OT: RIP Zig Ziglar
seeit2 posted:
My dad was a salesman. He used to give me cassette tapes of Zig Ziglar to get me motivated. Ziglar taught me how to set goals and reach them. (If you've never heard of him, you are not alone - he was a motivational speaker and corporate rah-rah guy). Anyway, Zig was known for his quotes about life and achievement - here is my favorite:

"Any goal casually set and lightly taken is freely abandoned at the first obstacle."

and one for us parents:

"A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could"

My favorite quote is:

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily....... Zig Ziglar
