Keep an Attitude of Gratitude
Years ago, I was the public relations director for motivational guru, Zig Ziglar. At the time, he was arguably the best-known, most loved speaker in the world. When audience members heard Zig, they witnessed a man chockfull of energy, vitality and joy. Having worked closely with him and knowing him well, I can tell you that the Zig you saw on stage was the real Zig Ziglar. In fact, I can’t remember ever seeing him when he was not happy and upbeat.
The Zig I knew was one carbonated guy.
Every time Zig answered his home phone, he picked up the receiver and said with gusto, “This is Jean Ziglar’s happy husband!” And he meant it.
Awhile back one of Zig’s closest friends and I were discussing Zig’s aura of happiness. “Completely genuine,” his friend said. “I have never seen him down.” Then he added thoughtfully, but with love, “Hardly what you’d call normal.”
“What’s Zig’s secret?” I asked.
“I think,” he said, “it comes down to feeling grateful. Never met a guy more grateful than Zig. Period.”
You’d think anyone that grateful must have had an easy life. But that’s not so.
Zig started out poor. Dirt poor. His father died when he was six, leaving his mother to raise 11 children alone. The family was virtually penniless. Yet despite their poverty, Mrs. Ziglar instilled a strong work ethic in her children and raised them to believe that both she and God loved them. She also instructed her children to practice saying “please” and “thank you.” Those lessons stuck. Her formula of work, love and faith made their difficult lives easier. Gratitude made their lives enjoyable.
Zig once told me, “When we neglect to require our children to say ‘thank you’ when someone gives them a gift or does something for them, we raise ungrateful children who are highly unlikely to be content. Without gratitude, happiness is rare.With gratitude, the odds for happiness go up dramatically.

You Can’t Send A Duck to Eagle School

Here is an excerpt from You Can’t Send a Duck to Eagle School by Mac Anderson:

When hiring someone, start with the premise that attitudes are contagious. Then ask yourself one question … is theirs worth catching?
I’ve been in business for over 30 years and I’ve come to realize the difference in success and failure is not how you look, not how you dress, not how much you’re educated,  but…  HOW YOU THINK! In my business life, I’ve watched many very intelligent people fail miserably because they have a negative attitude; and, I’ve also observed just as many people with average intelligence soar to success because of positive attitudes.

Southwest Airlines’ VP of People is often asked the question: How do you get your people to be so nice? Her answer is always the same… “WE HIRE NICE PEOPLE.” It sounds almost too simple to feel important, but “hiring nice people” has been the cornerstone of their amazing success in a highly competitive industry. They understand their competitors may be able to match their price and copy their business model, however, they feel that the spirit and the attitude of their employees will be extremely difficult to replicate.

And “Hiring Right” is a key responsibility for every leader at every level!

You Can’t Send a Duck to Eagle School will inspire you to inspire others. It is loaded with stories, quotes, and “nuggets of wisdom” for any leader or aspiring leader. Today, WalkTheTalk.Com is offering You Can’t Send a Duck to Eagle School for a special price of $12!
