Motivational cartoon strip - Brilliant words of wisdom
Remember, you’ve got to have goals – here’s some motivational quotes regarding goals…
The future you see is the future you get. Robert G Allen
Fear melts when you take action towards a goal you really want. Robert G Allen
Success depends on getting good at saying no without feeling guilty. You cannot get ahead with your own goals if you are always saying yes to someone else’s projects. You can only get ahead with your desired lifestyle if you are focused on the things that will produce that lifestyle. Jack Canfield
What matters is where you want to go. Focus in the right direction! Donald Trump
The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work. Oprah Winfrey
When you set goals, something inside of you starts saying, “Let’s go, let’s go,” and ceilings start to move up. Zig Ziglar
You need a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more important to have a plan or goal. Zig Ziglar
While searching around for a cartoon to illustrate an article on ‘turning bad situations into good ones’ I came across this cartoon I did in 1999. I started a series called ‘Manic Motivators’. Let me know what you think? Was it a good title for a motivational cartoons feature? Is it something worth resurrecting?
Good coming out of bad!
Good coming out of Bad!
Here’s a piece I came across that inspired a cartoon.(Please excuse me as I have misplaced the site that I got it from – it was a couple of years ago!)
For instance, lets say your chip onto the green wasn’t at all what you had hoped for, and instead you have a very difficult long putt to make for par instead. Rather than rueing the bad chip shot which most people do, you instead project forward to the next shot, and mentally repeat an affirmation such as “perfect putt, perfect putt, perfect putt…” , over, and over, and over again in your mind while your partner is hitting his shot.
So whenever you hit a bad shot or feel a negative pattern developing, interrupt it with a string of positive affirmations, repeated over and over again until the negative thought has been vanquished forever. Ensure that you never allow negative thoughts to take a hold of your thinking on the course again
The second round the next day I made sure that I was focusing my energy in seeing the golf ball go into the hole. And sure enough, the next day I shot 71. I had 27 putts and missed six other ones. The funny thing about all this is that once I focused my energy on getting the ball in the hole it was amazing how my swing fell into place.
I dealt with bad ball striking by focusing my attention on getting the golf ball in the hole, no matter what.
I can do this.
I can achieve my goals.
I am completely in control of my game.
I will create positive energy around me.
