Week 3- More Cow Bell (feeling)

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED THIS WEEK

The Greatest Salesman in the World                                                                                               by Og Mandino 

This week Og started out by confusing me a bit.  He states that we don’t have the luxury of living forever, yet we must be patience like nature. The mighty olive tree requires a hundred years to mature. Obviously,  I don’t have a hundred years to secure the required knowledge to be the greatest of salesman. Apparently, I don’t have the experience to realize greatness because I have already submitted to ignorance and self-pity.  Then he says that unnecessary knowledge and meaningless experience is a handicap.  And experience is wasted on dead men.

After reading this several times, something finally came trickling out of my “Subby” (subconscious mind).  When I was in college I worked in a rib joint.  Sometimes I would be commissioned to train new wait staff.  Ironically,  I discovered that the people with the LEAST amount of restaurant experience were the best students because they had no previous “bad” habits.  I learned a long time ago that bad habits can only to be cleaned out by replacing them with good habits.  I concluded that I am wise to embrace and take the necessary time to digest this new knowledge presented by Og in these scrolls.

 The Master Keys -Part Three

One of the big messages of this week was the importance of adding FEELING into things that we do and say.  I am working,  editing and tweaking my DMP (Definite Major Purpose).  Infusing FEELING(s) into my DMP this week has been my focus.  I am incorporating words like: energized, ecstatic, liberation, joy, pride, gratitude, which I find is stirring something up inside of me while I read my DMP three times a day.  I don’t know exactly what it is yet, but I am liking it.  

*I caught myself this week saying aloud “Opps !…Stop that’s my old Blueprint”
