In this tape, Zig Ziglar uses stories, reasearch nuggets and powerful metaphors to drive home his points in an extremely powerful way. He is very present when he speaks and the tape is not only informative, it is funny and entertaining.
This is a perfect tape to listen to over and over again while you are commuting. This is how I used it for many years. As a personal growth coach who does a large amount of public speaking, workshops and one-on-one coaching -- I feel I am in a good position to judge the merit of what is out there.
Zig is a Christian and this might not go over well with some audiences. However, he doesn't push this agenda, but he does at different points use some illustrations that come from the bible. For example, in one section he quotes the bible about money saying, "he who seeks silver, will never be satisfied with silver" and goes on to explain how you can never have enough money, UNLESS the money has you. I think that's a very wise statement and it's not money itself that is bad, but how you use it. The point he seems to be making is that are you a good steward of your money, which I think it a relevant point that requires guts to make in the current business environment. In fact, I would suggest it's an essential point.
Cognitively, I probably knew most of what was in this audio. However, I know it differently now at a deeper level because of using it. This tape is done in such a way that the ideas sink in deeply and become a part of you. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Also, in addition to working in psychology, I was also a marketing person for Xerox when they were Fortune 25. I went through their International Center for Management Development and won their Team Xerox Spirt Award. The point of me sharing this is that I know what it takes to train sales and marketing people and I recognize a good and practical resource when I come across it. I don't think you can go wrong with this audio, especially at the price they are offering it at.
My 3 takeaways after listening to him ~ 1/2 dozen times are
1) Write your Goals down
If you want to achieve your goals and are serious about accomplishing them. Write them down. 99% of people do not write their goals down, and never achieve their goals.
2) Make your goals public
When you tell people about your goals, you are on the "hook" to achieve them. Goals not written down or kept in secret or private, seldom or never get accomplished because there is no accountability.
3) We live every day, and hope to die once
We don't live once. We live every day. Goals help us to live better everyday. Instead of hoping to get through the day, make each day a cherish able day.
Mr. Zig Ziglar is wonderful inspirational human being whom has dedicated his life to making living better.
