Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Your Choices Make the Difference

Your Choices Make the Difference

Your Choices Make the Difference

“Life is 10 percent what happens to me,

and 90 percent how I react to it.”

John C. Maxwell, American Author, Speaker,

Leadership Expert, Pastor


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


Your choices make the difference


Stuff happens . . . . Some will be good things that happen that have the potential . . . . to have a positive impact on your life and career. While other things that happen to you have the potential to create greatness . . . .  when there acted on. They can create a breakthrough in your life . . . . and accelerate you forward to achieve your goals.


And there are some things that happen that you would like to forget about . . . . but never the less stuff happens to you.


The key becomes . . . . how do you respond to what happens to you?


Your choices make the difference. You can take a bad situation . . . . and make the right choices to change the direction of a bad situation. Or you can make a bad choice in a great situation . . . . and lose the opportunity.


Life is a series of choices . . . . you can’t always control what happens to you . . . . But you can control what you do as a result of what happens. Your choices makes all the difference.


Life is a series of choices . . . . and in those choices you create your future.


When it comes right down to it  . . . . stuff happens . . . . Your choices make the difference . . . . and in those choices you make your life.

Lou Ludwig I'm sure there is a trade-off between what happens to us and how we react to it, but I doubt that it is 90/10. I think it ia more even than that, maybe 50/50.

This article is SOO Right Lou Ludwig .  Children should be taught this as a lesson in school.  Looking back, there are a LOT of life choices I could have done better.

I would add, it's the choices we make that determines the outcome and/or the consequences.

Even though our reaction to an event can be positive it still doesn't guarantee the situation will go our way. However, if we don't allow that negativity to find a permanent place within our minds we'll be better prepared for the next circumstance.

Lou, our choices in certain situations can make or break, and best if we really ponder before moving forward quickly.

Our choices are what drives us to succeed or to fail.  It is our decision.

The choices in our life put us on a path to either something great or to just being in the world with no purpose.
