“A near win shifts our view of the landscape. It can turn future goals, which we tend to envision at a distance, into more proximate events. We consider temporal distance as we do spatial distance. (Visualize a great day tomorrow and we see it with granular, practical clarity. But picture what a great day in the future might be like, not tomorrow but fifty years from now, and the image will be hazier.)” ~ Sarah Lewis, The Rise
“In our own lives, having a mind-set of expecting to win increases our odds of winning. It helps us get better results. And better results help us increase our credibility and self-confidence, which leads to more positive self-expectancy, and more winning – and the upward cycle continues. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.” ~ Stephen M. R. Covey, The Speed of Trust
“Wanting to win isn’t enough. You have to go through a process to improve. That takes patience, perseverance, and intentionality.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
…And how to harness one of the greatest powers on earth… Heart power.

“Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there.” ~ Vince Lombardi
“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while…you do them right all the time.” ~ Vince Lombardi
“People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.” ~ Vince Lombardi
“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“For me, winning isn’t something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.” ~ Emmitt Smith
“Just because you’re winning a game doesn’t mean it’s a good game.” ~ Seth Godin, The Icarus Deception
“Failure inspires winners. And failure defeats losers. It is the biggest secret of winners. It’s the secret that loser do not know. The greatest secret of winners is that failure inspires winning; thus, they’re not afraid of losing.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad
