It has been said that sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war. There’s a winner in you no matter how many times you have been defeated. Each of us can allow the winner in us to emerge if we are inspired to nurture our spirits with courage, faith and hope.
Just like Brian Tracy puts it, “Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.” I strongly believe the following quotes will inspire you to manufacture your own positive expectations to bring out the winner locked up inside you.
