    Never go to bed a loser.

    Never go to bed a loser. Always get up a winner.

    Isn't 'as' necessary in these sentences?
    (Never go to bed as a loser. Always get up as a winner.)
    Is it wrong if I add 'as'?

    Not necessary. Not wrong to add.

    Re: Never go to bed a loser.

    Is the rule same in this case too? ("As" is not necessary, but it's not wrong to add it.)

    You will come through (as) a winner.

    If someone knows a grammar book or a website which explains this (about the necessity of "as" for a verb + these types of noun), please tell me.
