If Zig Can

It gives you hope, doesn’t it? But it’s not the complete story.

It should say, “If I can do it, so can you, IF you do what I did.”

The C Word

Commitment. Yep, that is the C word I am talking about.

“Most people who fail in their dreams fail not from a lack of ability but from lack of commitment.” Zig Ziglar

What dream do you really want to achieve?

Here is the good news – chances are really good you have the ability to make your dreams come true.

Your career or business?
Your family?
Your relationships?
Your faith?
Your finances?


"Motivation is the spark that lights the fire of knowledge and fuels the engine of accomplishment. It maximizes and maintains MOMENTUM." - Zig Ziglar

I love this!

Motivation Maximizes and Maintains Momentum.

Without momentum, good companies (and people) struggle and don't do as well as they should.

Getting things done

How do you get things done?

When are you most productive?

What things are you getting done?

Here is what it looks like for me.

Smooth, Not Fast

Several years ago I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine, Don Sherman.

At that time, Don was in the FBI and he was on the SWAT team. I was asking him questions about what it was like. I made the comment: "I bet you guys spend a lot of time training to go fast.

If you do what you need to do when you need to do it

"If you do what you need to do when you need to do it, then the day will come when you can do what you want to do when you want to do it." -Zig Ziglar

Last week I had an incredible opportunity to lead a Goal Setting and Achievement Workshop for the members of Lifestyles Unlimited, which provides education and mentoring for real estate investors.
