What Inspires Me...
The late Zig Ziglar has had a profound impact on me over the course of my life and many of his famous quotes inspire me.
I had the opportunity to hear him speak in person on several occasions, and the one quote that resonates with me the most is this one...
"You can get everything in life you want if you will just
help enough other people get what they want"
It is such a simple concept really... By focusing on others, and helping them get what they want, you end up getting what you want in the end anyway.
Practicing gratitude and helping others inspires me to do what I do, and to keep on doing it. When people are grateful for the work you do, and appreciate your efforts, then it makes it all worthwhile. It's much more than just a paycheck or commission check. Seeing the joy in someones face, or the look in their eyes is what it's really all about for me.
Zig's quote has been part of my email signature for many years, and this message resonates with me and inspires me on a daily basis.
