Lou Ludwig Success Tips: You See Things . . . . as You Are

You See Things . . . . as You Are

Motivational Power Quote


You See Things . . . . as You Are

“We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are.”

Anais Nin 1903 - 1977, French born U.S. author


As I see it . . . .


You see things . . . . As you are


Is the person that you see yourself to be . . . . the person that you want to be? You see yourself and things in your life through the eyes of your thoughts.


As you think you become. You see yourself . . . . and the world not as they are . . . . but through your self-prospective of who you are.


Visualize yourself as you want to be see . . . . yourself enjoying the success . . . . and the life that you were meant to have. See yourself living in a world as you want it to be . . . . and when you do you will see things differently.


How you see things comes from within. If you’re not seeing things the way you want them to be . . . . you have ability to change them.


You control the way you think . . . . you make the choices on how you will act. You become the person you are through the way you look at yourself and your life.


Change your thinking to focus on becoming the person that you want to be. By changing the way you think . . . . you change the person you are

. . . .  and the person that you will become.


You see things . . . . as you are . . . . and when you change your thinking you change who you are.

I often hear the term, we are the only ones in the way. The quote you share has the same message, unfortunately very true.

Make it a great weekend!

I do believe that we all have filters based on our own life experiences when we look at situations, that affect us.

Lou, it's a good idea to sometimes look at things from another perspective, to step outside oneself in some way, it's not always an easy thing.  Enjoy your weekend.

Very thought provoking!  Explains why you never receive the same exact story from two different people.  The perception and "filter" through which they view it is unique ...

Pretty heavy thinking for a Saturday!!  I'm featuring so your readers have an entire weekend to digest it ...

Always enjoy reading your inspiring messages... yes, how we think about ourselves are the glasses through which we see the world around us. Thanks!
