How to be A Winner – Zig Ziglar

Share This
We all want to be a winner but are we practicing the habits to become one?  I picked this audiobook “How to be A Winner” from Zig Ziglar from Ang Mo Kio library to explore and build winning habits everyday.  I liked audiobook which not more than 3 CDs. Especially love the one which only has 1 CD and this audiobook only has 1 CD. Great short listening which can be completed in one go.  You can find the audiobook in AV section call number AV 158.1 ZIG

Zig gives 8 steps to become a winner.

1. Don’t judge the day by the weather.
2. Look for good both in people and situations.
3. Greet people with enthusiast.
4. Establish the symbols.
5. Care for your health.
6. Feed your mind.
7. Find quiet time for yourself.
8. Spend time with your love ones.

If you noticed that steps 1 to 3 start with our attitude, how we start our day with enthusiasm, then have a positive mind set about the people we interact and situations we face. It is a challenge to always finding the bright side in every situation, especially when things are down and not going the way we want them to be.  Zig gives this great tips (which not really something new to me, but it is always good to feed our mind with positive things right? good reminder) on what we need to do, the challenge is to take the lessons from the audiobook and start practicing them.

I picked these two lesson and promise to consistently do them for 21 consecutive days and beyond:
  1. Look for good in every person and situation.
  2. Greet people enthusiastically.

For those whose want to know the overview of the audiobook (also for me to review the lessons in future time), here is a mind map I created.

And here are my favorites quotations from the audiobook:
  1. “You can alter your life by altering your attitude.”
  2. “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re generally right.”
  3. “Success is measured by how you do compared to what you could have done with the abilities you have.”
  4. “You can have everything in life you want if you just help enough other people get their wants.”
  5. “Positive thinking won’t let you do anything, but it will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.”
