Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Enthusiasm Makes All the Difference

Enthusiasm Makes All the Difference



Motivational Power Quote


Enthusiasm Makes All the Difference


"Nothing great was ever accomplished

without enthusiasm."

Ralph Waldo Emerson, poet   



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

Enthusiasm makes all the difference   

Enthusiasm is the little spark that gets our engines started and then keeps it running at a high level on our success journey.  

Our enthusiasm keeps us excited about our possibilities and will energize our activities.  

Enthusiasm may start as little spark but in time will turn into the fire in our heart that will make a big difference that will put us over the top.

So true! 

Emerson is one of my favorites...


What is success? To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; That is to have succeeded. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

So true. More energy comes from being physically, mentally fit and having balance in your life. Your job should be a passionate sport, not feel like work or you are not in your right place under the sun at that moment in time. Embrace changes no matter how hard you want to retreat to areas where bridges were burned for good reasons.

Very true...it always starts with ourselves, and our proactive attitudes.    Like the quote!

Attitude is everything.  I especially like Andrew's view that our job should be a "passionate sport".  Nothing is better than enjoying what you do and that attitude will certainly contribute to your success with little effort. ~ Doug

People can sense that enthusiasm, Lou. (or lack of it)  Great choice of words for today.

I have used this quote before to describe my outlook on life. I believe it to be motivating Lou!

I use plenty of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL.  It helps to be greeted by an enthusiastic black lab every morning, enthusiastic sheep and goats, and enthusiastic kicking young heifer!  They all are enthusiastic about getting what I have to give them!

Woohoo! You MUST be excited AND enthusiastic to be in this business, otherwise why do it! Thanks for the quote Lou! Happy Sunday!

The part I love is how contagious enthusiasm can be.  I love it when my enthusiasm for a home is passed on to the owners and they get all excited about making the transformation.

Ten years later and still a great post. Indeed, our enthusiasm can propel us forward.
