    Zig Ziglar has dedicated his life to teaching people the art of successful living. However, he has discovered that "being successful" is only part of life's challenge. Success is very often a short-lived high. People arrive at the goal line in life, look into the end zone and discover that it contains many of the things that money will buy, but it contains very little of what money won't buy. Zig believes that yes, success is worth it, but it is not enough. The next step is to move from success into significance.

As speakers, we are in the information business; we are deluged with information coming at us from all directions, and the sense of overwhelm can rob us of productivity and make us feel eternally behind.
