Zig Ziglar : Motivational Speaker, Businessman, Self Help Author


Hilary Hinton "Zig" Ziglar (born November 6, 1926) is an American author, salesperson, and motivational speaker.

His latest book (as of 2007) is God's Way Is Still the Best Way. He is an evangelical Christian, an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys, as well as an enthusiastic golfer.

Motto: "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want."

        Zig Ziglar, a talented author and speaker, has an appeal that transcends barriers of age, culture, and occupation.

Since 1970, he has traveled over five million miles across the world delivering powerful life improvement messages, cultivating the energy of change. Mr. Ziglar has shared the platform with such distinguished Americans as Presidents Ford, Reagan, and Bush, Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Paul Harvey, and Dr. Robert Schuller, as well as numerous U.S. congressmen and governors.

A well-known authority on the science of human potential, Zig Ziglar has been recognized three times in the Congressional Record of the United States for his work with youth in the drug war, and for his dedication to America and the free enterprise system.

Speaking the language of active business leaders, he's been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Dallas Morning News, and Fortune magazine, to name a few. Mr. Ziglar has also appeared on many television programs.

Ziglar did not inherit his professional status, nor was it an accident. After struggling early in his sales career, this Yazoo City, Mississippi, native paid the price of time, discipline, and energy to become a sales champion. He placed second in one national firm of over 7,000 and first in another company with a 3,000-plus sales staff.

In 1970, he launched his full-time speaking career and built a multi-million dollar corporation on the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences--hard work, common sense, fairness, integrity, commitment, and an infectious sense of humor.

Since 1970, an extensive array of Ziglar audio, video, books, and training manuals have been utilized by small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, U.S. Government agencies, churches, school districts, prisons, and non-profit associations, affecting lives in a profound way.

Mr. Ziglar has written numerous celebrated books on personal growth, leadership, sales, faith, family, and success, including: Better Than Good,   Sales Success,   Selling 101,   Ziglar on Selling,   Success and the Self-Image,   See You at the Top,   Over The Top,   Zig Ziglar's Secrets of Closing the Sale,   Steps to the Top,
