This week was awesome. I started by reciting the question we were posed in our exercises;

“What would the person I intend to become do next?”

This question was written on a 3×5 card and placed on top of the nearly 100 index cards with statements of gratitude, life accomplishments and recollections of pleasant interactions with people every day. This card was on top so to “Stack the Deck” so the question had to be answered first every morning and every time I flashed my stacks of index cards.

I decided to record my recitation so I could use it in the car as I drive around. I read the first card in a straightforward way and then started read the rest of the cards. At first there was barely any emotion but as I ventured deeper in the stack I began to answer with more gusto and enthusiasm. I started to think of the sentences from each of the first five scrolls in the Greatest Salesman in the World book we have been studying and realized the answers were right in those scrolls. The sentences I carried over  answered the question like a beautiful soft leather glove of the perfect size. I have modified the sentences to be in the present tense.

“What would the person I intend to become do next?”

Carried over from scroll one;

“I walk tall among men and they know me not for today I am a new man with a new life”.

From scroll two;

“I succeed with love alone. I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world. I greet this day with love and I am succeeding.”

From scroll three;

“So long that there in breath in me, that long do I persist.  For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; I persist long enough and I am winning. I persist. I win.”

From scroll four;

“I am natures greatest miracle. 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. I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I strain my potential until it cries for mercy.”

From scroll five;

This one nails the answer to the question “What would the person I intend to bWhat would the personecome do next?”

“I will live this day as if it is my last.”

Living each day as if it is my last is my answer to the question. No more holding back or pushing work to be done NOW into the future. Whatever needs to be done gets done today with all the enthusiasm and gusto I have in me. “Do It Now”

I made a new wallpaper for my phone to remind me of what is important – in every moment. When I am tempted to look at my phone for no apparent reason I will see this first.

The cement is getting thinner and there is more on the ground every day.
