Zig Ziglar: The man who motivated millions is no more

-Zig Ziglar, American author, salesperson and motivational speaker has passed away on 28th Nov, 2012 at a hospital located in Plano, Dallas at age 86. His motivational seminars were called “Born to Win” and “Success Rallies” and as much as 25 self help books were penned by the author. According to Ziglar’s executive assistant Laurie Magers, he was suffering from pneumonia.

-The Washington Post has drawn a beautiful allegory to describe what constitutes the Zig Ziglar’s persona by equating his morning alarm to “Opportunity clock” and how “your wood is wet” if “you don’t have that fire” when you reach work.
