More About Zig Ziglar
Hilary Hinton "Zig" Ziglar (November 6, 1926 – November 28, 2012) was an American author, salesman, and motivational speaker.
Zig Ziglar was born in Coffee County in southeastern Alabama to parents John Silas Ziglar and Lila Wescott Ziglar. He was the tenth of twelve children.
In 1931, when Ziglar was five years old, his father took a management position at a Mississippi farm, and his family moved to Yazoo City, where he spent most of his early childhood. The next year, his father died of a stroke, and his younger sister died two days later.
Ziglar served in the United States Navy during World War II (c. 1943 to 1945). He was in the Navy V-12 Navy College Training Program and attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina. In 1944, he met his wife, Jean, in the capital city of Mississippi, Jackson; he was seventeen and she was sixteen. They married in late 1946.
Ziglar later worked as a salesman in a succession of companies. In 1968, he became a vice president and training director for the Automotive Performance company, moving to Dallas, Texas.
As of 2010, Ziglar still traveled around taking part in motivational seminars, despite a fall down a flight of stairs in 2007 that left him with short-term memory problems. State Representative Chris Greeley of Maine mentions Ziglar in the credits of his CD on public speaking.
Ziglar wove his Christianity into his motivational work. He was also an open Republican who endorsed former Governor Mike Huckabee for his party's presidential nomination in 2008.
Ziglar, who had been suffering from pneumonia, died at the age of eighty-six at a hospital in Plano, Texas on November 28, 2012.
Zig Ziglar currently resides in Dallas, in the state of Texas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Better Than Good?
To those who are put off by Ziglar's religious tone to this book., even he states... May 8, 2007
To those who are put off by Ziglar's religious tone to this book in their reviews, even Ziglar states that he knows some people might be put off by it, and 20+ years ago he was not a real believer in God or anything else. He just wanted to make money. He states the change came over time.
I am not Christian, but I am spiritual. Yet I was not offended or bothered by his religious overtones. After all, he is just stating openly what he calls the passion to his success. How his life and the lessons in his life changed when he did take God into his heart and follow God's path. I feel no reason for me to be closed minded to his writing as I truly respect the man and the good he has done. Maybe, just maybe I can be even more open minded to see if his path can also be my path.
I think an important point in the book for me was when he stated all the big important people that helped to form this country (Washington, Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson...) and how these people and our country were built on religious standards and helped to create these great people. But as education is taught less and less from religious and moral influence (for 200 years the alphabet was taught with each letter referencing a biblical verse and moral standard) the country has produced less and less great leaders that compare to our founding fathers. So maybe Zig has a point about incorporating a better than good life with some religious/spiritual overtones.
Finally something that really stands out for me is realizing how I and so many others who are famous (no, I am not famous) would probably change their actions if they started looking at how they are moral role-models to so many young kids and they are helping to shape the future due to their actions. I know for me I am beginning to rethink what I do and how I do it and how I might be able to help shape the future leaders with my calling.
Well, just my two cents.
Great stuff for learning how self-talk can change you outlook Mar 20, 2007
Great book by one of the leaders in motivation. The book has many old ideas for his previous work but it also has some great new ideas, A good addition to your collection if your a fan or if you want to start one.
