Words to Live By – Lucille Ball on Optimism

Here’s a quote from a lady who was a real role model for women entrepreneurs:

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.

-Lucille Ball

I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, but you can choose to be happy or not, or to give up or not. You have the power in you to just decide you’re not going to let discouraging situations get the better of you.

I’d love to hear your comments on this!

    I too admire Lucille Ball; it is her focus, intellect, perseverance and can-do spirit that pull me in. One of my favorite quotes of hers is “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it.” There’s more quotes from her @ http://everythinglucy.blogspot.com/2007/07/16-lucille-ball-quotes-to-celebrate-her.html

    BTW have you read Lynn Grabhorn’s Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Feelings ? It sounds hokey but I found it interesting and a helpful reminder of positive thinking. I could not get through The Secret, which seems to have similar ideas behind it, but getting through Grabhorn’s book was obtainable because it felt less like I had to join a cult to benefit from its ideas.

      Hi Laurie! Great to hear from you! Sorry I haven’t replied in a few days, I was having tech issues with the site, now all fixed.

      Thanks for the link to more quotes from Lucy – excellent stuff. I haven’t read Lynn Grabhorn’s book. I’ll be sure and check it out.
