“ WINNERS DON’T DO DIFFERENT THINGS THEY DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY” “ WINNERS recognize their limitations But focus on their strengths Losers recognize their strengths But focus on their limitations … .Shiv Khera “ WINNing is inspiration to work harder A winner gives hope to ordinary people & inspire them to Move to extra…ordinary” The WINNING EDGE
A demanding customer is very similar to a coach. Not only does he demand the best and expect nothing else, but he also appreciates it when he gets the best.
When you are inspired by some great purpose , some extraordinary project , all your thoughts break their bonds . Your mind transcends limitations , your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world . Dormant forces , faculties and talents become alive , and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be . Patanjali (1 st – 3 rd Century BC)
