Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Behind Every Successful Person is Motivation

Behind Every Successful Person is Motivation


Motivational Power Quote

Behind Every Successful Person is Motivation

“Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.”

Evan Esar 1899 – 1995, American Humorist


As I see it . . . . . . .


Behind every successful person is motivation


The person with good skills and motivation . . . . will super charge their career forward. The person with good skill and little or no motivation will reassemble someone on a marry-go-round . . . . they will be moving forward in circle and when everything is said and done they will end up where they started.


Ambition will get you started . . . . determination with a sense of purpose will keep you going forward.


Out of desperation  . . . . you will find a way to do what has to be done and keep going when your motivated to do it.


Hard work and perspiration . . . . is doing what has to be done when it has to be done without being concerned about the depth of the task.


When you’re inspired you bring your motivation to the surface and fire up the engines of your success journey to propel you in the direction of a successful outcome.


Behind every successful person is motivation . . . . and their motivation becomes the big difference in successfully achieving their goals.

Hello Lou,

I read your blogs everyday to keep my motivation in check. I am one of those people who needs that extra push...

This is a good reminder, that success is rarely just handed to somebody. It requires a lot of hard work.

yes, I have heard it said that if a person has the requisite motivation, it can often compensate for a lack of other skills or attributes; but you can be the most intelligent person in the room and without motivation you will go no where.

Hello Lou,

I agree with you and your wonderful quote by Mr. Esar...I don't believe that Washington agrees though(!)
