Many years ago, a brilliant young visionary stirred audiences by telling them, “You can have everything in life you want — if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
Through the decades, these twenty words have been repeated so often, and by so many people, that they have become elevated to iconic status. They are the battle cry for all those drawn to add great value to their world while living a life of abundance.
They were first spoken, of course, by the legendary Zig Ziglar.
It’s difficult to for me to imagine a single sentence that could serve as a greater example and finer embodiment of the Go-Giver philosophy.
It is equally difficult to imagine a bigger thrill for John and me than having the opportunity to present Mr. Ziglar with the First Annual Go-Giver Lifetime Achievement Award.
Halfway through Zig’s appearance, as he sat between his lovely wife, Jean (“The Redhead”) and his son, Tom (CEO of Ziglar), John came up on stage and together we presented the 83-year-old legend with an engraved crystal bowl … along with our extreme thanks.
Zig Ziglar: a great man, a true Go-Giver!
