New Quote From The Master Salesperson ~ Zig Ziglar

April 12, 2010

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” ~Zig Ziglar

This is a great quote from Zig Ziglar. Mr. Ziglar is a motivational speaker, that helps sales teams  improve sales and efficiency. This quote reminds me of a similar quote by Jim Rohn.

“Set a goal to become a millionaire for what it makes of you to achieve it.”

~Jim Rohn

I like these quotes because they are so true. When you set a goal you have to give up something to pursue that goal. That may be losing weight, making money, etc. Once you follow through you are no longer the person you were when you started. You have to put time in to learn about how to succeed.  At that point, losing more weight or making another million isn’t that hard. When we make choices and change the way we think and act, we grow.

~Aristotle Tells It Like It Is~

April 7, 2010

“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over self.”

~ Aristotle

What a great and true quote this is. There are many individuals that can run with the best of them. Anything you put in their way, other than their own personal desires, don’t stand a chance. But when they are confronted with a personal obstacle, it stops them in their tracks. It takes practice to understand yourself and time to get things right. When you run into an obstacle, think of it as a way to grow as a person. When you take your obstacles head on, the next time they are not as bad. Focus on the problem at hand and try to separate your emotions.

A Great Quote That Puts Small Taking Small Steps In Perspective

April 7, 2010

Constant Dripping hollows out a stone

~ Lucretius

I looked though a lot of great quotes, but they didn’t give me the image that this quote does. I picture a giant boulder that over thousands of years erodes,  from a consistent supply of dripping water off of a hillside. Millions of drops, one by one, eat away at the massive stone. One drop of water can seem so harmless, but millions can hollow the largest of stones.

This is a great quote that puts some of life challenges in perspective for me. Everything, even water hollowing stone, can be done if given enough time. Persistence is what wins the race. Anything that you can imagine is possible, if you break it down in steps and follow through.

This makes me think about a college education. Four years ago I set out on the journey of higher education. I will complete my bachelors degree next month. As I look back, I see how important advising sheets were important to me. They allowed me to see what i needed to do to complete. Small steps every semester led me to where I am today.

Remember how harmless water is, but how powerful it can be through persistence.

A Great Life Quote By Elbert Hubbard.

April 3, 2010

Elbert Hubbard

Don’t take life too seriously. You’ll never get out of it alive.

~Elbert Hubbard

I thought of this quote when Pamela Keener(her blog – http://letsdocollege.wordpress.com) left a comment to a previous post.  – “Don’t think that everything you do has to be your masterpiece. The learning process is fun and worthwhile.”

Pamela I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s important to have a vision, but it is also important to spend time trying other things. Trying other thinks allows an opportunity to find new things that can become part of the overall vision of your life.

A Great Quote By The 26th President Of The United States-Theodore Roosevelt

April 1, 2010

Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell’em, ‘Certainly I can!’Then get busy and find out how to do it.

~Theodore Roosevelt

I think this is a great quote by the 26th President of the U.S.A. I like it because I try to practice this in my life. If I’m asked to do something that I’ve never done before I  say “Yeah I think I can do that” even if I never have. Then I get on a computer and find out what they were talking about. I may in some circumstances where a mistake will cause a mess, tell them that I don’t have experience but would like to take a shot at it. You sometimes hear people say I can’t get a job without experience, and i can’t get experience without a job. Well the truth is you can, you can work for FREE! Get an internship.  But if someone gives you a chance (with pay) go for it and try not to create a bigger mess.

You Can’t Please Everyone. So Just Worry About Pleasing Yourself.

April 1, 2010

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.

~Winston Churchill

I think this a great quote for people that try to please everyone. It’s impossible. If you go through life doing whatever everyone else wants, you may bypass a lot of enemies, but YOU won’t be happy. And that’s the most important part. Standing up for what you believe in and letting people know how you feel, will ensure that your #1 on your list and may encourage others to question their feeling and actions. When you agree with someone, they don’t expand question their feeling and actions. They feel that they are correct and will continue on that path until they are met with opposition.

Thanks For Coming Back….Talk To You Soon.


A Quick Lesson From Albert Einstiein-The Father of Modern Physics

April 1, 2010

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.

-Albert Einstein

I believe that we all limit ourselves because we don’t want to make mistakes. We don’t want people to see us fail and judge us. We limit ourselves to our comfort zone, and when we get close to the unknown we back off.  What I feel the point that Albert Einstein is trying to make is, go out and make mistakes. Experience new things and grow because you cannot grow with trying new thinks in your life. If you only do the things that are easy and comfortable, you will grow very little in your life.

Example: Remember the first time that you had to get up in front of class and give a presentation. After you were done, whether you thought you did well or not, inside you felt that relief and you were one step closer to being comfortable speaking in front of people.

Lost? Let A Great Quote By Jim Rohn Help You Find Your Way!

March 25, 2010

 

“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.”

Jim Rohn

Another great quote that puts things in perspective. If you look at a sailboat in the ocean, it doesn’t go anywhere unless the sail is up and trapping  the wind. It works the same for your life. You have to be prepared for opportunities that the wind brings your way. The flip side is you dont have to let your sail up for the negative stuff. Let that negative wind blow by. You are in control.

Great Quote by Jim Rohn,The world’s leading motivational speaker, philosopher, and entrepreneur.

March 25, 2010

Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.

Jim Rohn

This is a great quote by Jim Rohn. I use this quote to keep myself in check and you can too.

This quote puts an end to “I can’t” ,”I don’t know how”. Now you can say what do i have to do or learn to make this happen?

Next time you come across something that’s difficult, think about how you could be better at it. Looking at things this way will allow to learn and grow in business and in life.
