Thoughts on Motivation

English: Handwritten words: "Motivation &...

People often say that motivation doesn’t last.

Well, neither does bathing

– that’s why we recommend it daily.

By : Zig Ziglar

When mentioning the topic of motivational quotes, I usually get a wide range of responses with most of them landing in the they’re silly, they’re useless, they’re stupid category.  It is my belief that these responses come from the people who either do not use motivational quotes at all or use them once a millennium.

Starting each day with a positive goal or focus, leads to success.  It helps lay the groundwork for a good day.  If you consistently practice a positive action, you can’t help but be successful at what you do.

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”
Zig Ziglar

I start every day with a positive thought of some kind.   It puts a smile on my face and gives me a positive thought to carry through the day.  I usually have a successful day.  And I find it easier to end my day, most of the time, still with a smile.

“You are what you are and you are where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You change what you are and you change where you are by changing what goes into your mind.”
Zig Ziglar


See you soon

It may be that you will not meet again in this life.”

Life is full of unexpected surprises.  Fond memories, loving words and gentle smiles are always better than their opposites.


Godzilla in my past

godzilla“The longer we dwell on our misfortunes,

the greater is their power to harm us.”

By : Voltaire


The music swells in the back ground, people are running about like ants, and a large foot comes down from the sky and stomps out your hopes and dreams.  Godzilla is back, he’s pissed and he’s stomping out your hopes and dreams. …….. Wait a minute, C-U-T!  You’re the director of this movie.  By dwelling on that last failure, you’ve turned that little one inch green lizard into the massive, historical badass, Godzilla.   Refocus!  Change the film…….

fade in…. The music swells in the background, people are milling about like ants.  Out of nowhere, a green lizard crawls into your lap and pauses.  You gaze at it.  You briefly reflect and you let it go on its way and continue your journey.
