Zig Ziglar - Performance

One of the better-known quotes is, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are probably right.”  For a long time it’s been accepted that your attitude plays a significant role in your success.  Documented studies, time after time, have proven that attitudes are more important than facts and it’s your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude.  Fortunately, attitude is one of those things which can be substantially influenced and controlled.

Perhaps the most bizarre choice of attitude I have ever heard given in a motivational speech was the one delivered by Coach Bulldog Turner before the final game in the history of the New York Titans.  The year was 1962 and this ill-fated team was playing in the now-defunct American Football League when the coach gave this “motivational talk”: “There won’t be any New York Titans next year, so most of you are playing in your last pro game.  Most of you aren’t good enough to play anywhere else.”

Any of you who have played on a team would agree that hearing words like that before you took the field to do battle would undoubtedly result in a less-than-stellar performance.  When the person who is supposed to inspire you to give your best effort tells you that he knows you’re going to lose and that you’re not good enough to play elsewhere, it is demoralizing.  We’re supposed to be encouraged by those in authority – not discouraged.  Incidentally, after that magnificent send-off to play that final game, the Titans went out and got clobbered 44-10.  I’m surprised it wasn’t worse.

Build positive expectations.  Encourage those around you and I’ll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

PERSONALITY OR CHARACTER? by Zig Ziglar

PERSONALITY OR CHARACTER?

Zig Ziglar - Character

 John Maxwell, one of the top leadership authorities in America, says that most people would rather work on their personality than on their character, and how right he is.  Perhaps that is because the personality development brings more immediate rewards, is less demanding and, in most cases, involves little sacrifice on our part.  Personality development involves learning new conversational skills, style, or developing a speaking ability.

The development of character is more profound, is considerably more difficult, often involves making changes that are at least temporarily uncomfortable and often very demanding.  The changing of habits is always a difficult procedure.  The development of virtues also requires time because it means we must discipline some of our appetites and passions.  Keeping promises and being sensitive to the feelings and convictions of others is not something that most of us do naturally.  We have to work at it.  Character development is the best indication of maturity.

Yes, it is more difficult to develop character than it is personality and yes, it’s true that the rewards are not as immediate.  However, the long-term rewards are infinitely greater.  To value oneself is important, but to be able at the same time to subordinate yourself to higher purposes and principles is the paradoxical essence of highest humanity and it is the foundation for effective leadership.  I believe I’m safe in saying that in today’s world, the need for character and leadership outweighs the need for more people with more personality.  Fortunately, when you develop the character, the personality develops far more easily and more naturally.  Think about it.  Build on character and I’ll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

Reward Yourself By Zig Ziglar

Reward Yourself

Zig Ziglar - Motivation
Motivation

The late William Arthur “Bill” Ward was and is one of my favorite writers.  His insights and ability to put a philosophy of life into a few words were truly remarkable.  Here’s a sample from his book, Reward Yourself.

A man phoned his physician and excitedly exclaimed: “Please come at once, Doctor.  My son has swallowed my fountain pen.”

The doctor replied, “I’ll be right over.  But what are you doing in the meanwhile?”

“Using a pencil,” answered the father.

What we do “in the meanwhile” is of vital importance to our lives – and to the lives of others.  What we do with our leisure time can build our character or destroy it.  It can make our fortune or mar it.

While we wait for a traffic light to change, we can pray for our president, our nation and the world.

While we wait for an elevator we can be still and know that God is, and that He is still in charge of the universe.

While we drive or ride to work, we can affirmatively and joyously meditate on that which is true, pure, lovely, and positive.

While we wash dishes, mow the lawn or perform other tasks that require less than our complete attention, we can sing, whistle or hum the tunes of great songs and hymns that inevitably make life more beautiful for us and for our fellow man.

While we sit in the waiting room of our physician or dentist, we can thank God for dedicated professional people, and we can pray for those patients who might be anxious, fearful, despondent or in pain.

What we do with our golden “in the meanwhile” moments can enrich and inspire, encourage and uplift, bless and brighten our important corner of the world.

Those are more than words on a piece of paper – that’s a philosophy of life.  Adopt it for your own and I’ll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
