The only reason I gave this 4 stars vs the deserved 5 is because this seems to be a mixer of stuff I've heard before from the speaker / author but just repackaged combination of his previous speaking presentations, free podcasts and how to stay motivated volumes

But no doubt these are fantastic lectures by my all time favourite author Zig - such a shame this amazing man has left this world - May God bless his soul as he has most likely impacted thousands of not millions positively with his work a

This new book, “Developing the Qualities of Success: How to Stay Motivated volume 1” by Zig Ziglar is classic Zig, and those who enjoy his motivating messages will enjoy this read. This book takes the late Zig Ziglar's lessons and packages them into a convenient read that is both uplifting and motivating. As Zig used to say (and it repeated in this book) motivation wears off just like bathing, so he recommends both daily. This is a great little book to inspire you.

The book is full of examples an

Zig Ziglar's books are a blast to listen to. Ziglar recorded a majority of his audio books in front of live audiences, and it makes his books stand out and memorable. He is a very passionate and good speaker. His words and stories paint pictures and his vocal variety makes it easy to picture him up there on stage.
With that said, he has a really good message that is practical and fun to listen too. He teaches you things that you can start doing today to improve your life, he then does it with gr

I am pretty sure I've listened to at least half of this in the car and I have to say it's pretty good. I expect to go through the audio many more times in the future.

I was surprised that this book was newly published because I assumed Ziglar was already deceased; nevertheless, I selected the book to read since I had always wondered about his brand of motivational speaking and writing and wanted to know more about it. It turns out that the Ziglar organization is still thriving and offering books, MP3's, CD's, DVD's, coaching and corporate training in the Ziglar-tested methods of attaining success and forging a life-long positive attitude.

There was definitely

this book is amazing. It (and everything I've read from Zig) is a fully guilty pleasure. The kind of thing that you don't want to admit to liking but secretly in the Automobile University its amazing. It boils all the lessons and wisdom of how to live a good and happy life down into simple story's, parables and procedures.

Zig is the perfect combination of stand up comedian, baptist minister, and humble grandfather being able to deliver all these messages.

And, he is old school. And I mean OLD s

This book should be title how to be happy in life. Much of the book and audio CD dwells on this few things:
Yesterday is truly over.
Moral values, faith, hope, love and integrity is important.
You have to believe in God.
Zig differs and he says this, that he's not a New Age philosopher. We can't do everything. It's God who works while we have hope. Through the trials of his own life he has stayed on the path of belief and I find that the examples from his own life make it very believable. I loved

Zig Ziglar ha sido consistente en mostrar valores éticos y Morales a través de sus libros. Lo hizo con SECRETS ON CLOSING THE SALES y lo ha hecho también con éste libro DEVELOPING THE QUALITIES OF SUCCESS. Él parte de la premisa de que para tener hay, primeramente, que hacer y que para hacer es necesario, antes que todo, ser. Lo recomiendo a todo aquel o aquella que quiera incursionar exitosamente en el campo de las ventas.
Aslan Umarov
As Seth Godin said, Zig Ziglars main idea, around which he built up his career is something like the following:

"You are able to achieve your goals as much as you help others to achieve theirs."

It is hard to disagree with that kind of attitude. I fully agree and recommend this book for anyone interested in self-development

Зиг Зиглер дает крутые советы. не могу сказать что это лучшее, на мой вкус чтиво, на тему, но если вы ищите такой материал, то здесь вы не ошибетесь.

в условиях стабильной, растущей экономики this is the way you go.
