Zig Ziglar: Defining Success By: Erin K. Casey-Part #2

Here is a great article I found about Zig Ziglar. Written by: Erin K. Casey in Success Magazine! This is part #2 of the article. 

Live a Balanced, Focused Life 

Success is never about acquiring what you want in one area of life, but in every area of life. Reminiscent of I Corinthians 13, Ziglar asks audiences to consider the fallacy of one-sided success. Take a moment and ask yourself these questions: 

+ If I earn millions of dollars, but destroy my health in the process, is that success? 

+ If I become the best in my industry, but neglect my family and friends, is that success? 

+ If I acquire great wealth and notoriety, but compromise my integrity and faith to do so, is that success? 

The obvious answer to each of these questions is “no.” Success isn’t one-sided. Our achievements aren’t fulfilling when we neglect or destroy our relationships, health or faith. 

Through the years, Ziglar’s axiom has been, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” But what exactly do people want? What do you want? Getting clear about your goals and desires, after all, is the first step to achieving them. 

Ziglar says there are eight basic things people want to feel successful. “People want to be happy, healthy, reasonably prosperous and secure; they want to have friends, peace of mind, good family relationships and hope,” he says. With a focused goal to continually improve in each of these areas, we can enjoy life to the fullest. 

“You are here for a reason. That purpose is to get everything out of you that is humanly possible so you can make your contributions to mankind,” Ziglar writes in See You at the Top. “Goals enable you to do more for yourself and others, too.” He also notes that goals must be specific. “You’ll never make it as a ‘wandering generality.’ You must become a ‘meaningful specific.’ 

Goals give us a target and bring meaning to our mission. Without goals, life simply happens. But when we have a target, we can move with purpose, helping us achieve more. “People often complain about lack of time, when lack of direction is the real problem,” Ziglar says. “Time can be an ally or an enemy. What it becomes depends entirely upon you, your goals and your determination to use every available minute.”
