Today is July First which means I move on to my next Og Mandino Chapter, which I will read evryday for July. Here are some nuggets from June’s chapter which was about multiplying our value:

“To grow and multiply it is necessary to plant the wheat grain in the darkness of the earth and my failures, my despairs, my ignorance, and my inabilities are the darkness in which I have been planted in order to ripen. Now, like the wheat grain which will sprout and blossom only of it is nurtured with rain and sun and warm winds, I too must nurture my body and mind to fulfill my dreams.”

“Never will I be of concern that my goals are too high for is it not better to aim my spear at the moon and strike only an eagle than to aim my spear at the eagle and strike only a rock?”

“Only a worm is free from the worry of stumbling. I am not a worm. I am not an onion plant. I am not a sheep. I am a man. Let others build a cave with their clay. I will build a castle with mine.”

“To surpass the deeds of others is unimportant; to surpass my own deeds is all.”

“I will do the work that a failure will not do.”
