453: Ray Edwards – The copywriting formula you must follow to make sales  

Ray Edwards joins us today. He’s a renowned Communications Strategist, Copywriter, Author and Speaker. If you have any involvement in selling a product, service or message…or yourself, you really need to listen in. Most people commence to marketing, and skip over…the very thing that makes marketing efforts successful. All that effort to drive people to your offer, only to fail because the offer…does not connect.

452: The power of relationships at work  

Today we hear a message from the legend of motivation and inspiration, the champion of personal development, Zig Ziglar. Today he walks us through some stats and reality of success in the workplace being highly dependent on the value of our relationships…even eclipsing our mastery of the job. The great news is it’s something we can change, immediately! He hits on 4 topics: 1) the value of appreciating others, 2) treating everyone like a VIP, 3) expecting the best from others so you can get the best from them and 4) treating everyone with care and respect. But let me caution you here, this is not about being humanitarian of the year Mr. or Mrs. Nice Guy. The point is teaching you how you can have far greater success in your life and work. And quite honestly, if you really pay attention to the message and then think about your own behavior, chances are you’ll recognize and have to admit that the qualities Zig is espousing here are not up to par in your life. But again, the great news is…you can address it now! You can take action today, and tomorrow and immediately begin increasing and securing your success. Thanks to Constant Contact, Pro Flowers and ZipRecruiter for their support of this episode.  

451: Q&A with Tom and Kevin  

We opened the door for questions and the Ziglar audience poured them in. In this show, we cover questions on establishing new habits, how to take personal retreats, dealing with unmotivated spouses and if it’s possible to pursue one’s dreams while having young kids! Thanks to Constant Contact and Pro Flowers for supporting this episode.

450: Master productivity, discipline and focus – John Lee Dumas  

John Lee Dumas set the podcast world on fire with his show, Entrepreneur on Fire, and his business success. Last year we discussed his “Freedom Journal” on goal setting and achieving. Now he has come out with a product, really as a result of requests from his audience. The question of, “Hey, to achieve my goals, I need to be more productive, more disciplined and have more focus.” These are strengths of Johns, so he didn’t just write a book, he crafted a journal to help you work through achieving success in these three areas; Productivity, Discipline, Focus. This was an intriguing, valuable and truly fun show. Thanks so Constant Contact, Blue Apron and Princess Cruise Lines for supporting this episode.

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.

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.
