20 Leadership Lessons from the Book Better Than Good by Zig Ziglar

Posted on Posted in Life Coaching, Personal Growth, Quotable Quotes

 

Do you desire that your life is filled with passion, peak performance and purpose? Nothing makes a great life than a deliberate decision that rejects settling for the minimum .

In this life changing book, Zig Ziglar of a blessed memory shared that “good” was not an apt description of how any of us ought to be doing. “If we are going to live life to the fullest” says Zig Ziglar, “We ought to be doing “better than good.”

I like to share few leadership lessons from this book. You can get your own copy of “Better than Good” here.

Here are 20 Leadership lessons I learned from Better Than Good.

  1. “Finding and developing passion is a journey, not an event. There is a process you must follow; some find it early while some discover it much later.”
  2. “Different things motivate different people, but inspiration is critical if we are going to discover what we are passionate about.”
  3. “The only way to move from a place of mere survival to stability, and from stability to success, and from success to significance, is to engage in a God-inspired field of endeavour that will enable you to bring significant benefits to others.”
  4. “Passion is a flame that has to be fed in order to keep it burning bright. And inspiration is the fuel that keeps the fire alive.”
  5. “Passion will die without constant injections of new inspiration.”
  6. “There is no better way to stay inspired than by spending time in the presence of inspirational people.”
  7. “Sometimes we have to get up and get involved in order to find inspiration and keep passion alive.”
  8. “The power of the imagination is one of the greatest untapped resources “in the human toolkit.”
  9. “There is one sure way in life I know of never to reach your peak performance, and that is never to start.” 20 Leadership Lessons from the Book Better than Good by Zig Ziglar
  10. “Always welcome failure as part of your education.”
  11. “When you make your plans, plan on discouragements and failures and obstacles, for you will have them. At the same time, plan on not giving up.”
  12. “If you aren’t willing to fight for your plan from start to finish, there is reason to wonder if it ever should have been launched.”
  13. “In the achieving of your goals, it’s not what others believe you can do, it’s what you believe you can do.”
  14. “You plus God equals more than enough to accomplish your goals.”
  15. “Success does breed success. It increases our confidence, and keeps the fire burning.”
  16. “Those who pursue God’s will for their lives don’t always get everything they want, but they want most of what they get.”
  17. “Get outside the box on your quest – only there will you likely find the creative ideas you need for the breakthrough you are seeking.”
  18. “Life is governed by immutable laws of God that will grant success to everyone who applies” himself or herself.
  19. “We cannot see into the future, but we can have faith that the acts God calls us to accomplish are significant and meaningful and need to be carried out.”
  20. “The most dramatic impact you can have on your future is by beginning, or renewing, if need be, a vibrant relationship with the God who created you and loves you.”
