Zig Ziglar: 10 quotes from the motivational author
Zig Ziglar, born Hilary Hinton Ziglar, was a native of Alabama and worked as a salesman for many years before becoming a motivational speaker and author of more than 30 books. He said becoming a born-again Christian in 1972 was a major turning point in his life and prompted him to begin incorporating Biblical principles in his work. One of his most famous motivational books, 'See You at the Top,' appeared in 1975 and he was still writing as late as this year, with his book 'Born to Win,' co-written with his son, coming out this past January. During his speaking engagements, he took the stage with global leaders like Margaret Thatcher as well as several US presidents. Ziglar died Nov. 28 in Plano, Tex. Here are 10 quotes from the author.
