HOW TO REALIZE THAT CONVICTION IS THE KEY



By:  Z. Ziglar


The late Mary Crowley frequently commented that one person with a conviction would do more than a hundred who only had an interest.  Commitment is the key to staying the course and completing the project.  Conviction always precedes commitment.  

When we’re convinced as a salesperson that we are selling a marvelous product, our demeanor, body language, voice inflection, facial expressions – everything – communicate to the prospect that we fervently believe we’re offering something of value.  Many times the prospect will buy not because of their belief in the product, goods or service, but because of the belief of the salesperson. 

Our feelings are transferable.  Courage can be and frequently is transferred to the other person.  Convictions are the same.  The teacher who fervently believes in the message he or she delivers will persuade the student by the very depth of that conviction.  One of my favorite Mary Kay Ash quotes is, “Many people have gone a lot farther than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.”  In short, their confidence, born of someone else’s conviction, had enabled them to “make it.”  Conviction comes from knowledge and a “feeling” that what we’re teaching, doing, selling, etc., is absolutely right.  When we transfer that conviction to those in our sphere of influence, they and society benefit.

Show me a person with deep convictions and I’ll show you a person who’s made a commitment to deliver those convictions to others.  Show me a great leader and I’ll show you a person of deep convictions who is able to attract followers because of those convictions.  I’ll also show you a person who is happy in what they’re doing and far more successful than those who do not have those convictions.  Buy that idea; develop those convictions; make that commitment!

Our family enjoys the fun andrefreshment of water slides and lazy rivers during hot summer vacations. At most water parks, there are also one or two spots where large buckets hang overhead filling little by little with water. The closer the bucket gets to being full, the larger the crowd grows beneath in anticipation—children and adults alike wait for the outpouring. Then SUDDENLY the bucket tips and a great flood of refreshment crashes down on all below!
In the Book of Revelation, the Bible describes golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints (Revelation 5:8). In other words, the prayers of God's people collectively fill heavenly bowls with sweet aroma, much like the burnt offerings did in days of old. In Revelation 8, we discover what these bowls are used for:
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter w…
