Thank You, Zig Ziglar

“You can have everything you want in life, if you just help enough other people get what they want.”

This brilliant quote from Zig Ziglar epitomized the man.   It tells you not to focus on what you want, but to help other people get what they want.  It is the cornerstone of my business philosophy.  If you keep this in mind when you plan your content, your events and your sales, you are coming from a place of service.

Zig Ziglar inspired and motivated me.  His passing at age 86 fills me with sadness, but most of all with gratitude.  He was a powerhouse on the stage, someone every speaker looked up to.  I was privileged to see him speak and own some of his books.

In tribute of Zig Ziglar, here are some of my favorite quotes:

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

“You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”

“If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.”

“Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful.”

Zig Ziglar quote
“Remember that failure is an event, not a person.”

“Where you start is not as important as where you finish.”

“Success is dependent upon the glands – sweat glands.”

“Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.”

Zig’s family has asked that people post messages to the family and how he has impacted their lives on his Facebook page at
