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?
