Every year, Zig Ziglar travels all over the world, delivering a
resounding message of hope and commitment in forums ranging from
high-powered business conferences to youth conventions, church
leadership assemblies, and educational gatherings. In "Zig," Ziglar
chronicles another kind of journey: his own transformation from a
struggling, not terribly successful salesman to the sales champion
of several different companies, to his current position as one of
the world's best-known and most highly regarded motivational
speakers and trainers. As he describes his experiences, he brings
to life the essence of his teachings: "You can have everything in
life you want if you will just help enough other people get what
At the heart of Ziglar's story are the people who taught him the
importance of balancing a commitment to hard work with compassion
for others. His first teacher was his mother, who raised him alone
after the early death of his father, and introduced him to the
principles and values he has honored for the rest of his life. Her
lessons were reinforced by many others -- from the men and women
who became his business mentors, to the friends and spiritual
leaders who comforted and supported him when things got tough.
Paying tribute to each of them, Ziglar zeroes in on the philosophy
and traits that have enabled him to achieve success in business and
in his personal life -- discipline, hard work, common sense,
integrity, commitment, and an infectious sense of humor.
Ziglar's speaking engagements and seminars, along with a wide
array of audio and video materials, books and training manuals,
have helped to trigger positive changes in small businesses,
Fortune 500 companies,U.S. government agencies, nonprofit
associations, religious organizations, schools, and prisons. His
extra-ordinary success has earned him features in The New York
Times, The Washington Post, Fortune, Time, and Esquire, as well as
appearances on "The Today Show, " "20/20, " "60 Minutes, " and
"Hour of Power." At once engaging and enlightening, "Zig" provides
a riveting portrait of the man who has achieved so much by
embracing the simple but profound goal of helping others.
