Overview

Turn off the whining—and start winning in life.

Let's be honest. Life can push you in unpredictable directions. But it's up to you as to how you react and what you do with the advantages life offers you. The way you handle life's bumps and opportunities is what distinguishes the winners in life from the whiners.

The Top 10 Distinctions Between Winners and Whiners puts a powerful spotlight on the many ways we can sabotage our own growth—and shows how to change your mindset from one of resignation and inactivity to action, energy, and self-fulfillment in both your professional and personal life.

Whether you want to make a radical change of mindset or make small changes to improve your winning attitude, Keith Cameron Smith has the guidance and affirmation you're looking for. Helping you to enact change with both your heart and your head, Keith's 10 Distinctions will give you the clarity and confidence to make the most of every twist and turn. He explores such truths as:

  • Winners can have what they want. Whiners want what they cannot have.
  • Winners find a way. Whiners find an excuse.
  • Winners listen twice as much as they talk. Whiners talk twice as much as they listen.
  • Winners enjoy life's journeys. Whiners put their joy in the destinations.

Even if you already consider yourself a winner, there's always room for improvement. We all whine from time to time, but whining doesn't contribute to positive change—it merely feeds the fear that holds you back from making true progress and growth in your life.

Sharing powerful quotes from winners throughout history, personal accounts of disappointment and renewal, and confidence-boosting examples of the right mindset for winning, The Top 10 Distinctions Between Winners and Whiners gives you the tools to plot out your goals, tackle your obstacles, and become a true winner in every aspect of your life.

    more from this reviewer

    A good book that deserves better editing and design

    A book with good content, but a better page layout with more intuitive line breaks, subheadings, etc. would have given it more character, made it more enjoyable to read, and made the information easier to retain. I found myself re-reading many sections of the book because the author jumps from Winner to Whiner and back again with great frequency. If this book had a better editor and page designer, I would have given it 4-stars. It's a quick read at a slim 93 pages, so it's worth a read (even if you have to re-read a few lines in order to make certain you comprehended a passage correctly.)
