17 lessons I learnt from OG Mandino

Who is Mandino?

Augustine OG Mandino was a bombardier turned insurance salesman who later became the author of the bestselling book the greatest salesman that ever lived. I will list some highlight from the book that I found really inspiring and challenging.

  1. Success is a state of mind
  2. Failure is man’s inability to reach his goals
  3. The difference between those that succeeded and those that failed lies in their habits
  4. Good habits are the key to success
  5. I must be a slave to good habits and destroy all bad habits
  6. Only a habit can subdue another habit
  7. Make love your greatest weapon. Love your enemies so that they become friends. Love your friends so that they become brothers.
  8. I will always find reasons to applaud and not see excuses to gossip. I will bite my tongue when tempted to criticize
  9. I will persist until I succeed because the prizes of life are at the end of each journey not at the beginning
  10. I will never consider defeat. I vow to remove words quit, cannot, unable, impossible, failure, unworkable, hopeless, retreat from my vocabulary
  11. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep my eyes at the goal
  12. I will not allow yesterday’s success to lull me into complacency because that is a great foundation for failure
  13. I am nature’s greatest miracle. I will no longer attempt to imitate another person
  14. I will live today as if it were my last. I will fight procrastination
  15. Today, I will be a master of my emotions. When I master my emotions, I master my destiny
  • If I feel depressed- I will sing
  • If I feel sad – I will laugh
  • If I feel ill – I will double my labor
  • If I feel uncertain – I will raise my voice
  • If I feel poverty – I will think of wealth to come
  • If I feel incompetent – I will remember past success
  • If I feel insignificant – I will remember my goals
  • If I become over confident – I will recall my failure
  • If I over indulge – I will think of past hunger
  • If I feel complacency – I will remember my competition
  • If I enjoy moment of greatness – I will remember moments of shame
  • If I feel all powerful – I will try to stop the wind
  • If I feel overly proud – I will remember a moment of weakness
  1. My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible unless followed by action. I WILL ACT NOW!
  2. When the journey becomes confusing and blurry, I will pray to God for guidance
