135 Zig Ziglar Quotes (Motivation, Success, Gratitude)

zig ziglar quotes

There is something about Zig Ziglar in which when you read and listen to him, you feel extremely motivated. And I am not just talking pumped up. I am talking about literally feeling like all of your goals and dreams can come true. And are well within your grasp in the here and now.

I have never been inspired by anyone more than zig in the personal development arena. He was a master at his craft. A tireless worker. And truly a gift to everyone who had, has and ever will have a chance to be graced by his work.

He was a man of his word. Pride himself on honesty and loyalty. And truly believed in what he was saying and teaching.

Every time I listen to Zig, it is like I am listening to a whole new audio of things I missed the last time around. His work is packed with life changing material that makes you want to do better. Become more. And give back more than you ever.

He was a walking example of his teachings. And I will be forever grateful for the impact he has had on my life. And the impact he will continue to add. As like Zig said, you need to listen or read something 16 times for you to get the full message. Which I intend to do with all the works I have ever bought of his teachings!

He had a way of feeling like you guys were close friends. Or at least could become close friends during and by the end of his teachings. He was a teacher but he didn’t act or appear to be above.

For me at least, he was able to connect with me to where I learned from him but felt as if he was an equal with me. Which, in my opinion, is the perfect definition of what a teacher should be.

This list is for Zig, a guy who has taught me so much. And inspired be to get better. EVERY SINGLE DAY.
