Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Success Has a Price

Success Has a Price


Motivational Power Quote


Success Has a Price

"Failure is the tuition you pay for success."

Walter Brunell, author         

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

Success has a price  

Success is not a free ride to the top. We have to pay for success in advance.  

As we peruse success we will have to pay for that success as we go. We will find that we will pay for success with our commitment to succeed and in our choices.   

There will be times that we will have to change the course of our day to focus and take care of the priorities that are the success builders in our career. We may feel that we were unconvinced, but it's becomes a small price to pay for the benefits that we receive from becoming successful.  

At other time we will pay in advance for our success with the way we use our time in the present. We will find ourselves working a little long and a little harder to gain momentum when we would prefer to be someplace and relaxing.  

As we make progress on our success there will be a price we pay. At times the price may seem to be high, but in reality the price we pay today will well be worth the journey and for what we achieve. 

Success has a price, and that price is paid in advance to the benefits we receive from our successes.

Hi Lou. How are you doing today? I hope GREAT!! Success you are so right, it is not free. The sacrifice for it up front needs to be assessed.

Another great post from you. Takes more than just sitting behind the desk and waiting for the phone to ring for sucess to come.

Hi Lou, Another great quote!  And a reminder that nothing that we have or get in life is free. It comes with lots of hard work and dedication.

Lou, I just read the book Failing Forward and what an eye opening it was.  I suggest everyone read it, absorb it, and learn from it...

Learning that failure is a step-stone has been a lesson that has not come easily for me.

You get what you pay for. Success surely isn't FREE.

Have a great day!

Great quote!  It is so true that the road to success is paved with failure, but the key is to learn from your failures and perservere!

Two ways to go here. Fail and give up or fail and come up with a new plan to solve the problem. Success can only come with the later. Enjoy the day!
