Lou Ludwig Success Tips: You Can’t Coast Your Way to the Finish Line

You Can’t Coast Your Way to the Finish Line

Motivational Power Quote


You Can’t Coast Your Way to the Finish Line    

“If you’re coasting you’re either losing momentum or

else your headed downhill.”

Jean Welsh, Writer


As I see it . . . . . . .

You can’t coast your way to the finish line


You either keep your foot on the accelerator to maintain your forward momentum. Or you take you foot off the accelerator and being to coast off tract.


You can’t coast your way to the finish line . . . . or remain competitive when your coasting.


Keeping you foot on the accelerator will keep you moving forward . . . . with a purpose to achieve your objectives.


Coasting is hoping that things will turn out the way you want them to with . . . . a with minimal amount of effort.  


Keep your eyes on your objectives . . . . and keep you foot on the accelerator . . . . and remember . . . . you can’t coast your way to the finish line.

Over my lifetime, I've seen far too many people slow down at the finish line, only to be beaten by a more aggressive number two.

Momentum is very important, we got to push forward and not let it go.

Lou - moving forward and keeping your eyes on the prize are very real and very important. Something we all must do if we want to survive.

It is better to win pulling away and just scraping by at the end.

Lots of common sense and truth here. Coasting and gravity both lead in the same direction - down!
