The Definition of Success

Zig Ziglar was an iconic expert on complete and balanced success, and in Born to Win! Find Your Success Code, his last book before his passing, he shares his winning philosophy—that you have to plan and prepare to win in order to succeed—and the strategies to go with it.

In this excerpt, he shares a short list of the characteristics that he believes constitute success:

What Success Is:

1. Success is knowing that you did a great job when you close the door to your office at the end of each workday and head for home.

2. Success is having a home and people to love who love you in return.

3. Success is having the financial security to meet your obligations each month and the knowledge that you have provided that security for your family in the event of your demise.

4. Success is having the kind of faith that lets you know where to turn when there seems to be no place to turn.
