    based on 66 ratings
     | 6,154 views

    I’m going to state the obvious. It’s more fun to win than it is to lose. Winning puts a smile on our faces. But what does it take to win? Quitters never win and winners never quit. Whiners never win and winners never whine. Turning whiners into winners Series: Here’s hope: Rebuilding ...read more
