My kids are in trouble

I remember it like yesterday.

It was my first day on the phone as a salesperson at Ziglar - 27 years ago.

I had been trained. I was as ready as I could be. I was also a little scared. At 24 years of age, I was nervous about selling our products and services to people I didn't know.

Finding GOAL-D

Here is the situation.

You are at a friend's house.

Your friend explains to you that there is treasure buried on his land. So much treasure that when you find it, it will change your life!

Your friend says you are welcome to search for it.

The Truth

"Every heart has a place for truth spoken in love." Tom Ziglar

The challenge is, not every heart is ready to hear the truth.

Yet, this is what I have found - when you share the truth in love - it resonates and has a tendency over time to find a home.

Just a little bit better

I have been thinking about the word incrementalism.


Belief in or advocacy of change by degrees; gradualism.

"Inch by inch it's a cinch. Mile by mile it's a trial."

Figuring out how to be successful in 2017 might be a mile trial.

Soap, Shirts, or Success?

Make this Christmas about Success, not Soap and Shirts!

What is your definition of success?

I am pretty sure the definition of a successful Christmas isn’t nice-smelling soap and a shirt that fits. Yet, isn’t this how most of us shop – droning from store to store, checking things off the list?

A Christmas Game-Changer

Things feel "uneasy" right now. The elections are over and the world stage feels as confused as ever.

Christmas is the time of year when hope is reborn. When we connect with family and we are reminded of our blessings.

We start to look forward to the coming year.

With Gratitude

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States.

I want you to know that I am extremely grateful to you, our Zignificance email readers.

Every day I get words of encouragement from you. When you send a note to me, it makes my day! And when you tell me that the Zignificance emails help you in some small way, it lifts my spirits in a huge way.

The 1% Difference

14 minutes.

14 minutes is 1% of the time in a day.

14 minutes can change everything.

14 minutes has made 2016 an incredible year for Ken Grant, one of our

Ziglar Legacy Certified trainers.

In fact, the leadership at his company asked him his secret and WHY he

was having so much better results than everyone else, even though he

had exactly the same resources.

Attitude, Goals, and Success

A good ATTITUDE will out perform a bad attitude every time. Zig Ziglar

A GOAL properly set is halfway reached. Zig Ziglar

SUCCESS is the journey, not the destination. Zig Ziglar

It seems like SUCCESS depends on your ATTITUDE and the GOALS that you have on your journey through life.

Show #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.
