Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Positive Thinking Will Turn a Red Light Into Green

Positive Thinking Will Turn a Red Light Into Green

Positive Thinking Will Turn a Red Light Into Green

“Positive thinking won’t let you do anything but it will let

you do everything better than negative thinking will.”

Zig Ziglar, Self- Help Author, Salesman and Motivational Speaker


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


Positive thinking will turn a red light into green


Positive thinking is the key . . . . to opening the doors on the success journey.


Once that door is opened what you see behind that door and in your world will be determined . . . . by your thinking. The actions that you take . . . . and the levels of success that you achieve will be a reflection of your thinking.


You see your world . . . . through the eyes of your thinking. The person that sees the world through positive thinking . . . . sees a world of opportunities and possibilities.


The person that sees their world through the prism of negative thinking . . . . will live in a world that’s a mirror image of their thinking.


The way you think . . . . is the way you view your world.


Positive thinking will turn the red lights into green lights . . . . And put your success journey on a solid footing.

Hello Lou.  Negative thinking is like having an anchor tied to your ass.  Whether your attitude or those around you...same result.  Make it a great weekend.  Mark

Lou- I am all over this!  Negative thinking only brings you and those around you down.

Negativity has never been a catalist to success.   If you can't be positive you will not succeed

I wake up everyday with a smile and I'm looking forward to the what the day might bring. How's that for positive thinking?

Well, Lou, it can be positive thinking or just waiting a few minutes and the light will turn green.  Unless it's by the railroad tracks, then no amount of positive thinking will work until the train passes and if the gates still work!

Positive thinking will always get you to a better place compared to negative thinking. It can be very hard to think that way though.

Have a great weekend!
