Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Raise Your Standards

Raise Your Standards



Motivational Power Quote


Raise Your Standards


"Success will not lower its

standard to us.

We must raise our standard to succeed."

Rev, Randall R. Mc Bridge Jr.


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

Raise your standards.   

Success has a price, the price of high standards.  

Lowering your standards may seem like a shortcut, but in realty; lowering your standard moves you in the opposite direction. You continue to move further away from success and your journey is one of difficulty and frustration.     

A person with low standards is very unlikely of achieving success.  

Keep your standards high to maintain momentum on your success journey.  

Raising your standards will place you on a journey that very few people are willing to take. 

Rise your standards for an unlimited future and to maximize your success.

Amen to that Lou. In our business there are plenty whose standards are on a sliding scale. They only appear successful and only for a short while before reality proves them wrong. Great quote!

We should always be reaching for a higher standard to achieve. If we don't, our competition will pass us right by.

Lou, this is an easy one for me....I have very high standards, sometimes probably too high in others eyes!

Sub standard work will definitely result in sub standard results!  I agree.
