With Gratitude

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States.

I want you to know that I am extremely grateful to you, our Zignificance email readers.

Every day I get words of encouragement from you. When you send a note to me, it makes my day! And when you tell me that the Zignificance emails help you in some small way, it lifts my spirits in a huge way.

The 1% Difference

14 minutes.

14 minutes is 1% of the time in a day.

14 minutes can change everything.

14 minutes has made 2016 an incredible year for Ken Grant, one of our

Ziglar Legacy Certified trainers.

In fact, the leadership at his company asked him his secret and WHY he

was having so much better results than everyone else, even though he

had exactly the same resources.

Attitude, Goals, and Success

A good ATTITUDE will out perform a bad attitude every time. Zig Ziglar

A GOAL properly set is halfway reached. Zig Ziglar

SUCCESS is the journey, not the destination. Zig Ziglar

It seems like SUCCESS depends on your ATTITUDE and the GOALS that you have on your journey through life.

The Best Thanksgiving Day Challenge

I have a challenge for you. The good news is it doesn't cost anything and the rewards are priceless.

Here is the challenge: Write five personal notes and give them to your family, friends, and coworkers this Thanksgiving.

Here is how you do it.

2017 is coming!

It's hard to believe 2017 is almost here!

Christmas shopping is ramping up and retailers are full-speed ahead.

Question: What are you telling yourself about 2017?

Why not create the 2017 you want before it even starts?

2017 is coming.


You were Designed for Accomplishment,
Engineered for Success, and
Endowed with the Seeds of Greatness.

You have within you every quality of success, everything you need to be successful. What you need to do is develop these qualities.

What’s your plan? What are you doing right now to develop these qualities in yourself?

This ELECTION needs a big dose of HOPE

The big election in the U.S. has some people excited, others disappointed, and almost everyone worried about what is going to unfold in the next several years.

What we all need is a big dose of HOPE.

Hope that inspires action that brings out the best in all of us to create a better life for our families and a better world for our neighbors.

Is it dangerous to have too much hope?

I had the honor of speaking to 125 students at Ngee Ann

Polytechnic in Singapore on Friday evening. This event was set up by our Ziglar Legacy Certified trainers Amily Ang and Alex Tham.

What made it special is that it was a Friday night and the attendance was voluntary! The Ziglar message resonates everywhere in the world.

The Wheel of Life

Years ago, Dad adopted what he called The Wheel of Life.

The Wheel of Life has seven spokes, and each spoke a core area of life. Here they are:


In order to achieve balanced success, we need to be successful in each spoke of the Wheel.

How to solve a problem

I am often asked how it is possible to be very positive and realistic at the same time.

The reality is, many people believe that positive thinkers deny there are problems in this world.

Nothing could be further from the truth. There is nothing negative about acknowledging that there is a problem.


On my trip to Papua New Guinea I saw something that made chills run down my spine.

We pulled up to a light at a busy intersection. A young boy came up to our car offering to sell us something. At first, I didn't know what it was; then I realized he was selling peanuts.
