“I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk to sleep with the sheep. I will not hear those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny. I will persist until I succeed” – (Excerpt from Og Mandino’s The Greatest Salesman in the World – Chap 10 Scroll III)
This week I don’t have a lot to say. Instead I’d like you to think about the quote above. When I read this passage for me, it oozes power, its screams confidence. It acknowledges belief that we are born with greatness. Living in this manner proclaims a destiny of something more than… It displays burning desire NOT to be average but instead to take the life by the horns wrestle every drop from it. It reeks disdain for mediocrity and sameness and a determination to avoid the same fate as the sheeple. Ok I’m done. What does it say to you!?
sorry Apple lovers 🙂
