Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Take Charge of Your Circumstances

Take Charge of Your Circumstances


Motivational Power Quote


Take Charge of Your Circumstances

"We can let circumstances rules us,

or we can take charge

and rule our lives from within."

 Earl Nightingale, author of the The Strangest Secret,

 and Lead the Field


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

Take charge of your circumstances  

There will be times that we find ourselves with circumstances that may appear out of our control. Take a moment to step back and analyze the circumstances that you find yourself in.   

The next step becomes critical on what we do about the circumstances that we find our self in. We can look for excuses for why we find ourselves in the circumstances. We could blame our circumstances on someone else or we can be in denial about our circumstances.     

Without looking for solutions we are wasting our time and efforts and looking in the wrong direction.   

Take charge of the circumstances; take the personal reasonability for finding the best possible resolution to the circumstances apply the solution and move on.   

We can't always control the things that happen to us; but we can control what we do about the circumstances that we find ourselves in.  

We either control the situations that we have in our life, or the conditions control us.

Take charge of your circumstances.

Great quote and great advice. We must take charge of our circumstance or they will take charge of us.

Lou, Taking charge eliminates problems that may come about due to denial or complacency. Onward I say!

Great post - too many times, people let their circumstances become the proverbial 800 pound gorilla

Similar to Vince Lombardi's quote... I am sensing a theme here Lou.
