The Greatest Salesman in the World, Part Two

Learn the thinking and habits that drive success.

Today, we’re going to jump right into Scrolls Two, Three, and Four from The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino. Each of these 10 scrolls contains basic principles that drive success. If you spend as little as 10-15 minutes a day reading and studying these scrolls, it will impact your thinking. You will replace your old thinking and habits with the thinking and habits that drive success.

Scroll Two: I Will Greet This Day With Love In My Heart

Love is a foundational attitude and habit. Working in sales, in customer service, you deal with people (with all types of people) all the time. Focusing on this scroll, on love, lets you lift your buyers up. It gives you an advantage.

If you have an attitude and habit of love, your buyers will feel comfortable with you, trust you, and listen to you.

Scroll Three: I Will Persist Until I Succeed

The Greatest Salesman in the World, Scroll Three

I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and I will keep my eyes on my goals above my head for I know where dry desert ends green grass grows.

– Og Mandino

How you think about success and about failure is very important. You have to have the right mindset. How you think determines how you act. How you act determines your results.

When you get up and try, try again, you trust that the right actions, repeated, will produce the right results.

In other words, quit looking at the things that are keeping you from succeeding and keep your eyes focused on your goals.

Scroll Four: I Am Nature’s Greatest Miracle

There burns a flame inside all of us which has been passed from generation to generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better that I am

– Og Mandino
The Greatest Salesman in the World, Scroll Four

The way you think about yourself is critically important. If you see that you’re created with unlimited potential, you will keep moving forward

Scroll Four reminds us that we are all individuals. We are all alike, but we’re all different, and we all have one thing in common…

Maybe your flame has been dulled over time, Maybe other people have dulled your flame and limited your potential. Today, I want to free you up to say you are nature’s greatest miracle.

You are one of a kind.

You have unlimited potential.

Next week, we cover Scrolls Five, Six, and Seven.
