Top Performance (Book Review)


By Benjamin H. Liles

          I do get the point Zig Ziglar makes in this book Revell re-released, and it's one I believe Ziglar learned from the life of Solomon and Paul, the apostle: "A generous soul will prosper, and he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed" (Proverbs 11:25) and "if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is giving, let him give generously; if it is leading, let him lead with diligence; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully" (Romans 12:8).

          What I don't see right now, in terms of my blog/website, can change in the future. Because of the fact that I do choose to show mercy and compassion as I believe Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior of my life, would desire of me I can see the possibilities the way Ziglar had faith to "respond" over "react." I get that now. While I did find the book a bit hard to read, at first, due to being tired I see the motivational way he helped tons of others. He poured his life into seeing other people succeed, both in terms of integrity and character.

         It's the same as he puts into all the books he's ever been able to publish as a result. Men of faith always take action, and the consequence is being able to see what James, the brother of Jesus meant when he said, "But someone will say, 'You have faith, and I have works.' Show me your faith without works, and I will show you faith from my works" (James 2:18). Faith should produce a work both within and outside of us. That's the biggest reason, aside from Top Performance not being easy for me to read, that I leave it with high remarks. I received this book complimentary from Revell for an honest and fair review.
