Week 12 MKE – a new day

Today I begin a new life.

I notice that one of the recurrent ideas that attract me the most in The Greatest Salesman (Og Mandino), is the way he approaches each and every day, i.e. separately from the other days. I love this attitude. It liberates me from the possible difficulties of the day before, or from the expectations that I had unconsciously built for myself. It also makes me enthusiastic about the day to come. Because of course, Og Mandino encourages us to anticipate the new day as the best one of our life.

I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that it will be the best day of my life.

Singling out each day is also about putting into perspective the efforts that you make, cutting your monthly efforts into steps, thus easier to make.

In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

This is also linked to breaking bad habits, or stopping negative thoughts, and about living here and now, making the best of the present moment. It enables to consciously  bring about a positive thought about the day to come, nourished with emotion, therefore a belief that will become reality.

With the effect of the MKE or Og Mandino’s scrolls, such positive thoughts at sunrise become easier every day. They do! I used to fear many of my days.

As the words of these scrolls are consumed by my mysterious mind, I begin to awake, each morning, with a vitality I have never known before. My vigor increases, my enthusiasm rises, my desire to meet the world overcomes every fear I once knew at sunrise, and I am happier than I ever believed it possible to be.

Now, as much as I can,

I greet this day with love in my heart and I am born again.

  1. That is so funny! I used that exact Og quote in my blog this week (I will forget the happenings, etc.)! Great minds think alike :) Nice post. I try like heck to be in the present but it is a struggle sometimes. I’m glad to hear that Og is helping you stay positive. It really is an amazing book, isn’t it?

    1. Ha ha ! Yes, great minds alike ! I have just commented on your post, of course. Let us keep moving forward then. Not thinking about yesterday gives a nice feeling of freedom, keeps us focused and preserves our energy.
