Since ancient times, society has always praised winners. Winning is and has become the central core of society, and everything that we do revolves around this one dynamic. And I just want to add a favourite quote “Winners never quit and quitters never win”.

As you’ve undoubtedly discovered, the game of life is often quite difficult. You will face unexpected challenges and long periods of frustration. You will often struggle with self-doubt, feel overwhelmed by helplessness and loss.

Alonso Ontiveros says victory tastes very sweet and there are many advantages to winning, as the harder the win was, the sweeter the taste of victory is.  You start feeling better about yourself and you improve your confidence, you boost up your morale and your desire to win, becomes greater than the fear of losing.

Imagine you are in a race, but you don’t know where is the finishing line, would you be able to win? No, you wouldn’t. That’s why you need a specific target, you need to know exactly what direction are you going in, and where the finishing line is.  And learn to work towards something rather than working aimlessly said Alonso Ontiveros.

One thing that we all want is to win at life and to become successful. Billions of humans all over the globe want victory in all they do. But the very interesting and amazing thing with life is that not everyone becomes a winner at the end of it all.

Nothing good comes easy, so you really must be focused in all you do. With focus, you can achieve practically anything you set your mind at but you must also know that this is not just about focus but sustained and consistent focus.

It makes no sense to be focused for one day and then distracted for another. Winners do not work like that; they have trained themselves to become so sophisticated that they maintain their focus from the very beginning to the end of whatever projects they are working on.

There are others that have to cope with losses upon losses. But the smart ones are able to also become winners by studying other winners and replicating their strategies so they too can become winners in their different capacities in life. We are all human beings and sometimes we make poor choices. We need to learn from these mistakes and know that setbacks are a part of life, most of the time they are temporary and we need to deal with them in a positive way. 

The goal of life is simple: it is to level up as much as possible. Each level in life presents a particular challenge that you must overcome. Once you overcome that challenge, you get to move on to the next level. The goal is to complete as many levels as possible.

Winners win because they want to win. They do whatever it takes to win at life through practice. If you want to stay competitive in the game of life, you need to learn and commit yourself to stay in the game concluded Alonso Ontiveros
