“We are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success & endowed with the seeds of greatness”

"Man was designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness” (also “You are/were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness” and “We are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness” and “We are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness") is a saying from American author, salesman, and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar (1926-2012). The saying has been printed on many images.

“Man was designed for accomplishment, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness” was printed in the book Biscuits, Fleas, and Pump Handles (1974) by Zig Ziglar. “You were created for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with The Seeds of Greatness” was printed in the Lincoln (NE) Star on January 22, 1977. “For we are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness” was printed in the Crowley (LA) Post Signal on January 7, 1996.
