Publisher's Summary

Irrepressible, enlightening, and extraordinarily successful, here's Zig Ziglar presented live during one of his electrifying public seminars. This master motivator has adapted his proven techniques for everyone's use and endless benefit.

One of the biggest excuses why people don't set goals is they're not sold on the idea. Zig will sell you, fast! And convince you that goal-setting is the single most important step you can take on your new road to success. He offers a precise formula for doing just that. Complete with the inspiration to welcome the risks involved, his strategies for boosting your self-image will carry you to the top. Filled with hilarious anecdotes, encouragement, and wisdom, Zig Ziglar is the man everyone would want to invite for dinner. This is precisely the personal style he conveys in How to Get What You Want. You will find a dramatic change in your attitude and achievement once you have encountered the inimitable Mr. Ziglar.

Listen to everything by Zig Ziglar.

    "Engaging speaker, but light on content"

    Very simple concepts, but not much content, details or techniques.

    Overview:
    Set specific goals, write them down and commit.
    Interference:
    1)Fear of failure
    2)Self perception and feeling you deserve to meet your goals
    3)Focus on the present task (Dont worry about other things)
    4)Help others get what they want

    He also aligns materialism with Christianity.

    "A Must Have!"

    This is Zig at his best! This is an earlier recording that I believe is more motivating than most. As Zig got older, he slowed down in his speech and excitement. The content was still there but not at the same level of excitement.

    "Very Motivational"

    This was a great listen. You've got to love Zig! His stories and humor mix nicely with his simple message. I subscribe to his philosophy of making small, incremental changes that eventually lead to a long-term success habit.

    7 Habits and The Toyota Way are my next listens!

    Good stuff, Zig!

    "This is a Speech, not a Book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Difficult to say. Zig made some good points in this recorded speech, but I wasn't particularly moved to do anything. There are no steps given to "get what you want."


    Has How to Get What You Want turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I wouldn't say it turned me off. I just need to make sure I'm listening to an actual book, not a speech.


    What three words best describe Zig Ziglar’s voice?

    Motivational speaker


    Do you think How to Get What You Want needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. A follow-up book would provide more depth to this hour long speech.
