Are you familiar with Zig Ziglar? I heard about him 4 years ago and after that his motivational quotes, teachings and books keep showing up in my life.
Zig Ziglar was a Motivational speaker and author. He was passionate about helping others achieve success in their personal and professional lives. He was a prolific speaker who influenced others with his words, beliefs and action to believe in their possibility.
His books, quotes, speeches and what he stood for motivate, inspire, and offer a wealth of ideas, tips and strategies for you to grow professionally and personally. He’s a world-wide personal and business development icon.
Even though he’s left the physical world he’ll continue to have a positive impact on lives all over the world.
I use Zig Ziglar’s inspirational quotes regularly and I would like to share 10 of them with you.
10 of my favorite Zig Ziglar quotes
Do you spend more time planning a party than you do your life? Do you wake up every day and just go through the motions of living without any clear direction or purpose? Of course even with a road map you may have to take a detour but without a plan chaos, uncertainty and frustration will wreak havoc in your life. You need a clear vision of what you want and the steps you need to take to make it happen.
When you perceive an obstacle from a positive mindset you’ll use them
for life lessons
for more strategic planning
to challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone
to re-frame your thinking
for innovation or
to get you out of a creative funk
Obstacles are asking you “are you serious about achieving you goal?”
When you live in gratitude the universe smiles and gives you more for you to appreciate. When you keep your word people smile and trust you. When you smile, others smile because you make them feel good. Gratitude, Trust and smiles are empowering resources that can never be used up.
No one will appreciate your brilliance, be in awe of your skills, or inspired your gifts unless you take action to bring it to their attention. Take one tiny step and start your journey.
Some people cry watching a movie or have deep emotions listening to a song , yet, they’ll dismiss the negative impact of their unkind words saying “they’re just words.”
Words are powerful they can soothe or agitate. They can foster peace or start a riot. Words can affect a person or a targeted group for a life time. Your words can change the world and they can influence others to reach for their dreams. Pay attention to your words.
Do you mentally rewind your past or fast forward to your future? Reminiscing and future planning are important for a successful life. However, if it’s done to escape the present, you’ll never have memorable days because you’re not present to experience them. Stop existing and start living.
The law of reciprocity applies even to friendships, what you give will come back to you. You want a friend be a friend. A simple life changing concept.
It’s a wrap
We live in the age of information. Information is right at our fingertips. The challenge is to avoid information overload. Whether it’s Zig Ziglar or someone else – find a couple of people you admire – people you want to learn from and model. Study them. Model them. And resist being tempted the next shiny object. It’s unproductive and you’ll stay stuck.
