Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Calm Sea Does Not Make a Sailor

The Calm Sea Does Not Make a Sailor

Motivational Power Quote


The Calm Sea Does Not Make a Sailor  

“Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order

to become successful.”

Zig Ziglar 1926 – 2012, Self-Help Author and

Motivational Speaker


As I see it . . . . . . .

The calm Sea does not make a sailor


For many they can sail the calm seas of business . . . .


It’s the true professional . . . . takes control of their business in the seas of adversity and in challenging time that keeps their business on course. They will steer business out of the storm . . . . and into calmer waters of success.


A business environment can shift at any time . . . . and the conditions that created the shift can be out of your control.


But you can control is how you respond to the conditions . . . . The attitude you have in steering your business into calm waters and getting the business headed into the right direction is under your control.


A calm head and controlling your emotions are two big factors, in the direction that you and your business will take. Mentally put yourself into a position to make good choices, to stay in control of the conditions.


The calm sea does not make a sailor . . . . or a successful business professional. Take control of the conditions and you’ll take control of the solutions and the direction you steer your life and business in.

Lou, wouldn't it be wonderful if everything was smooth sailing. Since its not, we learn to deal whatever difficulty and adversity comes our way and solve the problem.

Hello Lou,

Adversity creates character is an old saying...we may not always like it, but we always learn!
