About the Author
Drawing on his forty-plus years as a world-class motivational speaker, Zig identifies and shows precisely how to achieve what people want most from life: to be happy, health, reasonably prosperous, secure, to have friends, peace of mind, a firm spiritual foundation, good family, relationships, and most important—hope. As Zig delves into the how and whys of living life with values, character, honesty, integrity, and sensitivity, you learn to be more at peace with yourself, accomplish more with your skills and abilities, and tap into what life is really all about. And as Zig always said, “If you help enough people get what they want, you’ll get what you want. Like the mighty oak tree, our challenge as human beings is to continually regenerate ourselves by deepening our roots and extending our reach.”

I began to follow Zig Ziglar’s career in the earlier 1980s. Ziglar was fast becoming a household name, known for his books and seminars with a life improvement emphasis promoting the energy of change. As I put his principles into practice, my dreams and life goals began to move forward. As I look back over my career, I recognize the impact of Ziegler’s influence on my life. Eighteen months ago, my wife of 62 years passed away. Although I was devastated by the loss, I set a goal for the next year – a goal I did not attain. I wish I had the benefit of Goals – How to Get the Most of Your Life at that point. Today encouraged by Zig’s writing, I am excited about using his Nine Steps to Setting Goals. Today I am setting long-range, ongoing goals in areas of the physical, social, spiritual, and family. I plan to follow his step by step instructions for establishing and reaching goals, maintaining a quality of life, new motivation, and higher energy. I can highly recommend Zig Ziglar’s Goals – How to Get the Most Out of Your Life. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
