Although I am not a Christian, I endorse Zig Ziglar. His motivational style is so unique, so sincere that he really inspires me to do more.
Here are some of his motivational quotes that get me really motivated:
"You can have everything in life you want if you'll just help enough other people to get what they want!"
"When you do what you ought to do, when you ought to do it, EVENTUALLY you will be able to do what you want to do when you want to do to do it."
"Life is not easy, life is tough, but when your tough on yourself, life is going to be infinitely easier on you."
"Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is"
Go listen to Zig and get MOTIVATED!

I was a little put-off because Mr. Ziglar sounds a lot like a televangelist, but once I got used to his accent and speaking style, I got over it, and could focus on his message. He does a very good job of explaining why goals are important, and his stories and anecdotes are very entertaining and they prove his point. The reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I found that he spent 99 percent of the time telling stories and selling me on why goal setting is important, and only 1 percent of the time explaining _how_ to set them and how to manage the goal index cards. This is a review of the audio CDs -- maybe there is more detail in the book.

This is truly an excellent audio which has been worth many times its price to me. I have listened to it literally hundreds if not thousands of times over the last twenty years and it has helped me in my life to be successful in a variety of positions, through career transitions, etc.

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.

Begin with a set of specific written goals

Understand the reasons behind your ambitions

Identify the resources you need to achieve success

Develop a scheduled plan of action

These are very good basics, basics that people will listen to but winners WILL FOLLOW. They may seem like just mere common sense tips, but if taken to heart, these guideposts will change one's life I believe. I have had problems with my organizational skills and focus throughout my life and throughout my career my focus has been getting sharper, but I'm humble enough to realize that these things can help me.

Zig may sound a lot like a TV Preacher, but he is full of common sense that I fear not enough people actually apply in their lives. One needs to get past his southern drawl and to the core of his powerful messages. He is also criticized by some for overemphasizing Christianity, and being overzealous in this regard. I didn't hear him say the word "GOD" once during his presentation.

With his inimitable wit and wisdom, Zig explains goal setting and achievement. His audio/video presentations are timeless, and can be counted upon to be relevant. I have listened, repeatedly, to this title, as well as, "How To Be A Winner," and always come away with a fresh perspective, renewed motivation, and better achievement skills. The best example of Zig's philosophy is the golden rule, which he expresses by saying, "You can have everything in life you want, if you just help enough other people get what they want." Buy this for yourself, your family, your friends, and listen often.

I bought this a while ago, in the tape format. So I just relistened and again was blown away by the zest and warmth of Zig Ziglar's spirit to really help you.

He offers a seven-step formula for helping you clearly lay out a plan for success.

He sprinkles it with wonderful inspiring stories. It makes want to start now so you can reap the rewards as soon as possible. Wonderful stuff.
