SistaTv Daily Podcast #2 – Og Mandino

Happy Day after New Years.. I have a confession… most years by January 2nd… I feel so accomplished from doing well on my resolutions for January 1 that I sort of allow myself to slide on the 2nd… That’s how dope my will power is ya’ll… Less than 24 hours and I’m like, “Well, dang… I need a break”

But here it is… January 2nd… And I’m doing it… Again. What are you going to do again, today? What goal are you going to chip away at again so on January 2nd, 2016. You can look back and say… Wow… I can’t believe I did it. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

So Hello Conqueror… What are you going to conquer?

Here’s hoping listening to today SistaTV Daily Podcast will help you have a great second day of 2015….  SistaTV Loves you.

Here is the full second scroll written by Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman in the World

The Scroll Marked 2
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.

My reasoning they may counter; my speech they may distrust; my apparel they maydisapprove; 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 thecoldest clay.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. 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 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.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I speak? I will laud mine enemies and they will become friends; I will encourage my friends and they will become brothers. Always will I dig for reasons to applaud; never will I scratch for excuses to gossip. When I am tempted to criticize I will bite my tongue; when I am moved to praise I will shout from the roofs.

Is it not so that birds, the wind, the sea and all nature speaks with the music of praise for their creator? Cannot I speak with the same music to his children? Henceforth will I remember this secret and it will change my life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I act? I will love all manners of men for each has qualities to be
admired even though they be hidden. With love I will tear down the wall of suspicion and hate which they have built round their hearts and in its place will I build bridges so that my love may enter their souls.

I will love the ambitious for they can inspire me; I will love the failures for they can teach me. I will love the kings for they are but human; I will love the meek for they are divine. I will love the rich for they are yet lonely; I will love the poor for they are so many. I will love the young for the faith they hold; I will love the old for the wisdom they share. I will love the beautiful for their eyes of sadness; I will love the ugly for their souls of peace.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

But how will I react to the actions of others? With love. For just as love is my
weapon to open the hearts of men, love is also my shield to repulse the arrows of hate and the spears of anger. Adversity and discouragement will beat against my new shield and become as the softest of rains. My shield will protect me in the market place and sustain me when I am alone. It will uplift me in moments of despair yet it will calm me in time of exultation. It will become stronger and more protective with use until one day I will cast aside and walk unencumbered among all manners of men and, when I do, my name will be raised high on the pyramid of life.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And how will I confront each whom I meet? In only one way. In silence and to
myself I will address him and say I Love You. Though spoken in silence these words will shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and echo in my voice; and his heart will be opened. And who is there who will say nay to my goods when his hearts feels my love?

I will greet this day with love in my heart.

And most of all I will love myself. For when I do I will zealously inspect all things which enter my body, my mind, my soul, and my heart. Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh; rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation.
Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair, rather I will uplift it with the knowledge and wisdom of the ages. Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer.
Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth.

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 will greet this day with love, and I will succeed.

Like… Seriously… So good… It’s amazing that he wrote this period… but even more amazing is that when Og Mandino was 35 he was penniless, depressed, and owed everybody everything. He was a hopeless alcoholic, unable to keep a job, he was so messed up that his wife had packed up herself and their child and left him… He had no future. He had no hope. So he decided to commit suicide. Some of what has been written about him has him going so far as using his last few dollars to buy a gun.  But before he went through with what he planned to be his final act he stopped at a library,  he stopped  briefly at a library and plucked a few self-help books from the shelf sat at a table and changed his mind.

I am a living witness to the power of a changed mind forever…. I will preach that forever…

Og Changed his mind and changed his life from that day on. Eventually he built a hugely successful company with Success Unlimited and then changed his mind again and decided to become a writer and motivational speaker. He wrote ___ and to date his books have sold over 50 million copies world-wide…

Og Mandino is a member of the Conquer Mob…. Just because he changed his mind. What can you change your mind about? What can you greet with love? And what can you become?

SistaTV loves you, a good greeting, and the power of a changed mind…
