©2008 Zig Ziglar; (P)2008 Made For Success
Found that I had a little pep and "go git it" in my step while listening to this.
There's a lot of practical advice which is nice to see too.
These are some "Zigisms" that you may have heard in the past. In the 80's when I first heard some of this information, it took me to the "next level." Today, when I've accomplished more than I ever dreamed I could have, complacency had begun to take hold in my life. Zig has reinvigorated me with his stories and timeless truths.
Zig, his great stories, style, and delivery, give me a chuckle of truth realization.
I've seen him live in the 80's several times. After each seminar, even after a repeat of some of the same material, my productivity and income increased. This has brought up some of the same feelings one gets from experiencing a high point from your past, that encourages you to spring forward into a more fulfilling future.
NO, there are so many truisms in this book; that one listens to a section, evaluates the best application to their life, writes down the goals derived from that section, then puts them into practice. Then I like to replay that section to pick up that which I missed on the first listen.
This is a book I will listen to many times. It will be a good book for each January.
I've heard so much about Zig Ziglar in the past, and thought I'd check him out. Unfortunately, Zig is everything I hate about public speaking. It's a big show, it's not science-based - he even tells the star fish story!To be fair, it's likely that he created a lot of the stereotypical stories that bad speakers use today. But it doesn't change the fact that this is feel-good stuff, without much to back it up.
Zig lifts me up when I am down; makes me believe in myself when I have doubts; draws me closer to God when I feel lost; Zig Zigler is just a awesome motivator and person.
Makes you laugh till you cry.
I really enjoy Zig Ziglar's books. This was just a cheap way to get a new title out of prior material. Very disappointing.
Waste of money........
Zig Ziglar is an awesome trainer, inspirational speaker and great mentor. His teachings are real and a lot of time will hit close to home and funny at the same time. I have listened to this particular book several times and I have found it not only reminds me of things I a have forgotten but I pick up something new every time as well. He makes learning fun and that sure does help keep a person motivated.
Zig Ziglar sure puts a lot of life into his teachings.
I laughed a lot.
I also, learned a lot. It opened my eyes to some things some I never thought about. Made want to listen over and over again.
I'm sure Zig has great thoughts. But he doesn't finish them. He just rambles on and puts a story in a story. It's hard to be motivated because I don't have any takeaways. I have listened to about 20 minutes and totally regret this purchase. His strong accent coupled with the rambling makes everything hard to follow. I would recommend reading this as a book if you are going to try to get anything out of it.
Needs more structure!
Someone who is a professional narrator - not a personality.
Disappointment and confusion.
I would get back to part of it sometime next year. repeating the information helps you to remeber
How to Win Friends and Influence People. I admit they are two different categories but make you understand yourself and the message is that everything around you is affected by you. No matter what your personality is. Try to understand yourself, help others, and you make an improvement around you that benefits everyone.
A lady who was complaining about her job and could not find anything good about it. The final closing sentence of "you can't believe how the people in the office have changed" is funny
Automotive university and using time. I listen to audible books or music while working out which is much better than watching TV with all the reality TV shows and meaningless video clips
He has high energy and transfers it to listeners. I think because the audible is recoreded in front of audience, it has more emotion
Zig Ziglar is such an inspiring, motivating and entertaining person. This is THE best audibook that I've ever listened to and it is one that you can listen to again and again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
