WHAT I HAVE LEARNED THIS WEEK
The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino
So far I am really digging this book. It’s more of an exercise than a reading. I am reading the first scroll three times per day. I like reading the paragraphs aloud even though it is suggested that I read the assigned chapter in silence first thing in the morning and again after lunch, then aloud at bedtime.
The phrase: Failure no longer is my payment for struggle, threw me off at first, then I figured out that to me it means SUCCESS is NOW my payment for struggle instead of failure…Ah ha. I reject failure because now I am prepared to accept the wisdom and principles that will be presented in these scrolls.
The Master Keys -Part Two
In Part Two the conscious and subconscious minds are discussed. I learned that the subconscious mind makes all the decisions. The value of the subconscious mind is greater than I had any idea (at first). The subconscious mind controls and regulates our heart and our lung functions for example. It never rest or sleeps.
The Subconscious mind (the Subby) is much larger than The Conscious mind. The Subby is the equivalent to the size of an elephant and the Conscious mind that of an ant. Although, the Conscious mind is deemed “The watchman at the gate” because basically the Subby “listens” to the “Watchman” unconditionally.
So using the power of auto suggestion, the Subconscious mind receives any submissions as true. We are employing “Chore Cards” this week in order to start training our Subconscious mind with positive easy to medium achievements. However, the “Subby” never sleeps, never rest unlike the “Watchman” that is “off guard” at times. I am learning how better to manage this powerful “Watchman”.
