Week 8~ Kick The Habit of (Will)

~Kick the Habit~

As usual Sunday night training class was
awesome. I rejoice with each and everyone
that are having record breaking successes,
because of the gold nuggets learned and
implemented here.

Congratulations guys!!!

I am glad Mark advised us to eliminate the
word (will) from our reading of “The Greatest
Salesman in the World.” This happens to be an
act I had already put into practice every since
week 1, when we were told to forget about the
word will. That’s exactly what I did from that day
forward. Everything I’ve been reading in the GS, I
would either strike out the word (will) and replace it with a stronger word, but in most cases
I’d just omit it altogether. Like Mark said, “it brings a different meaning to what’s being read.”

Also, another word I like to omit is the word (yet). This is something I found was blocking the
strength of the sentence. For example, the third paragraph of Scroll two, Mandino writes,
“I will love the sun for
it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.”

When I omit [will & yet] the sentence then reads “I love the sun for it warms my bones and
I love the
rain for it cleanses my spirit.” To me the latter sentence has a more powerful
meaningful message to it. This is my opinion and what I feel when reading it this way.
Probably not for everyone, so by all means insert the proper wording for you.

Last night I learned some really profound networking nuggets that I see to be really
beneficial to my business. Ask! and you shall receive…We as a group asked for more
networking skills training and WHAWLA! Sunday night training was a perfect ’10.

Here we are at week 8 already! These classes has been a whole new experience and
my expectations for the remaining weeks are really high. I’m learning all kind of cool
stuff. Now I must ponder on how to master the art of recording my voice via internet.
This is going to be interesting!

That’s it for now Champions! I’ll see you at the top ‚ô¶
