The Scroll Marked IV
Og Mandino wrote The Greatest Salesman in the World in 1968.
It is a book outlining the philosophy of salesmanship and success.
The Ten Scrolls that make up the book are like a self improvement and motivational handbook.
Below are some excerpts from The Scroll Marked IV:
I Am Nature’s Greatest Miracle
The Fourth Scroll in the book is about being a unique being – Nature’s Greatest Miracle.
“Since the beginning of time, never has there been another with my mind, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my hands, my hair, my mouth. None that came before, none that live today, and none that come tomorrow can walk and talk and move and think exactly like me. All men are my brothers yet I am different from each. I am a unique creature.
Within me burns a flame, which has been passed from generations uncounted, and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will. I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world.
None can duplicate my brush strokes, none can duplicate my chisel marks, none can duplicate my handwriting, none can produce my child, and, in truth, none has the ability to sell exactly as I. Henceforth, I will capitalize on this difference for it is an asset to be promoted to the fullest.
I am a unique creature of nature.
Vain attempts to imitate others no longer will I make. Instead I will place my uniqueness on display in the market place. I will proclaim it.
“What I am, is not out there. It is in me”. Helen Keller
