Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Powerful . . . . Motivation

Powerful . . . . Motivation

Powerful . . . . Motivation

“Losing is a learning experience. It teaches you humility

it teaches you to work harder. It’s also

a powerful motivator.”

Yogi Berra, Baseball Player and Manager


As I see it . . . . . . .

Powerful . . . . motivation


Champions in every profession are made.


They are not born as a champion they . . . . become a champion doing what other won’t do.


Losing can be a powerful motivation . . . .


Professionals in their field of endeavor . . . . all go through a growth process. They may find themselves after they have expended an extended effort to succeed watching . . . . someone else standing in the winner’s circle. As they feel spent and exhausted.


Many of the greatest successes in life come out of the ashes of a failure . . . . a defeat . . . . or in losing. That person or team reaches down into their deepest emotions. They say not again . . . . and work harder . . . . smarter . . . . and are better prepared to success the next time.


They release the powerful motivation of a champion . . . . To reengage and commitment themselves to change the outcome . . . . and to stand in the winner’s circle.


They will rededicate themselves to their career . . . . to achieving the desired outcome.


When things don’t go the way you’re planned . . . . use what happen  as . . . . powerful . . . . motivation to change your future results.

Ha...great quote and I think more coaches and teachers need to be reminded of this one. Today kids aren't allowed to experience losing. They are all given trophies just for being there.

In other words we need to learn from our mistakes and use them to not make the same ones in the future.
