The Scroll Marked I: How it Begins
This is how it begins, my new chapter in this life I call “mine”. The excerpt comes from a book given to me by a dear friend. He read a passage to me one morning and gave me this book to read and practice its teachings of philosophy and success. The book is The Greatest Salesman in the World by the American author Og Mandino. In it there is a story about a camel boy named Hafid who found a chest with 10 ancient scrolls inside. These scrolls brought him success and abundance later in his life. Each scroll is a set of principles that will help the reader succeed not only in sales but in life as a person. Everyone is selling something; whether is a product or selling yourself, your ideas and opinion. I am interested in the latter. I am interested in being successful, sharing my ideas and opinions effectively, connecting with people, understanding their needs and serving them. This is not an ego-driven move to make myself known to others but to position myself to inspire and motivate others to discover their true potential to be happy and successful, living a life of abundance and prosperity. Like a good salesperson, I have to sell myself first and stand behind my product a hundred percent. I will practice these principles daily, learn from them, apply it to my life and in time, influence others to do the same. That is what I am learning here, starting with the scroll marked 1, “ I will form good habits and become their slave”. I hope you too take this opportunity to start something that will benefit you and others in your life.
