Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Greatness Comes from The Doing

Greatness Comes from The Doing

Motivational Power Quote


Greatness Comes from The Doing

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”

Joe Sayah


As I see it . . . . . . .

Greatness comes from the doing


People can come into a meeting looking good in their personal appearance . . . . But they will have to product and do what they said they will do, if they want to look good. Otherwise they are exposed for being an empty suit and a poser.


Greatness comes from the doing not in trying to looking good for other people.


People can talk up a storm; they can try to overpower a person in a conversation and say they have all the answers . . . . But unless they can come up with the right answers all that is happing is there is a lot of hot air circulating.


Greatness comes from the doing not in talking up a storm.


Doers talk the talk and walk the walk and get things done. Posers do a lot of taking and a lot of fluffing but when the day is done they get very little done.


Greatness comes from the doing . . . . And having the courage to step out of the box and to start and do what’s important to do and what has to be done.

Greatness begins with the start and perseveres to a good finish.

Hi Lou, you are so right. I know some "suits " like they say "talk is cheap "

You prove yourself by doing and carrying thru on a commitment.

Good morning Lou. I really loved the title and agree with your thinking. Anyone ( well almost anyone) can talk the talk. Nicely stated and the proof is in the doing. Enjoy the day.

The simple truth about anyone who ever was great about anything. We need to teach this to every child we meet.

I like the empty suit analogy, Lou. This is a good one as it's a really true one. I know lots of folks who slouch around thinking they are the greatest, and they don't do much at all.

Good Afternoon Lou,

I have been having trouble starting lately. This might push me a little today!
