Let's be truthful here, do you strongly contend that people are divided into WINNERS &
LOSERS & SUCCESSES & FAILURES?
No, I don't "strongly contend" that at all. Whether a person is a so-called winner or loser is very subjective. It is subjective both to those who might be labelled winners or losers, and to those doing the labeling. It is simply opinion, and opinion is nothing more than an idea which has solidified in the mind of those who hold that idea. This, of course, being based on the conditioning of the person who holds that idea.
Yes, there are people who are winners. Conversely, there are those who are losers. There is a marked difference between the two dichotomous personalities. People love, admire, & respect winners. Winners have a can do persona. They are SMART & act accordingly. They are self-assured & believe that nothing is impossible. Winners are idolized in American culture & society. They are to be emulated.
Losers, au contraire, are despised & even reviled by people. They are the personae non gratae. No one in his/her thinking mind doesn't want to be a loser. People don't want to associate w/such negative people. Losers are passive, negative, & fatalistic people who feel that nothing they do will ever work out. They feel that anything they do won't ever come to fruition & their self-fulfilling prophecy oftentimes comes true.
Then a subcategory to the winners & losers are the successes & failures. Successes are winners. These are the people who succeed at almost everything they do. They aim high & accomplish their goals. They seldom fail because they don't view failure as an option. Success is just as natural as breathing to them. They realize that success propels one to further opportunities while failure only retards their progress.
Conversely, losers are failures & failure are losers. These people are toxic & have a negative outlook towards life. Losers feel that they are finished before they start so they make a half-hearted effort to achieve their goals. Since they expend minimum or no effort, they are left w/no other recourse but to fail. Because they refuse to try, they always miss their mark. As a result of always missing their mark, they have an anti-achievement & anti-success mindset which permeates into every facet of their lives. They believe that they don't deserve success. They may even progress to hating success & what it means.
I think people are both. And, sometimes to win one something, one has to lose another something.
