One of the leading stars in the “positive thinking” movement, Zig Ziglar has made a career out of telling people how to have a positive attitude, no matter what their circumstances are. But when a fall down a stairway onto a marble floor leaves him with a head injury, he is challenged with how to put the principles he’d been speaking about into practice. Ziglar’s willingness to be transparent has him back writing and speaking with renewed energy before audiences in the tens of thousands to show that life on life’s terms is still well worth living. Embrace the Struggle affirms the validity of the principles Ziglar has held true his entire life and includes not only his account of living positively through difficult circumstances; it also includes heartwarming stories of real people who encouraged him with how they put these vital principles into practice.

  • “For decades Zig Ziglar has been a champion of positive thinking. On the sixty-ninth anniversary of his twenty-first birthday, he declared he was ‘refiring’ rather than retiring. And despite a brain injury that's left him with short-term memory loss, he's still fired up. Anyone facing tough circumstances will find comfort and inspiration in Zig's encouraging message.”
