Listen to the MP3 Audio: Zig Ziglar on How to Get What You Want
Introducing speaker: At this time it is my pleasure to introduce to you, your next featured speaker. He hails from Dallas, Texas. He is a man who — we have a Dallas Texas resident here; welcome sir. Two of them, okay.
Your next speaker is a man who not only professes the greatness of individuals but has experienced the concept of greatness. He was number one in a sales force of over 3,000 salespeople. He was also number two in a sales force of over 7,000 salespeople. He’s a man who has worked very hard for the beliefs and convictions he possesses.
I’m delighted to say that he is the author of the very successful and popular book: See You at the Top, which is now in its ninth printing and has sold over 143 thousand copies in its brief existence. I’m also delighted to say that this book and the philosophy behind this book is now being taught to the young people in the schools throughout America in many communities.
Zig Ziglar, ladies and gentlemen, is making an impact – a great man who believes that it’s your aptitude, not just your attitude that always determines your ultimate altitude.
Ladies and gentlemen, would you please join me in welcoming my friend and yours, Mr. Zig Ziglar.
Zig Ziglar – American author, salesman, and motivational speaker
Thank you. Thank you. Just for a moment let’s play a game.
Let’s pretend that your telephone rings tomorrow morning. The voice on the other end says, “John, I’ve got some marvelous news for you. We’ve just won a trip to Acapulco. There’re going to be four of us that can go. They’re only two of us: my wife and myself. We leave at exactly 8:45. We’re going to stay on the beach four days. We will live in a millionaire’s villa. We will have everything at our beck and call. We will live the life of luxury for four full days. Now, remember, John, we leave tomorrow morning at 8:45. My only question is: can you be ready to go at 8:45?”
