There are individuals who are raised to be losers. They are told from childhood that they will will fail at anything and everything and therefore, shouldn’t even attempt to try to move out of their comfort zone.  The real loser in this situation is the person making the statements.  They may not want their child to do better than them in life or possibly want them to remain available to support them financially or take care of them.  It sounds ludicrous, but it is true.  There have been hundreds of movies and TV shows about this very topic.  Loretta Lynn, who was a coal miner’s daughter, had a hit song writing about this very subject.  She strove to succeed and is a country music legend.  Just because a person starts out under bad circumstances or poor doesn’t mean that they have to stay that way.  Athletes, celebrities, government programs,  and individual teachers, find the spark in a person and really strive to give  their all to help that individual to become  whomever they want to be in life.  Often people are criticized openly and behind their backs as losers.  It is only one person’s opinion.  Many women who never really wanted to work outside the home but were forced to felt as if they were losers.  Why?  It was their dream to be a stay at home mum rather than be in the workforce.  Yet, due to life’s circumstances, or marrying the wrong person, their options were limited.  There are career women who feel that the stay at home mum is a loser.  They believe that they have failed as women and that a career is the only way to prove themselves as a success as a female.  That is so far from the truth.  Everyone should be allowed to make their choices, life permitting.  Even a stay at home dad should be allowed to have his personal options if it is affordable or feasible.  The U.S. show, “Man with a Plan,” starring Matt Le Blanc, has a stay at home dad.  The wife preferred working and he is happy at home.  No one considers him a loser.  In the Good Gus series, there were working single dads, working married mothers, and stay at home mothers.  I felt children should have the perspective of all types of parents.  The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide.  If you are being criticized as a loser in the way you handle the finances, will or trust of a person who entrusted you, ignore those failures and take a brief respite and read “Misplaced Trust.”  It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd and Tolino.
