Today we hear from Zig Ziglar, talking about the power of encouragement in our lives. From Zig’s message I asked on Facebook, “Have you ever received specific recognition or encouragement that literally elevated your perception of yourself? That made you want to really become better?” We got just stellar, real life stories that Tom Ziglar and I talked through.  But let me right up front address the issue that comes to mind for many people who are thinking, “That is great! Of course, encouragement and recognition are powerful, but you can’t make people encourage you!” Well, we talk about this.

Tom Ziglar actually has four key points on how to get encouragement that we cover right at the end of the show. Of course, we talk about GIVING encouragement. But this isn’t just a topic around a good thing to do, it’s about a vital ingredient we need and can have. Be intrigued by that statement, and join us.
