“I greet this day with love in my heart”

I am learning that when I come from a place of genuine love in the long run most barriers to selling will melt. It’s not so much about how I look, dress or speak, but more about the value and the benefits that I emit; with love and sincerity.

I am looking at obstacles with a different perspective also. For example, a rainy day is not so bad if I focus on the fact that it is vital to the growth of so many important things (a person can NOT live very long without water). I love to go fishing / boating and lakes, streams and rivers need water !

“I greet this day with love in my heart”. Everyone has qualities to be admired even though they may be concealed. Og writes: “With love I tear down the wall of suspicion and hate which they have built round their hearts and in its place will I build bridges so that my love may enter their souls”. I believe that this philosophy of building bridges so that love may enter souls was part of the message of these three influential men our time: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Gandhi.

The Beatles said it best:   All you need is LOVE.

Some vocabulary:

Laud- to praise.
