Week 10~Golden Nuggets of Life

Key to Success

Scroll 3 is packed with gold nuggets for moving on through
life. The wisdom Mandino uses to demonstrate life’s everyday
challenges are nothing but pure brilliance.

I must persist until I succeed!

We are all tested by life at some point, but if we persist and
charge forward like the Orient bulls do in fight arena’s, we
should never fail to succeed.

Og reminds us that the naysayers are like sheep headed to
the slaughterhouse of failure. If we refuse to listen to them
and be like them we are guaranteed to have a much better
chance of defeating failure.

How true it is that fear and failure are forever trying to steal our dreams.
The only ones who win are those who persist and keep taking the steps,
one after the other. We keep pressing in because success could be hiding
behind the next bend in the road and we won’t know it unless we turn the corner.

We are also shown here that success won’t be easy, but with faith and persistence it must
eventually happen. Just like attempting to chop down a mighty oak with a blade or being
that rain drop that washes away a mountain. It doesn’t happen immediately, still with
continuous action over time it never fail to succeed.

The moral of this chapter (to me) is to never ever consider defeat. Do whatever needs to be
done to keep ourselves moving forward in the direction of our dreams. Mandino sums it up
so plain and clearly by saying, “ignore the obstacles and keep your eyes on the goals,
because where dry desert ends, green grass grows.”   Simply persist until you succeed.

The best nugget of all is “when” you succeed, as you surely must when you persist, don’t
dwell on yesterdays happenings or successes. Rather greet each new day with a new
confidence. I call this chapter one that is full of golden nuggets to living the best life!

I ..Persist.
I ..Win!
