Every day we face concerns and trials in our lives. Real issues that truly impact us. The answer is not merely “be positive!” and paint on a happy face. It is far deeper. In this show, we hear a message from Zig Ziglar about these very real challenges in our lives. He discusses the need to acknowledge where we are, how we truly can grow in adversity, and the necessity to grow to respond instead of react. From Zig’s message, I posted this question to the Ziglar audience, “Which of the following areas most tries to creep up on you and bring you down if you don’t stay on top of your inspiration and positivity? 1) Circumstances: work, money, health, 2) Relationships: spouse, family, coworkers, boss, friend, 3) Past struggles: trauma, labels, handicap, 4) Purpose: faith, hope, meaning in work and love and life. Michelle Prince joined me to talk through your comments for yet another show that really hits home for all of us.
