In Memory of Zig Ziglar - Take 2...

(I accidently hit "publish" instead of "save" on this earlier... So here is the complete post!)
"Success means doing the best we can with what we have."

"A goal properly set is halfway reached."

"You cannot tailor-make the situations in life but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations."

"It's not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you."

"When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you."

"Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will."

"There is little you can learn from doing nothing."

"The way you see people is the way you treat them."

"Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes."
"Every choice you make has an end result."

"Every obnoxious act is a cry for help."

"Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude."
"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily."

"If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner."
"Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street."
"It's not what you've got, it's what you use that makes a difference."

"Success is dependent upon the glands - sweat glands."

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 you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost."

"You cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure."

"You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win."


  1. I LOVE this post! I think my favorite quote is:
    Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph."

    I think I need that one tatoo'ed on me somewhere so I can see it at trials!

    I am going to bookmark this post!
