Why would anyone want to be a loser?

Why would anyone want to be a loser?
I don’t know about you.
But there is one question I often ask myself.
Why would anyone want to be a loser?
Why would you not want to always try and be a winner in everything you do?
How can two people be doing the same thing?  One of them is giving their all doing whatever it takes to be a winner!
The other person however is just going through the motions and is happy with mediocre.
So why do so many people just go through the motions and expect no more than mediocre when it comes to their jobs, their families or even their appearance?
You know the kind of people that I mean.
We have all worked with someone like that, you know the person who just clocks in every day at work and is just average.  They never put in any overtime or any extra effort to excel themselves.
They are also the first ones who are looking for a pay raise.
Or maybe it is the person who shows up next to you at the gym and really why are they wasting their time they are there just to pass an hour, never exerting themselves to the point that it will make any difference.
So am I the only one that asks this question?
Why is it that anyone would aim for less than being a winner in everything that they do?
Yes it takes a lot of hard work and effort to make it happen.
But the outcome is always worth it in the end.
That feeling of success makes all that hard work, those risks we had to take a distant memory.
That is not a feeling that everyone will achieve in their life.

It is the same when it comes to your financial future.
Here are a few tips on how you can be a winner and achieve financial success in your life;

~ Set clear goals.  Goals give you something to strive towards they give you a foundation to build upon which will help you achieve a secure financial future.
~ Understand the true cost of retirement.  This is something that most people under estimate, but you need to know how much you will need for your retirement and how you will need to be able to maintain that life style.
~ Protect your assets and yourself.  All too often people forget to check they have adequate insurance for their current situation. Wills and trusts these too are all too often overlooked when changes in circumstances occur.
~ Don’t put it off.  Start by trying to pay off any debt that you may have.  It is never too early to start saving.
~ Seek financial advice.  Planning for your financial future can be overwhelming therefore seeking financial advice from a professional can play an important role, giving you some good advice which will give you the level of comfort you need to know you are on the right track to becoming a winner with your financial future.
