You can have everything in life you want - Zig Ziglar quote

As you have probably heard, Zig Ziglar passed away yesterday at age 86. Although he is gone, his memory will live on in the lessons that he has taught to the millions that have been influenced by him. In honor of Zig Ziglar, here is a collection of my  favorite quotes from him:

“Building a better you is the first step to building a better America”

“Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.”

“It’s not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life; it is how you handle what happens to you.”

“Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.”

“Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly until you learn to do it well.”

“If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.”

“Ability can take you the top, but it takes character to keep you there.”

“There has never been a statue erected to honor a critic.”

“Money won’t make you happy… but everybody wants to find out for themselves.”

“The best way to make your spouse and children feel secure is not with big deposits in bank account, but with little deposits of thoughtfulness and affection in the love account.”

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”

“People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.”

“A goal properly set is halfway reached.”

“Go as far as you can see. When you get there, you’ll be able to see farther.”

“Money will buy you a bed, but not a good night’s sleep, a house but not a home, a companion but not a friend.”

“Remember that failure is an event, not a person.”

“When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, you do not change your decision to get there. “

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want”
