Classic Zig Ziglar

Saying Zig Ziglar was a motivational speaker, is like saying Mt. Everest is a hill.

Joe Nuckols introduces Zig Ziglar at Motivation Monday

Zig Ziglar has influenced millions worldwide and his books, audios, videos, speeches, and ideas will continue to inspire more in the coming decades.

Quotes from Zig Ziglar have been woven into novels, plays, movies, television, and all across social media. He had a special style. The first time I saw him speak was in 1979, and his work inspired my career and the creation of the world’s first all motivation radio station, the Winners News Network. Zig was kind enough to visit one of our Motivation Monday events in South Florida.

This recording was made to explain how he inspired the idea and some of his classic presentation.

Zig Ziglar lived a life of great example as he always lived by his own words. He invited me, “Joe, if you are ever in Dallas on a Sunday drop by my Sunday school class.”

“You teach Sunday school?” I asked.

The thought of my days as a kid on Sunday mornings in a small room with a dozen or people came to mind. So, I asked, “How many people are in your class?”

“Oh,” he answered modestly, “Seven or eight hundred or so depending on the weather.”

That was an invitation I had to accept, so one Sunday at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas, I showed up. That day it was a pleasure to meet his young son, Tom. The son mentioned in the video. He’s a grown man now and is head of the Zig Ziglar Corporation continuing his Dad’s work. As Zig said in the video, young Tom said, “Dad, I always pull for you.”
