“What you GET by achieving your goals is not near as important as what you BECOME by achieving your goals.” Zig Ziglar
“The foundational stones for a balanced success are Honesty, Character, Integrity, Faith, Love and Loyalty.” Zig Ziglar

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

Zig Ziglar was a giant in the motivational speaking field who inspired millions of devoted fans around the world with his wisdom, wit and generous spirit.  Even if you’d never heard of this inspirational motivational speaker/leader, you’d have come across his quotes on this blog and elsewhere. His hugely popular quotes are found all over the internet and I, like many others, used them for emphasis and to give clarity to a point of view. When I heard Zig had passed away, I was saddened by the loss of an inspiring teacher/speaker, motivator, author, wordsmith, and visionary. As far as motivational speakers go, he was best of the best…

Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.” Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar, a World War II veteran, grew up in Yazoo City, Mississippi, and worked as a salesman for a number of companies before devoting his energies to motivation and performance training work. Even though he started his motivational career in his 40s, he traveled, spoke, taught and published over 30 hugely successful, motivational books in the span of 40 years. I loved his warmth and kind smile and how,  when he spoke, everyone in a room felt he spoke directly to them and their struggles… I will miss that. I have put together some of my favorite Zig quotes and I encourage all to read his books (See listed books below). More below
