Zig Ziglar is definitely one of the top motivational speakers who have inspired literally hundreds of thousands of people.
This video highlights some of his most powerful teaching points (with some rather dramatic background music).
Here are my top 3 take-aways:
When you learn how to get the things that money CAN’T buy, you actually get more of the things that money CAN buy.
Peace of mind, real friendships…these are things that money can’t buy. However, the interesting thing is that these are the values that, in turn, fuel financial abundance. You don’t need to wait until you have alot of money in order to feel peace, love, and joy. You don’t need to wait until you’re rich in order to feel that you are rich in friendships, experiences, and opportunities. Feeling rich in this way crowds out feelings of stress and lack and this is precisely what creates the mindset you need to create financial abundance in your life.
Your philosophy of life is the key.
Zig is famous for his quote:
Living by this philosophy has been the key to Zig’s success and legacy. Think about what your philosophy should be. What set of values/way of thinking will be the foundation for how you live your life with success? Your philosophy is the key to building a life that works and works well.
You can change where you are by changing what goes in your mind.
As Zig says, don’t waste energy caring over what has happened in your past or what your circumstances are in the moment. You have full power over what you do now and that is what will affect your future. You have to see your future as more important than your past. And changing your future all starts with how you think. Make plans, think bigger, and expect to win.
