The great, Zig Ziglar, had a way with words. He said, “When I speak, people will occasionally say, ‘Zig, I loved your talk, but for me, motivation doesn’t last!’ I always tell them, ‘Bathing doesn’t either. That’s why I recommend it daily.'”
What a great quote! I’m often amazed that some people think that because I am who I am, I must have a great attitude at all times. “You started Hirschs. You couldn’t possibly have a negative thought!” Well, here’s a confession. One of the main reasons I started motivational speaking is that I saw the need for continuous reinforcement in my life and in others when it comes to attitude, goals, and values.
In a perfect world, we hear something once, record it in our brain, and never need to hear it again. Well, I don’t know where you’re living, but my world is far from perfect. I occasionally have doubts, fears, and disappointments in my life. During those times I need “shots of inspiration” to reinforce, to encourage, and to motivate.
Here’s a secret. My #1 resource for that “quick boost” when I’m feeling down I sit and write motivational quotes. I don’t know about you, but for me, the right quote at the right time can turn the switch from “off” to “on.” And that’s exactly what writing motivational quotes provides for me: an “a-ha” moment when I need it most. As most of you know, I love quotes, and daily I share my all-time favorites.
In fact, if you follow me on Twitter you will receive three or four a day..
The light bulb went off when I discovered that many people love quotes as much as I do. I began to wonder…would they want to put quotes on their walls? With this thought, the “big idea” for putting all my quotes on Twitter was born. Our theme in the beginning was decorate your walls with great ideas. And I’m pleased to say that thousands of customers did just that!
Thirty years have passed since i started reading and writing motivational quotes and these have helped to motivate me in good times and bad.
Here’s how you can make it work for you. Just keep the quotes visible on your computer, your desk at work, your mirror at home and whenever you’re feeling a little down (for whatever reason), just click on and read 10 quotes. It’ll only take a minute, and I’ll guarantee that you’ll feel better.
There is no one I know who doesn’t need an occasional “shot of inspiration.” Every day I send out a motivation on my Facebook page and a few motivational quotes on Twitter as well as some interesting facts on my blog – www.hirschs.co.za or you can just listen in on my radio cloud!.
Here is wishing you all the best for a fabulous day.
