Quote for the Week

“The most influential person you will talk to all day is you.” - Zig Ziglar

Why pick this as the Quote for the Week? Zig Ziglar was always able to boil concepts down into very simple terms. This quote reminds us that we need to maintain both an awareness and control of the voice and conversation that runs through our minds on a constant basis.

This inner voice can build you up or it can wear you down. What you have to remember is that you can and should take control of this conversation. If you start mentally beating yourself up over something you have to stop, realize what you are doing and change the narrative.

Yes you will make mistakes. We all do. I make them every single day. But I do not beat myself up over them. I ask myself what I could have done differently and what will I do differently the next time. You need to do the same. Congratulate yourself for taking ownership of a mistake and looking to learn from it.

Make sure that inner voice is pointing out the actions and decisions you made today and every day that were correct. Steer your inner conversation to your victories, to your accomplishments. The more you do that, the more you victories and accomplishments you will rack up, in both your personal and professional life.
