Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Time Doesn’t Change Things We Do

Time Doesn’t Change Things We Do


Motivational Power Quote


Time Doesn't Change Things We Do


"They always say time changes things,

but you actually have to

change them yourself."

Andy Warhol


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

Time doesn't change things we do.  

When there are things in our life that we want changed it's up to us to change them, time won't do it. Change doesn't happen by chance, it's a personal choice that we have to make to change the things that we want out of our life. 

Leaving change unattended creates unnecessary baggage and will drain your energy.   

If change is needed in your life; you have to make the change yourself. Remove what's needed to be removed and then move on.

Lou, it reminds me of that saying, "If it is to be, it is up to me."

Lou, We must be willing to move forward when change makes it necessary or we will be left behind...and playing catch up becomes very difficult!

Awesome quote.

Time doesn't change anything.  A lot of things can create change, but time is certainly not one of them.

Lou, The longer you wait, time changes things faster. Making you drain your energy to catch up...

Hi Lou, I think time does change things, but not usually the things that need to be changed - you're right we need to do that for ourselves

Time really locks things into the moment that they happened.  We can change the next moment but not the one that just passed.  Nice.

The only thing that will change things we do is ourselves!  Although sometimes it takes time to realize that!

I've learned that in so many ways.  I actually have to work for things to happen!  Imagine that.

So many are scared of change...I often am too...I get in my comfort zone, but good things too come with change...thanks for the reminder!

Time changes our perspective on things - how we view issues and the world around us. :)

And sometimes(often)  there is an evolution underway. Maybe even a revolution.
