MKMMA Week 7- “What Does Love Got To Do With It”

Whats-Love-Got-To-Do-With-It.....Everything

That is the question that many of us, myself included, asked as we read the Second scroll of Og Mandino’s masterpiece “The Greatest Salesman in the World”. 

I mean, as a man,husband,father,grandfather,son and brother, I fully understood what love means in my personal and family life.

However, what in the world does love have to do with success in sales and business?

As natural a feeling and emotion that is love, this might very well be the most challenging thing I can ever imagine doing.  To love all that I encounter in life, is easier said than done.  I was raised in the Christian Church and of course, this always sounded good in theory, and on Sundays!  To actually, adopt this as a LIFESTYLE, most of us fall well short of accomplishing it.

As I am living my DHARMA in the tropical Cebu, Philippines, I will look back on these pivotal weeks, as truly LIFE CHANGING!

One of my favorite U2 songs, reflects this aspect of the MKMMA very well regarding love:

This video, someone linked Martin Luther King and various Civil Rights Footage from the 50’s and 60’s here in the United States with this classic U2 song!

As an Black American, my life was truly affected by the power of LOVING OTHERS even as you were persecuted!  When I watch footage, I am truly amazed at how the movement successfully adopted nonviolence and love as taught by Ghandi.

What does this all mean for me, in the here and now of the year 2014?

If I am to manifest the life I expect to live, I must adhere to this obediently and without ego!  DO IT NOW!  No excuses, it doesn’t matter that I live and work in a major urban metropolitan area.  To be what I will to be, love must be in my heart to others at all time.

Everything truly is connecting right now in the MKMMA course.  The no opinions, forgiving others and no negative feelings, its all interconnected and vital to my success in life.

I truly wish all my fellow course members the best in adhering to this vital phase of the program.  Look forward to reading about everyone else’s experiences and successes!

  3. That is one of my favorite U2 songs! And I love the beach picture on the background of your blog. Did you take that photo? Is that in the Philippines? I also love how everything is starting to connect…Do it NOW! I can be what I will to be. No opinions. Greeting each day and every person with love. All of it. It’s almost overwhelming at times! But it’s AWESOME! Keep up the great work!

      Thank you very much Greg, yes it certainly is all connecting and the pace is accelerating in the course! That picture is not one that I personally took and yes it is a beach in the Philippines. The island of Bohol in the Southern area of Philippines. Thanks for reading.
