Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Purpose of Education

The Purpose of Education

Motivational Power Quote


The Purpose of Education


"The whole purpose of education

is to turn mirrors into windows."

Sydney J. Harris, journalist


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

The purpose of education . . . .  

Is to see the light of opportunity through the window of your education, turning what once may have been uncertainty into a certainty.  

Education helps us to become better and more efficient with the things we do.  

Turn your education into a resource to assist you to convert a prospect into customer and turning that customer into a successful closed transaction. Turn your successful closed transaction into a long term referral based business.  

Let the light of education shire through your window and you will never see the world in the same way.

Education provides an opportunity to take the ((blinders)) off and ackowledge opportunites through 'new' eyes. Thanks Lou!

Education is so important to succeed in any business.  Unfortunately, many do not see the advantages.

Great quote!

Lou, I agree with you - we should always strive to learn more.  Here's a question:  One of my goals is to start working toward my first designation by year's end.  I see you have both the CRS and GRI designations.  If you had to do it all again, which one of those two would you go for first?  Thanks!

That was a new way of seeing education...I've never heard that one before. I'll have to write this down and share it with my students. Thanks!
