During my search for a powerful quote, I recently learned of a talented writer and business expert by the name of Og Mandino. Though he is no longer living physically, I’m convinced his work continues to live on and touch many people’s lives.
I found the wisdom he shared to be truly amazing.
So…for today, I want to share with you 10 powerful “scrolls” from his book, The Greatest Salesman in the World.
I’m sure that if you apply each of these self-affirmations to your daily life, you will definitely succeed in ways you may have never imagined.
Why not try saying each one to yourself everyday? Remember words have POWER to help spark change.
Og Mandino’s 10 Scrolls for a Happy, Enjoyable Life
1.TODAY I BEGIN A NEW LIFE.
Be willing to form good habits and become their slave.
2. I WILL GREET THIS DAY WITH LOVE IN MY HEART.
I will look with love, I will act with love, I will speak with love, and I will react with love.
3.I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.
I won’t stop before the fortieth blow.
4.I AM NATURES GREATEST MIRACLE.
I know I’m somebody, ’cause God made me unique
5.I WILL LIVE THIS DAY AS IF IT IS MY LAST.
Can sand flow upward in the hourglass? Can I relive the errors of yesterday and correct them? Can I call back yesterday’s wounds and make them whole?
6.TODAY I WILL BE MASTER OF MY EMOTIONS.
Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
7.I WILL LAUGH AT THE WORLD.
No living creature can laugh, except man. Man is most comical when he takes himself too seriously.
8.TODAY I WILL MULTIPLY MY VALUE A HUNDREDFOLD.
Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.
9.I WILL ACT NOW.
My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, and my goals are impossible. Success will not wait. If I delay she will become betrothed to another and lost me forever. This is the time. This is the place.
10.I WILL PRAY FOR WISDOM.
Wisdom means I have mastered the art of living.
