Are You A Loser Or A Failure?

What’s the difference between being a failure or being a loser? It’s pretty simple. People who fail learn from it and try again.

And Losers quit.

Which are you? Decide now. I’m here to smack you in the face hard. Ready?

  • So the last project you had didn’t work that great? The loser gave up. The failure tried again.

  • You made a mistake at your job or with your spouse and you’re being punished for it? The loser figures there’s nothing she can do. The failure learns from it and fixes it.
  • Look, if you’re going to run your own business and be an entrepreneur, you’re going to have to understand these differences. Being a failure is not the same as being a loser.

    Show me one successful person who didn’t fail 1,000 times before they succeeded big. (Ok, a tiny few somehow manage to get lucky and do this, but you get my point).

    Ok, now get to work. Or are you a loser? You tell me.

    "Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

    "I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

    "I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

      Hey Jim -This reminds me of something ex-Yankee pitcher and bestselling author Jim Bouton said in his keynote at Affiliate Summit a couple years back…“I’m convinced most people don’t fail; they simply stop trying.”But don't push the lazy and uninspired too hard – they make it easier for those of us who keep trying to succeed. ;-)

      Well said. Failure is the swift kick in the pants that, when felt, should move one a bit further along the path to success.

      I want to decide one. my decide here is I don't want to be a loser to lost everything that I have done before. Why need to quit from failure that can make you try and try again from what you fail right now…

      one thing here is never quit to learn from failure…

      I used to think they were similar and would whine to friends that I'm both.
      Apparently, I'm just a failure.
      But that's a good thing–because with failure comes learning and acceptance, and eventually, success.
