The Greatest Salesman In the World - The Scroll Marked VIII
“Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.
I am liken to a grain of wheat which faces one of three futures. The wheat can be placed in a sack and dumped in a stall until it is fed to swine. Or it can be ground to flour and made into bread. Or it can be placed in the earth and allowed to grow until its golden head divides and produces a thousand grains from the one.
I have a choice and I will not let my life be fed to swine nor will I let it be ground under the rocks of failure and despair to be broken upon and devoured by the will of others.
First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. I have objectives before my life will crystallize. In setting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold. This will be the standard by which I will live in the future. Never will I be of concern that my goals are too high.
I am a man. Let others build a cave with their clay. I will build a castle with mine. Today I will surpass every action which I performed yesterday. To surpass the deeds of others is unimportant; to surpass my own deeds is all.
My words will announce my goals. Once spoken I dare not recall them lest I lose face. I will be as my own prophet and though all may laugh at my utterances they will hear my plans, they will know my dreams; and thus there will be no escape for me until my words become accomplished deeds.
I will not commit the terrible crime of aiming too low. I will never be content with my performance. I will always raise my goals as soon as they are attained. I will always strive to make the next hour better than this one. I will always announce my goals to the world.
Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold. And when it is done I will do it again, and again, and there will be astonishment and wonder at my greatness.
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 VIII.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed the read.
