Zig Ziglar Famous Quote Friday

“Anything worth doing was worth doing poorly – until I could learn to do it well.”

Zig Ziglar

zig-ziglar-ss

Such great words from one of the greatest motivational speakers ever. I think I said this before but I will say it again; Zig Ziglar, up until the day he passed away was reading 3 hours a day. That is impressive but that is also how he was able to impress all of us!

There are many things we want to try in life. For some of us there are many things we try and don’t do very well.  There are many of us who will give up and move on. Been there done that, tried it now it time to move on to something new. How many of you have done really poorly with something you truly love doing? Maybe you are terrible at golf but you absolutely love the game. Maybe you just graduated college and you are having trouble in your first career job. You are doing poorly but you have that drive to not give up! Don’t give up, stick it out and try again and again. Try it as many times as you need to until you learn to do it well.

I used to be terrible at grammar; you may be treated to some of those errors in my post today. 🙂 I keep writing though. The more I write the better I get. I don’t have to be full of myself to see through time and over 100 posts later that my writing is improving. I am enjoying writing and more and more people seem to enjoy it as well. With this blog experience I just jumped right in. I know more people are going to respect and get more out of my writing with perfect grammar, but until I reach a point of perfection this will have to do. You know that perfection can never be achieved right? The great thing to be motivated by this is, there is always something to improve on, something you can do better. “Practice makes perfect”, just as we have heard all our lives and perfection is what you make of it. Perfection is not a stopping point, it is a milestone for what it coming up next.

Think about it, what are you doing in your life right now that needs improvement? Are you willing to keep doing it until you see improvements? Are you willing to keep doing it if you do not see improvements right away? This is one of my new all time favorite quotes and I hope it is something you can use in your life as well.

Have a great weekend. Thanks for your support and following. Be sure to give your friends a chance to see this too, please share my blog with them.

This weekend I am going rock climbing with the Boy Scouts. I am not very graceful or skilled with it yet but I am going to do it again and again anyways. I do have plenty of motivation, I love Boy Scouts, I love my troop, and I was never known to quit. A lot of  the boys look up to me and I need to set an example for them to not give up on things they love in their lives.

“When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath, then you will be successful.”
Eric Thomas

Eric Thomas, a former American football player, now a successful author and motivational speaker.

Along the road of achievement there are going to be times when it gets hard, and also you will get lazy. If you don’t let the toughness effect you and you stay motivated you certainly will be tallying success after success.

.

Have you ever held you breath underwater? Have you ever been in a situation were in an instant all you wanted to do was breathe? To live we need to breath.  Right now you can breathe normal but imagine if it was difficult to get breathes of air. You are going to do whatever you can, whatever it takes to get that air so you can stay alive. Apply that attitude to your life, to you goals. Imagine what you can accomplish with that kind of drive to get what you want. An easy start to help you achieve greatness is telling yourself; “I can do anything, I can achieve everything I want.” All of us will be successful in one way or another, but only if we want it bad enough. How are you going to be successful this weekend?
