Read through some inspirational quotes from the legendary Zig Ziglar.
Today, we’re very sad to have lost the legendary Zig Ziglar after a short battle with pneumonia at age 86. Widely known for his motivational speeches and corporate training to help better people’s lives and careers, Ziglar inspired many businesses, salespeople, and marketers — in addition to countless others — by showing us the “The Ziglar Way.”
Ziglar was the author of more than 29 sales and motivational books, including See You at the Top and Over the Top. Because he has motivated so many marketers and salespeople throughout his more than 50-year long career, we thought a great way to honor his life would be to compile a list of some of our favorite Zig Ziglar quotations — quotations that any marketer, salesperson, or business can learn from.
