My 10 Favorite Zig Ziglar Quotes

Zig Ziglar, a renowned motivational speaker, trainer and a faithful Christian, died yesterday (Nov 28th) morning at the age of 86 after a bout of pneumonia.  Zig Ziglar’s books and training for success have influenced millions of people over the decades.

Zig Ziglar is the person who introduced me to the world of sales and marketing through his tapes and books many years ago.  As a Christian, Zig Ziglar is very special to me because he “was able to connect Kingdom principles with professional life in a way that brought excellence, integrity and productivity to the workplace in the name of Jesus Christ” as Dr. Tony Evans shared with The Christian Post.

I would like to share my 10 favorite Zig Ziglar Quotes with you.  I hope they will bless you and change your life in a profound way.
