©2008 Zig Ziglar; (P)2008 Made For Success
This audio book discusses all the essential elements necessary for; changing your thinking, seeing yourself in the best light , living life everyday to maximize and fulfill your potential........ the speaker has a very high energy level which sets the tone for this wonderful experience..... "Automobile University" was never so much fun!!!!
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Entertaining, logical and motivating. This series of public talks do what they claim. Of course motivation comes from within and Mr Ziglar (who narrates and does an excellent job) can't motivate you but he does instruct how you can motivate yourself. His accent is truly entertaining to listen to. Worth the purchase and time spent listening.
Zig is solid on his content, engages the audience and motivates me to do whatever I want to do, but struggle to prioritize. I always get something done that I've put off after listening to him.
I'm just this guy, you know?
When I first listened to this, I was new to Zig Ziglar. From the first five minutes, I knew it was going to be fantastic.
Zig's teachings have changed my mindset. I am in control of the direction of my life. That hasn't always been as obvious as it is now. Even just looking up and realizing how good things are can be a challenge for some people. Zig helped me see that.
Every few months I pop this back in to listen again. It may be the best money I've ever spent.
I love the fact that by listening to this audio book over and over, I learn new suggestions and ideas which keeps me and reminds me to keep me motivated in my personal life as well as in my career.
Some authors just should not read their own books I to audio. I liked the book but I primarily listen when I drive and his voice keep lulling me to to sleep. I couldn't actually pay attention to the content because of it.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU. I LOVE ZIG ZIGLAR. PEOPLE WHO READ MAKE MORE MONEY. PEOPLE WHO WATCH LESS TV MAKE MORE $$ AND MORE HAPPY. RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT. TAKE CONTROL OF YOU LIFE AND SCHEDULE EVERY DAY, LIFE IS SHORT.
ZIG SAYS WE TELL OUR KIDS 17K TIMES YOU KEEP DOING THAT YOU WILL BE X,Y,Z. LETS TELL THEM THEY ARE GREAT. MY SON IS BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD. HE CAN DO ANYTHING HE PUTS HIS MIND TO!
I WILL LISTEN TO THIS 16 TIMES LIKE HE SAID. I WILL MAKE MY SCHEDULE AND LISTEN TO POSITIVE STUFF EARLY TO RELEASE ALL THE POSITIVE STUFF INTO MY HEAD. I WILL WRITE IT DOWN
IF YOU DO ANYTHING IN 2016, BUT THIS, LISTEN TO IT 16 TIMES, SHARE WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN. I WANT TO RELEASE THE MUSIC INSIDE OF ME FOR MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
"Common Sense, Straight Talking and Good Humour"
I came too late to Zig Ziglar; only learning of the great man after his passing. I had always meant to listen to some of his stuff but never got around to it. An Audible trial was the ideal opportunity to try it out and I have been delighted with it (both Audible and this recording). Zig's common sense, straight talking and good humour makes listening to these recordings an absolute delight and he has me driving around with a smile on my face as I listen to his Southern drawl via my car's bluetooth device for my iPhone. This is my first time listening to Zig's stuff and I do not know the extent to which this compilation is repetitious, but as a newcomer it is tremendously good material and you get a huge volume of it in this one item. Zig was clearly a very religious man and this comes across very strongly in his talks; this may not be to everyone's taste but as with everything Zig does he carries it off very lightly and in a very charming way which I did not find overbearing despite the fact that that was not what I was listening for. I'm only about halfway through this bumper set but I have no hesitation in recommending it very highly.
"Fun, inspiring and motivational! Great stuff"
As a coach I have recommended this audio programme to many clients over the years, all of which have loved it. Great for motivating yourself, for building confidence and for developing a great PMA. I have listened to it many times and still hear golden nuggets that I either didn't hear before or had forgotten.
It his voice, its soo annoying and he goes around the houses before getting to the point, its so long winded
No I dont like his voice and he shouts
get someone else to record it
"good common sense with religious undertones!"
I likes the messages within the cd and the stories and hummer used, i found the cd a little bit preshy and felt one of the life messages was to find faith!
i would not try another book, this one was a series of studio and seminar recordings which repeat, repetition seems to be key to staying motivated as with a lot of things in life. i imagen any further recordings would be of a similar nature.u could just listen to the same cd again and again!
it is very old fashioned and feels like an old recording in style, very 1990 american chat show/ american church style.
"Your own personal Dicky Fox"
Ever watch the film Jerry Maguire? Know how the film is split up with words of advice and inspiration by Jerry's mentor Dicky Fox? Well Zig Ziglar was a real life Dicky Fox. It's an audiobook of advice from the great uncle you never had, or the guy in a bar in a strange town you wish you'd meet. There's nothing new here. Nothing which in many ways isn't blindingly obvious. However, it's uplifting, motivating and heart-warming. A great buy.
