The Greatest Salesman In The World- 10 Mlm Concepts.
As individuals we seem to be becoming more hard nosed and disrusting every day and it is actually a terrific privilege to discover a person who can penetrate through the superficial sheet of crust and communicate directly with our hearts.
Definitely Og Mandino is one of these extraordinary individuals, and his signature booklet “The Greatest Salesman in the World” is one of the best selling books in history.
In substance the heart of the article, is that as people we should consistently strive to overwhelm the negative and self defeating self images we hold and rather than let our present habits create our life, knowledge new preferred habits that will create the lifestyle we desire.
For the majority of people the merging of the scholastic method and cultural upbringing has caused a poor self- image and low self-esteem; as the sub-conscious mind will attain precisely what we solicit ( by way of manifesting our most dominant thoughts) is it any wander we achieve only a fragment of what we are capable?
Discovering himself an alcoholic, and on the fringe of suicide, Mandino stumbled upon self-help and motivational books. After a comprehensive and intimate exploration of the mindset he committed his views to paper and in doing so positively impacted the lives of millions, his books having sold upwards of 50 million copies, and been translated in 25+ languages.
We definitely handicap ourselves with our own limiting thoughts and in an endeavor to repair the damage, Mandino outlines the purified wisdom of the ages into 10 laws (scrolls).
He recommends reading each scroll, three times a day for 30 consecutive days, the logic being to by-pass the conscious mind, replace our bad habits with good ones and in the process enhance our low estimation of ourselves (self-esteem).
Yes this appears easy enough, but it is a 10 month undertaking, and by adhering to the task one more productive habit is formed: self discipline.
These 10 laws in essence are basic and common sense, but if read aloud (as advocated in the 3rd reading of the day) they resonate, deep within, and an intuitive understanding of the point is understood.
As an overview of the essential meaning in each scroll:
Scroll I: Today I begin a new life
Scroll II: I will greet this day with love in my heart
Scroll III: I will persist until I succeed
Scroll IV: I am Natures’ greatest miracle
Scroll V: I will live this day as if it is my last.
Scroll VI: Today I will be master of my emotions
Scroll VII: I will laugh at the world
ScrollVIII: Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.
Scroll IX: My dreams are worthless; my plans are dust (unless)…I act now.
Scroll X: I will pray for guidance.
For the person who is genuine in their quest for progression, the implementation of Mandino’s 10 month plan may seem difficult, but it is an undertaking which will repay manyfold the effort and willpower necessary to accomplish the task.
If, in the disquiet of life you miss a day, don’t beat your self up just start the entire routine again.
