Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Mindset of an Optimist

The Mindset of an Optimist

The Mindset of an Optimist

“Being an optimist is essential to achievement . . . .

What one believes to be true in their thinking

will become reality through their efforts.”

Lou Ludwig, Sales and Management Consultant,

                     Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author


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

The Mindset of an optimist


You will . . . . when you believe you can  


What you believe you can achieve . . . . you will achieve.


When you believe in yourself . . . . you open the doors of unlimited possibilities.


When you’re hopeful about your future . . . . you see the world as an optimist.  


When you have faith in yourself . . . . your confident in your actions.


When you believe you’re destined for success . . . . your actions are in harmony with your beliefs.


An optimist lays the foundation . . . .  for their future in their thinking. The thinking of I can and will . . . .  and then will do everything within their power to turn their thinking . . . . into a reality.


Live your life with positive expectations. Just like everyone else you will have your share of bad days . . . . encounter setbacks . . .  and failures on your success journey. But with the mindset of being an optimist you will get up . . . . dust yourself off and get back on track.


An optimist is hopeful about their future . . . . and with the positive self-expectations that they will achieve their desired outcome.


Be the optimist . . . . and have the courage to step outside of your comfort zone . . . . and to move in the direction of achieving your goals with confidence.


With the mindset of an optimist . . . . You will step into a world of unlimited possibilities . . . . and opportunities.

We really only have but two choices--being positive or being negative. Being negative doesn't move the dial forward.

Hi Lou - and optimistic outlook makes a word of difference.  If you believe then you can.

Hi Lou Ludwig This reminds me of the small boy and the truckload of manure. He was digging through there and kept saying "I know there is a pony in there somewhere."
