“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar (1926-2012)
No one could say it better than the master motivator and mentor Zig Ziglar, best selling author of “See You At The Top” and one of the best thought leaders in the area of human achievement. He passed away last week at the age of 86 after battling pneumonia.
Zig, a World War II veteran who grew up poor in Yazoo City, Mississippi, worked in a succession of sales companies early in life. As his sales skills grew so did his interest in motivational speaking. During speeches, his messages of hope, encouragement and faith showcased his way of life—forming the Ziglar Way.
I never saw him speaking live but I’ve seen many of his lectures in youtube ;-). Absolutely great stuff!! One of my favorite quotes from this amazing human being is… “Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.” What a profound message, ah! It’s so powerful and empowering.
His life and message influenced millions of people around the world and he will certainly be remembered as a true legend in the personal development field and as a person who contributed massively toward the mission of helping people to create and live an extraordinary life :D.
If you don’t know who he is, don’t worry! This video will clearly showcase his uniqueness, charisma and wonderful personality. It’s loaded with some powerful lessons about money, attitude, philosophy, and mindset.
I hope by sharing this short clip to inspire you positively, definitely and absolutely to live the life you have always DREAM about!!
Now, without any further ado, let’s welcome Mr. Ziglar…

“Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you.” Zig Ziglar
