The feeling of ballancing life, love, work, marketing & advertisingThoughts on Life, Love, Marketing & Advertising


I had written a post in the beginning of September titled “Thoughts on Success, Perseverance, Marketing and Advertising”. It was comprised of some food for thought and then a series of quotes on:  Success, Perseverance, Marketing and Advertising.  I have had such an overwhelming response that I thought I might do another.  Once again, I have augmented my favorite quotes with some from quote sites that I really like.  There are links at the end to some of these sites.  Check them out and fill your mind with positive thought from thought leaders throughout the ages… To quote one of the most famous lines from an advertisement ever: “Try it… You’ll Like it” – from an Alka-Seltzer commercial.

This time I have not categorized the quotes but have mixed in various subjects that I feel can make people successful in life, as people and in business.  Please let me know what you think and I’d love to read your favorite quotes.

I am starting with some quotes on love.  Why would a marketing and advertising guy do that?  I believe that if you love life enough it will reveal its secrets.  If you love what you are doing, you will show up each day with joy in your heart, your attitude will be contagious and you will attract and keep quality people and customers.  If you love your customers enough, they will feel it and respond to it. The best ones will be loyal and give you referrals for a job well done…. and those are the customers to build your business on!

“Give it your best and remember that life is what you chose.
Follow Your Dream and do what you love to do”
Jim Messina

“I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.”
Og Mandino
