A Winner Goes the Extra Mile

I recently came across this poem called "A Winner’s Attitude." I don’t know who the author is, but I really like the poem. The poem has valuable leadership lessons, especially when it comes to serving our customers in earnest, overcoming challenges and obstacles, and always striving for betterment and growth. Hope you enjoy it as I did.


A Winner's Attitude

A winner always has a program.

A loser always has an excuse.

A winner says, "Let me do it for you."

A loser says, "That's not my job."

A winner sees an answer for every problem.

A loser sees a problem for every answer.

A winner says, "It may be difficult, but it's possible."

A loser say, "It may be possible, but it's too difficult."

A winner listens.

A loser just waits until it's his turn to talk.

When a winner makes a mistake, he says, "I was wrong."

When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn't my fault."

A winner says, "I'm good, but not as good as I could be."

A loser says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people."

A winner feels responsible for more than his job.

A loser says, "I just work here."
