    Life Lessons
    Hilary “Zig” Ziglar
  • Hilary Hinton “Zig” Ziglar is an amazing American author, salesperson, and motivational speaker.  Ziglar was born in Coffee County, Alabama as the tenth of twelve children. Ziglareventually became a salesman and worked for several different sales companies. During this time his sales skills grew as did his desire to become a motivational speaker.
  • In 1970, Ziglar decided to become
    a full-time motivational speaker. 
    Up until this point he’d gone by the name, Hilary Ziglar, but he decided to call himself “Zig,” as he was referred to by his sales associates (and it stuck). Ziglarhas been very successful, and still travels, taking part in motivational seminars.
  • Lesson 1 : Motivation is Critical
    Never underestimate the power of motivation.  Every morning I listen to motivational audiobooks, this time of inspiration and motivation gives me the boost to be successful throughout my day. 
    The world is filled with negativity; it’s important that you get your “motivational fix” daily!
  • “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
  • Lesson 2 : There Will Always be Little Men
    There will always be critics, there will always be people saying, “How you can’t, why you can’t, and how you’re going to fail when you try.”  There will always be “little men,” and it’s not that they intend to do you harm; they just can’t fathom “big things.”  They live in a “little world,” …so never try to force a million dollar idea, in a $10/hour brain, it just won’t fit.
  • “Little men with little minds and little imaginations go through life in little ruts, smugly resisting all changes which would jar their little worlds.”
  • Lesson 3 : Balance is Necessary
    Success means balance!  There are people who have financial success, but who are miserable. 
    There are people who have great family lives, but can’t purchase the basic necessities of life.
    Success means balance, it means having the best of both worlds, it means having your cake and eating it to.  What good is cake if you can’t eat it?
  • “I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.”
  • Lesson 4 : Talent Utilization is Key
    Use what you got!  I will never be a great singer, it’s not in the cards for me, but that’s okay, I can still have everything I “really” want in life.  You may not be the smartest, you may not be the tallest, but you are “you,” and there’s not anyone who can be “you,” like you.  You must learn to utilize this priceless advantage.
  • “It’s not what you’ve got; it’s what you use that makes a difference.”
  • Lesson 5 : Positive Thinking is Certainly Better than Negative Thinking
    Positive thinking gives you the advantage; it allows you to see opportunities that you may have otherwise missed.  It opens your eyes, so to speak.  Negative thinking, of course, does the opposite, it allows you to miss opportunities, and it numbs your ability to perceive the possibilities.
  • In short, positive thinking is better than negative thinking, besides, no one likes to hang around a negative person.  They’re like “dead weight,” dragging everyone down around them.  Decide to be positive; lift up all those who enter your domain.
  • “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.”
  • Lesson 6 :  Vision is Crucial
    This is so important, so many people struggle for the simple reason that they are unable to see themselves successful.  If you talk to someone who is significantly overweight, chances are you’ll find that they are unable to see themselves “skinny,” they can’t consistently perceive it.  If you don’t really believe it’s possible for you, you can’t consistently see it.
  • “If you don’t see yourself as a winner, then you cannot perform as a winner. You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.”
  • “If you can’t see it, you can’t have it.” You must see it!  Your life is exactly what you’ve been able to see and believe up until this point.
  • Lesson 7 : Success Defined
    Success is not becoming a billionaire.  “Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.”  Success is being you’re very best; it’s giving your all, to worthy goals.  It’s fully utilizing the unique talents and gifts that you have been given.
  • “Success is the maximum utilization of the ability that you have.”
  • So the question is, “Are you going to succeed, are you going to give your very best?”  If you are, then success will be yours!
    Thank You Very Much
