Lou Ludwig Success Tips: It's Up to You to Create the Circumstances You Want

It's Up to You to Create the Circumstances You Want

It's Up to You to Create the Circumstances You Want

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they

are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get

along in this world are the people who get up

and look for the circumstances they want

and if they can’t find them

they make them.”

George Bernard Shaw 1856 - 1050, Irish Playwright,

Co-Founder of the London School of Economics  




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

It's up to you to create the circumstances you want


You can either make your circumstances . . . . or allow others to make them for you.


No one can control your circumstances . . . . without your permission.


Take control of your circumstances . . . . and you take control your life and your results.


When you are not happy with your circumstances . . . . change them.


When you’re not happy with the direction of your life . . . . change the direction.


When you can’t find the circumstances you want . . . . make them.


When you control your circumstances . . . . and you control your life.


It's up to you to create the circumstances you want . . . . and you create the path to living your destiny.

Hi Lou - I always tell people don't make an excuse that begins with under the circumstances.

 So true if you do not like the circumstances take yourself out of them and put yourself in new ones. I know easier said than done sometimes!

Posted by Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert over 1 year ago

So true!  Circumstances are simply that - circumstances.  What comes after that is up to you.

Hi Lou Ludwig 

I saw this post on Carol Williams 2nd Chance Saturday.

What you have said is true AND many times can be a hard pill to swallow. It's all about the choices we make as Free Will beings.
