Many people say, "When I get a million dollars, then I'll be happy because I'll have security," but that's not necessarily so. Most people who acquire a million dollars want another and then another. Or they could be like a good friend of mine who made and lost every dime of a million dollars. It didn't bother him a bit. He wasn't excited about it, but he explained to me, "Zig, I still know everything necessary to make another million dollars, and I've learned what to do not to lost it. I'll simply go back to work and earn it again.
Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there.
Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.
Our favorite attitude should be gratitude.
Play the game for more than you can afford to lose . . . only then will you learn the game.
Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.

The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.
The real test in golf and in life is not in keeping out of the rough, but in getting out after you are in.
The young athlete who aspires to greatness, generally speaking, learns a number of things from several different coaches. The first one taught him the fundamentals; the second one instilled discipline in him and taught him more of the techniques that must be mastered to excel.
This is not to imply that we agree on everything because we don?t. Nor does it mean there are no arguments because there are. It does mean there is never any maliciousness or bitterness in our differences. It does mean each is willing to admit a mistake and apologize if he or she is wrong. It means we enjoy each other and love each other enough to put the other one first. We never part company or go to sleep without settling our differences and reaffirming our love. We?re both grateful that God has let us spend enough years together to develop a relationship and discover what real love is all about. Our prayer is that God will permit us to have many more years together before we start our walk though eternity?together.
Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.
When I discipline myself to eat properly, live morally, exercise regularly, grow mentally and spiritually, and not to put drugs or alcohol in my body, I have given myself the freedom to be at my best, perform at my best, and reap all the rewards that go along with it.
When you give directives to a child, especially a teenager, you must consider the nature of your child.
Why we are here is important, but to know where we are going is imperative. It's not what you've got, it's what you use, that makes a difference in how your life turns out.
You are what you are and where you are because of what goes into your mind. You change what you are and you change where you are by changing what goes into your mind.
You can succeed at almost anything for which you have unbridled enthusiasm.
You don't pay the price for success. You enjoy the price for success.
you were born to win, but in order to be the winner you were born to be, you have to plan to win and prepare to win before you can expect to win.
Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
I have always said that everyone is in sales. Maybe you don?t hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales.
If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society He would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
If you do not believe in your product or service enough to offer it to your own family and friends, then you should question the value of what you are selling.
