I have mentioned in the past that I don't read books... I do however read the Minot Daily news cover to cover as well as several magazines each month. One such magazine is Singingnews, The Voice of Southern Gospel Music.
This is a very entertaining publication and in a time that printed subscriptions shrink and shrink Singingnews keeps growing and growing in subscribers.
That is easy for me to understand because I find the magazine highly entertaining, especially the many monthly contributions by the biggest stars in Gospel Music today. One such artist is Mark Bishop. In the September issue Mark talks about inspiration from greats like Zig Zigler and Norman Vincent Peale.
Here are some NOT so motivation quips given that were supposed to be motivational.
1) "Listen to your heart. When you hear it stop beating, seek medical attention."
2) "If you give up on your dreams, maybe you'll have time to actually get something done."
3) "You should always give 100%, unless you are donating blood."
You won't find any of these three in Zig or Norman's books.
