Default I guess it could boil down to definitions!

I whole heartedly believe hanging out with winners is essential for winning.

But wealth is the wrong measurement for winning or losing. Try number of excuses people make as a measurement to determine if they are winners or losers.
Hi Ankesh,

That's all great advice!

I guess it does largely boil down to how you define a "winner" and a "loser"...

Someone who tries, fails, learns from their mistakes, gets up and tries again, and does so repeatedly, is not necessarily a "loser" in my book...

I guess I do try to surround myself with these kind of people. Some people may not be a success financially, but may be successful in other ways...

For example, a friend of mine (who passed away last year in his 70s) was not rich - but I wouldn't call him a "loser" by any stretch of the imagination. He had strings of successes as an actor (he had been in a few movies and TV shows), author (he wrote a couple of non-fiction books about Polish cinema and Chinese cinema, which were published by "traditional" publishers), and he also wrote (and directed and starred in) several plays...

When he passed away, he had several unfinished projects (a couple of non-fiction book projects and a documentary project are the ones I know about), but that's the way of people who are busy. Without a doubt to me, he left this world a much richer place than if he hadn't lived...

Thanks Ankesh! I'm grateful for your input!

Best wishes,
