RIP Zig Ziglar–You Were An Inspiration

zig ziglarOver the past several months it seems we are on the continued path of losing one of our great thought leaders. Today, we learn of the passing of an icon in the world of motivation, Zig Ziglar.

Regardless of what type of business you are in, I’m sure you have had some type of encounter with Zig’s quotes, books, audios, or if you are lucky–a live workshop.


To pay our respects, I’ve gathered some of my favorite quotes from this great and inspirational man.


  • “Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, and poor people have small libraries and big TVs.”
  • “Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.”
  • “Make today worth remembering.”
  • “Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully.”
  • “The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.”
  • “A goal properly set is halfway reached.”
  • “If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”
  • “Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking the tartar sauce with you.”
  • “You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”
  • “The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing because you think you can only do a little.”

Thank you Zig Ziglar for you impact on my life and the life of so many others. Your inspiration, humor, and authenticity were one of a kind. May you rest in peace.
