A Winners Attitude

Updated on December 27, 2014

Keep Trying Know Matter What

It really does help


When things look bleak

Don't stop

Try harder

Think of a way to turn things around

If that way doesn't help

Think of another

Don't lose your control or composure

Think of every problem as a word problem

It might take hours or days

The first solution may not be the right one

It is silly to yell and scream

Drop the attitude

Why do some people feel they can act like a child

When things don't go their way

Stamping their feet and much worse

Slamming things and breaking things

What do you accomplish ?

What good will it do ?

You have to stay calm


Use your mind

Your brain will keep on working

Trying to solve the problem

You have to give it some time

It will work 24 hours around the clock

Even while you sleep

Don't be surprised if you wake up in the middle of the night

With a solution out of the blue

You have to learn to trust

Practice small problems

After trial and error

It will become easier

You can shock yourself

Into doing not just a good job

An incredible one when no one else could

We all have different gifts and talents

Over Christmas a friend of mine got these Mensa tests

Different cards with different mind boggling questions

Boy are they hard

I had to peak at the solutions on the back

In the beginning it felt impossible

I had enough

I gave it a rest

Went back to it and went over the answers again in my head

Each time I did it

It felt easier

I am still a long way away to solving the problems

Slowly I feel my mind thinking differently

Saying I can do that

Only time will tell

I just wanted to share my day with you

Are you good with crossword puzzles, word search and other similar type games ?

Have a good day

Remember if you can't figure something out

You weren't the first and won't be the last

Try again

Let me know how you do ?

I am still scratching my head

Thinking what do I do ?

      I have a way to test myself by asking myself questions and seeing if I can answer them all. If I fail at some point then I jot down what I couldn't answer and try to solve it at another time. I think that training the brain has a lot to do with keeping a good memory.
