Dove Review

Zig: You Were Born to Win is an inspiring documentary about the life, success, and legacy of motivational speaker and Christian, Zig Ziglar. Featuring interviews with his friends, loved ones, children, wife, and those his message influenced, viewers are taken on a virtual tour of Mr. Ziglar’s life from humble beginnings to world renown. The documentary follows him, as told by family and friends, as he discovers his true gift for motivational speaking, his relationship with Christ, and the enduring effect his life and teachings had on others.

Watching Mr. Ziglar’s life in pictures, it is inspiring to see how he overcame obstacle after obstacle to eventually become a household name, a powerful influencer, and the lives he has touched to this day. Although at times it may seem as if Mr. Ziglar is being idolized, the film rounds out toward the end by honing in on what made Mr. Ziglar so dynamic: his relationship with Christ. Although an already charismatic and encouraging speaker, Mr. Ziglar began incorporating the Bible and faith into his messages, which began to touch not just minds—but hearts and souls. The love that his family and colleagues felt for him is evident through their interviews as they describe the impact his storytelling had on their lives and careers. Through the film we see that success is great, but integrity and faith are even greater.

As far as content goes, there isn’t any cursing or adult situations, however his loved ones do describe the day he died and a traumatic injury he sustained (nothing is shown). Whether you’re a Zig fan or not, this film is an interesting watch for the testimony alone. Zig: You Were Born to Win merits the Dove-Approved All Ages Seal.
