Real winners who savour victories are those who will keep on winning, pressing themselves to push the limit in order to clinch another triumph. History is then written by these deserved winners. How many people around you have the potential to achieve great things in life? Where have all these people gone? It will be a complete waste if you have the potential to soar greater heights and yet do not seem interested to do so. If people with potential becomes stagnant, it is because they do not build on their victories. Temporary success has clouded their judgment, urging them to rest on their laurels.
Real Victors Keep On Winning
Do you know why and when we throw in the towel and stop trying in life? Interestingly, there are 2 profound reasons why people quit: after being held back by failure and after gaining satisfying success. Yep! Success is a double edge-sword that has made failures of one too many people. Successful people turn into failures because they do not keep trying anymore. They do not build on their momentum and take things for granted.
As the saying goes, the only constant in life is change and that is why once you are on the move, you simply keep on moving. Let's talk about my idol Michael Jordan. Did he stop shooting after his first bucket? The Last Dance has shown us that he is a real winner who keeps on winning. Let's talk about successful writers then. Did Mitch Albom quit writing after his first bestseller? Nope, he keeps on writing bestselling stories that continue to give us motivation and inspiration.

- Perhaps it is a good thing that you haven't seen all your dreams come true. For when you get all you wish for, you will be miserable. To be forever reaching out, to remain unsatisfied is a key to momentum.
You seem successful people clearly knows that each victor that they score is merely a key to open up doors that will bring more adventures and of course challenges. However these challenges serve as opportunities for them to learn and grow even more. It is a privilege to reap the benefit of success which is the opportunity for you to achieve even more. You see opportunities are alive and the more you cherish and seize them, the more lively they will become and multiply into even more valuable opportunities. But once you neglect opportunities, they will wilt and die.
No! No! Don't get me wrong. Nobody is asking you to floor the brakes altogether. You can still stop and stare, and even smell the roses en route to your destination. The key is not to dwell too long in the same spot, rendering you to lose the window to grab victory. Eventually the petals of success will fall, the branches will be pruned and you will only have thorns that will prick you to content with.
Remember this your lifetime through-
Tomorrow there will be more to do.
Failure waits for all those who stay
With some success made yesterday.
Remember that when you are successful, you will be flooded with comfort and luxuries will follow suit too. Just make sure that you do not confuse temporary comfort and wealth with success. It is never about what you obtain that makes you successful, rather it is about your determination in continuing to strive for more that defines your success. Do not let satisfaction divert you from your path to clinch more victories and fulfill your full potential. Remember that history is written by winners!
