I came across this training session today. Most of these things I roll my eyes at, but this one I thought was particularly good. This is a segment of a seminar given by Zig Ziglar, who I’d heard of, but never listened too.
Now, to be honest, his method of presentation is a bit off-putting to me, so if the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, I suggest just closing your eyes and concentrating on what he says.
This is not targeted at authors. I think this can benefit many people in many ways. The last 45 seconds or so, in particular, packs an extra-special punch.
This is about nine minutes long. I suggest taking a minute to listen. People spend big bucks to hear seminars like this, and here you have it for free.
In general, I am a huge optimist. I’m glad I can smile at how wonderful the world is when people around me are hemming and hawing over their rejections and writer’s block. Negativity loves company, but that’s not the company I want to keep. It sucks creative energy.
If I ever start to get negative, I’m coming back to this post to give a listen.
A positive attitude can snowball into positive results.
Give it a try. You may be surprised.
