Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Protect Your Character

Protect Your Character



Motivational Power Quote


Protect Your Character


"Character is much easier

kept than recovered."

Thomas Paine, Founding Father


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

Protect your character.   

People will judge us by our character; protect it through your actions.  

If one's character is lost it becomes very difficult to be recovered and in most situations it's never recovered.   

It becomes much easier to protect and maintain one's character, through our actions then trying to recover it.   

Be a person above reproach; be seen as a person of character.

Lou, I'm with you! In this biz of real estate, there are many opportunities to make choices that will effect our integrity and character.  I am a firm believer in "Our reputation preceeds us."

You bet Lou...we need to remember who we are and what we represent.

This should be taught in real estate schools.

Most often, our actions speak louder than words.  Let our actions speak wisely, honestly, and compassionately.

Love that one Lou.  My motto is to live in such a way that I would not be afraid to sell my parrot to the town gossip...

Character is SO important.  When that begins to crumble, the whole world sees it.
