Success, Significance Anyone?

Why only 5% of the people succeed in life? Simply because they never defined what success looked like to them. Success always follows excellence. Even better than success is significance.

Thank you Zig Ziglar for all your teachings

1) Success comes when opportunity and preparedness meet. The only limit to your success is you.

2) Great opportunity is all around us. The sad part is that most people cannot recognize it.

3) We all control our own future no matter what circumstances come our way.

4) We are the result of our own choices. Decisions compound over time either in the positive or negative direction.

5) Applied knowledge is powerful. Knowing and not doing is not knowing.

6) What we need to succeed already lies within us: our minds, unique talents, abilities, and time. Find your purpose, find what you love to do and develop mastery by doing it over and over.

7) Our rewards in life always catch up to our level of service to others. No one can truly become successful without helping others to succeed.

Our short lives on this earth are sowing times. Live every moment as a seed of eternity!

Be blessed and be a blessing to others
