I am a friend named Edwin Britt who was inspired by the teaching of ZIG Ziglar.

Edwin Britt

Today Edwin is recognized as one of the best Transformational Sales Trainers and Leadership Motivators in the country.


I would say that in my life I have been influenced by a number of powerful authors and speakers including ZIG Ziglar. Other on that list would be Dale Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peele, Scott Peck, Stephen Covey, Jim Collins, and Wayne Dyer. Those were the people I read while I was working in Higher Ed.

Since 2018 I have become a big fan of many other authors including Jon Gordon, Simon Sinek, Patrick Lencioni, Chip & Dan Heath, and Brene Brown.

I loved ZIG Ziglar because he used great quotes and stories that drove home his leadership message. He wrote 33 books and they included a lot of wonderful life lessons.

Here are 10 Quotes from ZIG

1. “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.”

2. “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

3. “If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.”

4. “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”

5. “Building a better you is the first step to building a better America.”

6. “Every choice you make has an end result.”

7. “A goal properly set is halfway reached.”

8. “It’s not what you’ve got, it’s what you use that makes a difference.”

9. “If you learn from defeat, you haven’t really lost.”

10. “The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.”

If one of these quotes lifted your mood today share the post with someone else. I bet it will make ZIG all smile down on us.
