Are you a winner or a loser?

Winner - Are you a winner?

In this game of life, we tend to play roles. And expectedly, not everyone is a winner. As you assess your personal achievement at this stage, would consider yourself a winner, a loser or plain mediocre. Why?

What I think and believe is there is no winning or losing game in life. As we think at those point as we won something may not be a true success for us in course of time also the losing part which might give fruitful results later on. So be optimistic! :)

I couldn't say I am a winner, neither will I say that I am a loser. And I haven't played the role in a mediocre manner or I wouldn't do it at all. I just feel that even at the age of 33 and married, I still have a lot of things to look forward to; many dreams are still waiting to come true. And if I say I am a winner, I might one day find myself back to square one and have to eat my words. If, on the other hand, I say I am a loser, I might simply resign myself to what I believe and refuse to move forward even when every door is opened for me.

you sort of confused me. you are neither of the three .. and that couldn't happen .. unless you view life on a third person's point of view. sometimes, we need to assess and check on our selves to determine where we are and where we want to go.

With or without achievements in my life, amidst all the failures i made, i am a winner in the real sense of the word because i am still alive and strong after all the hardships, sacrifices and struggles i faced.

I would say I'm a winner because by far I've been lucky in life and the things I've wanted have happened to me. Of course there have been downs but more ups and victories than losses. I feel good about myself many a time, and thank God for making my life so wonderful!:)

Right now i would certainly not call myself a winner. i hope one day i will be. I am sitting here instead of beeing at work. I cannot even go get my own mail, but are dependent on my partner for most everything. I just sit or lie in my apartment all day every day. feels like my life is passing by without me participating. Goold hing i can communicate with people online. otherwise I think i would go mad. But i am doing ok. The sun is shining. I just sat on my veranda and enjoyed the heat of the sunshine on my face. Spring is coming!

Compared to most people, I am certainly a winner. I'm not trying to brag, but my husband and I have successful careers, enough to afford a nice home, a nice car and a lot of things. We don't sit around waiting for god things to happen to us, we go out and make them happen for us.

You aare right. Life is a matter of role playing, "so go out there and be the best that you can be." I consider myself a winner although I have failed in so many areas of my life so many times. Despite of losing, I take pride of myself for having played my roles fairly and having given my best shots. There is dignity in losing if you have done your best,if you are just and honest, and if you have the courage to stand up and try again. I think that makes me a winner.

I really do not prefer to label people as winners or losers. Don't you feel it is a rather practical way of looking at things? In life, there is no victories or defeats.
