The Classic Pamela Positive: Deal with the Complete Person – Zig Ziglar


“Man is tridimensional (physical, mental, and spiritual). I deal with the complete person. This is the only way to have complete success.”  — Zig Ziglar

We can’t just deal with people from one viewpoint. We all have such important, varied qualities about us.  And that’s changing moment by moment… and needs to be honored moment by moment.  Who the person is holistically, when honored, brings the greatest benefit to your relationship, your environment, your work, your home.


Hilary Hinton “Zig” Ziglar is a motivational speaker, emphasizing Christian values and achieving success in all areas of life.  He is the author of nine books, including See You at the Top and Raising Positive Kids in a Negative World.
