Remembering Zig Ziglar: One man’s life and legacy

Friday, November 30th, 2012

In a time of great political, economic, and even spiritual unrest, those who were able to shed a light on these complex times are ones that must be remembered.  One such man was Zig Ziglar, the famed motivational speaker and sales expert.


Ziglar’s life, like many of the great people mention on this site, was sprinkled with accounts of diversity, hardship, success, and beauty.  Growing up in the deep South, Zig lost his father at the age five, and left his mother to raise 12 children. Out of the tragic loss was born a sense of admiration for self-reliance and hard work. Zig countless books, programs, speaking engagements, and audio programs are a testament to how disciplined he was.

To help remember Zig’s impact on the world, below are some of his best quotes. If one speaks to you, simply write it down, memorize it, or share it with a friend of family member.

““When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.”

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”

“Failure is an event not a person”

“Attitude, not Aptitude, determines Altitude.”

“There are no traffic jams on the extra mile.”

“When you are tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you”

“You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.”
