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.
