The fifteenth law of the The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership is The Law of Victory:
“Leaders Find a Way for the Team to Win”
Have you ever thought about what separates the leaders who achieve victory from those who suffer defeat? What does it take to be a winner? It’s hard to put a finger on the quality that separates a winner from a loser. But victorious leaders share an inability to accept defeat. The alternative to winning seems totally unacceptable to them, so they figure out what must be done to achieve victory, and then they go after it with everything at their disposal.
In their view, leadership is responsible, losing is unacceptable, creativity is essential, quitting is unthinkable, commitment is unquestionable, and victory is inevitable.
Leaders that win often tend not to accept defeat as an option so they find ways to win rather than lose. With that mind-set, leaders embrace the vision and approach the challenges with the resolve to take their people to victory.
Summing-up: Victorious leaders have one thing in common: they share an unwillingness to accept defeat. The alternative to winning is totally unacceptable to them. As a result, they figure out what must be done to achieve victory.
