Hope

I just finished editing a portion of my Dad’s next book, “Born to Win.”  I was working on the chapter about hope and I couldn’t quit thinking about a garment I am about to purchase.  It’s called Body Magic.  If that name doesn’t inspire you, you’re probably not fifty-five years old like I am.

A Sense of Humor

My father, Zig Ziglar, has always had an incredible sense of humor.  He loves playing harmless pranks on his family and even though we all know that, he occasionally slips one by us.  That he slipped one by me for almost 50 years is a record, though!  I recently learned from my sister Cindy that […]

Living Down To Expectations

People really do live up to your expectations.  In some cases they even live down to your expectations.  And if you don’t have any expectations of them they can meet those, too.  I happen to know that truth because one of my elementary school teachers told my parents not to expect too much out of […]

The Turtle Pen

My father, Zig Ziglar, likes to say he’s had a mechanical by-pass…if a project requires tools he believes himself to be beyond teaching and beyond help. I watched him struggle more than one Christmas eve to put toys together for my little brother Tom, who is almost 10-years my junior. I tend to agree with […]

Skeeter, Scatter and Scooter, the Three Scared Mosquitoes from Schenectady

My mother, the woman my father call the Redhead, taught all of her children to call out for their father if they got scared in the middle of the night. She would tuck us into bed and give us a hug and a good-night kiss and then begin her nightly speech, “Now,” she’d say, “If […]
