“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” — Theodore Roosevelt
One of my greatest mentors in life, both professionally and personally, is Zig Ziglar. This would probably be news to him. I discovered his books while in high school and had the blessing to see him speak in Tampa and then again in Jacksonville, Florida. He has since passed away, but his life’s work continues to inspire me everyday.
The first blog post I ever wrote was in 2007 and I did experience a bit of panic attack prior to pressing publish. Today, hundreds and hundreds of blog posts later, I still feel my heartbeat quicken prior to pressing that magic publish button. The fear of putting your thoughts, opinions, experiences out into the world can be intimidating. It can also be exciting, motivating, and (if you’re lucky enough) create an emotional connection to your reader.
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work” – Colin Powell
