Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Against The Wind

Against The Wind


Motivational Power Quote


Against The Wind

"A certain amount o opposition

is a great help to a man,

kites rise against, not with, the wind."

John Neal, art/literary critic  


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

Against the wind   

The winds of our life have the power to put the air under our wings and lift us to success, went we have faith in ourselves. 

The person that withstands the winds that come their way is a person that has the determination to stand against the wind and succeed.   

True success is not accomplished with the winds at our back, but it's in successfully navigating the turbulence of life that we encounter.  

Dare to stand tall against the wind and the wind with lift you in the direction of your goals.

Cool. I was thinking about it. It may be unpleasant at times, but standing against the wind is how to become better and stronger

Redwoods stand tall to the wind whereas willow tress bend. Yet, both trees grow into natural wonders. I guess there may be a time to go against the wind and another to move with it. Thanks for the quote.

Hello Lou -

Kites indeed rise against the wind but you need someone holding on to the kite string. Knowing when to pull up and when to let out string.  Otherwise you end up like Charlie Brown. Standing there saying "rats".

Enjoy the day ~ Mark

Kites rise against the wind.  I have experienced it quite a bit.  I need to rise against it.  Thanks.

Lou, Pilots talk a lot about an airplanes "attitude".  Wind does create lift.
