May he rest in peace.I’m going to share some quotes from Zig Ziglar that I absolutely love and some that I gatheredtoday to honor his memory. 1. “Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.” 2. “Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs.” 3. “Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” 4. “When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.” 5. “Among the things you can give and still keep are your word, a smile, and a grateful heart.” 6. “When you throw dirt at people, you’re not doing a thing but losing ground. ” 7. “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great” 8. “The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now” 9. “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could” 10. “Money isn’t everything but it ranks right up there with oxygen.” 11. “You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.” 12. “Make today worth remembering.” 13. “There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.” 14. “You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life.” 15. “You are what you are and you are where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You change what you are and you change where you are by changing what goes into your mind.” 16. “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.” 17. “Some people find fault like there is a reward for it” 18. “Failure is an event not a person” 19. “Outstanding people have one thing in common: an absolute sense of mission” 20. “Look back in forgiveness, forward in hope, down in compassion, and up with gratitude”
21. “You can start where you are with what you’ve got and go to wherever it is you want to go.” 22. “The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little.” 23. “Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. If we do our best, we are a success.” 24. “Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.” 25. “You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” 26. “Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully.” 27. “You cannot consistently perform in a manner which is inconsistent with the way you see yourself.” 28. “It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” 29. “Some of us learn from other people’s mistakes and the rest of us have to be other people.” 30. “Make failure your teacher, not your undertaker.” 31. “The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.” 32. “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” 33. “If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.” 34. “When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.” 35. “Failing is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.” 36. “If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.” 37. “Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there.” 38. “The great majority of people are “wandering generalities” rather than “meaningful specifics”. The fact is that you can’t hit a target that you can’t see. If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. You have to have goals.” 39. “A goal properly set is halfway reached.” 40. “When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you”I’m sending my prayers and condolences to the family and if any of you read this, I send youhealing thoughts and love.My quotes were gathered from …
