Day 111 How to Lead by THE BOOK: Zig Ziglar on Leadership!

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Some of you were able to attend the webcast I did yesterday at the Zig Ziglar studios: “Ten Proverbs, Parables, & Principles to Sell More of Anything NOW!” If you’d like the audio version, this link should allow you to listen to the program: MP3s/10272010ProverbsAndPrinciplesToHelpYouSellMoreDaveAnderson96K.mp3

Rhonda and I were able to visit over lunch with Zig, Jean (his wife), Julie (his daughter), and Tom (his son). At 83 years young, Zig is still as full of charm, wit, and wisdom as ever before! Despite a fall a few years back that caused a brain injury and occasional short-term memory loss, Zig still sets the standard for excellence in speaking and writing. He’s written 29 books and is working on more! Jean and he have been married over 60 years, and they still absolutely adore one another. They serve as incredible role models for couples of all ages.

Zig’s life verse is Romans 8:28. When you read it, you’ll understand how he has responded so admirably to the injury he suffered, and will find encouragement for how to respond to your own struggles. I’ll write about the importance of “Life Verses” in, How to Lead by THE BOOK. In fact, I’ll cover the importance of developing spiritual disciplines in-depth. After spending a day with Zig and his team, I can write more resolutely about the long-term benefits spiritual disciplines have on one’s leadership over the course of a life time. And I can use no finer example than the life of Zig Ziglar to make my point.
