If you don’t know who Zig Ziglar is, it’s about time you found out. This guy has been helping to make a difference with so many people throughout so many years, it’s amazing. What’s even more amazing is that he continues to make a difference for so many people and he passed away back in November of 2012. Zig has such a huge legacy where his lessons are still being taught today by the people who were working with him.
This thought that Zig brings up, which by the way is totally true, can be one of the biggest life-changers out there for us. All we have to do is follow the statements’ advice. If we change what goes into our mind on a daily basis, we will start seeing different results. Those things that we let into our heads, affect everything we do.
The biggest thing for us is to realize that we have total control of what we let in. Now remember that society and much of the world’s view will try and fight that. The world’s view is always fighting to control people, and make no mistake about it, it’s doing just that. The negativity, fear, ideas of judgment, jealousy, victim thinking, etc.; all go against what is good for us and our lives.
We have to be the ones that find information that will uplift us, give us hope, positive messages, confidence, helping others, working hard at improving, etc.; those are the messages that we need to seek out and bring into our heads. For once ideas come into our heads – we cannot be the same person as we were before the idea got there. That idea may help us to form new habits and help us get into action to either make ourselves better or worse; depending what we let into our heads.
There is another idea that I discussed with my Principles of Leadership students last week in my first presentation to them. That idea was everything we do, every choice we make either takes us closer to what we want in life or it takes us further away. That’s why it’s so important for us to kind of know where we are going to in life. Think about this last thought and compare it to what Zig Ziglar is talking about. Then, let me know if you want to share any thoughts, have a discussion or ask any questions about this. It’s a life-changer. Only if you let it be.
