The Greatest Salesman In the World - The Scroll Marked V
“I will live this day as if it’s my last.
I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart, for why should I throw good after bad? Forgetting yesterday neither will I think of tomorrow.
This day is all I have and these hours are now my eternity. So too, I will beat upon my heart with gratitude as I consider all who greeted yesterday’s sunrise who are no longer with the living today. I am indeed a fortunate man and today’s hours are but a bonus, undeserved. Why have I been allowed to live this extra day when others, far better than I, have departed? Is it that they have accomplished their purpose while mine is yet to be achieved? Is this another opportunity for me to become the man I know I can be? Is there a purpose in nature? Is this my day to excel?
I have but one life and life is naught but a measurement of time. When I waste one I destroy the other. I will avoid with fury the killers of time. Procrastination I will destroy with action; doubt I will bury under faith; fear I will dismember with confidence.
The duties of today I shall fulfill today. I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is my last, it will be my greatest monument. This day I will make the best day of my life. I will labor harder than ever before and push my muscles until they cry for relief, and then I will continue.
Each minute of today will be more fruitful than the hours of yesterday. My last must be my best. I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.
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 V.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed the read.
