Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Preparation Makes the Difference

Preparation Makes the Difference


Motivational Power Quote

Preparation Makes the Difference   

"Success depends upon previous preparation

and without such preparation

their is sure to be failure."



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

Preparation makes the difference

Our preparation becomes the difference between entering into the winning circle of life or standing on the sidelines watching other people succeed. Preparation is a major ingredient in succeeding in life or falling into the despair of failure.

A person that's prepared has prepared themselves for their success journey and the contingencies that they encounter in their journey. When a person is prepared they know with certainly what actions they have to take to become successful. They have devolved and sharpened their skills to successful navigate the challenges they face and to turn their obstacles into opportunities   

Preparation is the thin slice that separates the successful person from the person who fails. 

Preparation is the winner edge. That edge stretches us confidently to successfully handle the challenges we encounter and stretch our boundary into the success zone.  

Put your energy into your preparation and condition yourself for success and you will supercharge your success journey.

When your preparation meets opportunity you have positioned yourself to step into the winner's circle of life and reap the rewards the success.

It seems philosophers, coaches, parents and bosses have been saying the same thing for many years yet some still do not listen. Thanks again, Lou. Have a great week!
