An Optimist Sees Through the Fog

An Optimist Sees Through the Fog

“The optimist sees through the fog of challenges and difficulties

to see the opportunities and solutions. An optimist has the

foresight to see the opportunity in their difficulties.”

Lou Ludwig, Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author

 

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

An optimist sees through the fog

 

There is a massive difference between a optimist . . . . and a pessimist.

 

Both the optimist . . . . and the pessimist encounter challenges on their success journey . . . .

 

The optimist will see through the fog of their challenges . . . . and seeks out the solutions to their challenges. In finding the solutions to the challenge the optimist finds the opportunities that was once obscured by the fog of the challenge.

 

On the other hand the pessimist will only see the problem in the challenge . . . . and in looking at problem they miss the solutions to the challenge . . . . and the opportunities.

 

An optimist sees through the fog . . . . and when the fog is lifted . . . . the brightness of opportunities will be there to be found.

Vividly envisioning things from the end really helps on all fronts so that you don't give up when things get hard.

Optimism can be learned just riding a bike can be learned in my opinion and the more you do it,!the easier it becomes usually.

Laura Cerrano has it right, optimism can be learned, and once you master it you will see a good in every failure and just make something even bigger happen.

Good morning Lou. You are right, I am always looking for the opening through the fog. Many times it takes a while, but will get to a clearing.

Good Morning Lou: Indeed, a fog obscures the vision or visibility of what is ahead. The optimist can create an image out of the fog.

Thanks Lou.

 One of the most important aspects of the optimist is that they never give up. They always look for the solution. That's half the battle in life.

Have you ever had some one discount your opinion because you are too optimistic Lou Ludwig? That hurts!

This is like the saying that every cloud has a silver lining. Look for the positive things in the difficult times.

Lou Ludwig  - that's the difference, one complains about problems and other wants to find out the solution of those problems.
