This video states if you are an entrepreneur, your best bet is to hire ex-military leaders.

Coming Up: Our next video series addresses the skills of the entrepreneur.

 

What’s it gonna’ take to knock some common sense into you?

 

Momma always enjoyed the Comic Section in the Sunday Paper. She’d say something about Dagwood, or Peanuts and chuckle, then ask me, “Want to see the funny papers?”

On those Sunday afternoons after our fill of fried chicken, the miraculous appearance of full color pages made one section of the paper interesting for a young boy. The funny papers on Sundays, and in the fall, the Sears Catalog with its pages of toys in the toy section were highly anticipated literary volumes in the early 1950’s. Not like today when toddlers haul around volumes of Harry Potter that weigh more than they do. It’s good to see kids so young falling in love with books. Beyond the funny papers, mother kept my small library full of books like Black Beauty, farmers, and cowboys. She also had common sense enough to make me read and study the school books. She said, “Work hard on your education now and you won’t have to work hard when you are grown.”

Common sense was a major course for those of my age group. It made the world safe to explore all day until it got dark.

It may seem sentimental to visit those old days when today there is nothing funny in the newspaper. Today’s newsprint only seems to deliver hate, division, and mismatched ideas. Take for example the Green New Deal environmentalists that clear cut six thousand acres of Virginia forest to build a solar panel farm. That’s about as mismatched as you can get. Consider the logic:

  • Pick a state that offers cloudy gray skies just about all winter for a solar farm. Virginia is my home state, so the impact of light deprivation is known.
  • Cut down a forest half the size of Manhattan robbing the area of life giving oxygen from trees.

There’s nothing wrong with exploring ways to make solar efficient. As it is today, you can’t depend on it. Florida is home now and our previous pool was heated with solar panels. Now our pool is heated by an electric heater. The electric works better. Cloudy skies, even in Florida, can really dampen expectations.

Could common sense point us to the vast thousands of acres of barren desert in the Southwest? No trees to chop and no dastardly cloudy gray skies. Environmentalists are supposed to care for trees and fresh air. Common sense needs to be taught. Momma said many times, “What’s it gonna’ take to knock some sense into you?”

All habits and addictions are illusions.

All habits and addictions are illusions.

Scientific evidence supports the effects of chemicals and hormones that require specific treatments. This is a presentation of the much larger issue of our attitudes toward BAD habits. We give life to habits when we name them EVIL we give them POWER and FORCE

There are times when missing my father weighs heavy. Those small times sitting across from each other in stuffed chairs and listening. The stories of his father working a farm and owning a grocery store that lost more money than it made. His description from a slight smile and echoes in the twinkle of his blue eyes fascinate me today the same way those words captured me nearly seveny years ago.

Youthful years passed and as time made me smarter, there were some days when my self absorbed smart ass would interject some off the wall contemporary passing idea. Comments such as those have become some level of regret and grow large in the memory shouting out the kind gentle happy words.

Today as pages on the February calendar get checked off, there’s Valentine’ Day with cards, candy and kisses to mark happy milestones. One of those chilly February days also marks the day of his last laugh and quiet smile were silenced.

So, as life gets thrown at us shooting arrows of pain and happiness, we may learn that the real educated action is to experience each present moment with a finger on the scale that leans toward the affectionate.

 

 

Here’s a great screen saver.

But, wait, what can a screen saver with the quote  ‘Expand my territory’ do for you?

Exactly what it says, expand my opportunities, my client base, my financial well being. My success.

The quote does not say give me the stuff other people have. True growth is not about taking advantage and gaining at someone else’s loss. Taking something from someone else does nothing toward growth; it is just exchanging something from someone else. Moving something from one pocket to another gets us no where. An old country saying is, “Rob Peter to pay Paul.” That’s a losing plan since the debt to you is still there

Where did the quote, ‘Expand my territory’ originate.

For me, it was on an old I Phone that at one time meant something, but was lost in my memory, so I looked it up. Of all places it came from the Bible; that dusty old volume that people use to excoriate others with blame about the rich and the poor. All those guilt verses about that evil rich man shoving a camel through the eye of a needle crap.

There’s some positive wealth building ideas in those sixty-six books of ancient dialogue that works well today. This quote came from First Chronicles 4:10 concerning a little known guy named Jabez. It states, “Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.”

Then, just as promised, “God granted his request.

Not many people have remembered his name and the quote was easy for me to forget. So, I reloaded on my new phone as a reminder that the Universe is full of potential on the road ahead. There’s a great deal of new untouched territory to explore and win. The good thing is; no one has to lose anything to make it true.

That’s the way the world really is, how do you see the way it can be?

Classic Zig Ziglar

Saying Zig Ziglar was a motivational speaker, is like saying Mt. Everest is a hill.

Joe Nuckols introduces Zig Ziglar at Motivation Monday

Zig Ziglar has influenced millions worldwide and his books, audios, videos, speeches, and ideas will continue to inspire more in the coming decades.

Quotes from Zig Ziglar have been woven into novels, plays, movies, television, and all across social media. He had a special style. The first time I saw him speak was in 1979, and his work inspired my career and the creation of the world’s first all motivation radio station, the Winners News Network. Zig was kind enough to visit one of our Motivation Monday events in South Florida.

This recording was made to explain how he inspired the idea and some of his classic presentation.

Zig Ziglar lived a life of great example as he always lived by his own words. He invited me, “Joe, if you are ever in Dallas on a Sunday drop by my Sunday school class.”

“You teach Sunday school?” I asked.

The thought of my days as a kid on Sunday mornings in a small room with a dozen or people came to mind. So, I asked, “How many people are in your class?”

“Oh,” he answered modestly, “Seven or eight hundred or so depending on the weather.”

That was an invitation I had to accept, so one Sunday at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas, I showed up. That day it was a pleasure to meet his young son, Tom. The son mentioned in the video. He’s a grown man now and is head of the Zig Ziglar Corporation continuing his Dad’s work. As Zig said in the video, young Tom said, “Dad, I always pull for you.”

Enjoy Zig Ziglar’s best
