What will your last words to those you love be?

Excerpted from my good friend Tom Ziglar’s just released new book “Choose to Win”

What will your last words to those you love be?

I am dedicating this book to Mom and Dad, Jean and Zig Ziglar. They both provided me everything. Their words, actions, and faith in God were always loud and clear and they echo in my heart. They showed me by example how to Choose to Win.

If I could have had anyone write the foreword to this book, it would have been Mom and Dad. And then I realized—they did.

My dad’s last written words to me were, “For my son who I love and am very proud and grateful for. Romans 8:28” Dad was struggling with Alzheimer’s, and you can tell that he struggled to write the sentence—so much so that you can see his heart in the writing.

Mom’s last words to me were in the hospital, forty-eight hours before she passed into eternity. As I was leaving, she motioned for me to come over to her. I leaned over, and she grabbed my neck and whispered in my ear, “I am soooooooo, so proud of you, and I love you sooooooo, so much.”

Mom and Dad left a legacy that will ripple through eternity. It was by design, based on the intentional choices they made.

You can leave a legacy by design as well.

So, I will ask you again—What will your last words be?
