467: Selling is caring and if you care you must sell  

One of Zig’s favorite quotes and mine (Kevin) is, “If you believe your product or service can fulfill a true need, it's your moral obligation to sell it.” But it’s even bigger. YOU are a product and you are on planet earth to serve. Selling is influencing. If you can’t effectively influence others in a positive way, you can’t really serve them much. Thus if you are walking through life today with no formal understanding of and training in selling/influencing, you are living life handicapped. I’ll even submit you are handicapping those you love because you are not as effective as you should be in helping them…because you aren’t listening enough, caring enough or successfully speaking their language. Not yet. But after this show, you’ll be well on your way! Thanks to Constant Contact, Upside, Blue Apron and ZipRecruiter for supporting this episode.

466: Hero, a message every man needs to hear – Dr. Meg Meeker  

Dr. Meg Meeker says, “In a culture that lauds mothers as the parental heads of the house, the role of fathers has become inappropriately minimized—and in some cases even ridiculed. Fathers need to see themselves the way their children see them, You are, whether you know it or not, the center of their world, the hub of the wheel that is your family, the hero they depend on. If you’re not there or not engaged, they suffer.” Those are significant statements and it’s what we dig into in this interview, along with, “Three questions your child needs you to answer”. Thanks to Constant Contact, Fresh Mac, “The New Rules of Work” book, and Capterra for supporting this episode.

465: Training ground of respect and honesty  

Zig takes us into some distinct stories of respect and honesty what will leave you convicted. He also addresses the need for real communication and our lack of it, even amongst this age when we are more connected than ever. We hit on parenting, marriage, communication and setting our principals to prepare for storms! Thanks to Constant Contact, “New Rules of Work” and ZipRecruiter for their support of this episode.

464: How being kind actually makes you happier – Shaunti Feldhahn  

Shaunti Feldhahn is a Harvard University grad and was an analyst on Wall Street before unexpectedly becoming a social researcher, best-selling author, and popular speaker. Today, she uses her analytical skills to investigate life-changing truths about relationships. Her new, groundbreaking research-based book, “The Kindness Challenge – Thirty Days To Improve Any Relationship” delivers this evidence: Whether we thrive depends far more on how we choose to treat others than on how we ourselves are treated. The path to our happy place starts with one choice: whether or not to be kind. Especially when we really don’t want to be. This is a message you can take action on today. Thanks to Constant Contact, New Rules of Work (book) and ZipRecruiter for their support of this episode.  

463: Fueling ourselves by loving others  

Zig brings us a message on - you - getting to your full potential. How? By getting outside of your world of you, and looking to others. Caring for them. Being the bigger person. The result? You get your superpower. You get your just rewards. You up your performance. It’s not rocket science. You’d think it was common sense. But it’s so, so uncommon. Zig expounds on the power of personal relationships and specifically, the benefit to ourselves when we love others. Did you catch that? Not just the benefit to others when we are proactive in loving ways to them, but the benefit first, and maybe most, to ourselves. Thanks to Constant Contact, Varidesk, ZipRecruiter and Blue Apron for their support of this episode.

462: Expectation hangover – Christine Hassler  

Christine Hassler brings us guidance on how to deal with disappointment on the emotional, mental, behavioral and spiritual levels in her book, “Expectation Hangover” – Free yourself from your past, change your present & get what you really want. We led into the interview from a statement Christine gave us, “To have true, aligned and lasting performance, we need to be connected to the TRUTH of who we are. We need to let go of limited self-beliefs, turn down the voice of the inner critic, drop masks of who we think we are “supposed” to be and agendas of what we think we “should” do.” Sounds very Ziglaresque, wouldn’t you say?! We cover issues such as, ““We all face setbacks we cannot control, yet we often forget that we have a choice about how to handle those setbacks.” As well as, “Managing your expectations is not about lowering your standards.” This was a powerful and eye opening interview that provides relevant value to everyone. Guaranteed. Thanks to Varidesk, Constant Contact, ZipRecruiter, and Capterra for this support of this episode.

461: How to get preferential treatment  

Zig Ziglar is about doing the right thing. He also…liked nice things and was unabashed about his desire to be successful and appreciating what money could buy. We can have what he had, all the success and trappings, if we’ll do what he did. Which was, “help other people get what they want.” It’s right, it’s Christ-like, and it pays off in dramatic fashion! But, it’s a massive paradigm shift. It truly is and you probably have not grasped the gravity of it. Dive in with us, this is deep water. Deep water that holds riches. Thanks to Constant Contact, Varidesk, Upside and Capterra for their support of this episode.  

460: Invest 3-5% of your income in yourself – Dan Miller  

Dan Miller, famed author of the bestseller “48 Days To The Work You Love”, takes us through this principle and helps take investing in oneself from a mere ideal to a tangible, structured methodology, even helping outline what does and does not qualify as true “investment” in oneself. This will inspire you, but also gives you structure and permission for fueling your success by increasing…you!  

459: How to speak life  

Zig speaks today on the absolute truth of how we speak to and about others. What it does not only to them, but to us and those around us. This message steps on all our toes, but also offers and success action step we can begin immediately. This is a powerful self-audit. I (Kevin) took the message to the mirror, to my family, and already in an upcoming show. Get your notebook out and listen in. Thanks to Constant Contact, ZipRecruiter and Capterra for supporting this episode.

455: Q&A with Tom & Kevin  

This is the ever popular Q&A show with Tom Ziglar and Kevin Miller. You’ll hear questions such as “how do you know when it's time for you to start your own business”, “What did Zig Ziglar do between his humble beginnings as a door to door salesman and his stage in front of millions? What’s the in-between story?” and “I’m graduating college, how do I figure out exactly what to pursue”. The Q&A shows with myself and Tom Ziglar continue to grow in popularity with our audience, so I grabbed Tom out of a weeklong Ziglar Legacy Certification event at Ziglar headquarters, to get on the mic with me for 40 minutes. We had some great questions, and though I feel I rushed to answer them…we only got through 3. But that’s OK, as chances are, you will resonate with them. We were answering individuals, but on questions that pertain to most everyone listening to the show. Join as and hear real stories and feedback from others like you who are striving to inspire their…true performance!

454: Threats to your self-image  

Zig Ziglar. On stage, and in a more intense mood than his somewhat jovial presentations. Why? He’s talking about self-image, a topic he was most passionate about it. In this message Zig’s focus is on some of the key things that cause a bad self-image. Thing is, we need to take audit of within ourselves, so we can correct them and succeed. This is a meaty show folks! Thanks to Constant Contact, Blue Apron and Princess Cruise Lines for their support of this episode! 

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.
