  1. How do you know winners don’t do these things? This sounds very subjective (have you tried to disprove any of these statements?)

      1. Can you prove that Winners don’t look down on others who aren’t winners, don’t care that other people aren’t encouraging them or don’t ignore their own weaknesses and bad habits? How do you know this, how did you establish that winners don’t do these things?

        Steve Jobs was a ‘winner’ and was guilty of many of these things!

        1. It depends on your definition of a “winner”, right? You consider Steve Jobs to be a “winner” — and I don’t disagree.

          We looked at 1000+ ordinary people who ended up achieving outrageous success and tracked their habits and mindset. We call those people “winners”. They are the basis for this article.


  2. Agree “winners” can be classed as multiple things. The list provided is excellent and can be used multiple ways…what it shows is that when the going gets a tough, or they face roadblocks, they dig deep and find solutions. The “winners” can be individuals or leaders in a team and they know how to adapt to situations and how to encourage/mentor others to reach success levels they probably didn’t think was possible. The winners can be applied in any organisation business or not-for-profit.
