Remembering Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar, the great motivational speaker, passed away last week at the age of 86.  Ziglar was a great inspiration to me.  Through his writings, I learned the power of a positive attitude, determination and faith.

I'm devoting this column to his memory by sharing a few of his insightful quotes:

*  Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.

*  Failure is a detour, not a dead end street.

*  A lot of people quit looking for work as soon as they find a job.

*  If you don't see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner.

*  Every choice you make has an end result.

*  If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost.

*  Every obnoxious act is a cry for help.

*  It's not what you've got, but what you use that makes a difference.

*  Failure is an event, not a person.

*  Expect the best, prepare for the worst, capitalize on what comes.

*  Many marriages would be better if husbands and wives clearly understood that they are on the same side.

*  The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.

*  Some adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful.

*  Money won't make you happy. . . but everyone wants to find out for themselves.

*  A goal properly set is halfway reached.

*  Mature love follows the principle, "I am loved love because I love."

*  It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.

*  See you at the top!
