One of my first and favorite books I read under the personal development category years ago, was by Zig Ziglar. The book was titled. “See You at the Top”. That book had a profound impact on me and catapulted me in to a life where I made a decision to be sure I continued to seek motivation out. Although I didn’t include Zig Ziglar quotes on the list. I will say that it was Zig that got me going because of one of his most famous quotes.
People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.–Zig Ziglar
Since first reading that quote, I have now made sure I seek out motivation everyday. Here are some of my favorite thought leaders and authors and some of their quotes that have shaped who I am over the years and who I am becoming.
