“You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” This statement defining a philosophy of success, wealth and happiness is perhaps the most famous quote of legendary speaker, author, and businessman Zig Ziglar. Yet the monumental legacy of this incredible man can hardly be summarized by a single quote or idea. For Zig Ziglar was truly a giant in the field of personal development.
“The Master of Motivation”, Zig Ziglar has been described as “one of America’s icons”, “the salesman’s salesman”, and “a legacy that will forever impact our history”. Helping people to achieve long-term balanced success based on his philosophy of character, attitude, and skills, he has impacted more than a quarter billion people and continues to make a difference in the lives of those who act on his philosophy.
In these audio volumes, you’ll hear Zig onstage in front of a live audience as well as offstage in several intimate studio recordings. You’ll hear Zig at his most energetic in the very early days of his career, and you’ll hear him at his most reflective and thoughtful in recordings just a few years before his passing. But regardless of when and where Zig delivered his message, one thing remained constant: The unforgettable and timeless truths that Zig spoke changed the lives of millions of people. And I have no doubt that after listening to this series, your life will be changed for the better as well.
The first volume in our series is titled The Foundational Qualities for Success. Any great achievement – be it a beautiful building, a winning sports team, or a successful life – must start with a solid foundation. Yet in our society, which is increasingly focused on “quick fix” answers and “fast track” careers, few people have the patience to build a proper foundation, and even fewer people have the skills to convince others to do so. That’s just one additional way that Zig Ziglar was unique. He never skipped over the importance of building a foundation for success. In fact you could say that Zig was the greatest persuader there ever was in convincing others to make foundational qualities for success a priority.
