From Scroll II in Og Mandino’s Book: I will greet this day with love in my heart. For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscle can split a shield 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 none on whom I call can defend against its force.
In our Master Key Master Mind Alliance (MKMMA) class, we have now moved on to reading Scroll II for the month of November. Just as I got a lot out of repeatedly reading Scroll I, I am already getting a big boost in my life from Scroll II. For example, in my business, it doesn’t matter if I have a great and obvious way for my customers to save on electricity or mobile phone service that my potential customer is unable to understand. I simply handle it with love.
My reasoning they may counter; my speech they may distrust; my apparel they may disapprove; my face they may reject; and even my bargains may cause them suspicion; yet my love will melt all hearts liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay.
I love my potential business partners, even if they don’t join my team for now, or ever. My efforts are all about helping them achieve the better outcome that they desire. I have freedom and autonomy in my life as I proudly provide service and create productive leaders in my organization. I provide exceptional training materials, personal training, and hands-on assistance as I recruit and develop successful leaders who are creating their own amazing realities. I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.
Today I am reflecting on, among other things, the end of the Civil Rights Era. One advantage that Atlanta had in the early 1970s, compared to the rest of the South, was that business and political leaders – both Black and White – decided that Atlanta was “The City That is Too Busy to Hate”. They must have read Scroll II:
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 have come so far already. Today I begin a new life.
It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
