What makes people winners and losers in life? Watch
It's always important to get a good breakfast e.g. Pringles, smarties (for smart people ), copious garlic...
Dress for comfort, not style. Don't attend any social events you deem to be beneath you (exams, interviews, court cases etc.)
It is far more within you than anything you do from without - you can define success for yourself, no one else really can.
Not necessarily self-belief, sometimes belief that fate / karma rewards those who look for positive in every situation, for others faith in God.
"Winners" always believe in victory, they:
- sacrifice to succeed
- become energised
- look for ways to win
- follow the game plan
- help other team members
"Losers" expect defeat, they:
- give as little as possible
- become tired
- look for excuses
- forsake the game plan
- hurt/blame others

Winners are not easily fazed by failure, they are determined and always push on. Failures are easily scared into thinking they cant do this/that and choose safely, winners take more risks imo and are generally confident in their abilities. My 0.02.
There was a beautiful qoute about it I read somewhere once "Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving"
Conversely, from a pure achievement standpoint, avoiding failure and achieving success can amount to the same thing. During my undergrad, I considered it a failure to not get a 1st, and so I worked to avoid that failure. After university, I considered it a failure not to get a job with a law firm, so I worked hard to avoid that. If your thresholds for failure are high then, by objective standards, you will achieve success.
You have attained enlightenment.
You are a winner.
