More then twenty-five years and four million readers show that Born to Win can change lives for the better. This bestselling classic uses the well-known psychological method called transactional analysis (TA) to uncover the roles we unconsciously act out day after day. Its fifty gestalt exercises have helped a generation realize how they communicate with others and think about themselves. If you want to have more control over your life, work more efficiently, and love others happily, Born to Win will help bring out the insight and confidence of a born winner.
Each human being is born as something new, something that never existed before. Each is born with the capacity to win at life. Each person has a unique way of seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and thinking, aware and creative being – aproductive person, a winner.
The words ”winner” and ”loser” have many meanings. When we refer to a person as a winner, we do not mean one who makes someone else lose. A winner is one who responds authentically by being credible, trustworthy, responsive and genuine, both as an individual and as a member of a society. A loser is one who fails to respond authentically.
Few people are one hundred percent winners or one hundred percent losers. It’s a matter of degree. However, once a person is on the roas to being a winner, his or her chances are greater for becoming even more so.
