Famous People and Me

I met Colin Powell yesterday. And George Ross (one of Trump's top guys), and Zig Ziglar, and Bill Bartmann (you should have heard his story! Amazing).

Yeah, I really did. Believe it or not.

Of course, I didn't actually talk to them (smile), but I did get to listen to them and hear their motivational speeches. I loved it.

I was invited to attend this motivational seminar (and hubby, too, but he couldn't go) with these fantastic speakers, free of charge. Wow. It was a wonderful day.

Let me give you some comments made that impressed me:

  • Powell: Leaders have to have goals, passion, and missions. They have to be able to pass it down.
  • Peter Lowe: (When you're the speaker) Laughter forces you to breathe. Use it for a break through.
  • Zig Ziglar: (we all know what a motivator he is!) Motivation is not permanent. Do it regularly.
  • Archie Griffin: Adversity teaches you whether you're a fighter or not. When you're knocked down, get up!
More later . . .

Trivia Question:
Where did the Horn of Plenty (cornucopia) originate?

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
