I'd like to share Zig's introduction that offers his thoughts as to why he wanted to create Inspiration 365 Days A Year w/free Dvd.
Reading has been the fuel of my motivation, it has changed the direction in which I have traveled, and it has enhanced my creative imagination more than any other activity I have ever pursued. I'm now in my eighth decade of living and I still read several hours a day. Why? When I can hook up old information with new information, the combination of the two creates perspectives that could never have been achieved otherwise. New information makes new and fresh ideas possible.
I read for the "ah-ha's," the information that makes a light bulb go off in my mind. I want to put information in my mind that is going to be the most beneficial to me, my family and my fellow man, financially, morally, spiritually, and emotionally. I seldom read anything that is not of a factual nature because I want to invest my time wisely in the things that will improve my life. Don't misunderstand; there is nothing wrong with reading purely for the joy of it. Novels have their place, but biographies of famous men and women contain information that can change lives. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's,The Power of Positive Thinking, changed my thinking. The Bible changed my believing. Ultimately, what I have read has changed my being.
If the "ah-ha" I get when I'm reading is not already reduced into one or two sentences, I'll take the essence of what I've read and chunk it into easily remembered bites of information. That information is what becomes "quotable." You would not sit still for me to read every book I've ever read to you. But if you're the least bit like me, you'll jump at the chance to bypass all the churning and scoop the cream right off the top—that is what quotes are...the cream of our learning.
The right quote can inspire people to change their ways. I love to quote my mother, "Tell the truth and tell it ever, costeth what it will; for he who hides the wrong he did, does the wrong thing still." Of course this quote didn't begin with my mother, but she is the first person who said it to me. Quotes, good quotes, are like that—you remember who said it, what the circumstances were, and that it had an immediate impact on your thinking.
I've compiled the quotes in this book with great care. I've included quotes that will help you on the work front, the home front, and the spiritual front. There are quotes to lift you up and quotes to bring you back to earth. Some will make you smile and some will create more questions than you might care to think about. All of them will make you think and that is an exercise in your present that will enhance and improve your future immensely.
It is my hope that you "get" the "ah-ha's" I got when I first read or wrote the quotes I've selected for this inspirational book.
If you apply what you learn to your life, I can honestly say that I will See You at the Top! Zig Ziglar

The Strangest Secret
Why do people with goals succeed in life and people without them fail?
Why do we become what we think about?
The answer to those questions can completely alter your life. In fact, I remember exactly when I first heard the secrets of success in Earl Nightingale's classic, The Strangest Secret.
It was in 1964 and the powerful message that Earl shared was one of the turning points of my life.
Today, I'd like to share an excerpt from The Strangest Secret.
An excerpt from
The Strangest Secret
by Earl Nightingale
George Bernard Shaw said, "People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."
Well, it's pretty apparent, isn't it? And every person who discovered this believed (for a while) that he was the first one to work it out. We become what we think about.
Now, it stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that's what he's thinking about. And we become what we think about.
Conversely, the person who has no goal, who doesn't know where he's going, and whose thoughts must therefore be thoughts of confusion, anxiety, fear and worry — his life becomes one of frustration, fear, anxiety and worry. And if he thinks about nothing...he becomes nothing.
How does it work? Why do we become what we think about? Well, I'll tell you how it works, as far as we know. To do this, I want to tell you about a situation that parallels the human mind.
Suppose a farmer has some land, and it's good, fertile land. The land gives the farmer a choice; he may plant in that land whatever he chooses. The land doesn't care. It's up to the farmer to make a decision.
We're comparing the human mind with the land because the mind, like the land, doesn't care what you plant in it. It will return what you plant, but it doesn't care what you plant.
Now, let's say that the farmer has two seeds in his hand — one is a seed of corn, the other is nightshade, a deadly poison. He digs two little holes in the earth and he plants both seeds — one corn, the other nightshade. He covers up the holes, waters and takes care of the land...and what will happen? Invariably, the land will return what was planted. As it's written in the Bible,
"As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
Remember, the land doesn't care. It will return poison in just as wonderful abundance as it will corn. So up come the plants — one corn, one poison. The human mind is far more fertile, far more incredible and mysterious than the land, but it works the same way. It doesn't care what we plant...success...or failure. A concrete, worthwhile goal...or confusion, misunderstanding, fear, anxiety, and so on. But what we plant it must return to us.
You see, the human mind is the last great, unexplored continent on earth. It contains riches beyond our wildest dreams. It will return anything we want to plant.
Written in 1957, the audio recording of The Strangest Secret earned the first Gold Record for the spoken word, with sales exceeding one million copies. As you can see, Earl's message is even more relevant today. I invite you to learn more about how the insights of The Strangest Secret can change your life, as it changed mine.
Today, we're pleased to offer The Strangest Secret
