Tribute to Zig Ziglar

Tribute to Zig Ziglar

I have just learned that Zig Ziglar passed away this morning in the United States. This is one of the characters who helped me understand that I could get more out of life by changing my attitude.

Zig Ziglar’s legacy

It was 2003, I was looking for a coach who could teach me how to sell so that I could become better and my choice stopped on Zig. I bought my first box set “See you at the top” from the airport while I was traveling to the US for a big conference in network marketing.

I then bought a whole collection of CDs and books about success and attitude. Thanks to his ability to tell captivating and interesting stories, I realized that attitude was everything, and that the most important thing you can do to succeed is worked on your own self-image.

This is one of the key keys to staying motivated and achieving greatness. I can vividly remember reading his book “See You At The Top”, where he talks about creating this healthy self-image as a prerequisite for success in sales. Without it, you could never succeed in sales or network marketing.

I was driving to downtown Beirut, I was putting Zig Ziglar’s tapes,to better understand what he was explaining, my godfather was in the car with me, he said, “Agnes, why are you listening to this crap?” All you need to do is recruit more people and your results will improve. Because he had achieved the “millionaire” qualification, I thought something was wrong with me.

But reading the books, and Zig Ziglar tapes; these words full of wisdom and inspiration, failing to get people to register with me allowed me to realize that I held the keys to success, allowed me to become a better person, a person that everyone today wants to work with. All I had to do was change my attitude. There was a quote from Zig Ziglar that I etched into my subconscious and that I use every day in my coachings or in my network and I know it is absolutely true.

You can have everything you want in life, if you help enough people get what they want.

What can I say … all this “trick” worked! And still works today I am grateful to the likes of Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor my mentor, Anthony Robins and many others who like him have helped me in my personal journey Because when you get other people to join your business, you can buy a marketing product through one of your affiliate links… The amount of money you earn is nothing compared to how much you help change their lives. This so-called personal development “thing” has changed my life.

Among the most beautiful quotes from Zig Ziglar,this one:

The worst decision of all is one that has not been made.

Will you Take the DECISION that will change your life?

The Stickperson or The Growth Of Your Mind Simply Explained

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.

– William James

If we want to bring order and understanding to our mind, we must have an image of the spirit with which to work.

The mind is an invisible part of our personality, and because of its invisible and imperceptible nature, we must build an image with our imagination.

This is where the genius of Dr. Thurman Fleet created the image of the stickperson.The stickperson

You can imagine that the simplicity of this illustration is only a childish impression of the human being.

This is possible – but it is also a revelation tool: unveiling a world of power, opportunity and promise.

Imagine that within you, you have a power that is far superior and far more powerful than any other condition or circumstance around you.


Referring to the illustration opposite, consider the head as the spirit. A horizontal line cuts the circle that represents the spirit in two parts; the upper part being the conscious mind and the lower part being the subconscious mind.

The Conscious Mind

Is the part that thinks and reasons. This is where free will resides. It is the part of the mind that decides the changes that determines the kind of life you want to experience.

All pain, pleasure and limitation is either created in the conscious mind or accepted without reserve from an outside source. When you accept these thoughts, they are then transferred and impregnated into the subconscious.

You become what you think…

The Subconcious Mind

Ideas that are fixed and rooted in our subconscious are called conditioning or paradigms.

The subconscious operates in every cell of our body. Every thought accepted by the Conscious MUST be accepted by the Subconscious – he has no faculty to reject.

The subconscious is also called the emotional mind.

This part works in a very orderly way. We talk about it by saying “BY LAW”. The expression of the subconscious is manifested through our actions and our feelings. All thought impregnated into the subconscious becomes a fixed part of our personality. These fixed ideas or habits are the conditioned mind or the paradigms. The Subconscious is often called the spiritual side of our personality or the Universal Spirit. It has no limit except that imposed by the individual.

Develop power and control through the management of your thoughts by imbuing it with powerful motivated actions, encouraging success through growing thoughts that must and will produce the desired results.

Indeed, whatever we desire with determination and concentration, by putting our intentions, we manage to create it.
