What Zig Zigler Taught Us.


Loved and sought-out motivational speaker Zig Zigler passed away yesterday at 86 years old.  Zigler inspired millions of people to be the best that they could be; in life and in business.  He emphasized that you need to employ four lessons into everything that you do and through them you will find success.  You only need to believe in yourself, always be learning, encourage and help others, and try your best.  He noted that to be a success in life everything must be balanced.  You can’t have financial success without a family or vice versa.

At Surefire Social, we have always admired and implemented Zigler’s teachings into our business and will continue to do so.  One of our favorite quotes among many is “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.”  We will miss you Zig, and we thank you for your message.

Zigler’s passing has seen a tremendous outpouring of love and remembrances via social media outlets.  His name was one of the top trended subjects on twitter and Google, as a staggering number of people voiced their respects online.  He will surely be missed by all, and his memory will carry on.
