The Greatest Salesman In the World - The Scroll Marked IX
“My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible. All are of no value unless they are followed by action. I will act now.
Action is the food and drink which will nourish my success. My procrastination which has held me back was born of fear and now I recognize this secret mind from the depths of all courageous hearts. Now I know that to conquer fear I must always act without hesitation and the flutters in my heart will vanish. Now I know that action reduces the lion of terror to an ant of equanimity.
I will not avoid the tasks of today and charge them to tomorrow for I know that tomorrow never comes. Let me act now even though my actions may not bring happiness or success for it is better to act and fail than not to act and flounder.
I will act now. I will act now. I will act now.
With these words I can condition my mind to perform every act for my success. With these words I can condition my mind to meet every challenge which the failure avoids.
When I face a closed door I will say them and knock while the failure waits outside with fear and trepidation. Only action determines my value in the market and to multiply my value I will multiply my actions. I will walk where the failure fears to walk. I will work when the failure seeks rest. I will talk when the failure remains silent. I will call on ten who can buy my goods while the failure makes grand plans to call on one. I will say it is done before the failure says that it is too late.
For now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the weak become strong. I am not weak. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now.
I hunger for success. I thirst for happiness and peace of mind. Lest I act I will perish in a life of failure, misery, and sleepless nights. Success will not wait. If I delay she will become betrothed to another and lost to me forever.
This is the time. This is the place. I am the man. I will act now.”
There is tremendous power in positive affirmation. The text above is a very condensed version from a book titled The Greatest Salesman In the World for The Scroll Marked IX.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed the read.
