Motivational Power Quote


There’s no Substitute For it . . . .       

“The secret of all great undertaking is

hard work and self-reliance.”

Gustavus F. Swift, founder of the Swift Meat-Packing Company    



As I see it . . . . . . .


There’s no substitute for it . . . .


Some people think that they can get around it while others think it’s not really necessary.


Not only is it necessary it’s imperative to your long term success.   


Far too many people fail because they won’t embrace it and find themselves failing.


What is the secret?


Hard work and being self-sufficient are the little secrets of achieving long term success.


It’s hard to beat a person that’s committed to hard work to reach their goals and to become a leader in their field. When you look at people like Steve Jobs, Tom Cruise, Jim Carrey, Pete Rose, Bruce Springsteen and Tiger Woods they worked their butts off to get them to the top of their professional.


There is no substitute for hard work. Success is not handed to us we earn it through consistent focused efforts on our objectives.


A person to have a successful climb to top of their profession has to be a self-sufficient. To stay a leader in your field you have to continue to work hard and remain a self-sufficient person.


There’s no substitute for it . . . . and you can’t fake it. To achieve long term success you have to be committed yourself to hard work and being a self-sufficient person and staying the course.

You are so right about this Lou. We must be self-motivated when it comes to success, no matter the profession and be extremely diligent!

Good morning Lou,

Exactly what seems to be missing in our society - success requires hard work, nothing is (or should be) handed out on a silver platter.
