Week 6 – A Little Love in My Heart
I Greet This Day With Love in My Heart
To show the love, I wanted to let you see some of my tribe and their thoughts.
“Mind in action is thought, and thought is creative. Men are thinking now as they never thought before… Mind is force, energy, power.”
Whose mind? What men?
The daily assignments are becoming a routine, most easily completed first thing in the morning. I find my early morning walk to be a good time for the half-hour of self-improvement thoughts.
The GS scrolls remind me of things my grandmothers used to say, and these readings are evoking so many happy childhood memories.
Boy what a week! It’s been an exceptionally challenging week for me, being pulled in a bunch of different directions, a lot of obligations especially my sporadic temporary work schedule. A lot of things falling through the cracks this week with the course, and keeping up with it. Working a lot of “extra hours” to bank up money for my New York with my friend (driving up) to see my mom in Long Island. She’s a youthful 90 years old, and “sharp as a tack”.
Talking point was more on Emerson giving and compensation. Probably it’s me. The first word is giving in which is an action. The first scroll Og Mandino elaborates in good habits “an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform,”
And what really excited him was, he got the opportunity to express his new self and tell the story of his journey of how he wills his desires into reality. I have never seen him like this before. He’s been walking around with his frontal lobe all puffed up and wearing a grin so wide, that he could eat a banana sideways, suck a snow cone with 3 flavors of syrup and whistle “I who have nothing” all at the same time… picture that

It’s true. I always knew. It’s funny to draw my own attention to it!! EEK! I started young in life as bossy which maybe had a slightly cool ring to it, like it gave me a position of authority over the young’uns in the fam. I was the eldest, after all. I didn’t often hold back. I had lots of opinions, and I shared them freely. Like… FOR FREE. I didn’t have one of those complexes about being ALWAYS RIGHT, either. I just didn’t care for being WRONG. I was all for seeing both sides, just give me a solid logic statement and I’m all ears. Pretty sure I found my groove in the Opinion style of writing – where it’s not wrong if you can back it up!! I was pretty darn good at it, too…
And then there is me. The opening sentence in my DMP reads, "It pleases me to love unconditionally, joyfully recognizing the divinity in all people." A little later, it says, "I gladly extend mercy to all. I am free to be who I intend to be and I happily give others that same freedom."
So, in that vein, I love those who say no to my propositions. I love those who hate me and despitefully use me. Hmm. Where have I heard that before? I have observed that it is easy to say and even mean when you are alone. The challenge comes when other people are involved. Last week's exercise of "no opinions" set the stage for loving others. I give the hope for love (and other things) consciously with every encounter, regardless of the brevity.
One of the lessons in the Recruiting and Duplicating Mastery Summit was entitled "How to win every appointment." It perfectly embodied this philosophy and explains why some people succeed in Network Marketing and others don't. Og Mandino's closing statements of Scroll II are a fitting close for here:
"With love I will increase my sales a hundredfold 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."
