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?

Rank #5: 784: Approve of yourself and influence others

Podcast cover
Read more

We all want to influence others, as without that ability, we can’t help anyone. We won’t matter. There are a couple interesting factors in this quest. One, we can’t say what our influence is, only others can. So I asked this question to the Ziglar audience, “If everyone in your life had to give an honest testimony of your influence on them, good and bad, how do you feel about what they would share?” Two, how we feel about ourselves is a root issue that greatly impact our influence. So I posted a second question, “What actions, behaviors, and/or thoughts help, and hurt, your approval of yourself?” Tom Ziglar and I read through many of the responses and talked about the convergence of these two important issues.

Rank #8: 746: Maximizing the engine of you

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s a New Year and weight loss, exercise, and eating better are the the most searched for New Year’s Resolution topics. This show is about personal development, growth, change, and success, and this special episode is about the engine of you. You are your power source. I don’t mean spiritually, I’m just talking about your physical body which houses your brain and your overall capacity. As you seek to go about your life, you will do so at the mercy and capability of your body. As you look at your health and wellness, who are you going to listen to? What resource or program or so-called "hack" are you going to try? As my friend Angelo Poli of the company Metpro said, and I paraphrase, "Every methodology has worked. Sometimes for some people." So it's a crap shoot at best. Which begs the holy grail question, what should you do to best address your health and wellness needs and goals? In this show I'm going to give you what I claim to be the irrefutable answer. But the caveat is that it's not a final answer, it is a framework. If you wanted to live in a custom home, nobody can just hand you the blueprint. They'd have to know your desires and where you want to build. That said, every home built will have the same aspects of what I'm calling a framework. It will have a foundation and sewage system and electricity and all the necessities of any other house. This is what I will provide for you today, the framework for the house of you to be at its best. The show is about 45 minutes, then at my conclusion, I'm going to give you a Facebook live recording from Tom Ziglar on a physical transformation he experienced in 2019 at the hands of personal trainer Angelo Poli. I interviewed Angelo in episode 683 where we really talked about body metabolism. For disclosure, I became a client and today, after years of plateau, I have put on and have more muscle than ever in my lifetime. Tom as you will hear, wanted to lose weight which he did. In this show I believe you’ll find a comprehensive understanding as to how to address your health and wellness.

Rank #11: 657: Being mentally tough - Habits with Alan Stein

Podcast cover

Is being mentally tough a healthy habit for success? This is our Habits show where we walk through the seven spokes in the Ziglar Wheel of life and hear the healthy habit of our guests. This time we’re with Alan Stein, high performance coach known for his work with  pro basketball players and author of “Raise Your Game”. In show 655 we dug into his message and primarily focused on the massive value and necessity of...self-awareness. On that note, reviewing his healthy habits was profound. I was intrigued with his commentary on mental toughness and the reality that all we can control is our attitude and effort, and that goes even for NBA pro athletes. You can get the book and connect with Alan at raiseyourgamebook.com/ or wherever you buy books. Though at his site you can get a free preview right away.

Rank #12: 691: Discover your fear type and master it - with Ruth Soukup

Podcast cover
Read more

Get ready to blow fear wide open. Until now we have tried to label ourselves and others as fearful or not, when the research now shows fear has multiple archetypes and we all fit into something. Someone with no fear is mentally ill. Outside of that you can find out which types of fears you have, which are most predominant, and how to manage them, not eradicate them! But rather to manage them and “Do It Scared.” Thus is the title of our guest Ruth Soukup’s new book, Do It Scared®: Finding the Courage to Face Your Fears, Overcome Obstacles, and Create a Life You LoveRuth dealt with debilitating fear that landed her in severe depression and into psychiatric hospitals, so she is an expert in the results of unharnessed fear. But from this critical, personal experience, Ruth made fear her muse and dove deep. This resulted in hiring teams of researchers to uncover the truth about and breadth of fear. The results have led her to a blog with over 1 million subscribers, multiple best selling books, and a top ranked podcast. What she discovered are seven Fear Archetypes, which include the Procrastinator, the Rule Follower, the People Pleaser, the Outcast, the Self-Doubter, the Excuse Maker and the Pessimist. While the Fear Archetypes themselves are incredibly fascinating, Soukup explains that it is actually how we use them that makes all the difference. She says, "fear is a little bit different for everyone, but once you can identify the unique way that fear is holding you back, you can also create solutions to overcome that unique fear." I did Ruth’s ground breaking fear assessment and mine...blew me away. Literally folks, I haven’t had such a revelation about my personal make up that I was unaware of, since...honestly I can’t remember. I’ve now had all of my family members over the age of 16 do the assessment, not only so they can hone in on their fear type, but I can know it and better understand them. To everyone...significant revelation. I can’t recommend this enough folks. And I’ll give you a gift, actually it’s from Ruth. Go to https://doitscared.com/assessment/ and take your own. What you get for free is profound, and you can upgrade to the premium results. I can’t recommend it more. 30,000 people have completed it.

Rank #13: 706: 10 Commandments of Human Relations by Zig Ziglar

Podcast cover
Read more

What is more valuable than having human relations skills? Maybe...nothing. The quality of your relationships, the quantity of your relationships, and the joy in your relationships is equal to your human relations abilities. Along the way, we all learn some basics and out of Zig Ziglar’s 10 Commandments of Human Relations, you are probably doing some of them well, and benefiting from them. But where are you not doing well, and suffering? Or at least not benefiting where you could. We play a four minute clip from Zig Ziglar where he quickly takes us down his list. Judging that Zig is held up as one of the very top, most successful communicators of all time, the list feels fairly irrefutable. I asked the Ziglar audience, which of Zig’s 10 commandments do you most succeed with and which ones do you most struggle with? Tom Ziglar joined me to talk through your comments. I’ll tell you this right off, the area people are weakest in, nearly 50%, said they failed at remembering and calling people by their names! Zig’s rule number three. But listen on and you will want to hear the rest.

Rank #14: 647: Rick Hanson -- How To Hardwire Your Brain For Happiness And Resilience

Podcast cover
Read more

Do you want to be happy, joyful, at peace? I can’t imagine anyone would say no. But as a human we generally look to our circumstances to provide these things. Something else is being...resilient...meaning ‘able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions’?

So in this show we get to what I’m tempted to label a root issue of our personal performance, but that doesn’t feel like it does us justice. It’s Our very selves, our joy, our peace, our very lives. Rick Hanson is a psychologist whose focus is neuroscience. He wrote the book “Hardwiring Happiness” that my business partner who is an MD, said I MUST read. I went to buy the book and saw he had a new book, “Resilient” - How To Grow An Unshakable Core Of Calm, Strength, and HappinessNow folks, this isn’t about merely “feeling good”. You can get a temporary feel good from many things, as i mentioned before...circumstances. But We’re talking the foundation of ourselves. Being Calm in any situation, strong overall, and having true, enduring happiness. Those are not easy things to attain, and few truly have. All you strive for, every day, is for an ultimate goal. What is it? To be miserable, or happy and joyful? To be stressed out and worried, or at peace? So this is not theory, it comes from Rick’s research. It is an eye-opening, profound conversation.

Quick background on Rick Hanson, he’s a Ph.D., a psychologist, Senior Fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, and New York Times best-selling author. His books are available in 28 languages and include Resilient, Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture.He’s founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplative Wisdom. In 2016 he gave a keynote address at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association.You can find Rick’s books at.rickhanson.net/ , but if you are as intrigued by what you hear as I believe you will be, I encourage you to go to thefoundationsofwellbeing.com/ where you can literally engage with Rick’s methodology and neuroscience.

Welcome to The Ziglar Show, I’m your host, Kevin Miller. Do you really know how to listen? I asked this question on Facebook,” What have you been taught regarding...listening? Being a good listener? Do you think you are a good listener?” We received about 50 responses, but while a lot of people shared things they had heard in regards to being a good listener,  most also admitted...they weren’t so good. This comes from my recent series on listening, brought to us by Oscar Trimboli, don’t miss his show #651. And for this Q&A session, I asked Oscar to join us! I think I learned more from hearing his responses to your real life questions that I did in my main interview with him. And as you’ll hear, he was listening. To me. Watching me. And you’ll hear first hand how he employs deep listening skills in the moment. I’ve had so many people say they went to his website at oscartrimboli.com and purchased his book. I’d highly recommend it.

A clip from Zig Ziglar, longer than normal, over six minutes. But we just couldn’t cut it more because it’s golden. Zig talks to us about the power of our attitudes and how the number one high octane fuel to support our positive attitude is - gratitude. From this I asked this QUESTION on Facebook: “I need some stories on “gratitude”, but want to hear from two sides: 1) tell me a time when you used gratitude to successfully change your attitude about something, OR 2) tell me when you realized there wasn’t enough to be grateful for and you made a needed change.” Tom Ziglar and I talked through the incredible comments and really covered a lot of ground regarding getting rid of negative perspectives and either changing your paradigm with gratitude, or when necessary, changing the circumstances.

When should you quit? When is continuing actually harming you? In this show we hear from Zig Ziglar about a guy pursuing what he deemed as...success. But once unpacked...realized the direction he was going was not at all going to produce was he wanted. I think aspects of the message speak to...all of us. Truly. From the message I asked this question on Facebook,  “What is a pursuit you have given up...for the better? Something you quit going after, and are grateful you did!” We got responses from career and business pursuits, to schooling, to personal relationship issues. Michelle Prince joined me to talk through all the comments, it was pretty amazing.

Rank #20: 608: How do you strengthen yourself?

Podcast cover
Read more

We look at the concept of how we stay up and positive instead of low and negative.  Zig Ziglar gives us a short message, telling us of how often people told him, “Zig, I was feeling so down, I was so low, then I read your books or listened to your messages again and got back up!” While that is great, Zig asks, “Wouldn't it be better to be continually working to stay up and not get so low to begin with? He states, “It’s easier to stay up, than to get up!” Before you question whether this is realistic, have you heard this quote from Zig? “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.”Truly, think about it. Do you take a shower and then wait multiple days until your hair is greasy and you have really rank b.o. Before you shower again? Or do you kind of...keep on top of it? If you go to a place of employment everyday, or...if you’re married, I’ll bet you tend to personal hygiene daily. Well, Zig is calling us to tend to our motivational hygiene, daily. Before our attitude gets greasy and rank.

So...from his message I asked this question,  “What do you do, consistently, to strengthen and prepare yourself 1) Physically, 2) Mentally and 3) Emotionally to be well and better withstand life’s challenges? Then, if you’d also state 4) Which area you struggle with most.” We got loads of responses and Tom Ziglar and i talked through them. You’ll be very interested to hear what all was shared...got us both inspired.

Podcast cover

For your success strategy, what tools or weapons will you choose? Grit? Willpower? Talent? Perseverance? This national correspondent for ABC News had all those, but she cites her most beneficial asset has been...kindness. You probably think of being kind as a nice thing to do. That may be the least value it has. Adrienne Bankert credits kindness for her rapid career trajectory that took her from a traffic anchor at a local news station to the coveted role of national correspondent for ABC News. In her new book, “Your Hidden Superpower” - The Kindness That Makes You Unbeatable At Work And Connects You with Anyone, she outlines the continual opportunities and promotions which time and time again were bestowed upon her because of her devotion to being kind to everyone at all times. Not an easy prospect, as you will hear. This show is going to give you a far different perspective on being kind, which is not always, just being nice. Adrienne is an Emmy-award winning journalist known for her compelling interviews. She was the POP News anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America and is now a New York based national correspondent for ABC News. Just type her name into your search engine and hit "News" and you'll generally find her national coverage from Adrienne within the past 48 hours. www.yourhiddensuperpower.com

I’ve got five minutes of sales expertise from Zig Ziglar where he simply states, “Questions are the answer!” He digs into the three types of questions in his “need analysis” with the goal to establish trust.

This is Ziglar Sales 101 and what amazes me is how in today’s world, so few people and companies know and follow successful sales structure. From Zig’s message I asked this question to the Ziglar Show audience, “What question(s) reveal whether someone is a good prospect for your product or service?” Many replies and I did a lot of questioning back to clarify people’s products and services amongst different industries and how they are literally using questions in their businesses. And some of course who are not doing it well. For all the business owners and salespeople in the Ziglar audience, this is a show for you! And if you know Ziglar and our belief that everyone is in sales, as sales is influence...then you know the show is for everyone listening.

787: Financial success as the means to sustain your mission | Habits with Janelle Bruland

Podcast cover

Entrepreneurs are notoriously mission driven. They do what they do for personal reasons and to serve others. Finances are often not their primary focus, and as such, can often be neglected until it handicaps the overall effort. Janelle Bruland was a single mom committed to only working part time and here in our habits show she shares she prioritized financial success as the means to sustain the mission. It sounds so elementary but as a lifetime entrepreneur who has lived in a world of entrepreneurs, it’s amazing how often this is missed. And I’m raising myself as a chief violator. Janelle was my guest in show 785 where we discussed the gap between you and your highest potential, a primary message in her new book, “The Success Life.” You can connect with Janelle at Thesuccesslie.com where she has a Companion workbook to her book, and find her “Intentional Leadership podcast” wherever you get your podcasts.

Podcast cover

Imagine being nine months pregnant and deciding to start a business. A business you did not know much about. Years later you become a single mom to by then, three daughters. You are a woman, a mom, and a business owner. This is not conventional and it is not easy. This is the story of Janelle Bruland and the fire she lived through gave her significant insight into human potential and unconventional business practices, such as owning a thriving business and never putting in overtime hours. Not even putting in full time hours. That’s right, she’s done it all on part time hours, as a single parent. The primary motive for starting her business was so she could be a devoted mother. Janelle came to me from Tom Ziglar who show said, “We have to have her on the show!” She has a new book titled, “The Success Lie,” - 5 Simple Truths to Overcome Overwhelm and Achieve Peace of Mind. Today Janelle has 500 employees and 250 subcontractors as part of her facility management company team and is on the Inc. 5,000 fastest growing companies.

So I posted a second question, “What actions, behaviors, and/or thoughts help, and hurt, your approval of yourself?” Tom Ziglar and I read through many of the responses and talked about the convergence of these two important issues.

Podcast cover
Read more

“If you’re not at your best mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, you're nothing for your family, you're depleted for your customers, you're unhelpful to your neighbors, and you're empty for society. Build a strong self-relationship because that is the key to every other relationship. It’s not selfish, it’s It’s selfless.” This is our Habits show and we are with Robin Sharma, my guest from episode 781 where our focus was Personal Mastery. In this show, the second spoke of relationships, Robin brought a significant paradigm shift. To strengthen and deepen relationships with others, he shared we must first have a world class relationship with ourselves. I’ve never heard it put quite that way and it’s inspired me to further elevate my expectations of my self image. This and much more in the episode. Find Robin and his new book, “The 5am Club” at RobinSharma.com.

782: How to matter to someone

Podcast cover
Read more

Your primary desire is to matter to other people. If you want a raise or a promotion, you must matter to someone in charge. If you want a relationship you must matter to the person you are pursuing. If you want friends and any companionship, you must matter to them. So how do you matter? In this show I believe we have your best tactic. Give people what they most want. Encouragement. Everyone including yourself wants to hear positive feedback regarding themselves. We all want it and some are desperate for it. When we think of the word “encouragement” we generally don’t give it the gravity it deserves. Using it is literally harnessing a superpower. We’re selfish beings. Be selfish. Encourage people and matter to them. See what opportunities arise. NOTE: This show did not start out with a focus of encouragement. It was a Q&A show with Scott Stearman regarding our influence on others. Scott was my guest in show 777 where we discussed just that...how we are literally influencing others. But briefly into the show we got on the topic of encouragement and I was hit with the reality that Scott is a king of encouragement. His father was a king of encouragement. Zig Ziglar was a king and chief purveyor of encouragement. What could possibly be a more important topic. What followed was I believe and hope, us making a case for the power encouragement can be in elevating our own lives, as we elevate others.

781: Personal Mastery | Robin Sharma

Podcast cover
Read more

What is more important than mastering one’s self? The world acclaims those who have mastered a skill and we glorify people for what they can do. What we fail to recognize is the necessary mastery of self that preceded the act the person is on stage for. Did you get that? The performance, whether on stage or an a sports field or on camera or in the workplace, is the result of a level of mastery of self. It is not the most talented who win. We’ve all seen great talent go to waste because the person couldn’t pull their act together. It’s some talent and skill that is honed through the daily fire called discipline and habit and routine. Mastery of self. In this show I bring you Robin Sharma and mastery of self is his muse. He wrote an intriguing book from decades of his teaching that to boil down is a playbook for self mastery. It’s written in story form and I’ll admit, it had me wanting to go back in again and again to hang out with the incredibly inspiring characters. In this episode Robin and I talk about the root issues of mastering ourselves. Robin Sharma is a globally respected humanitarian, bestselling author. His new book, The 5AM Club, is currently one of the bestselling books in the world and his influence is significant, he has 4.1 million followers on Facebook alone. 

Robin is widely considered as one of the world's top leadership experts and if you search for him you’ll see his clients include many Fortune 100 companies, famed billionaires, professional sports superstars, music icons and members of royalty. Robin books have sold over 15,000,000 copies in 92+ languages making him one of the most widely read authors alive. Honestly I find interest in anyone who is positively influencing so many people and I’m incredibly grateful I invited him to join me on the show. You can find Robin, his new book, “The 5AM Club” and all he has to offer at robinsharma.com

780: The valiant struggle to rise above mediocrity

Podcast cover
Read more

Sometimes it’s just tiring to go against the flow. We want to belong with and trust the society we live in. Sometimes we may even just want to chill out and be average. But then we realize we are answering the call of responsibility to grow and evolve and strive toward our full potential and it requires doing more than the average. In this show we hear a four minute message from Zig Ziglar on this topic, and from it I posted this question on Facebook, “Having more than average means doing more than average. Being counter cultural. Going against the flow. Do you ever feel tired of the effort?.” Tom Ziglar joined me to talk through the comments and what you will hear is lots of commiserating on the struggle, but also the motives for continuing on. I believe you’ll gain great encouragement from this episode for your own above average pursuits.

779: Asking God if this is your assignment | Habits with Scott Stearman

Podcast cover
Read more

I want to figure out what is healthiest, best, right, and true and just simply to that over and over again. Simple. Black and white. But alas, the world, humanity, and circumstances don’t often play along with these rules. Often we must discern what is best in one particular moment and the next and one may require an opposite response even though it is a very similar circumstance. In episode 777 I brought you master sculptor Scott Stearman and a very deep discussion on faith and influence. His new book is titled, “What Does Your Jesus Look Like,” we discussed influence overall and what perspective we are all painting with our lives? This is our Habits episode and in the Spiritual spoke Scott shares a perspective of seeking God’s will in specific circumstances and how he has learned to find peace in moment by moment discernment. It’s a big concept friends. Find Scott at scottstearman.com and check out his book, “What Does Your Jesus Look Like?” which was the focal point of our talk in episode 777.

778: If you were paid $50k to try something, what would you do?

Podcast cover
Read more

“What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” It’s a pithy quote we often find on placards in gift shops. I have one on a pottery disc hanging by our kitchen sink. In reality we can always fail. So I came at it a different way and asked the Ziglar audience this question, “If you were offered a $50k grant to try something growth oriented in your personal or professional life, what would it be?” The attempt is the same, to remove reasons we have for not going after pursuits we desire. In episode 773 my guest was Jennifer Allwood, author of the new book, “Fear Is Not The Boss Of You.” I’ve mentioned before we received more positive feedback on this episode than any other for quite a while. I had Jennifer come back to talk through some of the wealth of dreams and aspirations people shared, which they would pursue if provided with not only $50k, but just an impetus to help take away some of the real and perceived obstacles, such as money, and fear. This is an incredible, live coaching session with Jennifer. And as you’ll hear us discuss in the show, you can check out her large coaching platform at https://creatorsinnercircle.com/

777: What picture are you painting with your life? | Scott Stearman

Podcast cover
Read more

Tune in for a profound message. You are painting a picture to everyone you have contact with, at every moment of your life, with every action. What does the picture represent? The concept of how and what you are influencing is relevant to all, though we also go deep into Christianity. Scott Stearman is a renowned sculptor whose life size sculptures are the focal point of many military compounds and faith based institutions and universities across America. He has a message he is now delivering on stages across America and in a new book asking, “What Does Your Jesus Look Like?” For those of you who claim Christ, this will hit you in your heart, and right between the eyes. Again however, the message is relevant for anyone who desires to have a positive influence in and on the world. As the saying goes, we judge ourselves by our intentions. Others judge us by our actions. And friends, your actions and behavior bely who you are at the core. What you truly believe. Is who and how you are lifting others up and inspiring them to more? As you will hear in the show, Scott is more than an esteemed guest I wanted for the show. I have closely and intimately done life with him for nearly 17 years. This show is similar to many conversations he and I have had through the years over a cup of coffee. Again, if you care to truly have a positive influence on anyone, and even more so if you claim Christ...I implore you, don’t miss this show. Connect with Scott Stearman and check out his dramatic sculptures and new book, “What Does Your Jesus Look Like,” at scottstearman.com

776: Earning trust in your business

Podcast cover
Read more

The greatest asset your business and you can have is people’s trust. However, most everyone believes they are trustworthy, yet in truth, few employ the tangible actions to actually gain trust. So many people claim terms like “integrity” and “honesty” or expect their good intent to shine through. To actually gain trust and customer loyalty takes specific methodologies which are fairly simple to put into action, and very, very rare. We kick off the show with a two and a half minute message from Zig Ziglar on gaining trust in your business. Then I asked the Ziglar audience this question, “Do you have an example of a business or business person that has earned your trust. And if you have a business, how do you earn people's trust?” Tom Ziglar joined me for this discussion and here is what happened. In the first 20 minutes, Tom weighs in on how trust is being impacted in the workplace due to the current COVID-19 crisis. Then we dig into some of the comments. At about the hour mark we land on, “exceeding expectations.” Don’t miss this segment, even if you skip forward to it. It’s a massive opportunity for you. And here this. Your good intentions are not enough. Expertly meeting your customers expectations are not enough. Don’t fall for the trap of thinking your heart will shine through you and your work. There is behavioral psychology at work that needs tangible anchors to hold on to. We aim to give you some of those in this episode.

775: Slowing down to speed up, Habits with Jennifer Allwood

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve heard that before, consider it again. This is a common thread we’ve had on the show. Busyness and hurry are not producing good works. The faster we run the slower we produce. Or at least, the shallower we produce. If your life is a blur of lots of shallow work, then speed may be your gig. But to do the great work, the deep work, the valuable and profitable work, we are learning speed kills. This is our Habit’s episode with Jennifer Allwood, my guest from show 773 where we discussed, “Showing up for your own life,” a primary message from her new book, “Fear Is Not The Boss Of You.” In this show as we discuss the Career spoke, Jennifer shares her focus right now amongst success with her book, podcast, and coaching organization, is slowing down to speed up. With so many opportunities she knows there is always a danger of imploding. Her rudder is, “If it’s costing me my peace, it’s too expensive.” This and more in the episode.

774: Control the pace of your life

Podcast cover
Read more

That word, “busy”, means, having a great deal to do. Do you have a great deal to do? Are you enjoying the pace? Are you creating your best from the go-go-go grind? I think we are in a special place in time where busy is losing its luster. Not because we aren’t capable of maintaining it, but rather we’re learning it provides lesser, not greater value. Instead of the busy person seeming more important, I’m starting to see them as poor decision makers and living life at a shallower level. Actually I can own this for myself. When I am increasingly busy, I realize I’m at best just maintaining life, I’m not creating and growing it. In show 767 I talked in depth with pastor and author John Mark Comer and his message, “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry.” It was from this discussion I asked the Ziglar audience this question, “On a scale from 1-10, how "hurried" is your life? If it's high (10 = espresso squirrel), what feels like the main culprit? If it's low (1 = sedated tree sloth), what has helped?” You can join these weekly discussions by finding and friending me on Facebook at AgentKMiller.com. Tom Ziglar joined me to read through and discuss many of the comments. Really insightful, to say the least.

773: Showing up for your own life, with Jennifer Allwood

Podcast cover
Read more

Fear and being stuck. Everyone can relate to those realities and they are not where we want to be. Jennifer Allwood truly provides a breath of fresh air to this issue, and she does it by relating, commiserating, and having compassion. You can not fully eradicate fear from your life. But you can manage it and move forward anyway. Jennifer cites you can have emotions, feel emotions, recognize emotions, but still do big, hard, and scary things in spite of those emotions. Jennifer uses her social media following of 500K people, her podcast, The Jennifer Allwood Show, coaching groups with thousands of members, and now her #1 best selling book, Fear is Not the Boss of You, to help others do for their businesses what she has done with hers. Jennifer is also steadfast in using her business as a way to serve God and my family. Her goal is to use the tools so readily available—social media, email, the Internet—as the way to make this happen. She knows getting unstuck, pushing through the overwhelm, and doing things in spite of fear are key in growing any business. Friends, this was a fun and poignant discussion and I’m proud to bring Jennifer and this message to you. You can connect with Jennifer at Jenniferallwood.com where you’ll find her new book, “Fear Is Not The Boss Of You”.

772: The positives and negatives from COVID-19

Podcast cover
Read more

We are in an unprecedented global crisis with the coronavirus. Nearly every American and human is being impacted. I asked this short question on Facebook, “Would you share a positive and a negative regarding how COVID-19 is affecting your life right now?” In just over 24 hours we have in depth comments from 76 people. There was very little sugar coating, but some distinct threads regarding loss of money as the negative and down time and time for relationships as a positive. Really interesting to hear the candid accounts. The question we posed was...what normal do you want to go back to? Is there any current change you desire to retain? I think you’ll find both confirmation for what you are dealing with and inspiration for some benefits you may better take hold of.

771: Fight for deep work blocks, Habits with John Mark Comer

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you able to concentrate? Focus? Think critically and creatively? In episode #767 I brought you John Mark Comer and we discussed the profound message in his book, “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry.” An issue we discussed was the scattered attention caused by the massive distractions of today’s world. What with our electronic devices and social media, our attention spans are at an all time low. The consequences are, as John Mark cites, we are chipping away at our capacity for concentration and contemplation. This is our Habits show and I walked through the seven spokes on the Ziglar Wheel of life with John Mark. In the Career spoke he said a priority is fighting for deep work blocks. He is a pastor and writer, so that may not come as a shock to you. My question for us all is, who does NOT need deep work blocks? Or just blocks of deep time in general? Deep time to be at peace. To think critically and creatively. How much would your life benefit to stop and think deeply about any aspect of it? This and more in this show. You can find John Mark’s book at https://johnmarkcomer.com/ or wherever you buy books.
