Success Comes through Winning Attitude

Updated on May 18, 2013

winning attitude

You want a luxury house? And lot of money? Perhaps you want to be the top boss at your job? And you undoubtedly want fame and fortune in your career?

Sure, everyone wants these things. Very few people, however, attain them. The secret to worldly success is winning attitude. How you look at things and what you think determines to a great extent your success in life.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. It is our disposition, perspective, viewpoint, or outlook.

Your attitude affects others as well as you. It impacts every one you interact with from your family to the stranger you smile at on the street corner. Wayne Dyer rightly says, "I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside".

The secret to winning in life is to create a winning attitude. You must think, see, and visualize like a winner for you to win. The moment you say, “I can’t”, “I don’t think I am capable”, “There is too much of competition out there”, “I don’t stand a chance”, consider yourself having already forfeited your chance to win.

This attitude of negativity goes on reinforcing and you ultimately end up as a loser in enterprise. On the other hand, once you begin to assert you right to win, you stand a solid chance to win and no set back can take away your attitude. When Alexander was on a world conquering spree, he crossed the Indus. The Indian King on the other side of the river Indus was reputedly a powerful king with a large contingent of elephants. Alexander’s weary men had almost given up the battle but Alexander was ever a winner with an attitude of a true winner. He told his men, they were going to fight till the end and were not to return defeated. Alexander won the battle. The large elephant contingent of King Porus running wildly amuck in utter confusion stampeded their own men. King Porus himself was no less of a winner with winning attitude. He was caught and brought before Alexander, who asked him “How would you like to be treated?” Porus didn’t feel defeated at all. His attitude was still of a winner. “As a King treats another King” replied Porus. Alexander was highly impressed by the reply. He accorded King Porus, the highest honor due to a king. Alexander gave away every thing including the land he had won from Porus and let him rule as a sovereign.

It is not difficult to guess what might have happened if Alexander and Porus did not have a winning attitude. Alexander could not have come as far as Indus from Greece without the winning attitude. Alexander might have lost the battle without fighting if he like his men believed he could not possibly defeat the strong army of the Indian king. He might have returned without crossing the Indus. Similarly, any other King in Porus’ place might have pleaded mercy. But Porus was bold and brave. He stated his mind that he must be treated like a king. And he got what he wanted.

You are never defeated when you possess a winning attitude. A winning attitude comes out of confidence in one’s skills and abilities. A winning attitude is a natural expression of those intrepid diehard souls that never ever ever ever …give up.
