  5. Zig Ziglar was my mentor from afar. The first positive mental attitude I read was his book, See You at the Top. I’ve read several of his books, listened to hours of recordings, and have him speak at numerous functions. I can’t say enough about the impact he had on my life and on the millions of others. Rest in Peace Zig

  6. Mr. Ziglar R.I.P lived an iconic life and shared his wisdom with 1/4 of a billion people or more.
    What if all of us who have been touched by his spirit and wisdom were to share that
    spirit and wisdom with those we come in touch with on a daily basis?

  7. Words can’t truly express my gratitude for the knowledge he passed on to me and many others during his time with us. I’ll just say “Thank You.”

  8. After 14 years in Finance, when I was asked to head a sales organisation as Sales Director I had no clue what to do. I was fortunate that I picked up the right book – Zig Zaglar’s See You At The Top. This iconic book transformed me from manager focussed on policies, rules and regulation to a business leader who understand the human side of an enterprise. Mr Zaglar, you have made a difference in my life and that of many who work with me. Thank you.
