The Greatest Salesman
in the World
- Og Mandino
Do not aspire for wealth and labor not only to do
rich.
Strive instead for happiness, to be loved and to love,
and most important, to acquire peace of mind and
serenity.
The rewards are great if one succeeds but the rewards
are great only because so few succeed.
In selling, as in all careers of importance, victory
comes only after many struggles and countless
defeats
Never feel shame for trying and failing for he who
has never failed is he who has never tried.
Failure will never overtake you if your determination
to succeed is strong enough
The Scroll Marked I
Today I begin a new life
Failure, like pain, is alien to my life
Practice the art of patience, for nature, never acts in haste
Nature has already supplied me with knowledge and instinct far
greater than any beast in the forest and the value of experience is
overrated, usually by old men who nod wisely and speak stupidly
Good habits are the key to all success
The Scroll Marked II
I will greet this day with love in my heart
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 the
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
Just as love is my weapon to open the hearts of men, love is
also my shield to repulse the arrows of hatred and spears
of anger
The Scroll Marked III
I will persist until I succeed
I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does
failure course in my veins. The slaughterhouse of failure is
not my destiny
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 will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that
small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking
I will persist with knowledge that each failure to sell will
increase my chance for success at the next attempt
I will Persist; I will Win
The Scroll Marked IV
I am nature’s greatest miracle
None has the ability to sell exactly as I
I am rare, and there is value in all rarity; therefore, I am
Valuable
I have unlimited potential. Only a small portion of my brain
do I employ; only a paltry amount of muscles do I flex
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.
Never will I forget that many have attained great wealth
and success with only one sales talk, delivered with
excellence
There is no room in the market place for my family, nor is
there room in my room for the market
The Scroll Marked V
I will live this day as if it is my last
Yesterday is buried forever and I will think of it no more
Tomorrow lies buried with yesterday,
and I will think of it no more
I have but one life and life is naught but
a measurement of time
The duties of today I shall fulfill today
The Scroll Marked VI
Today I will be master of my emotions
Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions;
strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts
If I feel depressed I will sing
If I feel sad I will laugh
If I feel ill I will double my labor
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come
If I feel incompetent I will remember past success
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals
The Scroll Marked VII
I will laugh at the world
I will smile and my digestion will improve;
I will chuckle and my burdens will be lightened;
I will laugh and my life will be lengthened for
this is the greatest secret of long life and now it is mine
Words to carry me through every adversity and maintain my
life in balance are: This too shall pass
I will be happy; I will be successful
The Scroll Marked VIII
Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold
I will set goals for the day, the week the month,
the year, and my life
In setting my goals I will consider my best
performance of the past and multiply it a
hundredfold. This will be the standard
by which I will live in the future
Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold
I will commit not the terrible crime of aiming too low
I will do the work that a failure will not do
I will always let my reach exceed my grasp
I will never be content with my performance in the market
I will always raise my goals as soon as they are attained
I will always strive to make the next hour
better than this one
I will always announce my goals to the world.
Yet, never will I proclaim my accomplishments
The Scroll Marked IX
I will act now
I will not avoid the tasks of today and charge them to
tomorrow for I know that tomorrow never comes
Only action determines my value in the market place and to
multiply my value I will multiply my actions
I will command, and I will obey mine own command.
I will act now
The Scroll Marked X
I will Pray
Help me to remain humble through obstacles and failures;
yet hide not from mine eyes the prize that will come from
victory
Assign me tasks to which others have failed;
yet guide me to pluck the seeds of success from their failures.
Discipline me in the habit of trying and trying again;
yet show me the way to make us of the law of averages.
Favor me with alertness to recognize opportunity;
yet endow me with patience which will concentrate my strength
Expose me to hate so it be not a stranger;
yet fill my cup with love to turn strangers into friends
Let me become all you planned for me when my seed was planted and
selected by you to sprout in the vineyard of the world
Help this humble salesman.
Guide me, God
