Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Get You to The Top

Get You to The Top

Get You to The Top

“The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a

healthy inevitable part of the process of getting to the top.”

Dr. Joyce Brother 1927 – 2013, American Psychologist,  

Television Personality, Columnist.


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

Get you to the top


Getting to the top is a process . . . . and not a single act . . . . nor is it an event. Success is a commitment to achieving your goals . . . . and to a consistent focused effort over time to get you there.


The success journey to the top . . . . will take many twists and turns along the way to the top. There will be days of great accomplishments . . . . and days were you experience obstacles and setbacks obstacles.  Build your foundation for your future success from your accomplishments of today.


Getting to the top requires stretching yourself forward . . . . and out of your comfort zone to peruse greater levers of success. In the process you will run into obstacles and experiencing setbacks which is a normal course of events in your journey for success.


The key is to bounce back from the negative conditions . . . . and focus forward with the determination to achieve successful results in the future..


Treat your challenges as learning experience . . . . and the experiences will contribute to your personal growth . . . . and long term success. 


Getting to the top is a choice . . .  Making a choice to work hard to reach the top is a commitment . . . . Taking the steps to make the climb every day takes determination . . . . and  is also a choice. Make the choices to get you to the top.

Nice post and reminder Lou.  I saw a John Stossle piece last week on the benefits of failure.  Used the same stories about Edison, Col Sanders et.al.

Although we know this information, we often forget (fail) to review that information.  The show, and your blog, is a great reminder, when we feel defeated, look for the benefit.  A favorite quote of mine ... "Every adversity is the seed to greater benefit."

Very few people have been a smashing success right out of the box, like Mark Zuckerberg, most of us have a long list of failures before achieving success Lou Ludwig

Success is a journey and along the road there are bumps. But travel the road and the end result will be well worth it.

Great motivation Lou. Getting to the top takes some work but really worth it.

Hi Lou.  I think this is a wonderful quote.  No one always succeeds, so it takes some missteps before one can climb the ladder to success.

Lou,  It takes persistence and making our way through the obstacles, but we can do it.

Getting to the top is one of my goals for this year Lou Ludwig and I partly attribute that to you and your many inspirational and motivating posts.   (The check's in the mail; wink, wink).   It has been my goal for years now to be the top rated mortgage lender in the Rain here in Virginia.   As you say:   Making a choice to work hard to reach the top is a commitment

I hope to reach my goal by the end of this month so keep the good words coming
