Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker and author
The nation mourns one of the most positive and inspirational men of our time. Zig Ziglar passed away from pneumonia last week, he was 86 years old. He has coached millions of people through tough times and disappointments, from weak minds to strong personalities. He reached out and taught us to believe in ourselves and also to believe in a wonderful God. Though he was a Christian his words transcended religion and encompassed all people with his conviction, love and honesty.
His life was not perfect and was filled with ups and downs like everyone else, sometimes more than others, and he faced it all with steadfast resilience and focus. May we all learn from his example and continue to evolve into better people through his leadership.
Building a better you is the first step in building a better America.
