The winner ain't the one with the fastest car its the one who refuses to lose.
Winners must learn to relish change with the same enthusiasm and energy that we have resisted it in the past.
If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.
How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.
Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing.
Although there may be tragedy in your life, there's always a possibility to triumph. It doesn't matter who you are, where you come from. The ability to triumph begins with you. Always.
A winner rebukes and forgives; a loser is too timid to rebuke and too petty to forgive.
Sydney J. Harris
Winners have simply formed the habit of doing things losers don't like to do.
Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward. They may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.
When you're playing against a stacked deck, compete even harder. Show the world how much you'll fight for the winner's circle. If you do, someday the cellophane will crackle off a fresh pack, one that belongs to you, and the cards will be stacked in your favor.
Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.

The winner asks, "May I help?" The loser asks, "Do you expect me to do that?"
William Arthur Ward
The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams.
You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner. Even if you are behind, a sustained look of control and confidence can give you a mental edge that results in victory.
Being the first to cross the finish line makes you a winner in only one phase of life. It's what you do after you cross the line that really counts.
Some people say that I have an attitude- Maybe I do. But I think that you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does- that makes you a winner right there.
If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.
The winner's edge is not in a gifted birth, a high IQ, or in talent. The winner's edge is all in the attitude, not aptitude. Attitude is the criterion for success.
I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.
Winners are determined and focused and they can never lose because they always believe in what they are doing. They bounce back and keep on going whatever obstacles they encounter.
