【美文欣赏】Born to Win 生而为赢
小编摘要：Each human being can be a significant, thinking, aware and creative being — a productive person, a winner.
Each human being is born as something new,
something that never existed before.
Each is born with the capacity to win at life.
Each person has a unique way of seeing,
hearing, touching, tasting and thinking.
Each has his or her own unique potential capabilities and limitations.
Each can be a significant, thinking,
aware and creative being —
a productive person, a winner.
The word “winner” and “loser” have many meanings.
When we refer to a person as a winner,
we do not mean one who makes someone else lose.
a winner is one who responds authentically by being credible,
trustworthy, responsive, and genuine,
both as an individual and as a member of a society.
Winners do not dedicate their lives to a concept
of what they imagine they should be; rather,
they are themselves
and as such do not use their energy putting on a performance,
maintaining pretence, and manipulating others.
They are aware that there is a difference
between being loving and acting loving,
between being stupid and acting stupid,
between being knowledgeable and acting knowledgeable.
Winners do not need to hide behind a mask.
Winners are not afraid to do their own thinking
and to use their own knowledge.
They can separate facts from opinion
and don’t pretend to have all the answers.
They listen to others, evaluate what they say,
but come to their own conclusions.
Although winners can admire and respect other people,
they are not totally defined,
demolished, bound, or awed by them.
Winners do not play “helpless”,
nor do they play the blaming game.
Instead, they assume responsibility for their own lives.
They do not give others a false authority over them.
Winners are their own bosses and know it.
A winner’s timing is right.
Winners respond appropriately to the situation.
Their responses are related to the message sent
and preserve the significance,
worth, well-being, and dignity of the people involved.
Winners know that for everything
there is a season and for every activity a time.
Although winners can freely enjoy themselves,
they can also postpone enjoyment,
can discipline themselves in the present
to enhance their enjoyment in the future.
Winners are not afraid to go after what they want,
but they do so in appropriate ways.
Winners do not get their security by controlling others.
They do not set themselves up to lose.
A winner cares about the world and its peoples.
A winner is not isolated from the general problems of society,
but is concerned, compassionate,
and committed to improving the quality of life.
Even in the face of national and international adversity,
a winner’s self-image is not one of a powerless individual.
A winner works to make the world a better place.
