Winner's Way

Each of us has been dealt a hand, each of us a destiny. Nothing can change that. What can be changed however; is the perception of life. That comes with the perspective. 
That makes immense difference to how I live my life.
Every breath I make a choice. And making a choice itself decides the winner’s way or the loser’s way. 
Let's be a winner, all! 

Post Script:
My title here reminds me of one of my favourite poems: "Sea Fever" by John Masefield. What a magnificent verse it is! 
Funnily enough, my Google Image search threw up a sea scape with the correct lines from the poem inscribed across but the poet's name is given as Robert Masefield. It is 'John' not 'Robert'. Matters to me a lot. Someone mixed up Browning with Masefield I guess.
Here, some lines pasted for you, dear reader:

............ I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
