Truly a great man. I have been to several of his motivational events over the years and never tired of listening -- AND LEARNING. What a talent.

I have never heard of this person before, but considering he loved the Lord, I don't think we should be grieving for him but for the family and friends he left behind. He's in a GREAT place right now!

I had not seen this piece of news. I knew he was getting frail but it's hard to imagine his indomitable spirit weakening. RIP.

he was a wonderful man who helped many people. I attended his Sunday School class a few times when visiting my friend in Dallas.

some of my favorite Zig quotes:
+You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.
+If you treat your wife like a thoroughbred, you'll never end up with a nag.
+Nobody can get your goat if they don't know where it's tied.
+People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.
+Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

he wrote some great books. Staying Up, Up, Up in a Down, Down World is a really good daily motivational book. Confessions of a Grieving Christian is an excellent gift for a parent who has lost a child (Zig wrote it when his daughter died).

The most handicapped person in the world is a negative thinker; a person who has the skills, abilities, talents and tools, yet chooses not to use them.
