We feel most energetic and empowered around some people yet totally exhausted with others. Attitudes that we allow around or inside us may either energize or deplete us.
Think of a friend or a co-worker you have. Under the same difficult condition:
– one is            Staying Upbeat         – staying positive
– the other is    Staying Up … Beat   – feeling defeated … unable to sleep
Which one will be less exhausted?
Who do you think will have the stamina to solve issues more effectively?
Which one would you hire if there was a job opening

Staying Upbeat can be learned

Louise Mission Statement

“ Long ago I promised myself to keep enthusiasm and be ‘a student of life’ for all my life. Our complex world, at times, makes the challenge difficult. Yet, I too get energized creating momentum for others.  

So, let us stay fascinated as students of life. 

Thinking Globally Inviting To Impact Locally creating my Boomerang Effect. What a privilege for me to be among these human beings in faraway lands.

May the Boomerang Effect be with you!
