Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Some People Will Support You Others Won’t

Some People Will Support You Others Won’t


Motivational Power Quote

Some People Will Support You Others Won't 

"People will exercise great effort and creativity

to make our plan work,

and sometimes expend just as much effort and creativity

to make your plan fail."

Bob Klas, CEO Tapemark  


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

Some people will support you other won't   

You have to find the right person, the one that will support you in achieving your goals and dreams. They will become a special person in your life, one that will help to grow your potential to become the person that we where meant to be. 

Your special person will be there for you on the good days and they will be there to support you through the challenges that you encounter. The important thing is that they are there for you.  

As important as it is to have someone to support you on your success journey it's equally important for you to know who you will have to avoid.   

There are people that you will meet that their number one goal in life will be to distract you and detail your success journey. They get personal satisfaction when they see people fail and they will do everything in their power to push a person into the direction of failure.  

Pick your associations wisely and associate with the people that will booster you and mentor you in the direction of success. 

Some people will support you others won't, find the people that will make a positive differences in your life. Treat them like gold because they are one of your most precious asset and resource to booster you on your success journey.    

Success is a team sport and the people that you surround yourself with will play a major role on the direction that your life takes and the level of success you achieve.

Sad, Lou, that this would be the case. I've always thought that what you are FOR strengthens you and what you are AGAINST, weakens you.

This sounds like a corporate mantra. That being said, even independent contractors, like us, have to be careful.

I have been amazed at what efforts some people go to in order to be a distraction and tear someone down. Like you said, success is a team sport, and without the right people working with you, it is going to be hard to win.

Lou, it is ultimately our choice who we choose to surround ourselves with.  And it can make a world of difference.

Lou, thanks for the article.  It's a tough one sometimes being honest with those who aren't as reinforcin as they could be, it's also a hard thing to do to put everyone up to the measure-stick of supporter or non-supporter because so many are in a space between these two.  I suppose there is a line between those who belong to our personal development matrix and those who just are great friends and slip by the categories like dementors in harry potter.  Cheers.  Jark.
