"You are the only person on earth who can use your ability."
"Failure is an event, never a person; an attitude, not an outcome."
"You were born to win, but to be a winner,
you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win."
"Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street."
"If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner."
"Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful."
"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as
what you become by achieving your goals."
"It's not what you've got, it's what you use that makes a difference."
"Where you start is not as important as where you finish."
"Every choice you make has an end result."
"You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself."
"When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you."
"Success is a personal standard - reaching for the highest that is in us - becoming all that we can be."
"For every sale you miss you're too enthusiastic, you will miss a hundred because you're not enthusiastic enough."
"Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don't hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people."
Born: November 6, 1926
A successful American author and motivational speaker.
I first started
listening to Zig Ziglar tapes and reading his books back in the 1980's.
His motto is: "You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want."
His books and speaking engagements have done just that, helped millions of people
We especially like his thought, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily."
Also be inspired by
books by Zig Ziglar
"If you learn from defeat,
you haven't really lost."
