The Greatest Salesman in the World

well may is here, already four months has gone in 2008. I discovered a book , it’s called “the greatest salesman in the world.” written by Og Mandino. It’s a book that tells of a poor camel boy who achieves a life of abundance. The book is composed of ten scrolls. the first one is commitment, second is love, third is persistence, fourth is miracle, fifth is time, sixth is emotion, seventh is laughter, eighth is value, ninth is action, and the tenth is guidance. I read the reviews on this book at amazon and it was rated quite well.  A customer quoted some of the points the book mentioned.

-I will greet each day with love for everything, light and dark.
-I will persist until I succeed; always will I take another step.
-I must fail many times to succeed only once
-My differences are what will make me successful
-I am grateful for the undeserved gift of a priceless new day
-I will bury doubt with faith
-My last must be my best
-My moods may change without reason, but so do the moods of others.
-I won’t labor to be happy. Instead I’ll remain too busy to be sad.
-I will raise my goals as soon as they are attained.
-This is the time. This is the place. I am the man. I will act now. I will multiply my value today.
-I will pray for God to guide me.

Also this book has been credited for Mathew McConaughey in pursuing his dream in the entertainment industry instead of becoming a lawyer. So check out this book(you don’t have to buy it, borrow it from the library), read it and post your review on what you think of it.
