Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Motivation Comes From Within

Motivation Comes From Within

Motivational Power Quote


Motivation Comes From Within

“Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.”

Stephen R. Covery 1932 – 2012, American Businessman, Author, Motivational Speaker,


As I see it . . . . . . .

Motivation comes from within


A coach can help you to sharpen your skills and can help you to get the most out of your talent. A mentor can offer you advice and be someone that can offer your moral support,


A coach or a mentor will help you to move you the right direction in your career and in your life.


You and you alone becomes the only person that can motivate you to long term success. Reading good business books or books on professional development books or listening to a motivational audio program all are excellent success resources. They can spark your motivation and desire to aspire to achieve greater success. But you have to turn that spark into the flame of motivation.


Seminars and training programs have the capacity to bring a positive influence into your life. It’s the mindset of the participants on how the information is sourced and if it used for positive purposes or forgotten as soon as the participant leaves the program.


External motivation can impact you and your career but long term motivation comes from within.

Good evening, Lou. Gosh! Where have I been? I did not know that Steven Covey died. Nevertheless, he was a very good speaker and motivator...

This is very true.  It's the same as trying to change other people - it's futile.  I can only change myself.
