Zig Ziglar Quotes

I was recently looking up a quote from Zig Ziglar – my all time favorite motivational speaker and realized I should make a list so I don’t need to go digging so often.  So here are the ones I have gathered over time from different places – not just his books and recordings.  I hope you find them useful.  If there are some good ones I missed please let me know and I will verify and add them.

I have the pleasure of meeting Zig in about a year or so before he died.  It was a great day for me.  At the same time I got to have lunch with him, his son Tom and his daughter Julie.  What a really genuine family of believers.  Did you ever get to spend time with Zig?  Leave a comment and tell us all about it.  I know I would be interested.

God Bless and Give with Passion,


Some of my favorites:

  4. “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”
