Never heard of “stinking thinking”... Is that something someone does when sitting on the toilet??

Dang, hate hear but I know he is headed for a much better place.

My fav quote of his, "If I had know grandkids were going to be so much fun, I would have been nicer to their parents!"

Thanks for posting.

At least he wasn’t eating a steady diet of government cheese and living in a van DOWN BY THE RIVER!

Ah yes. Listening to the Nightengale-Conant promos on airlines in the 80's.

Ziglar had one of those booming voices.

yes... Zig Ziglar and Ken Blanchard were two of the top motivational speakers when i worked in Human Resource Development back in the 80s and 90s... got to see Ken Blanchard at Stanford... i liked so much how their spiritual beliefs engrained their presentations...

Met him, and attended one of his seminars back in 1972. An unforgettable guy!

A great man is one who spends his life encouraging others to do their best.

It is really sad, what a great speaker.

That pump,

Rush or Glenn Beck should try to obtain that RED pump.

Silly as it may sound, this guy changed my entire outlook on life back in the early 80's when a social studies teacher outright forced us to listen to his recordings in class.

I'm not and never have been a salesman, but his views on commanding your own mind and attitude really sunk in with me... even at 16 years old, and I learned to apply it to everyday life. It was all so simple.

I consider myself relatively successful today as a direct result of his teachings and that teacher in high school who forced me to sit and listen to him.

Very sad to hear... I went to a week-long class of his during high school (ICAN)...

Was a great individual...

May he R.I.P.

The re-election of FUBO probably made him sick to death.

What is it about Yazoo City? Zig Ziglar, Haley Barbour, Jerry Clower, Willie Morris — all virtuosos of the English language. Must be something in the water!

When Zig was invited to preach from time-to-time...

He would hold up the Bible and stare at the Book for a moment....
Then look the congregation in the eyes and say with a smile...

"I believe God's Word from Genesis to the maps"

RIP Zig Ziglar....
...and God's comfort to this kind man's family...
