Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Life Lessons Learned

Life Lessons Learned

Life Lessons Learned

“We learn lessons from our past . . . . from both ours

successes . . . . and our mistakes.”

Lou Ludwig Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author



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

Life lessons  learned



We learn lessons from our past . . . . from both our successes . . . . and our mistakes.


The lessons that we learn from our mistakes can offer a greater opportunity for success in the future than what we learn from our successes. Our mistakes create life lessons . . . . that gives us the insight on what to do in the future to create greater success in our life . . . . and what to avoid.


Mistakes are a window into your past . . . . and offers excellent opportunities to learn . . . . and benefit from them in the future.


Experiences become a great teacher . . . . but can also be very expensive lessons.  Your experiences offer an opportunity to look at new challenges in a new light . . . . and then draw on the lessons from your past to make better decisions in the future.


Learning from your mistakes . . . . creates an excellent opportunity to play those lessons forward for greater success.


Life lessons learned . . . . from both your successes . . . . and you’re mistake . . . . allow you to go forward using your life lessons to guide your future actions.

Good morning Lou,  We are the sum of our experiences - good and bad.  Life lessons are invaluable.  You are right - even the bad ones can be good if we learn from them.  Have a great week!

Life is certainly good at teaching us lessons, especially when we aren't wise enough yet to heed the advice of our elders, haha.

Lou Ludwig - I would agree with all that you said and add, whether we we admit it or not, those mistakes are often a reflection of our souls and how we handle future situations.

Hi Lou, those mistakes can be our best teachers. But, we do need to pay attention, don't we?

Hi Lou, Personal experience is such a good teacher. And those mistakes are often the best teachers if one is willing to look at them in a positive light.

All the best.

Lou, I've come to the conclusion that is it ok to make a mistake occasionally as long as I can learn from it. Thank you for your insight.
