Stubborn and hardheaded me! For years, even as I was hearing so many great things about Zig Ziglar and his great messages, speeches, news, books and audio cassettes and CDs, I had always avoided Zig and all his famous material.
Needless to say, I've never bought a thing that had anything Zig Ziglar related. I felt that I can do it all without learning from him. Well, I was wrong; deeply wrong.
Zig Ziglar, was a wonderful person, no air of importance, a very humble and gentle person to talk with. I met Zig face to face, by faith and by chance, yes, I met him as he called out my name in the audience. I told him that I've been avoiding him all my life. He laughed, and so did I.
Here, I collected the memories online and my story of "How I Met Zig Ziglar, the Great Person that I've Avoided All My Life" on this site, as a memoir that I dedicate to Zig Ziglar.
