This is one of my favorite Zig Ziglar quotes of all time. It may not be the most profound or Earth-shattering, but it is fun and true for a lot of people. The first time I heard it it definitely caught me, and I've been saying it ever since!
I've included the quote below how it is written in Ziglar's book See You At The Top. Zig uses the saying in a lot of his speeches and audio books, so you may have heard it a little different. It packs a punch either way!

Not once has the Redhead ever had to change outfits because what she was wearing would not go with what I was carrying.
Occasionally I will hear someone truthfully say they really do not want to earn large sums of money (ministers, teachers, social workers, etc.) but, generally speaking, any person who says this will lie to you about other things too."
With that said, it's all part of the important idea that money is an idea, and wealth consciousness is something that comes BEFORE wealth.
