I was typing a text message this evening, and typed “Og” instead of “Of.” It instantly reminded me of Og Mandino.
If you haven’t read Og Mandino, you must. I was required (meaning dragged, groaning and complaining) to read three small mass-market paperbacks by Mandino way back in undergrad school, when I took a sociology/family psychology class. What began as drudgery ended up as joy. The only bummer is that over the decades, I forgot about them.
Get thee to the library or half.com (where you can buy them for less than a buck) and check out The Greatest Miracle in the World, The Greatest Salesman in the World, and The Greatest Secret in the World. I think I need to buy them all again.
Elegantly written by one of the premier inspirational authors of the 20th century, these three books have been credited with changing people’s lives. I remember them having a profound effect on me. What I originally thought were going to be snoozers turned out to be late-night page-turners. I recommend them highly.
And now…off to rehearsal. Yay.
RF, draggin’ her tail a bit
I love his books. The were introduced as recommended reading through a networking business I belong to. I thought they were a lot of fun to read also, not laborious.
