Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Define the Moment

Define the Moment

  

Motivational Power Quote

 

Define the Moment

 

"When a defining moment comes along,

you can do one of two things.

Define the moment,

or let the moment define you."

Tin Cup (the movie)

   

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Define the moment.  

A defining moment is a moment of choice, do we let the moment define us or do we take control and define the moment.  

When we passively allow the moment define us we accept what that moment brings to us either positive or negative, without any control on our part.  

In taking control of the moment we define ourselves and what that moment represents and how to maximize the moment in our life.   

Define the moment by taking control and you control the outcome.

Hi Lou - I get Motivational and Inspirational messages daily, and many of them do make you think.  This one is especially good - make the most of those moments that come your way or they'll just pass you by.

That is a great quote..the only problem is knowing when a moment is a defining moment...many times, you don't realize it..until it defines.. :) :)

Hi Konnie

Many defining moments pass us by because we are not looking for them.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Good movie and a great quote, Lou! Reminds me of another ... "You either have a vision, or work for someone who does."

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) about 11 years ago

Hi John
