AMERICAN ISSHINRYU SEMINARS – SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10th – PARSIPPANY HILTON

If you think of passion as the flame that burns white hot in the heart of every person, then inspiration is the fuel that keeps that flame alive. What are you doing to continually rekindle the passion in your life? What kind of inspiration are you providing yourself that will keep you pursuing your dream? In Create a Life You Can’t Wait to Live, Zig Ziglar’s motivational thoughts will help ignite the passion, purpose, and peak performance you’ve longed for.

I was fortunate enough to attend a number of seminars that Zig Ziglar presented. Each one focused on necessary ideas to succeed in life and how to become positive influence at everything I wanted to do. I remember he had an old chromed well pump attached to a wooden stand. As he talked about success he would pump the handle showing that if one wanted success work had to be accomplished. Nothing would happen (no water would be produced) if the pump was not primed and if the handle was not moved with energy and enthusiasm. Just like the well pump, if success is desired in life – work must be done with effort and enthusiasm.

People with goals succeed because they know where they are going and do not let outside influences affect their actions. People that write the goal and then visualize the goal being accomplished have a better chance of success than people who just want to succeed. Think what your last accomplishment was. What started the desire to succeed. What steps were necessary for success to be accomplished? Success in not an accident.

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.” Marcus Aurelius

What we plant is what we will harvest. The thoughts we cultivate cause the outcome of our actions. “Our bodies are our gardens to which our wills are our gardeners.” Shakespeare

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN THE DOJO.
