“Nobody can be Zig Ziglar on stage, but everyone can be Zig Ziglar off stage.” — Tom Ziglar

Tom Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar Inc., has been immersed in personal development since he was born. As the son of legendary motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, Tom often traveled with his father from a young age. In this episode—a Takeover Tuesday with Dermot Buffini—Tom shares what it was like growing up as Zig Ziglar’s son, from Zig’s commitment to his faith and his relationship with his wife, Jean, to how the family grieved the loss of Tom’s sister and supported Zig following a brain injury. He also delves into Ziglar Family’s 7 Day Challenge—the free program designed to empower families to thrive. You’ll learn the two lessons learned from grief, how good habits and positivity can become ingrained in your DNA, and Tom’s secret for starting each day with the right mindset. By the end of the episode, you’ll feel inspired to tap into your inner Zig Ziglar each day.

“Nobody can be Zig Ziglar on stage, but everyone can be Zig Ziglar off stage.” — Tom Ziglar

“Dad’s priority was never his vessel, he didn’t care. What he cared about was putting truth in somebody else’s life.” — Tom Ziglar

“Plan in advance for how you’ll handle that day before it happens.” — Tom Ziglar

“Your input determines your outlook. Your outlook determines your output and your output determines your outcome.” — Zig Ziglar

“I would’ve given up had I not been driven by a force that was not my own.”

— Mitch Albom

Before best-selling author Mitch Albom was a successful sports writer, he was a musician in New York City. After answering an ad in the newspaper for writer, his journalism career began. In this episode, Brian Buffini interviews Mitch to learn about his story, from the beginning of his journalism career taking whatever assignments he could find to reconnecting with his former professor, Morrie Schwartz, and spending time with him each week, in what would eventually become the best-seller, “Tuesdays with Morrie.” Mitch delves into his perspective on the current dynamics of the sports and news industries and shares his secret to getting started in any industry, why it’s essential to be ambitious for the right reasons and how reconnecting with his mentor changed his life forever. By the end of the episode, you’ll have a renewed perspective on life.

 

Inspirational quotes from today’s interview:

“You absorb creativity by observing it.” — Mitch Albom

“How do you get started? Get busy” — Mitch Albom

“I was blessed to have death come into my life at a young age. Watching Morrie die in front of me and seeing what was important to him and what wasn’t important to him was the greatest gift I could have had at that young age.” — Mitch Albom

“He was so full of love and light. I said I want to be like this.” — Mitch Albom

“I would’ve given up had I not been driven by a force that was not my own.” — Mitch Albom

“Ambition by itself is not bad. It’s when it becomes the only thing you focus on. You have to separate the ambitious act from the ambitious emotion.” — Mitch Albom

“You’re not getting to know the athlete; you’re getting to know the image of the athlete.” — Mitch Albom

“Writing is the last refuge of sports.” — Mitch Albom

“We live in the world of clicks now.” — Mitch Albom
