449: Inspired but alone  

Tom Ziglar & Kevin Miller answer real questions from podcast listeners. We have some tactical questions, and some deep, personal development questions today. Chances are 100% you’ll hear something that resonates, inspires, and equips you! Thanks to ZipRecruiter and Princess Cruise Lines for their support of this episode.  

448: A prospect for what you sell  

Your product, service, message and mission need a constant flow of the right people, “viable prospects”, getting exposure. Zig gives us a professional class on the topic, then we break down the high points. If you think you aren’t in sales…you’re listening to the wrong podcast. We all need this message, and will benefit from Zig’s counsel! Thanks to ZipRecruiter and Princess Cruise Lines for their support of this episode.

447: Revisited, Zig on increasing your hope!  

If hope, is not the most important factor of success, it is at least the first step and foundation. Without hope, we either don’t ever take action, or we take weak action that does not produce success. With hope, we achieve astounding things. So here you go, start your New Year off with the first step in your quest for success, however you define it. Thanks to Blue Apron and ZipRecruiter for supporting this episode!

446:  Rewrite your story with Owen Fitzpatrick  

Owen Fitzpatrick walks us through the tangible realities of changing our perspective and story from victim to overcomer. He shares as a psychologist, therapist and coach, but also from his own, hard story. His recent TEDx talk, “Mind Control: How to win the war in your head”, has had over 50,000 views in the first month, as he delivers and entertaining, yet poignant, 10-minute talk. This is foundational personal development for inspiring true performance.  

445: When should we accept “No”  

Zig tells his personal story of being rejected for his first sales position. When he finally got hired, he spent two and a half years…failing. Why did he keep pursuing this sales job when he was told he wasn’t qualified, he didn’t have any affinity for the product, and ultimately he proved them right by doing a poor job. Why did he continue? At face value, it’s hard to see that it was wise. We listen in, and then unpack it a bit. Thanks to Braintree for their support of this episode.

444: Q&A with Tom Ziglar & Kevin Miller  

You sent in questions on specific issues addressed in recent shows…and today we answer. Tom Ziglar and Show host Kevin Miller candidly respond to real questions from real people striving to inspire their true performance!  

443: The beautiful challenge of personal responsibility – with Dan Miller  

Zig gives his story and Dan Miller helps us unpack the essence of overcoming vs being overcome. By life. By challenges. We dig into a drive, aspiration and the “DNA of desire”. This conversation really gets into the roots of why we do and don’t actually take action and make progress.

442: Determine your habits and why and succeed – with Tom Ziglar  

In this show, we interview…Tom Ziglar. CEO of Ziglar and leader of the legacy! We recently got an iTunes 5-star review that simply said…”More Tom”. So…we aim to deliver, and today, we are! Tom Ziglar has been CEO of Ziglar for a long time, but since Zig passed away 3 years ago, Tom’s impact has ramped up dramatically. Today we make him the focus. Who is Tom? How did he come to run the Ziglar empire, and why? And what does he see for all of us in the future? What is our hope, our opportunity? Our possibility? Then we dig into one of his favorite topics…habit. This show went deep and is a profound commentary on the status of hope, encouragement, and inspiration in today’s world. This show may be the primer you need to hear, before any other show. Thanks to Harry’s Razors and Lenovo for their support of this show.

Success, Goals, Attitude & Christmas!  

Tom Ziglar inspires our true performance by delivering some short, stout perspectives on Success, Goals and Attitude. Stand-alone value. For those who desire, he wraps up by sharing some amazing Ziglar Christmas gift packages!

441: Telling the truth in advance  

Ziglar does not believe in “fake it until you make it”. But we do believe in “telling the truth in advance”. One of Ziglar’s most popular messages and offerings is his Self-Talk cards. In this show, host Kevin Miller digs in with Tom Ziglar to question and encourage the use of this most powerful tool for reprogramming your brain for success.

440: Live your life, not theirs – with Rachel Cruze  

Rachel Cruze inspires our true performance by pointing out a primary reason we spend money we shouldn’t, and become controlled by it. What is it? Social status. In today’s culture there is something causing us to do this more than ever, and I would not have guessed what it was before reading her book. The culprit? Social Media. It’s not the bad buy, but the “highlight reel” is causing us to spend. So, what do we do about it? Listen to the show! Thanks so new sponsor Hello Fresh, and Braintree for their support of this episode of The Ziglar Show.  

439: Stop the anger  

In this message Zig expounds on the trajectory of anger and the necessity for us to understand it in others for what it so often is. It’s about them, not us. To rise above  it however, we must have a level of self-confidence and a self-protecting willingness to extend grace. Thank you so Salesforce and Lenovo for their support of this episode!  

438: Being Zig’s kid, the weird and good with Julie Ziglar Norman  

What can Zig teach you without speaking from a stage or a book? Let his youngest daughter tell you. He really was mortal, he wasn’t perfect, but the story is compelling. Plus get inspired by Julie’s message on “being the right person” as the key to your success. Thanks to Julie’s company, Prime Property Realty, for supporting this show. See what they have to offer you in investment values!

437: Do people like you? Really?  

Your capability on the job is maybe half your opportunity. Being liked is the other half. And if you are not well liked, you’ll lose an opportunity to those who technically, are inferior to you. Don’t let this happens. Zig talks to us today about the value of being liked, and literally gives us “10 Commandments of Human Relations!” Thanks to Salesforce for supporting this episode.  

436: Sell with a Story – Paul Smith  

Remember. You ARE in sales. If you want people to hear you, frame your message in a story. You don’t have to be or become a “storyteller”, you just simply utilize short (1-2 minute) stories to dramatically increase your success in communicating a message. This is an intriguing and highly actionable show with author and speaker and authority on story, Paul Smith. Thanks so Harry’s Razors and Salesforce for their support of this episode!

435: What you speak defines you  

None of us realize the gravity of this reality. What we speak…our statements, our responses, our conversations, define us to others. And thus, garner us respect and attraction, or disdain and distance. To varying degrees. This is BIG medicine folks. Listen to 8 minutes of Zig on stage, then we’ll hold some of his statements captive and as usual, break them down for better absorption! Thanks to for their support of this episode.  

434: Provide value, get paid – with Jeff Goins  

Jeff Goins “stumbled” upon success. Meaning, he had an education, a good job, a family…and a joy in writing. So he wrote. For his work, in blogs and more, till something happened. His wife got pregnant and would lose their second income. Then he got serious. He turned his joy of writing and the value he was providing people through it, to not only a second income but a dramatic income. How? Providing value. But not to everyone. Just those who he personally related to. Sounds good, doesn’t it? It is. This is a must listen to show. Thanks to Salesforce for supporting this episode.

433:Who taught you how to communicate?  

Chances are 99%...nobody. You are a novice. At best. Even if you’re better than anyone you know. Zig gives us the keys to what effective communication is, and how to do it well. Thanks so Salesforce for their support of this episode.  

432: Fire your boss! But keep your job - with Aaron McHugh  

Aaron McHugh takes us on a journey from cultural self-preservation and conforming, to true, epic self-preservation. But it doesn’t mean quitting your job. His message frees you to have the control and joy in your work that you’ve always dreamed of. Or possibly, never dreamed was possible! Thanks to Harry’s Razors, Salesforce and Kabbage for their support of this episode.

431: Pay the price now to avoid the cost later  

Classic Zig gives us a 180 in this compelling message about the prices we pay today to avoid the far greater costs tomorrow. He frames it in a sales training message, but as you’ll hear in the show, we bring this incredibly valuable message directly home to your life. Mine too. Thanks to Performa Sleep and Kabbage for supporting this episode!
