This has been a long time motto of mine learned from the man himself many years ago…
There once was a man who didn’t know it couldn’t be done…
…so he went and did it.
The best strategies are passed on by the survivors…
“There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second” - Logan Pearsall Smith
“The most important thing in life is not to capitalize on your gains. Any fool can do that. The really important thing is to profit from your losses. That requires intelligence; and it makes the difference between a man of sense and a fool” - William Bolitho
A friend gave me a Zig book in the lat 70’s. It was life changing as I was a somewhat introverted real estate broker at the time. In the 80s I went to 3 maybe 4 of his live seminars – the last in Columbia, SC hosted by Zig and his brother, Judge. Still use variations of his closes to this day.

“The secret of happiness is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
the fighting men’s poem (Theodore Roosevelt: The Man in the Arena)
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 errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
This is one of my own quotable quotes; “There is nothing more dangerous than giving a little power to a little person”.
