Zig Ziglar

The mission of the Zig Ziglar Foundation is to inspire people to take action that will reinforce the American spirit and lead to a spontaneous national culture of faith, hope, perseverance, individual excellence, achievement, and success. 

The Zig Ziglar Foundation

Zig Ziglar is considered to be one of the greatest motivators, teachers and success mentors in history. His message of encouragement made a positive difference in millions of lives around the world. Zig Ziglar passed away on November 28, 2012 and The Zig Ziglar Foundation was formed to extend his legacy of encouragement to current and future generations.

Will you join us in our effort?

The Ziglar Way

We are creating a global network for people who want to be difference makers in their homes, businesses, churches and communities. The Ziglar Way is a 10 Step process that when followed always produces a richer, more fulfilling life. The Ziglar Way is based on the teachings of legendary motivator Zig Ziglar. Those who join The Ziglar Way have access to the member resource section of this website, which include self-help tools, videos, a member discussion forum, an international directory of other members and much more. People become a part of the Ziglar Way in one of two ways:
Charter a Ziglar Inspiration Group, or
Directly join The Ziglar Way as an individual member

Zig Ziglar said, “The first step in building a better America (and world) is to build a better YOU!” If you are looking for a way to make a difference, The Ziglar Way is for you.

Aiming to keep the spirit of Zig Ziglar alive in today’s culture, the Ziglar Foundation encourages people join a global network of Difference Makers who adhere to a methodology described as The Ziglar Way.

When the iconic motivational speaker Zig Ziglar passed away on November 28, 2012, many people questioned how his legacy of encouragement and faith would live on for current and future generations. The Zig Ziglar Foundation, a non-profit organization, was formed in February 2013 as an answer that question.

  1. The Ziglar Foundation has identified 10 negative trends that have impacted American culture for the past 50 years: 
  2. A culture of selfishness and fame seeking 
  3. The absence of guiding principles to help people manage their lives and families 
  4. The unwillingness to think critically 
  5. General ignorance of American history and its founding principle 
  6. A floundering education system that is no longer competitive 
  7. Families without either a father or a mother in the home and sometimes both 
  8. A culture of misinformation about what is the state of the current culture 
  9. General ignorance about God, faith, and the Bible 
  10. The inability to sustain resolve for extended periods of time 
  11. A national void of ethical leadership 

These trends have evolved over the past 50 years and are growing each day. The Ziglar Foundation believes these trends lead to a lack of faith in God, a lack of honesty, to poverty and to crime. The Zig Ziglar Foundation has no political agenda and will not endorse candidates or take official positions on political issues.

The Foundation urges people who want to help reverse these trends and become difference makers to step up and get involved.
