In Honor and Celebration of Zig Ziglar – Who Encouraged Millions!

Do you find that whenever you attend a memorial service and reflect on the fact that your life here on earth will also one day come to an end, that “What’s really important?” becomes crystal clear?

On Saturday as I sat at Zig’s memorial service and read the quotes below from Zig’s book Over the Top (that were included in the program for the Celebration of his life) I began to reverse the words to make each quote a question.  “You have” became “Have you?”  “You are” became “Are You?” It was a great opportunity to reflect on “What’s really important?”

As you read through the great quotes from Zig below, reflect on “What’s really important?” for you. (and as Zig always encouraged everyone to do:  “Write it down!”)
