Being Positive or Negative is a Choice

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Alliance Properties

Mindset is everything!  I have spent three days this week away from home. I'm sitting in a hotel room missing my bed, spouse and fur babies. 

First of all, I dreaded the two hour drive in heavy morning traffic Monday.  By last night I was so ready to go home. 

Could have let my attitude ruin this sales training camp I'm attending.  Instead,  I chose to have a positive mindset. Embraced my time alone and actually enjoyed this evening.

Lou Ludwig is an awesome motivator, leader and trainer.  I may not comment on all his post, although I do appreciate them. 

Thank you Lou Ludwig for sharing these words!

Being Positive or Negative is a Choice 

“When you wake up every day you have two choices. You

can either be positive or negative; an optimist

or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist.

It’s all a matter of perspective.”

Harvey Mackey Businessman, Author, Syndicated Columnist




As I see it . . . . . . .

Being positive or negative is a choice


It can be said . . . . That things turn out about. . . .  the way we think they will. In other words, how you think will have a big impact on the way things turn out in your life.


An optimist believes that things will turn out the way they want them to be . . . . They will do everything they can do to create the outcome they want to achieve.


On the other hand, the pessimist believes that things are not going to turn out very good. And through negative thinking . . . . and less them the required actions to create successful results. They will think their way to poor results . . . . and their lack of efforts ensure a negative outcome.


Being positive or negative is a choice . . . .  and the choice you make will greatly impact your results.

I try to have a good attitude, but sometimes negative gets in as a reaction.

Good morning Melissa. Lou was a source of inspiration for those lucky enough to have him as an instructor in class or just personally meet him! In addition, his blogs inspired many who never had the opportunity to meet him in person. Enjoy your day!

Everything we do in life is a choice and we can choose to be happy or to be sad!
