It’s in . . . . How You Look Things

It’s in . . . . How You Look Things

“A stumbling block to the pessimist is a

stepping stone to the optimist.”

Eleanor Roosevelt, Former First Lady

 

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

It’s in . . . . How you look at things

 

One person will look up . . . . and see the beauty of the sky. Another person looks at the same sky . . . . and can only see only the clouds.

 

An optimist sees the opportunities . . . . in their challenges . . . . A pessimist sees the challenges . . . . in their opportunities. The optimist creates the opportunities . . . . and moves forward with a purpose. The pessimist sees only the challenges . . . . and makes excuses for why things can’t be done.

 

How you look at things . . . . determines what you will see . . . . and how you respond to the things in your life.

 

Be the optimist that sees the beauty in life . . . . See the opportunities . . . . and then pursue the opportunities with determination to make the most out of them.

 

It’s in . . . . How you look at things. Believe in yourself . . . . and your ability. See yourself achieving your goals . . . and living a full life . . . . productive life.

Hi Lou Ludwig I generally don't look to Eleanor Roosevelt for advice, but this one is good.

Perspectives can be so different amongst a group of people and even when something seems one way, others might see it completely different.

Lou - this is good advice.  If the glass is always half full you will be more successful.

Half full or half empty is always the question but the answer is determined by attitude. Thank you Lou Ludwig for constantly trying to improve our attitudes.

Lou, There are always opportunities if the person is willing to be optimistic plus want to venture out of their comfort zone.

Well said, Lou. I'd rather burn out chasing opporunities in life rather than rust out hiding from potential challenges and failure.

Lou Ludwig - goes without saying! It's how we look at things - and things will change. It's not a problem - it's a challenge.

This is so true - some of us tend to see the positives, and others the negatives. And the way we view things does seem to impact the outcomes.
