I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable. I am the end product of thousands of years of evolution; therefore, I am better equipped in both mind and body than all the emperors and wise men who preceded me. But my skills, my mind, my heart, and my body will stagnate, rot, and die lest I put them to good use. I have unlimited potential. Only a small portion of my brain do I employ; only a paltry amount of muscles do I flex. A hundredfold or more can I increase my accomplishments of yesterday and this I will do, beginning today.
The preceding words of Og Mandino are in Scroll IV in The Greatest Salesman in the World. As my company expands nationally this month, it is very comforting to know that previously, I only used a small portion of my potential. I am improving my skills and efficiency to enable myself to take advantage of all of the opportunity on the table as we expand nationally and offer new mobile phone services. I have accomplished a lot in 2014, and I will accomplish far more in 2015 starting today.
I will increase my knowledge of mankind, myself, and the goods I sell, thus my sales will multiply. I will practice, and improve, and polish the words I utter to sell my goods, for this is the formulation on which I will build my career and never will I forget that many have attained great wealth and success with only one sales talk, delivered with excellence. Also will I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
I have autonomy as I proudly provide service and create productive leaders in my network marketing organization. I provide exceptional materials, personal training, and hands-on assistance as I recruit and develop successful leaders who are creating their own amazing realities. I can only provide this training and support to my team if I have polished my own words regarding my business. I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life. I cheerfully share my opportunity and create productive networkers by teaching them exactly what to say and do to be successful. I am giddy as I build teams that grow fast, without my direct involvement, creating great wealth for me. I proudly help customers save money, and help my Associates make money.
I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open. I will look beyond the cloth and I will not be deceived.
I will win, and I will become a great salesman, for I am unique. I am nature’s greatest miracle.
As I overcome my challenges, I will be more able than ever to coach and support my team through their challenges. I won’t compare my results to anyone else, but I will reach my own goals. I will learn from my mentors, but I will not seek to copy them exactly. I am unique. I will sell my uniqueness. People enjoy working with me. Let your light shine; promote your own uniqueness.
I have come so far already. Today I begin a new life.
It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
