I copied a few quotes from Zig Zigler and his son Tom.
You have never really lived until you’ve done something for someone who can never repay you.

When you do more than you are paid for eventually you'll be paid for more than you do. The universal law say's we sow what we reap and we get what we give. I may not happen today but input will eventually equal output.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Never quit, if you stumble, get back up. What happened yesterday no longer matters.
You have the whole world in front of you. You have a purpose and you have a difference to make…. Get going.

Change requires you to break out of your old comfort and develop new habits.
New habits will give you new results but it all starts with baby steps beginning now.

<p>I was speaking at an event and when I said this quote a lady in the room blurted out "That's just like NASCAR!"  I had no idea what she meant so I asked how this quote was like NASCAR.</p><br /><br />
<p>What she said was profound:  "When your going around the race track at 185 mph your eyes have to look where you want to go.  If you look at the wall, you hit the wall."</p><br /><br />
<p>What a great picture of life!  What are your eyes focused on?
No matter how you feel…get up, dress up, show up and Never Give Up!Dad said this, “Logic will not change an emotion, but action will.” Zig ZiglarMy hope for you today and in 2014 is that you take action on the things you need to take action on even when you don’t feel like it.

<p>It is amazing how simple this concept is, but how hard it is to master.  Dad was the best at this I have ever seen.  One example is how he handled travel delays.  He flew 2 or 3 times a week for years and he encountered them all the time.  Instead of worrying or complaining or getting angry, he just preplanned his response!  In a positive and calm manner he would focus on what he could control.  An extra hour in a airport?  No problem!  Now he had an extra hour to write the next book, make those phone calls, etc.</p><br /><br />
<p>Next time you get "bad news" just do what Dad did.  Say "Fantstic!" and then put in place your back up plan you already had prepared.
Photo: Before I leave this evening night time  on this social media box I would going to give it a great message and quote that I got from Tom Ziglar ,right now I am going to give it a huge shot on this which is really worth reading with two simple statements Give it a try and re consider before you decided something B)
If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

<p>We get thousands of testimonials about Dad and how he impacted people.  It may surprise you to know that the common theme is how when people talked to him one-on-one they really felt like he really listened to them and that they were the only person in the room.  Dad was an amazing speaker, but an even better listener.

Helper-Monkeys Stats of 2012: Annual Adonis49 blog in review

If you care to peruse the annual report in its entirety https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2012/annual-report/

This blog was viewed about 91,000 times in 2012 and (an average of 280 hits per day, and 190,000 hits in total since Sept. 16, 2008).

Apparently, the concert hall at the Barclay’s Center can fit the 19,000 people who came to see Jay-Z perform, and it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I would have preferred a comparison with the stadium of the Univ. of Oklahoma at Norman: It would have a better viewing comparison in my mind, since I have no idea where this Barclay’s Center is located and how it looks from the inside…

In 2012, there were 715 new posts (50 more than in 2011), and growing the total archive of this blog to 3,250 posts.

I have yet to tag the articles that I posted in the first two years: I am slow in catching up with the best techniques to “attract readers.

There were 16 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 3 MB. That’s about a picture per month.

(Mind you that my blog is about words and not pictures, so far)

The busiest day of the year was November 28th with 1,081 views. The most popular post that day was “Help enough people to get what they want…” Zig Ziglar.

I translate what I read in French and Arabic into English, and I appreciate links to well-developed articles.

The USA has the lion share of about 30%, followed by the English-speaking countries such as Canada, England, India… Lebanon is picking up of about a dozen a day (I was surprised of 100 hits two weeks ago)

This month, the USA registered 3,000 hits, India 650, England 550, and Lebanon 300 hits….

The blog is read my almost every recognized State, except a few such as China.

I noticed in the last 2 weeks that a third of my visitors read several of my posts every day.

The dedicated subcribers increased 10 folds this year.

“Help enough people to get what they want…” Zig Ziglar

“Help enough people to get what they want, and you can have everything in life you wantZig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar has published a booklet, spanning 12 weeks, for noting everyday what you accomplished toward reaching 4 goals you have selected: One long-term goal and three of shorter terms.

A goal’s purpose is to 1) direct attention, 2) create effort, 3) affect persistence, and 4) extends task-relevant knowledge and strategies to the problem at hand…

Change comes:

1. in small steps

2. in consistent effort

3. within group support

The entire purpose of this booklet is to feel that you are guided in this journey for success. And basically, the process is that you will change on the way, to become a better person. However, nowhere in the many quotations, there are included anything related to feeling or empathy or valuing emotions.

For example, (and I can’t help it Not to edit sentences my way):

1. The deeper your belief in your goal, the higher your success story can reach

2. Take your eyes off your goal, if you care to look at obstacles (Isn’t a prescription for a pretty lonely path?)

3. Failure is an event, Not a person. (Erect a totem for every failure)

4. Only you can use your potential (With all the support you will need?)

5. You can’t pay (upfront) for success: You’ll have to make payment everyday

6. Only you can stop your goal permanently: Don’t blame it on external causes (What if you become handicapped, can’t you delegate the goal for those you trained as leaders?)

7. We all enjoy 24-hour a day: lack of direction, Not lack of time, is the problem

8. Be, do, and have

9. Dependability is critical: Ability may be overrated

10. Opportunity for success is in the person, Not in the job

11. Quality of life is in the commitment to excellence in whatever we undertake

12. Success is a personal standard: What you set is what you get. (Sweet, better not believe yourself superman)

13. Yearning power is more important than earning power (once you set your goal in motion?)

14. Price of success is much lower than the price of failure

15. The more frequently you express gratitude for what you have, the more you’ll have to express gratiude for

16. The better you manage yourself, the better you can lead others

17. (A meaningful specialist is a purposeful wandering generalist. My distortion)

18. Duty do things well. Love do things beautifully

19. Are you trading what you want most, for what you want now? (The typical story of unhappy life? And who is this lunatic who knows what he want most?)

20. The business is right, as long as your thinking is right (And who is to say what is right in your thinking?)

21. You know you are successful from the bites taken out of you. (Many got bitten bad, and they are nowhere close to success…)

22. Do ordinary task in an extraordinary way: Doing anything with love will assure you an extraordinary future…

23. The job of motivation is to train your habit in order to get where you want to be

24. The Job of Rules is to teach you how to set examples (Supposing that the rules are humanly acceptable, safe, and do not rob you from reflective judgment…?)

25. Action changes emotions: Don’t count on logic

26. You have got to learn to see yourself a winner: If you care to win (That is how dictators see themselves?)

27. Integrity in failure is the most potent persuasive of tools

28. Can’t produce leaders? You are not one

29. Never make a promise you can’t deliver on.

30. Delivering on a promise requires good planning and strong support system

31. Excellence is a mindset

32. Work for Progress, Not Perfection (Let your support system perfect what you have started?)

33. A decision without a deadline is a meaningless discussion

34. Have a visible target: You can’t hit a target you can’t see…

Note: From Seth Godin

My teacher Zig Ziglar died this morning. He was 86.

Thanks for teaching me how to sell and why it mattered.

Thanks for reminding me how much it mattered to care.

Thanks for telling us a 15-minute story about Johnny the Shoe Shine Genius, so compelling that I flew to the airport just to meet him.

Thanks for 72 hours of audiotapes, listened to so many times I wore out the cassettes twice.

Thanks for that one day we spent backstage together in Milwaukee.

Thanks for making goal setting so clear.

Thanks for elevating the art of public speaking, and making it personal, not something to be copied.

Thanks for believing in us, the people you almost never met in person, for supporting us with your voice and your stories and your enthusiasm.

Thanks for teaching so many people, people who will continue to remember you and to teach as well.

You’ll be missed.
