The question is….. How many people want to be a winner in life?

Everyone want to be a winner, everyone wish to be a winner, everyone try to be a winner… but only few are ready to take the effort beyond limitation line to be a winner i.e the winning edge.

The Winning Edge is the extra effort,mile will add to our life. Everyone want to be normal about life not knowing an extra effort will add to our life make the different. I remember a story of one of the greatest basketballer ever to emerge in the world MICHAEL JORDAN, the name ring bell yes in his college days. He was told by one of the best coach of basketball then that basketball was not in him and he should go an do something else with is life.. that year he was not selected among the team but he made up is mind to add extra effort to improve is talent. Do you what he did? He gave himself a task beyond limitation line i.e each day he must at least throw five hundred ball into the basketball net. Hmm! What a task to do? Do you know how many ball he has to throw in a day to reach that mark. We all knew the end result, he was eventually became one of the greatest basketballer of all times.

In order to get the winning edge, we need to strive for EXCELLENCE, NOT PERFECTION. Striving for perfection is overly anxious while striving for excellence is a progress because there is nothing that can not be done better or improved. All that we need is the extra effort, Michael Jordan in the basketball court won more points because of it.

Do you think he is five or ten times better than the other basketballer? Of course not. He may only be little by is height, by is jump,or by is accurate in aiming the net but the rewards are five or ten times greater than others. Successful people are not ten times smarter than the people who fail. They are fractionally better because of the extra effort which brought the rewards that are ten time bigger.

All you need is to add extra effort to your life, if you want the reward which is ten times bigger. The mentality must be THE MOST ORDINARY THING CAN BE MADE EXTRA-ORDINARY that is the winning edge in life.
