This concept comes up a lot during financial counseling or business psychology. This quote, related by @therealkiyosaki, clearly and simply outlines one of the key differences between those who have an attitude of ‘winning’, of ‘making it big’, and those who will remain careful and cynical, just at the brink of success. The business cynic will find something wrong with every opportunity, and this will inevitably hold them back. Nothing will ever be good enough for them to consider moving forward.
The winner, on the other hand, will not jump into opportunities blindly - but will analyze instead of criticize. They will look at all the angles and choose the best route forward.
Much like most well-found theories, this one is not confined to the area in which it was created, in this case, finance and business. Instead, it applies across the board to any risk or opportunity we are presented with in life.
With an attitude of cynicism, it’s hard to move forward into anything bigger or greater. There is always something that will deter us, and we will stay put.
With a winner’s attitude, we analyze and seek and wonder. We use our curiosity and creativity to find ways to grow and advance.
In therapy, we can delve into the ‘why’ behind our attitude. We can evaluate what our ‘default setting’ seems to be and wonder about how it is helping us or stopping us. And, we can work on removing obstacles that may have been put before us.
Yet no matter where we’ve been or what seems to be ahead of us, a winner’s sharp analysis will always produce more than a cynic’s criticism.
