Photos: Zig Ziglar's 12 most inspirational quotes

Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking tartar sauce with you.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(Hilarious!  A little misguided, as whales are not fish, but comedians rely on certain words for laughs.  They always call chimpanzees monkeys, because the word monkey is a funnier word . . . according to some.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Failure is an event, not a person.  Yesterday ended last night.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(I haven’t always been all that kind to Zig’s quotations, as I’m not a big fan of “motivational speakers”.  But, today’s quote is so full of hope and promise.  Just because you failed to achieve something does not make you a “failure”.  It just means you were unsuccessful in that attempt.  Today is another day.  And, if it doesn’t work out today there is always tomorrow.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Outstanding people have one thing in common:  an absolute sense of mission.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(Motivational quotes always leave me a little cold.  Maybe I just think I’m too smart for the power of suggestion?  But, I’m not a pessimist.  Definitely a bit of a contrarian though.  It’s not that I disagree with what he says.  I just don’t care for the attaboy attitude.  But, ol’ Zig seemed to have a sense of humor, and genuineness,  about him.  And, that works for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Don’t be distracted by criticism.  Remember, the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(Unfortunately, too many of these great life’s lessons quotes are read way too late in life!  Maybe, we should be pushing for positive quotations classes for our children.  Impressionable minds could benefit from such, to prepare for, and counter, the negativity they will surely encounter later on in life.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”   —   Zig Ziglar

Spend time with those you love. One of these days you will say either, ‘I wish I had’ or ‘I’m glad I did.’ (Photo credit: symphony of love)

(Hopefully, it’s something positive.  But, you can’t always count on that.  So, you can also take this as a cautionary tale.  Be careful what you wish for.  And, be cognizant of what you are becoming.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PSThe spoilers might be late, and look different for the next few days, as I won’t be at my trusty desk top computer.  Your patience is appreciated. – – –   YUR

Expect the best.  Prepare for the worst.  Capitalize on what comes.”   —   Zig Ziglar

(Sounds like the best all-purpose advice you could give anyone.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You can have everything in life that you want if you just help enough other people get what they want.”   —   Zig Ziglar
