Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Consistency of Character

Consistency of Character

Motivational Power Quote


Consistency of Character   

“Every man has three characters – that which he exhibits,

that which he has, and that which he thinks be has.”

Alphonse Kerr 1808 – 1890, French Critic, Journalist,



As I see it . . . . . . .

Consistency of character


One of the most interesting aspects of character . . . . your true character ALWAYS reveals itself and comes to the surface.


Consistency of character is a critical element for a successful life and career. People don’t like unpleasant surprises or inconsistence in a person’s behavior.


Inconsistence in a person’s character . . . . is a leading factor in divorces . . . . breakdowns in business and personal relationships . . . . a loss of trust  . . . . and creates a gap on what to expect from the person.


Consistency of character . . . . sets the expectation for personal and business relationships . . . . creates a bond of trust . . . .  creates a solid foundation for the relationship.


Your character will be matched to business image . . . . and how you are perceived as a person and a business professional,     


Consistency of character . . . .  is an all the time thing . . . . in your relationships and in your behavior.

Great quote Lou... hopefully those 3 characters are very similar to one another.
