Not a Fairy Tale By Zig Ziglar

Not a Fairy Tale

Most of us remember the story of the goose that laid the golden eggs.  The owner of the goose discovered a golden egg in the goose’s nest.  Each morning there was another, so instead of patiently waiting for the goose to lay those eggs each day, he foolishly killed the goose, thinking he would find himself a mine of golden eggs.  Of course, there were none.  Most of us as small children thought the story was interesting and was apparently designed to teach us a lesson in patience.  Today, as adults, we consider it foolishness personified to believe in a goose that lays golden eggs and that to kill him we’d get all of them at once, but here’s a story about a man who did exactly that:

Steve Brown tells the story on “Key Life,” his daily radio program.  A young man from Korea told Steve about a movie theater manager in Korea whose theater was showing “The Sound Of Music” to a packed house for every showing.  Because it was a popular movie and many people were coming to see it, he wanted to find a way for more people to see it so he could make more money.  He decided to shorten the movie so he could show it more times, so he took out all of the music.

He took the heart out of the movie and I don’t think I need to tell you what happened to the crowds.   The owner had completely missed the point and had taken out the part of the movie which everybody wanted to hear.  When greed enters the picture, bad things happen, sometimes quickly, but virtually always in the long run.  Those movie-goers wanted to see a good movie with great music.  When they did not get the music they wanted, they stopped giving the theater manager what he wanted – the profit he would have made had he continued to deliver value.  Always deliver value and I’ll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!

Zig Ziglar is known as America’s Motivator.  He authored 33 books and produced numerous training programs.  He will be remembered as a man who lived out his faith daily.

Happy New Year

New year

As we usher in a new year and prepare ourselves for what is to come

It is time to gather all old baggage and feelings of worry, doubt, lack and fear
For after midnight they should not have come with YOU into the New Year
What awaits those of us that are willing to fight, is a year of victory, prosperity and all that is right

2015 can be your best year ever

Will you make it that way? Today is the day to start new Habits… Habits that will change your life…

Will this be that year for you? Why not?
May God bless you 
Happy New Year
