An inspirational story,
This review is from: The Greatest Salesman in the World (Mass Market Paperback)
I was prompted to write this review based on a number of negative reviews I read on this page about the book.
One reader actually said he read it twice with out getting the point-or much out of it.
Og Mandino's is one with a difference-it is not what you can get out of it that matters ( he is not really trying to impart knowledge in the real sense) it is what the book can impart into your subconscious mind that makes it different.
As one reviewer explained the best way you can acquire maximum benefit from book is by following the recommended procedure-reading each chapter for 30 days, three times daily and not turning to the next chapter until you have completed the preceding one.
I know this might sound strange and a waste of time (we are talking about 270 days here) but it is indeed worth the while.
If you go about it this way you will start noticing a change -have a more positive attitude to life-persist more and wake up with more vigor.
What you have read will keeping seeping through you conscious to your subconscious (especially when you face tough situations) and this will inspire you handle life better.
I personally read the book in 1993 - I could not believe that there was such a wonderful book in existence and it really changed my life>
How I wish more of us could learn to inspire and motivate like Og.
He definitely got me thinking about going into inspiration motivation.
