Zig Ziglar’s Greatest Accomplishment
This question came in from a Success 2.0 Webcast
“Being a student of Tor Dahl in Minnesota, he speaks very highly of the way your dad has changed the world. What would you say has been your dad’s greatest accomplishment? Also, does he believe in giving back or paying it forward? What would he say about that?” Dwayne
Dwayne, Dad’s core philosophy, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want,” is very close to the “pay it forward” or “giving back” concept. I believe Dad’s greatest accomplishment is his gift of encouragement and hope. Dad has the ability to help others “see” what they can become. This encouragement creates hope, and when this happens people take action and try out what Dad says. By taking action, they get results, and then they try something else, which gets even more results.
Dad’s greatest accomplishment is simple – it is really the sum of other people’s accomplishments that he had a small part in inspiring.
