You are a miracle

Brad Stanton —  November 12, 2016 — 1 Comment

This is scroll number 4 of Og Mandino. I have modified it.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

Many people have become wealthy in the noble profession of selling. It is a profession that almost anyone can do well, but few believe they can.  Salespeople provide things that people want, they help the customer find things that give him a better life. Many use this wealth to help others. It is true that you can get anything you want in life if you are willing to help enough people get what they want. Make extra income.

Since the beginning of time never has there been another person with my mind, my heart, my eyes. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me. All men are my brothers and I love them, yet I am different from each. I am a unique creature.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

Within me burns a flame, and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will become better. I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction. No one can duplicate my handwriting, none can produce my child, and, in truth, none has the ability to sell exactly as I. Henceforth, I will capitalize on this difference for it is an asset to be promoted to the fullest.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

Vain attempts to imitate others no longer will I make. Instead I will place my uniqueness on display in the market place. I will proclaim it, yes, I will sell it. I will begin now to enjoy my differences; hide my similarities. So too will I apply this principle to the goods I sell. Salesman and goods, different from all others, and proud of the differences. I am a unique creature of nature. I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am valuable. 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. I use only a small portion of my brain and a small amount of my muscles. I can increase my accomplishments of yesterday a hundredfold and this I will do, beginning today. Nevermore will I be satisfied with yesterday’s accomplishments nor will I indulge, anymore, in self-praise for deeds which in reality are too small to even acknowledge. I can accomplish far more than I have, and I will, for why should the miracle which produced me end with my birth? Why can I not extend that miracle to my deeds of today?

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

I am not on this earth by chance. I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy. 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 say 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 am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

I will concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment and my actions will help me forget all else. The problems of my home will be left in my home. I will think not of my family when I am in the market place for this will cloud my thoughts. So too will the problems of the market place be left in the market place and I will think not of my profession when I am in my home for this will dampen my love. There is no room in the market place for my family, nor is there room in my home for the market. Each I will divorce from the other and thus will I remain wedded to both. Separate must they remain or my career will die. This is the paradox of the ages.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

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 my eyes are open. I will look beyond the difficulties and I will not be deceived.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

No animal, no plant, no wind, no rain, no rock, no lake had the same beginning as I, for I was conceived in love and brought forth with a purpose. In the past I have not considered this fact but it will henceforth shape and guide my life.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts to achieve my goals in life.

And nature knows not defeat. Eventually, she emerges victorious and so will I, and with each victory the next struggle becomes less difficult.

I will win, and I will become a great salesman, for I am unique.

I am a miracle; I was created by God with just the right strengths and gifts.

This is Scroll #3 from Og Mandino. I have modified it slightly to update the English to be more modern.

I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered into this world in defeat, nor does failure flow in my veins. I am not a lazy sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

I will persist until I succeed.

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. I may still encounter failure at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

I will persist until I succeed.

Henceforth, I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my axe blade against a mighty oak tree. The first blow may not seem to have much effect, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swings of the axe, the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be like the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.

I will persist until I succeed.

I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will work and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep my eyes on the goals, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.

I will persist until I succeed.

I will remember the ancient law of averages and I will bend it to my good. I will persist with knowledge that each failure to sell will increase my chance for success at the next attempt. Each no I hear will bring me closer to the sound of yes. Each frown I meet only prepares me for the smile to come. Each misfortune I encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow’s good luck. I must have the night to appreciate the day. I must fail often to succeed only once.

I will persist until I succeed.

I will try, and try, and try again. Each obstacle I will consider as a mere detour to my goal and a challenge to my profession. I will persist and develop my skills as the sailor develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.

I will persist until I succeed.

Henceforth, I will learn and apply another secret of those who excel in my work. When each day is ended, not regarding whether it has been a success or a failure, I will attempt to achieve one more sale. When my thoughts beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again. I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another. Never will I allow any day to end with a failure. Thus will I plant the seed of tomorrow’s success and gain an insurmountable advantage over those who quit working too soon. When others cease their struggle, then mine will begin, and my harvest will be full.

I will persist until I succeed.

Nor will I allow yesterday’s success to lull me into today’s complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this will be the best day of my life. So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.

I will persist. I will win.

Scroll #2


Scroll number 2 

A wildly successful book

Og Mandino wrote The Greatest Salesman In the World in 1968. It was incredibly successful and continued to sell thousands of copies a year for 30 years. It is still selling well today. The reason it is so powerful is that Og, a master salesman, teaches how to sell in this book. But more importantly, he teaches how to have a happier life and good attitudes that bring about success in any endeavor.

This is from Og’s Scroll #2, I have changed it slightly:

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

Love is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. A strong man can destroy his enemy’s shield in battle and even destroy life but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the market place. I will make love my greatest weapon and no one I talk to can defend against its force. My reasoning they may counter; my speech they may distrust; my clothes they may disapprove; my face they may reject; and even my bargains may cause them suspicion; yet my love will melt all hearts like the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look at all people and things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms me; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

[I will think of only people, places and things that I love or like. I won’t think of things I don’t like, because that is negative thinking and it weakens me. It makes me unhappy. Positive thinking (thinking of things I like) strengthens me, makes me stronger and makes me more lovable. Thinking of only good things in other people strengthens my relationships, my career, my life.

If I offer a product or service to a potential customer, and they don’t want it, I won’t quit loving them. I’ll remember that next time they may become my best customer. Next time that person may be the key to my success.

I offer my products to help others. I remember that I am here to offer something good to them, and help them in some way.]

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I speak? I will say kind words to my enemies and they will become friends; I will encourage my friends and they will become brothers. Always will I look for reasons to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. When I am tempted to criticize I will not; when I am moved to praise I will shout from the roofs. Is it not so that birds, the wind, the sea and all nature speaks with the music of praise for their creator? Cannot I speak with the same music to his children? Henceforth will I remember this secret and it will change my life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I act? I will love all manners of men for each has qualities to be admired even though they be hidden. With love I will tear down the wall of suspicion and hate which they have built round their hearts and in its place will I build bridges so that my love may enter their souls. I will love the ambitious for they can inspire me; I will love the failures for they can teach me. I will love the kings for they are but human; I will love the meek for they are divine. I will love the rich for they are yet lonely; I will love the poor for they are so many. I will love the young for the faith they hold; I will love the old for the wisdom they share. I will love the beautiful for their eyes of sadness; I will love the ugly for their souls of peace.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

But how will I react to the actions of others? With love. For just as love is my weapon to open the hearts of men, love is also my shield to repulse the arrows of hate and the spears of anger. Adversity and discouragement will beat against my new shield and become as the softest of rains. My shield will protect me in the market place and sustain me when I am alone. It will uplift me in moments of despair yet it will calm me in time of exultation. It will become stronger and more protective with use until one day I will cast aside and walk unencumbered among all manners of men and, when I do, my name will be raised high on the pyramid of life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I confront each whom I meet? In only one way. In silence and to myself I will address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence these words will shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and echo in my voice; and his heart will be opened. And who is there who will say no to my goods when his hearts feels my love?

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh; rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation. Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer. Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

Henceforth will I love all mankind. From this moment all hate is let from my veins for I have not time to hate, only time to love. From this moment I take the first step required to become a man among men. With love I will increase my sales a hundred-fold and become a great salesman. If I have no other qualities I can succeed with love alone. Without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.

I will greet this day with love, and I will succeed.

If you believe

Jesus said “If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22 Do believe this is true?

Some do not believe this is true. Others say they believe it is true, but the words don’t mean what they appear to mean.

I have spent hundreds of hours over the past five years studying this. I have come to the conclusion that it is definitely true. When my faith is strong, I see miracles happen. But I know, dear reader, that you have prayed for something in the past that you did not get right away, maybe still have not gotten. It is easy to say (like i used to do) that this is either not true, or it doesn’t mean what it appears to mean.

Remain in faith

John 15:If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

This verse emphasizes that fact that we have to remain in Jesus in order to recieve answers to prayer. To remain in Jesus-what does that mean? I believe it means to love Jesus unconditionally.

1 John 5:In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

God’s will is important

I guess most of us would agree that when we pray we should ask for things in God’s will. James 3 says if we ask selfishly we won’t get what we pray for. But the wonderful thing is that if you love God and remain in Him, your desires become the same as His desires. Your will becomes His will. We never obtain perfection, so our desires may not become 100% the same as His, but they can align very closely.

Renew your mind

The key is to renew your mind by changing the way you think.

Romans 12:Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Negative thinking kills faith. The fearsome foursome are negative thinking and some say all negative thinking falls into one of these categories.
FADS
F  Fear
The Bible says fear God, but that means a healthy respect. I don’t find any place where it says to fear anything or anyone else. Jesus said don’t worry. Therefore worry is a sin.
A Anger
Jesus and God both got angry. Most of the time when we get angry it is selfish anger, not righteous indignation.
D Depression
Sadness is not bad, but depression is sadness without any joy. You can feel sad and have a foundation of joy in your life. When people have no joy they run the risk of a nervous breakdown.
S Shame
We know we are guilty, but after asking forgiveness, it is destructive to continue to feel shame.
Thinking about things you don’t like kills faith.Thinking only of things you love builds faith. Think only of people, places or things you like or love.

Check your feelings

If you pray for something and you don’t feel happy and grateful that you have already received it, you don’t really have faith. Therefore, if you want to know if you have faith, check your feelings. If your feelings are not happy and grateful, change them. It might be as simple as saying “I’m so happy and grateful I have…”

If you go to a restaurant and order a hamburger, you probably only order it once. You don’t order it again the next time the waitress passes by. If you did, it would show that you didn’t really believe she took the order the first time. It shows you don’t really believe you will get what you asked for. In the same way, ask for something once in prayer and then thank God often that he is giving you what you asked for. You asked for something in his will, right? So why wouldn’t he give it to you? The problem is, it might not come to you right away.

True love

One of the keys to living a life of faith is to truly love God. Do you love Him even if he doesn’t give you what you want right away?

Living a life of love for God is an amazing and joyful life. It works wonders for me, and i am sure it will for you too.
