Winners Are People Like You

Winners Are People Like You-Nancye Sims
Winners take chances.
Like everyone else, they fear failing,
But they refuse to let fear control them.
Winners don’t give up.
When life gets rough, they hang in
Until the going gets better.
Winners are flexible.
They realize there is more than one way
And are willing to try others.
Winners know they are not perfect.
They respect their weaknesses
While making the most of their strengths.
Winners fail, but they don’t stay down.
They stubbornly refuse to let a fall
Keep them from climbing . . . . .
Winners don’t blame
Fate for their failures,
Nor luck for their successes.
Winners accept responsibility
For their lives.
Winners are positive thinkers
Who see good in all things.
From the ordinary, they make
The extraordinary.
Winners believe in the path they have chosen
Even when it’s hard,
Even when others can’t see
Where they are going.
Winners are patient.
They know a goal is only as worthy
As the effort that’s required
To achieve it.
Winners are people like you.
They make the world a better place to be
