5 Sen-bloody-sational Zig Ziglar Quotes

This dude knows his shit!
I was reading “See You At The Top” by Zig Ziglar last night for the thousandth time and I got to thinking just how kick ass this guy really is.
His business cards were round…. His details on one side and on the other had “TUIT” in large letters. Someone says they will do something when they get around to it he hands them his business card – a ROUND TUIT! – No excuses anymore!
So here are a few Zig quotes that have helped me along the way, Hope you can get something out of them too.
  1. If you aim at nothing you will hit it every time.

    Zig Ziglar
    You must have goals. This quote from Zig sums it up perfectly.
  2. There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.

    Zig Ziglar
    Something which I was told many years ago is 95% of the worlds wealth is owned by 5% of the population. Its not due to luck that these people are successful – they work bloody hard – they go that extra mile.
  3. People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.

    Zig Ziglar
    This is so true – I often hear people say they don’t need success books, inspirational audio’s or video’s But the truth is the inspiration lasts only until the first speed bump, then lose interest and forget why they were so pumped up in the first place. Motivational books, audios & video’s keep you on track in the bad times (And there are always lots of bad times) and super pumped in the awesome times.
  4. The most important tool you have in your entire arsenal in INTEGRITY

    Zig Ziglar
    For me, integrity is all where its at. I see so many people that know that they have something shonky but they are there to make a quick buck, rip some people off and go off to their next shady deal. I have to be honest and say I’ve been duped a couple of times by quick talking dodgy people. It made me to be more determined to always be a stand up guy & be honest with everyone
  5. You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.

    Zig Ziglar
    This quote is what I’m all about. I love helping people succeed.
Zig has this way of saying things that just resonate with me. He’s a great story teller but is also right in your face with some of the things he says.
As I said before I love helping people on the path to success. I’ve found an awesome way to do it & I’d love to help you on your journey. Simply click the image below, enter your details & watch the video. Simple as that.

I am yet to meet a NM who doesnt know the Zig Saying that “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” And its So very True, You attract what you give out consciously or subconsciously! Thanks Alex for reminding us of what matters!

    I really enjoy your blogs and get something out of them every time — in addition to your humor! I had heard about Zig Ziglar a few years ago. Just recently I started seeing him online and watched a couple of his videos. Agreed – he was quite a guy. Guess I’m going to pick up his book next. Thanks Alex.
