The Big Difference Between Winners & Losers

Over the years I've had the privilege of working with some very successful property investors, business people and entrepreneurs and I've also met many not-so-successful investors and business people.

And I've found that, in general, people fall into one of two groups.

Those who make excuses and those who don't.


The ones who make excuses don't start that way.

No one is born talented at making excuses.

But over the years they learn to get out of things.

They learn how to blame the economy, their parents, their teachers, the system, and pretty much anything that can deflect the blame.

These give them the excuse they need.

And then there are those who don't

Or rather won't.

We all have our difficulties and some days we feel like making excuses.

But winners stop themselves.

They don't make excuses and get the job done.

Interestingly we all have similar capabilities.

Yes we have similar capabilities to get things done or not (and make excuses about it.)

When you wake up in the morning you get to choose which route to take.

I recently read this insightful quote:

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that smart people hate doing the same things that unsuccessful people hate doing - but successful people do it anyway.

As you go on this journey we call life, you'll get the chance to back out and make excuses.

Or not.

You have the choice.

You decide.

Exactly right! I am successful as a person because I don't make excuses but I am unsuccessful at investing because I never did the things that successful investors hate doing too, but do anyway. I am talking about bookkeeping, goal setting, getting a ...Read full version
