Not So inspirational quotes...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

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.

Yup, I sure did. They were in one little half page article by Mark Bishop. That's what I like about the magazine Raymond Henson, eXp Realty . There are about 20 Star contributers to the magazine in addition to real Gospel music news.

That quote is my favorite as well Nina Hollander, Broker . There are far to many people who do nothing but dream, collect money from the government and spend it on lotto tickets. They need to quit dreaming and get to work!

Bob "RealMan" Timm hi Bob... sometimes buckling down to work leads to new, more realistic dreams that one can make come true.

It sounds like you still do a fair amount of reading.  I am more of a look at the picture and read the snippet kind of reader, haha.

Although I do not read books Brian England I do spend several hours each day reading. I read current events and information from magazines like AARP and Singingnews.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker and good morning 😃. I hate to admit that I've never given blood but when I consider it I remember how many meds I'm on and figure they could never filter all them out.

Kathy Streib I've ignored that advice twice now and ended up in the emergency room both times. I'm thankful they could get my heart beating again each time.
