Thought Is Cause
This month we have been reading scroll 3 of The Greatest Salesman in the World, by Og Mandino, he writes about persistence and making small attempts, repeated will complete any undertaking. He also talks about never giving in to defeat and no matter how tired or frustrated you are by no sales, to never allow the day to end in failure, to try again and again until victory. Plant that seed for tomorrow’s success and do not allow yesterday’s success to lull you into complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. He goes on to say, ” forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they be good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this be the best day of my life.” Is Og just talking about sales or is he also talking about positive mental attitude? I think he is writing about both, and I know I need to be persistent in my positive thoughts and remember to leave behind my bad days as well as my good ones. Start a new habit of persistence. Pratice each day and start everyday as a new beginning and wake up each morning with gratitude, that I am good enough. I am satisfied with what I have, and I am eager for more. I must be persistent with my thoughts of cause, charged with feeling as Mark says over and over, and I think that is what has been lacking with me. 13.22. Unless we put forth the knowledge we are learning in to practice nothing will happen. In order to get we must give, I have seen this happen to me, I gave unexpectedly to a customer of my sister who was a stranger to me, when I heard she was having a fund raiser for the make a wish foundation I immediately donated a few hotel vacation packages. This was before we read Emerson give more get more. She had asked me how I can do this, I told her I was out of work due to a physical disability and was trying to find a different way of making a living and I had just starting with this company, that allows me to give away these vacations. A Month later she picked up those vouchers and when I went to give her the money for the ticket to attend the event she would not take my money or my sisters because she was over whelmed by our genoristy of what we donated. I told my sister we can just use the money she would not take and put it back into the event. Well the night of the event I borrowed $20 off my sister because I was broke and bought a 50/50 raffle and other raffles with the money and won the 50/50. Paid back my sister put a bid in on a silent auction with the money I won and had enough to put gas in my car for the week. Funny thing is, I told my sister I was going to win the 50/50 because I needed the money, and than she asked me why did I put that bid in on silent auction when you needed the money and I just said they needed it more. Couple of other things have happened to me when I gave more and unexpectedly received back. I also have been given thoughts to Molly daily and found out on Christmas day that the nodules in her lung where not cancerous, she is a 3 year old battling stage 4 kidney cancer and that is great news for her.
13.23. Thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore creative, but make no mistake, thought will create nothing unless it is consciously, systematically, and constructively directed; and heir in is the difference between idle thinking, which is simply a dissipation of effort, and constructive thinking, which means practically unlimited achievement. I must be persistent in constructive thinking these past 2 weeks I have been in idle mode with my DMP. I look in the mirror and have been saying you can do better and I will be saying that tonight as well.
I will start my day as a new day and forget yesterday and be persistent with happy constructive thoughts and continue to be grateful for what I have and give more every day not just on some days. I will attempt small steps everyday, failure is not an option, and I will end each day with a victory of a positive mental attitude and be grateful for the pillow I lay my head on each night.
Thanks for reading, peace and be kind to Mother Nature
