©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.
It feels out dated and like part of some legacy training system but that doesn't interfere with the quality of the content which is timeless and Zig's delivery which is folksy but effective at making you smile. I greatly enjoyed these talks.
Loved it. Zig is the absolute man. Genuine and caring. Learned so much from maximizing your time by combining things, importance of looking in the mirror and being positive in your speech.
After dealing with depression and feeling low on energy, motivation, drive, and downright miserable every day, I desperately needed a pick-me-up. This book gave me understanding that it is MY attitude that needs changing, not the things around me. Zig helped me pick myself up. I sleep better, do better at work, and most importantly, I am happier than I have been in a long time. Money cant buy happiness, but its right up there with oxygen. This book is a must!
"Would've made an excellent short , padded too much"
Clever reader involvement but took too long to get to point.
Voice was very intriguing
Stay motivated The concise version for people in a hurry.
Clever guy, just needs less rumination.
I have listened to this three times so far. I say so far, because I will listen to it time and time again. It keeps me focused, it keeps me grounded. What an amazing man Zig Ziglar is. I find myself quoting him often and it always makes people laugh.
His technique is to entertain whilst you learn but with a strong, clear message. Not easy I'm sure, but he delivers it so well.
I highly recommend this. Even if you don't think you need to, you will find it beneficial, I'm sure.
"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.
"Wow, fantastic book!"
Good old Zig didnt disappoint. I have listened to most, if not all of his podcasts, have read many of his books and this one was another gem. For anyone looking for real motivation, read this book. You will not be disappointed. Zig, thank you very much. I'll keep reading this book till I commit your advice to memory and its a part of me. For everything you shared in this book, thank you! Your books are helping me change my life. I cannot wait to see myself in 5 years. God bless your family.
"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.
