Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Your Glass of Life

Your Glass of Life


Motivational Power Quote

Your Glass of Life 

"Stop asking if the glass is half full or half empty.

Instead ask ‘what's in it?'

How did it get there?

What can I do with it?"

David Kaufman, actor   


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

Your glass of life  

How do you see your glass of life? Do you see that glass as being filled with abundance or do you see it running on empty? 

Also you might want to know, how did all the stuff get into my glass? If the stuff that's in your glass is stuff that you want in your glass then find a way to  go out and get more of it and keep your glass fill.  

If you look at the stuff that's in your glass and you decide you don't want it in the glass any longer, empty it so there room in your glass for more of what your want.  

Remember it's your glass and it's your choice on what you put into your glass and how full your glass becomes.  

A great question to ask your self is how do I take what in my glass and put it to its best use to help me achieve my goals and create a fuller life?    

Your glass of life belongs to you and you have take control what goes into your glass, how full you keep your glass and how you use the stuff that's in your glass.

great post as I sit here with my half full cup of black coffee, thinking before I read your post "why am I drinking this, I don't even like coffee" -

dumped the coffee, new glass filled with the fresh clean clear water I love....learning to fill my glass with what I want and like...

thanks so much for bringing this to the top of my mind, thought provoking to say the least!

Hi Lou, This is a wonderful spin for me, a glass half-full person.  I'm going to have to take a serious look at what's in there, maybe I could dump a few things out to make room for more.

A great  analogy. It's not half-full or half-empty that counts, it's the quality of the content. If it's bad, empty it and if it's goood, get some more. Great post!!!

Hi Lou ~ I also like the new take on the glass half full or half empty idea. Like Mary I'm a glass half full kind of person, but I think I may need to take another look at what's in there too. Thanks for a thought provoking post.
