Other quotes by Zig Ziglar

Sometimes adversity is what you need to face in order to become successful.

If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.

I've always taught that a poor economy is the best opportunity for salespeople because the naysayers and grumblers have already given up, leaving more territory, more opportunities to be successful than in a good economy when virtually all salespeople are out there, giving it their best.
