Lou Ludwig Success Tips: What Happens is Your Choice.

What Happens is Your Choice.


Motivational Power Quote


What Happens is Your Choice.


"Make it happen,

help it happen

or get out of the way."

Author unknown  


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

What happens is your choice.  

We can be an active participant in what happens to us or we can wait for thing to happen and take what life brings us; it's our choice.  

Stand and go after what you want with passion.   

What you make happen; you will determine by your attitude your thinking and your actions.  

Remain focused on the desired outcome and do what's required to make it happen.   

If you not willing to step up and make it happen, then get out of the way for those who are making it happen.   

What we do to make it happen is our choice.

Great post. I would not close half of my deals if I was not so determined and focused and willing to make it happen.

My Father used to tell me that you reach a point in life when you either need to step up or step aside, you just need to decide which one you want to do.

I really like this quote, it is incredibly powerful.  I think it is a good representation of our market system.
