Turn A Maybe . . . . Into A Yes I Can

“Drop maybe . . . . like a bad habit.”

Lou Ludwig Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author



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

Turn a maybe . . . . Into a yes I can


Maybe your business will get better . . . . and maybe it won’t.


Maybe a big sale will happen today . . . . and maybe it won’t.


Maybe you’ll win the lottery . . . . and maybe you won’t.


Maybe gas prices will go down . . . . and maybe it won’t.


There are many maybes in your life . . . . that you can’t control.


You have to get off of maybe isle . . . . and get on the pathway to yes I can make it happen.


There are many things in your life that you can’t control . . . .  do the best you can in those situations. Focus your energy . . . . and your efforts on the things that you can control. That will move you closer to achieving your goals and to greater success in your life.


Drop your maybe . . . .  like a bad habit.


Push away from the maybe . . . . Focus on the possibilities . . . . the opportunities . . . . and as you do maybe isles will become a distant memory.


Turn a maybe . . . . into a yes I can

Hello Lou,  Maybe is not a positive in getting something done.  Be 100% behind something and get it done, no maybe about it.

Maybe is an acknowledgement that i know I can do it but without the committment and passion to accomplish the goal.

Hi Lou

"Yes, I can" is a great philosophy. "Maybe" can be pretty inhibiting in our business, and in our daily lives.

Enjoy your weekend.

when people say "maybe" to me, I ask if it is a "yes" or a "no". Maybe seems so noncommital.....

Lou, this is a powerful thought that has life changing ability.

To live in a "maybe world" is like living in fantasy land. 

I Can is a forward power thought.

Thanks for sharing.
