Lou Ludwig Success Tips: The Law of Action and Consequence

The Law of Action and Consequence

The Law of Action and Consequence   

“It’s easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge

the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.”



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

The law of action and consequence


For every action that you take . . . . there is a consequence.


The person that pursues their dreams with passion and determined action . . . . will find that their dreams are within their reach . . . . and they can make them a reality.


The person that waits to see what comes along . . . . will find that their life is passing them by with very little . . . . or no direction.


When you take responsibility for your actions . . . . and your results you take control of your life . . . . your results . . . . and your success.


When you believe that they are not responsible for your actions . . . . or you’re your results you lose your objectivity . . . . and control of your life.   You will blame other people when your results are less than satisfactory . . . . and as a result become destined to live a life of frustration. You will find other people will try to control your life . . . . and the direction that your life takes. 


All of your actions or inactions . . . . have a consequence. Successful people create the habit of choosing the actions that will move them closer to their goals . . . . and contribute to their success.


The law of action and consequence . . . . The actions that you sow will return you. Take the actions that will advance your career . . . . and your actions will put your goals within your reach.

This is one of the hard "truths" that should be taught to all children before they have the belief that their actions don't have consequences. Wise words Lou. Thank you.

This says it all.  Your action or inaction has consequences.  Know it before you do or not do something!

Our actions should be well thought out and planned, as they will either lead to consequence or reward!

Of course Lou Ludwig It is a law of nature: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
