Z Is For Zeal

‘Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal.  The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul’.  Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton

Z is also for zigzag, and if you zigzag it won’t matter how much zeal you have, your success will be much longer coming, and quite possibly not come at all!

Z is also for zest, and whereas zeal means earnestness or fervour, zest means a keen enjoyment or interest.  Or if you are talking about lemons it is an earnestness of flavour!  So whatever you do it would pay to have an equal helping of the two (but not the lemons), and no helping of the zigzagging.

As Norman Vincent Peal said: ‘If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm.  Life does give back in kind’.  He also said: ‘you can if you think you can’.

‘Through zeal, knowledge is gotten, through lack of zeal, knowledge is lost; let a man who knows this double path of gain and loss thus place himself that knowledge may grow’. Buddha.

Enjoy the journey!
