Winning At Home Like You Win At Work with Mark Timm – Episode 194 of The Action Catalyst Podcast

Winning

When Ziglar Family CEO, Mark Timm, heard Zig Ziglar speak for the first time almost 3 decades ago, it changed his life direction. Mr. Ziglar’s timeless principles inspired Mark to start more than a dozen successful businesses. But when his business success didn’t transfer to his family life, Mark and his wife Ann got intentional about applying those time-tested Ziglar principles to leading and growing a successful, blended family with six children. Today as CEO of Ziglar Family, Mark passionately shares the Ziglar principles that have worked so well for his family to empower millions of other families around the world. Ziglar principles have guided Mark to significant achievements, from becoming a national FFA officer as a teen, to becoming a highly successful entrepreneur and starting more than 12 businesses.  He has spoken professionally for over 25 years, giving thousands of speeches to over one million people in 48 states. But his highest priority is to keep his family as the most important thing. Together with his wife, Ann, he is proud to parent six of the coolest kids on the planet — three boys (Markus, Kavyn, Zachary) and three girls (Mary, Cassandra & Grace). They live near Indianapolis, Indiana. When not helping families in the Thrive community, Mark enjoys flying airplanes, traveling with his family, and engaging in fun outdoor activities with his kids.

Why most Fail but you will Triumph

If you’re reading this then chances are you will become a person of triumph.

Why?

Because you are doing one of the most critical things that most people don’t do.

You are learning.

You are reading.

You are growing.

As I look back on my life and career, I realize that I have always been rabidly hungry to learn new information to make myself better.

We often read to try and find answers to what makes people successful but we sometimes overlook a critical component.

It has less to do with what you are reading and everything to do with the fact that you are reading!

It’s about being hungry.

It’s about being coachable.

It’s about being dedicated to your own self-education and mental stimulation.

That’s what successful triumphant people do.

At the end of the day a person’s success seems to have much less to do with what they know or what talents they have and much more to do with whether or not they have the drive to learn.

Thank you for going on the journey with me. Thank you for subscribing to these posts and for sharing them so regularly with your friends. Thank you for your continued dedication in coming back here again and again and again to simply…

Read.

I not only value the gift of your attention.

I value you. And because you are here, I know for sure that…

You are rare.

You are special.

You are different.

And you are one of the few who is destined for greatness.
