Good Morning: Start Living Your Dreams

“I recognize that winning is not everything but the effort to win is.”

~Zig Ziglar
When Rosemary sent in this quote, she also included the following Ziglar excerpt.
To utilize the ability you have you must start by getting rid of any loser’s limp you  might have. A typical Loser’s Limp is, “I’m not a born salesman, or a born doctor, lawyer, artist, architect, engineer, etc. (Brook’s side note… or cook, or housekeeper, or _____.)
I would like to emphasize this point. In my travels, I have picked up newspapers from the rural villages of Australia to the bulging metropolises of North America and Europe. I’ve read where many women have given birth to boys and girls, but thus far I have never read where a woman has given birth to a salesman, or a doctor, lawyer, artist, engineer, etc. However I do read where doctors, lawyers, salesmen, etc., die. Since they are not “born” but they do “die” obviously, somewhere between birth and death, by choice and by training they become what they wish to become.

It is so easy to forget that we have the power to choose and the power to be part of the design of our life. First we must decide and dream about what we wish to become, then we must begin our journey, and follow it step-by-step regardless of the obstacles or blocks along the way.
Your Turn:
Where have you been giving up power and choice in your life? What do you want to become? Take a moment today to reflect and decide on what you want to become. Realize you can live the dream… the only person that can ever stop you… is you.
Your affirmation:
I exercise my power and choice to live my dreams.

And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”

And when ending your day ask yourself: “What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
