Quote du jour

You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.
-Zig Ziglar


  1. Knowing who Ziglar is I would imagine he's referring to working for someone and being rewarded.

    1. Ziglar was big on sales motivation. If you were in sales, he knew you could always get what you want (sales, commissions, etc.) by helping people get what they want. The same works in the service industry, too. If you run a lawn care service, the more you can help people get what they want (short grass, tidy lawns), the more you can get what you want.

      It's kind of a shorthand way of saying if you don't provide people with the goods and services they want, you won't earn as much as you could. Or conversely, do a good job of it and be better compensated.

    1. Very down home and humble, too. From Yazoo City, MS. Before he was a successful motivational speaker, he'd speak of calling on customers in their homes where you could see the dirt under the house, through the holes in the floor. Those folks wanted things, too, and he'd try to help them get them!
