31 More Gratitude Quotes to Read When Reviewing Your 2024 Leadership Strategy Plan

It’s no secret that Zig Ziglar is one of my favorite sources of leadership influence and inspiration. For those who knew him, I’m sure he inspired you also! I still have my original “See You At The Top!”

When starting my sales and leadership journey, I posted this quote by Zig everywhere I found space:

“When you do the things you need to do when you need to do them, the day will come when you can do the things you want to do when you want to do them.” ~ Zig Ziglar

I’m grateful for Zig’s wisdom. I’m reminded of all the opportunities surrounding me…and to be grateful for them.

How do I show my gratitude? By taking that step forward –

  • Even when it’s uncomfortable.
  • Even when I don’t feel like doing it today.
  • Even when I’m afraid.

Gratitude opens the door to unlimited opportunities.

As we start the New Year, let’s transform our grand ideas into practical action.
