Do you keep a book with success quotes next to you? I do, and among my favorite are Zig Ziglar quotes.
I was fortunate enough to see and hear Zig speak at a LIVE event in Auburn Hills, Michigan in the early 2000’s
Even though he was getting up in age, he made the stadium with about 20,000 people go wild. The man knew how to inspire people, and his legacy will continue to impact millions of people around the world.
I used to buy little booklets with Zig’s quotes, and send them as holiday gifts to my clients.
Here are my favorites.

I picked up my first Zig Ziglar book ‘See You At The Top’, when I was 19 years old. And for years I’ve been listening to his tapes (yeah, they were tapes back then) on success, motivation and goal-setting.
