" أراك على القمة "
من أروع كتب التحفيز والإلهام التي قرأتها , جماله في الابتعاد عن طريقة السرد المحاضراتية ومحاولة تمثيلها بطريقة قصصية مع التعليق عليها وتوضيح ما يلزم علمياً ونفسياً

القمة رسم الوصول إليها من خلال عبور سلالم متتالية يمكن تلخيصها في :
~ رسم صورة ذات صحية جيدة
~ تقدير قيمة وقدرة الأشخاص الآخرين
~الجدية في الوصول للهدف
~الاستعداد للعمل
~العمل بجدية

الكاتب يزرع فكرة أن المهارة في أي مجال يمكن اكتسابها من خلال التدريب , أي أن الفطرة ليست كل شيء , يلزم أن يكون المرء مؤمناً بقواه وقدرات

I grew up on Ziglar, and I like to dip back into his work from time to time. It's been years since I read SYATT, and it seemed a good starting book for my new goal of reading at least 30 min of personal development books each day.

The book is structured like a staircase, with the idea that if you build on the foundations of each step before moving to the next one, then you will eventually make it to the Top and find success. The early steps are about self-image and attitude and goal setting. Thi

I've been disappointed in the past by books labeled as "Business Classics" ("Think and Grow Rich" comes to mind), but "See You At The Top" definitely deserves this moniker. Ziglar provides a realistic and sustainable framework on how to achieve success. His model of focusing on self-image, relationships, goals, attitude, work and desire (and how to improve each) allow you to focus on what is most important. His chapters on goal-setting are some of the best I've read on the topic. My only complai ...more

I found Zig Zigar's 'See you at the top' to be a most pleasurable read. The book is well written and easy to digest. Zig conveys his lessons in the form of short stories and personal experiences, all of which are easy to relate to and easy to identify with. The book is a good motivation read. If you want to make a change in you're life or just looking for that little inspiration, this book will provide it. As an overview the book concentrates on building `YOU', by looking at self-image, relation ...more

My learnings:
(1) Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is.
(2) You can get everything you want in life, if you can help enough people get what they want in life.
(3) Just like a balloon of any color would rise in the air, it is always what is inside you that will make you rise.
(4) The difference between the big shot and the little shot is that the little shot, when it kept on shooting, became a big shot
(5) It is not who is right that's important. What is important is what is right

من الكتب الرائعة التي أرغب بإعادة قرائتها أكثر من مرة..علمي يخاطب الإحساس والفكر والروح بأسلوب شيق وممتع وجاذب لترسيخ العقل في محتوياته والنهل منها لما فيه من بوادر النجاح التي تلوح أكيدة في كل صوب..الفشل بداية ليس إلا.. ليس نتيجة نهائية للوقوف ..عمق هذا الكتاب يجعل الشخص يتعمق أيضاً روحاً وفكراً ويجد ماهو داخله أمام عينيه...فيه من الجمل ماتأخذ حقها في التفكير كنت أقرأوه وبرفقتي قلم ودفتر ..)إذا لم تبدأ فإنك من المؤكد لن تصل)..

كتاب جيد الى حد ما ولكنه لا يقدم جديد فى مجال التنمية البشرية فقط اسعى وكن حائزا للاصرار وسوف تصل بدون تداريب عملية قيمة
مجموعة من المبادئ ثم مجموعة من القصص بينها مجموعة من ال " لابد " ثم دائما الخطأ موجود فى عقلك انت وليس فى اى ظروف وهذا قد يكون صحيحيا ولكن لا يقدم طريقة عملية اكثر من مجموعة من القصص للنحفيز والاقناع العقلى دون عملى حقيقى
الكتاب قديم الى حد ما فى بدايات التنمية البشرية مثله مثل كتب ديل كارنينجى التى كانت تعد فى وقتها فتحا ورؤية جديدة حتى ظهور البرمجة اللغوية العصبية منذ وقت قص

Uplifting PMA-type book from one of the masters of positive mental attitude pick-me-ups. Worth reading if you are into sales, or just want to see what all the hype is about. Many years ago, I had the opportunity to listen to Ziglar in person when I spent a short-lived half-summer selling books door to door. It was interesting watching a hundred or more newly hired salespeople grow in excitement as they were pumped up by Ziglar's session. Myself, I couldn't get into it, and found myself getting m ...more

wonderful book everybody has to either read it or even here it from youtube which will be better cause they will here directly from Zig Ziglar himself.
a lot of our attitude should be changed and that wouldn't happen unless we recognize those attitude. we should change them cause they affect out life and our feeling without Awareness.

I always enjoy listening to and reading Zig Ziglar. He is so encouraging and learned how to turn a phrase and emphasize his points very well. Much like his other works, this book challenged me to think I could achieve more and reminded me of the power of positive thinking and self-talking.

نوعين من الكتب بقيت بخاف منهم الكتب الدينية الحديثة
و التنمية البشرية
مشكلة التنمية البشرية انني قرأت عدة كتب ووجدت التكرار
نفس الكلام لكن بإطنابات مختلفة الحلو في هذا الكتاب
انه بمباديء جديدة حتى لو منها غريب نوعا ما
الحلو في مبدأ التصرف يصبح عادة بعد 21 ويوم
الجيد ايضا انه ينتقد المجتمع الامريكي في اشياء نحن قلدناها
و هذا قمة الحزن ..لاحظت النزعة الدينية في كتابته و هذا لم اجده
كثيرا من ابناء بلده عادة و تمسكه بالكنيسة و التي يمكن
ان تتشابه مع المجتمع العربي ككل

حسناً الكتاب جيد نسبياً على مستوى التنمية الذاتية، فصل صورة الذات جميل وكذلك الأهداف.

* أزعجني أمر صغير بأنه لا يخلوا من أدلجة دينية مسيحية بالأساس وإسلامية بالترجمة بخاصة في الفصل الثاني حيث يروج لخضوع المرأة بشكل أو بآخر وبتكرار مزعج ، والأدهى استخدامه لنظرية بأن الزوجة سبب في سوء خلق زوجها ، نجمة كامله أزحتها عن الكتاب لهذا السبب فهو غير مؤهل للخوض بالعلاقات رغم محاولته كما أرى، يجب ألا يحاول الكاتب فرض فلسفة دينية معينة بكتاب تنمية بشرية/نفسية لأن الغرض من هذه الكتب بالأساس ضحد المعتقدات المش

From Seth Godin in his top 3 business books of all time:

The Tom Peters Seminar. Tom has created so much of value, and I have trouble picking. But it's either this or the Wow book.

See You at the Top. Zig Ziglar's opus, still the most focused and personal motivational book ever.

The Places That Scare You. Please don't tell me that Pema Chodron's work doesn't qualify as a business book. For me, what I do all day is my life, and what I do all day is business. I

Much of this material is familiar to me. Nevertheless, I think that Zig is a great teacher to return and explore his ideas. Some materials feel out of date, although the edition I am reading has been brought up to date for the era of connected communication. I have read See You at the Top before, and believe this is a great time to deepen my understanding of his message. Success is often found in the fundamentals, and clearly ZZ is a master of success and sales. I have much to learn from his met ...more

This book will never be out dated. The ideas, philosophies, and metaphors will stay with you for life and can be applied anywhere. Zig is real, down to earth, and offers no excuses and doesn't allow you to offer them to achieve the successes that life has to offer. The book builds, helping the reader to better different areas of their life one at a time, ultimately building to the whole person. This book is never done, because you can always pick it right back up at anytime and start again. For ...more

الكتاب تناول فلسفة الكاتب زيج زيجلار في أننا يمكن أن نسرع من فهمنا للحياة بالإطلاع على تجارب الآخرين والاستفادة منها وتطبيقها في حياتنا، وهذا هو الهدف الرئيسي لكتابته، وضحا الكاتب من خلال الطريق الازمة اتباعها ليصعد الناس إلى القمة، فقد قسم الكتاب إلى فصول التي تعتبر درجات السلم التي ينبغي صعودها وهي :(صورة ذاتك، علاقتك مع الآخرين،تحديد الأهداف، الموقف الذهني السليم، العمل، الرغبة) مستشهدا بالعديد من قصص النجاح في كل فصل.
الكتاب جيد لمن أراد تطوير ذاته

See You At the Top was a disappointing read. I chose it because of Zig Ziglar and who he is. Knowing his history, I felt that my reading would be incomplete if I didn't add this book to my list. However, I found it hard to read and keep reading. Much of the material is dated and at times, narrow-minded. Zig Ziglar is an exhilarating speaker. If you are interested, listen to him speak...just leave this book unread.

this book is a manifesto of the Self-Develop genre. it consists of seven chapters discussing the way to the top performance, self-esteem, public relationships, goals, mental order, work and desire. it is full of stories that will be hanged on a special wall deep inside your mind. I bet I'll remember a lot of "How things work" throughout my entire life. Surely Ziglar belongs to those writers who make you feel like your are fortunate enough to read their books, as you are not just reading an ordin ...more

I enjoyed Zig's book very much even when I wish it had been updated to current events and stories. Most of the stories and principles are timeless, but I kept longing for some current stories and especially the last chapter.
The basics are all there in that one does not get to success on the elevator but rather steps, which he clearly describes.
A worthy read!

This is a great book and has some old cliches that ironically still hold true. A classic self help book. Zig Ziglar is an icon and is still doing motivational seminars as of this writing...July 2007. TAcoma, Seattle: July 2007 Get Motivated seminar. Especially good information can be found in chaptor 4... 15 steps to a healthier self image.
