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 into practice these vital principles.

Praise For Embrace the Struggle: Living Life on Life's Terms

"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." -- Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager® and Lead Like Jesus

"Zig Ziglar's Embrace the Struggle, written with his daughter Julie, is timely reading for me. As my wife and I grow older we know we will have to leave our home, where we have lived for over fifty years. But with Zig's guidance we can Embrace our Struggle with energy and with hope." -- John Sherrill, roving editor, Guideposts magazine

"My mood-swing patients who listen to Ziglar the most do the best. Embrace the Struggle is for everyone who faces challenges, whether medical or from life's stressors. Facing an unpleasant reality with a positive attitude can make all the difference. Zig explains his highly successful approach to traumatic brain injury with courage, common sense, and his usual humor." -- Leland M. Heller, MD

"Zig Ziglar understands life including its struggles and setbacks. If you want to live an abundant life by embracing all that God gives -- read this book written by one of the greatest Christians I've ever known." -- Jack Graham, pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church

"Zig has one more valuable lesson to teach each of us. Living in the moment, right now, with the people you love and for a cause you believe in -- this is what matters. He is an inspiration and a national treasure, and each of us is better off because Zig Ziglar cares about making the world a better place." -- Seth Godin, author, Tribes
