The Greatest Salesman In the World - The Scroll Marked VII

“I will laugh at the world.

No living creature can laugh except man, yet only I have the gift of laughter and it is mine to use whenever I choose. Henceforth I will cultivate the habit of laughter. I will laugh and my life will be lengthened for this is the great secret of long life and now it is mine. And most of all, I will laugh at myself for man is most comical when he takes himself too seriously.

Will my concern for this day not seem foolish ten years hence? Why should I permit the petty happenings of today to disturb me? What can take place before this sun sets which will not seem insignificant in the river of centuries?

Four words I will train myself to say until they become a habit so strong that immediately they will appear in my mind whenever good humor threatens to depart from me. These words will carry me through every diversity and maintain my life in balance. These four words are: This too shall pass.

I will paint this day with laughter; I will frame this night in song. Never will I labor to be happy; rather will I remain too busy to be sad. And with my laughter all things will be reduced to their proper size. I will laugh at my failures and they will vanish in clouds of new dreams; I will laugh at my successes and they will shrink to their true value.

I will laugh at the world. Only with laughter and happiness can I truly become a success. To enjoy success I must have happiness, and laughter will be the maiden who serves me.

I will be happy”

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 VII.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed the read.
