Choose Balance Over Quantity By Zig Ziglar

For some strange reason there are millions of us who believe that if a little of something is good for us, a lot would be even better. Sometimes that is true, but frequently it is not.

For example, if a non-swimmer has fallen into water over his head, if you throw him one end of a rope, that’s good. If you throw him both ends of the rope, that’s bad.

In physical fitness, many people believe that if jogging two miles a day is good for you, ten miles would be better. Many people believe that if one particular medication once a day is good for them, two should be twice as good.

Take a Proactive Approach to Your Health by Denis Waitley

Think of your body as a high-powered, finely engineered transportation vehicle, like a space shuttle. Instead of liquid hydrogen, your body is powered by your own intake. The food you eat is the fuel that energizes the vehicle.

What you put in your fuel tank is burned by your high performance activity or – in the case of low-octane, junk food – is deposited in your engine. Think of your mind as the driver who takes control of and steers your body to victory or hits the wall.

On Failing To Succeed By Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar“You’ve got to learn to lose in order to win” sounds like strange advice, but the man who says it has earned over three hundred million dollars. Even in today’s economy, that’s a considerable sum of money. Here’s the story.

In 1958, brothers Frank and Dan Carney started a pizza parlor across from their family’s grocery store. Their goal was to pay for their college educations. Nineteen years later, Frank Carney sold the 3,100-outlet chain called “Pizza Hut” for three hundred million dollars.

Handling Failure By Zig Ziglar

Zig ZiglarCal Ripken is known for breaking Ty Cobb’s “unbreakable” record of playing in 2,130 consecutive professional baseball games, and for signing a five-year contract for more than $30 million in the 1990s. However, during one particular year of that contract, Cal got only about one hit for every four times at bat. Think about it. If you had failed three times out of four in your job, how would you feel about it? What would your self-image or picture of yourself be?

Achieving Success By Expecting Success By Zig Ziglar

Zig ZiglarWhen you plan and prepare carefully, you can legitimately expect to have success in your efforts. When you recognize and develop the winning qualities that you were born with, the winner you were born to be emerges.

When you plan and prepare to make a sale, for example, you can legitimately expect to make a sale. Although not all your expectations are going to come to pass, you give yourself an infinitely better chance of succeeding by taking the proper steps.

Achieving Self-Mastery By Randy Gage

Randy GageHow do you achieve self-mastery? Mastery comes from confidence. Confidence comes from experience. Experience comes from practice. Practice comes from commitment. And commitment comes from vision. Please read that last paragraph again. Then do the arithmetic backward and you have a roadmap to success. And notice that it all starts with vision.

Every thing that manifests in your life is a result of the vision you have for yourself. Everything. One of the common mistakes people make is to say things, like, “But I don’t really have a vision.”contraire … EVERYONE has a vision.

The Three Focuses Of Working Network Marketing by Doug Firebaugh

There are three focuses you can have on working this great business, and each one will bring you success, but only one will truly create momentum. And in this Nugget, I want to share with you the way to ignite a fire of success in your business and drive it to the heights of any success you seek!!!!
The First Focus is:

On Overcoming resistance By Bob Proctor

Bob ProctorI have a piece of literature I love – It was written by the late William Penn Patrick in approximately 1970. Enjoy.

“No person, ideal or institution becomes great until Great Resistance has been encountered. Greatness cannot be achieved until this concept is understood.

Unfortunately, the average person is ignorant of this rule to achievement. Mr. and Miss Average, in their ignorance, are fearful and reluctant to encounter even slight resistance. They don’t want to make waves or be criticized and they incorrectly feel that criticism will hold them back and prevent their happiness from being realized. In truth, the opposite is the case.

Move Out Of Your Comfort Zone By Brian Tracy

Any change, or even an attempt to change anything you are doing, makes you uncomfortable. By attempting to change, you move out of your comfort zone. You feel increasingly uneasy. You experience stress and tension. If the change is too extreme, your physical and mental health can be affected. You will experience sleeplessness, indigestion, or fatigue. You may react with impatience, irritability or anger. You will often feel as if you are on an emotional roller-coaster.

RAISE YOUR INTERNAL STANDARDS

The Ingredients of a Happy Life By Richard Carlson

Richard Carlson - author of Don't Sweat the Small StuffIt wasn’t until about 25 years ago that I realized how simple it really is to be happy. Notice I didn’t say it’s always easy—although it often is that too!

What I have discovered is that virtually anyone, by learning about five simple concepts, can become much happier than ever before. I don’t mean happy “all time,” but most of the time for sure, and even when we lose our way, it’s pretty simple to guide ourselves back in the right direction.

Let me introduce five simple principles very briefly here and then I’ll speak a little bit about their applications in our daily lives.
