“Life is too short to waste it with people who don’t get it.” Whatever “it” is for you, make sure you surround yourself with people who have it.” In most work environments you have people who really get “it” and some who don’t. You may even try to avoid projects that include them. You try to even work around them because it is easier to do it yourself than to take the time to include them.
So what is “it” that they don’t get? Most winners have “it” but losers don’t…
I believe fear of failure is the greatest reason many people never get to enjoy the results of being a winner. They are not willing to change, risk or strive for something better. It is just easier to settle for the place you are in now. after all, it’s comfortable and we are good so why rock the boat.
There are differences between Winners and Losers – Winners get it…

I don’t care to be remembered as the man who scored six touchdowns in a game. I want to be remembered as a winner in life. ~Gale Sayers
