, earning, etc. Those "common" habits are what the weak pick up. These are the people who simply go with the flow. Habits define them, they don't define habits.

In my first book that I published a couple of months back, I have created characters who have been categorized into two groups - "One" and "Too Many." I have seen very few people who have the attitude of "doing more than what they are paid for" while most people are the regular "whiners."

You may come across that character in your life who has a habit of complaining about anything and everything in life. They will also tell you why nothing can be done in this world. They will create a lock for every door.

"That target is too high, it cannot be achieved."

"I don't think I can do that."

"What's the use? We are here only for sometime, why try to do so much?"

These are just some of the examples of the "Too Many" who have the habit of being a loser.

The "One" is what the word represents - a small number. People who take challenges and understand the importance of personal development. They are the ones who give their best shot and most of the time come out winners. On the occasions of failures they don't lose heart to join the negative group. They don't complain and blame. They analyse why they failed and move on to try again, this time to achieve something even better!

Your habits define who you are and who you will become. Remember, if your habits control you, you lack will power. If you control your habits you have greater control over your life and your goals. That is when you can build that habit of being a winner in everything that you do!
