When I started out as a speaker (almost 30 years ago) there were very few famous speakers out there. One of the great forefathers of the speaking industry was Zig Ziglar, I listened to him and some others on vinyl (can you say old).
Today, I remember the day that Zig Ziglar passed away.
Our prayers go to Zigs Family. Our gratitude goes to Zig for being a light of inspiration for hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
Zig’s words of motivation and inspiration put fuel in our tanks when we felt empty, and light in our hearts on dark days.
Some of my favorite quotes from Zig Ziglar include:
“Remember that failure is an event, not a person.”
“You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
“People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.”
“People don’t buy for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons.”
In all likelihood, Zig saved many lives, for in a moment of desperation oftentimes all we need is a different perspective, and Zig Ziglar provided that to so many for more than a half century.
Good-bye Zig Ziglar, thank you for all that you gave!
