The Ziglar Show | Motivation & Inspiration to fuel

United States

Zig Ziglar is recognized as a world leader in Motivation & Inspiration who has reached and influenced over 250 million people through his best selling books, legendary presentations and timeless quotes. He is one of the most quoted leaders of all time. In The Ziglar Show, hosts Kevin Miller, Tom Ziglar (CEO & Proud son!) and special guests take messages from Zig and other inspiration leaders and drill down so you can utilize them to ‘Inspire True Performance’ in your life today!"


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!

430: Revisited: Zig’s 15 qualities of a successful person!  

Forget “Keys To Success” and what you should DO. Zig gives us qualities for success and how you should BE, in order to have more success. This is the foundation and possibly what you’ve been missing in your quest!

429: Young, inspired and on fire  

Tom Ziglar brings us a new focus for Ziglar…inspiring today’s youth. He’s empowered two Ziglar leaders to lead an initiative to bring the Ziglar message of inspiration, motivation and massive personal transformation to today’s youth. If you ARE today’s youth, or you are parents or friends to today’s youth, you need to hear this…and pass it along! Thank you to Performa Sleep and Kabbage for supporting this episode of The Ziglar Show!  

428: Never start over and dance with fear  

In show 424 we heard from Zig Ziglar and discussed the health of responding vs reacting. I invited questions. We got some on that topic, but it also just generated a bunch of great questions on the real life issues we cover here on The Ziglar Show regarding, “How do I really…inspire my true performance? Me, in my life?” So from personal development to some business development, we cover some big issues. One I want to pull out really questioned the issue of “positive thinking” and always being optimistic. Is it just being stoic and unemotional and…an unrealistic robot or Pollyanna persona? Then folks, near the end of the show we get into the issue of work you love, working at your passions. That’s where the excerpt from the top of the show came from and I think it will shed light on the topic that will be very reassuring and freeing for most of you.

427: How does your image affect your performance?  

And what should we do about it? Zig gives us a 10-minute message on the power of what others negatively say about us…that we agree with. Then what WE say to ourselves, that we agree with. Nobody has permission to minimize who we are, and we don’t have the right to agree with minimizing statements, as children of God. To walk this out however, we must be very countercultural. The human norm veers toward negative statements. We must combat and reverse this. Listen in as Zig inspires us toward…our True Performance!  

426:The Talented-Person Blind Spot – with Roy H Williams  

You have talent, and you’re probably somewhat blind to it. You minimize your talent and yourself. Which makes you…normal, according to Roy H Williams. On September 18, 2016 Roy sent out his weekly “Monday Morning Memo” and within moments of reading it, Ziglar Show host Kevin Miller contacted Roy’s camp and requested an interview as soon as possible. Days later it happened. Along with the topic at hand, they also took some majestic detours into personal and business branding, what humility actually is, and Roy’s take on following your passions.

425: Blame! Who or what?  

Who or what is to blame? People and things DO happen to us. We are victims. As Tom Ziglar states in this show, feeling blame us often justified and makes all the sense in the world. We’ve often got every right to feel that way! But do we use the blame as an excuse to confine us? Or do we do the illogical thing and…let it go. And succeed…anyway?! Thanks to NerdWallet and ZipRecruiter for supporting this episode.  

424: Do you respond or react to life?  

Zig asks us if we respond to life, or if we react to life? He explains the difference. Then he asks who or what do we allow to control our attitude, and therefore our actions? Who do we bequeath power to, or do we retain it for ourselves? Zig cites,  “You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes in advance to fit that situation in life. But at the core of your ability is your own…self image.” We’re going to listen to about 11 minutes of Zig, then drill in on a few of those topics. Thank you to Wealthfront and Autodesk for their support of this episode!  

423: Why am I not changing?!  

We as humans often skip over the foundational step. The step of “being”. It comes before “doing” and from that, the end result…having. Zig makes two big points in this show, 1) We must first be (become) the right person, and 2) We must have vision. The clip from Zig is about 12 minutes, then we spend another 20 discussing the key points. Thanks to Autodesk for their support of this show!

422: Zig’s primary lessons to his son  

Tom Ziglar answers a question in this Q&A with host Kevin Miller, about the most important lesson’s his Dad, Zig Ziglar, gave him as a child and adult. His answer uncovers possibly four of the most important lesson’s Zig has for us all. Thank you to Audible and new show sponsor, SmileDirectClub, for supporting this show!  

421: Friendship, partnership or romance? Which do you want?  

The 2nd installment of our recent focus on Zig’s favorite topic…marriage. Host Kevin Miller and his wife Teri tackle the 3rd question from Show #418, what percentage of a marriage should be friendship, partnership or romance? Then they cover a number of the over 600 questions and comments posted to their live, Facebook video. Thanks to Concordia University Wisconsin and Autodesk for supporting this episode!

420: What agreements have you made with yourself?  

Zig asks, “What do you believe about yourself?!” This dictates everything you do in your life. Your decisions, your actions, your successes, and failures. For the most part, you get to choose what you will and won’t believe about yourself. That’s the good news. The current unfortunate news is…we all tend to believe what others say about us. Especially those closest to us. It shouldn’t be so. Listen in to hear Zig. Thanks to Braintree and Wealth Front for supporting this episode.

419: How to love going home – Mark Timm  

Mark made millions in his business, but could hardly get himself to pull up the driveway to home. Why? He felt like a failure at home and would rather just stay at work where he experienced success and fulfillment. Until…he tried applying his successful work strategies with his family. Today Mark is the new CEO of Ziglar Family. Find them now and get your free “Raising Positive Kids” book at Thanks to Concordia University of Wisconsin and Qualaroo for supporting this episode!

418: Your marriage needs stress  

If it’s strong it will bolster your entire life. If it’s weak, it will cripple your world. Host Kevin Miller is joined by his wife Teri to discuss a message from Zig. They cover 1) What is the value of a good marriage and 2) What is the foundation of a good marriage? Thank you to Wealth Front and Earth Class Mail for supporting this show!

417: Anything worth doing, is worth doing poorly…  

…until you can do it well. You need to hear the breakdown of that statement, as you can’t take it at face value. It is the launching point of this powerful message from Zig. We took it from “Strategies for Success – Blueprint of Achievement. Zig wraps up the entire series talking about goals and really achieving them. This is Zig at his inspirational summit.  

416: Jon Acuff – Get a Career Do Over  

You WILL hit a Career Ceiling. You WILL experience a Career Bump. You WILL make a Career Jump. You WILL get a surprise Career Opportunity. The question is, will you handle these invariable transitions victoriously? Of course, because you’re going to listen to this show and Jon’s counsel…  

415: Quit praying and start listening – Bob Beaudine  

Bob Beaudine says this is THE secret that changes everything. We ask…how. Really. How? In real life, how do you tangibly ask God and hear anything specific? It sounds great, but in reality seems about as realistically tangible as levitating. I guarantee listening to this show will be a revelation to this concept.

414: Withstanding the liquor of Success with Steve Smith  

We all want success in life, business, finances, relationships, health and more. But success can often have a high cost, namely in our peace, contentment, and happiness. Steve Smith has his own story as a rising megachurch pastor and the toll it took on his life. Today he’s now walked with thousands of C-level executives, business owners, megachurch pastors and high achievers, who have had aspects of crash-and-burn in their lives and businesses. What has he learned from this and how can we do pursue success…healthfully? Steve actually sat in the studio with Kevin and a candid, lively, in-depth and profound discussion took place. This is a must listen to from Ziglar’s True Performance Show.  

413: Hostile takeover of your mind  

This is the absolute crux of your entire life and existence regarding success and failure. You control it by what you speak and think. Practice the exercise in this show and declare war, rebellion and anarchy on yourself.  

412: Success programming for your brain  

Zig is helping us to actually achieve our goals, and it comes down to…us. What we do and don’t do. But don’t rely on sheer will. And definitely, don’t rely on happenstance. What are you doing, and not doing, every day…that is leading you? We listen to Zig then pull out three main points for better digestion.
