Remembering Zig Ziglar

Thursday, November 29, 2012

What you say to others will stay with them for a long time. Express positive words to the people you interact with every day.

I honestly believe I have felt your feelings.
I've walked in your shoes.
You have made some mistakes,
and you may not be where you want to be,
but that has nothing to do with your future.
~Zig Ziglar

    Great words from a great man. I attended several of his motivational events over the years and was never disappointed. I learned something every time.

Moving Closer to My Goal!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

We are moving this weekend and so I had to join a new gym yesterday. I went in and signed up and presented my Silver Sneakers card.

After the paperwork was filled out, the Silver Sneakers Representative asked me what I anted to accomplish at the gym. I told her that there was about 268 pounds of me and that everything over 195 was excess and I needed to separate myself from it.

She shook her head and said that 195 was entirely too thin for my height and frame and that I could carry 220 well proportioned pounds easily.

WOW! Twenty-five pounds closer to my goal just for signing up!

Get Started!

Monday, November 26, 2012

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.
