The biggest lesson was about the company we keep, or the situations we keep ourselves in; we are who we associate ourselves to be. If we have negative thoughts, negative will be surrounding us. Positive thoughts will be a positive aura for us. It is our way of thinking that forms us. His example included the child with CP; this child had 30 diagnoses that he would never do, never walk, never be... but this child was raised with a different mindset and miraculous things became possible. As with a second child to reference, the child was misdiagnosed with CP; that child's life was able to show the complexity of psychology for thoughts and actions.
Zig uses humor in his anecdotes and it carries well with his audience. I found myself recognizing many things that I'd overlooked or taken for granted in the past. I chuckled often with the humorous stories. There is even a section for motivating anyone who needs help with dieting. He broke it down so well, it seems fail-proof.
I recommend this audio (and I mean AUDIO, not so much a book because you cannot feel his energy by reading text) to anyone who struggles with 'where to start' as they journey along the 'wandering' path. I look forward to hearing more of his speeches.
The 3 main takeaways I got from the audio book are:
1) Are you a wondering Generality or Meaningful Specific
It is a choice, more importantly OUR choice for what we choose to do with our life, our time, and our energy.
2) Do we lack Time or lack Purpose?
- We don't need more time, we just need to have a tighter focus.
- Mr. Ziglar uses the simple example of being able to burn newspaper clipping, and create a huge fire if we just stay focused, and stop moving around chasing moving targets.
3) Commit your Goals in Public
- When he wrote his book, and published 25 thousand copies, in the first chapter he told everyone he had a 34" waistline and weighted 165 lbs.
- at the time of writing, he had a 41" waistline and weighted 202 lbs
- In the 10 months he took to publish his book, down to the day and ounce, he weighted 165 lbs, and had a 34" waistline
A Great book to listen to. These are things we do not teach in school that actually is more meaningful and useful to become successful.
