I’m an Optimist

I am an optimist! YES! I’m a card carrying, lifetime member of the Optimist’s club — not the organization, mind you, but of the mindset.

I believe things are good, and I believe things will work out! I don’t necessarily believe that those things will happen by themselves, without intervention.   I believe that “life” sometimes finds it necessary to wake us up, to get our attention, to rattle us out of complacency and make us engage life and take part in our own existence, and our own future.

Of course, when that happens we have a choice. We can choose to continue floating down the river of life and go where the flow takes us — which might be over a waterfall, or the top of a dam — or we can choose to take control and start to steer, and direct our efforts and make course corrections as required.

I am compelled to write this, which means someone needs to hear it today.

  • Are you engaged in your life?  Or are you an innocent stander-by, waiting to see where the flow takes you?
  • What is “life” telling you today? What is it urging you to do? What are you resisting that you know needs to happen because… it’s time?

If you’re not certain… Les Brown asks, “But if you did know, what would your answer be?”  If that still doesn’t help, perhaps an aware life coach can guide you to your answer.  For my free 30-minute MindSet Breakthrough Session CLICK THIS LINK and answer the questions. Once I receive and review your answers, we’ll schedule your free session.  Where could you be, if your mindset wasn’t in your way?

Have an awesome day!




Kelvin Ringold

Born to John and Lora Ringold on October 24, 1953, grew up, went to school, graduated high school and joined the Air Force -- turned 18 in basic training. Did 20 years in the Air Force and retired in 1991. Moved to Syracuse, worked at University Hospital and retired from there at 55. During that 55 years... I learned some lessons, one of which is that LIFE is what we make it. I spend a major portion of my waking hours helping other people figure out the same thing. Life is what we make of it, and... "when you master your mindset, you master your life." That's my mission: living it, and teaching it.
