Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Be an Expert in Your Field

Be an Expert in Your Field

Be an Expert in Your Field

“Small difference in your performance can lead to

large differences in your results.”

Brian Tracy, Self- Help Author and Motivational Speaker


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Be an expert in your field


You can’t do and be everything for everybody . . . . You can standout in your profession and be an expert in your field. But you can be everything to some people . . . . and those people are in a target market.


You may find it’s far more productive to a big fish in a smaller pond . . . . and standout in that environment.


Focus your efforts on your target market . . . . And in time with diligent effort . . . . and specializing in your target market you will find yourself standing out in that target market.


When you specialize in a target market . . . . you are concentrating your efforts in a specific market with greater impact . . . . and yielding greater results.


Become a master of small details in your target market . . . . and you’ll become a master of your target market . . . . and in control of your destiny.   


Focusing on the small details in your target market becomes the foundation becoming a master of big things. Standing out in your target market will lead . . . . to greater levels of success.


Commit yourself to becoming an expert in the small details . . . . and you will be seen as an expert in your field.

Hey Lou Ludwig You don't need to know everything to be an expert in your field. They say that in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Hey Lou! Love your post and I do agree with it. Hope you had a great turkey day. We did and I kind of wish I could do a "do over".

I am sorry I have not commented on any of your posts in the last few months but it was really busy in my area. Then this month it went to NADA. Hopefully, it will pick up again really soon
