Zig Ziglar on Setting Goals

Zig Ziglar’s Goal Setting Keys!

One of my favorite inspirational and motivational speakers is Zig Ziglar. He was very popular back in the 1970’s, 1980’s & 1990’s. I had the pleasure of seeing him back in 1989 at a Get Motivated seminar.

Zig’s Goal Setting Video:

Here is a video of Zig teaching on Goal Setting which should help you in many areas of your life.  He uses the example of How to Lose 37 Pounds and Write a Book.  One of the keys is to break your major goal down into smaller bite-sized, easy to achieve goals.

Here are the keys to goal setting that Zig outlines in this video:

  • Write your goal down
  • Put a date on it
  • List the obstacles that you have to overcome
  • Identify the people, the groups, the organizations that you need to work with
  • Spell out a plan of action
  • Set a time limit
  • Identify all of the benefits that you will have when you reach your goal

So I hope that you enjoy this, and more importantly, that this provides you some nuggets on setting goals.

To your unlimited success,

Attraction Marketing Coach

Great advice here Dale!

If only more people would take responsibility for their reality. All too often they blame others instead of getting serious and committed about their desired outcome.

Thanks for sharing Zig he was awesome!

You have a choice so, make it a better than terrific day!

Terry, great to see that you are a student of Zig too!

He always has such sage advice. And it's good to see that he's still going strong and pressing through at 83 years young, even after the injury that he had some time back. And he even just released a new book in late 2009 called “Embrace the Struggle: Living Life on Life's Terms”.

As Zig says, I'll see you at the top!

I loved this video it really showed the importance of setting goals and applying yourself to achieve those goals, and not to take failure as an excuse for quitting thanks for the inspiration
