Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Life is Like a Piano

Life is Like a Piano



Motivational Power Quote


Life is Like a Piano


"Life is like a piano

what you get out of it

depends on how you play it."

Tom Lehere



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

Life is like a piano 

A piano is a beautiful to look at but its full potential will not be realized until someone sits down and plays it. The music is there to be enjoyed by the person who is playing the piano and for those who hears the music.  

Our life is a lot like a piano, we all have music in us, it's not until we release the music of our potential do we start to benefit from that potential.  

Within our potential is what can be and what's possible.  

Hear your music and release your potential.

Yes,you have to decide if you are going to make your own music  or sit back and listen to someone else's.

Great quote, and I also like the response from Janice. Everyone really does hold such potential, but unfortunately many of us never realize it. When I taught school, I used to tell my students that they each had an element of genius... whether it was creativity, intellect, sports ability, etc., but I warned them not to allow it to go undiscovered.

I hope my life turns out better than my aptitude of playing the piano Lou =)
Just being positive,

Almost sounds like something Thoreau would say.

Excellent analogy. Now, I need to practice a few lessons.

Lou, great quote - and Janice I LOVE your response!   I know so many people who lead sad lives (who are truly unhappy) but I watch the things they do and say and know that they could change that if they would just change their attitude.  I hope I always play my "piano" to the fullest extent!  Thanks for the quote :)  ...geri

It is the way you play that Piano that matters. We can fine tune ourselves to become more and better or hit the wrong keys of disaster. It is within us to make the music to a successful life.

Another great post from Lou. We all have music within us; we need to figure out how to let it out.
