Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Decide to Act . . . . and Not to React

Decide to Act . . . . and Not to React

Decide to Act . . . . and Not to React

“The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act

and not react.”

George Bernard Shaw 1856 - 1950, Irish Playwright

and Co-Founder of the London School of Economics




As I see it . . . . . . .

Decide to act . . . . not to react


Your future is a blank canvass . . . . that only you can paint.


To paint the canvass with your future you have to have a vision for what you want your future be . . . . and how you want your future painted.  You will have to act on your vision . . . . to make it become what you believe it can be.


There are only two ways that the canvass of your life can be painted. You can take control of your life . . . . Act on determining your future . . . . and to start to paint your canvass as we want to see that future. Or you can decide to live a reactive life . . . . and have someone else paint the canvass of your life for you . . . . as they see your life.


The choice is simple to act . . . . and to control your future . . . . or too be reactive and have someone else decide your life for you.


Create a grand vision for your life . . . . and act on your vision of what you want your life to be.


See your life as a blank canvass . . . . and use your imagination to paint your future. Remember you have the bush . . . . it’s your canvass . . . . and you have the paint. So paint your life . . . . and it can be anything that you want it to be.


Believe in the possibility for your future . . . .  fore what you believe you can make come true.


Make the decision and to decide to act . . . . and not to reaction . . . . and to take control of your destiny.


Decide to act . . . . and not to react as you do you will take control of your future.

You only get one life. Try not to have too many regrets about what your 'wished' you would have done.

Hi Lou - you really need to decide to act rather than waiting for others to do it to you.

Sage advice my friend, it is always better to act upon ideas than sit on the fence and wait to react.

This is so true, Lou. But too many people I know love their lives in the reaction state. It's too bad.

That statement is so appropriate when it comes to raising children. They can really try our patience.

It takes that extra bit of thought to really control yourself and know who you are during those times

So many times that that possibility even exists is enough to motivate so much! Do you know what I mean?
