This week assignment was to watch one of movie from this list: October Sky, Cool Runnings, Door-to-Door, Rudy, a Good Lie and Wild. I chose to watch Door-to-Door because it sounds that it might benefit to my business.
Bill Porter was born with cerebral palsy that caused his body oddly shaped and spastic walk. In addition, he couldn’t use one of his arms. But his burning desire to succeed in life on his ability was profound. He refused to let severe physical disability get in the way of his determination.
As Haanel states “thought is a spiritual activity and is therefore endowed with creative power.” (The Master Key – Part 14)
Bill manages to land a job as a door-to-door salesman for the Watkins Company. Bill walks several miles every day on his sales route, because of his sincerity, sense of humor and harmony spirit lead into the hearts of his customers.
“This discipline, this change of thought, this mental attitude will not only bring you the material things which are necessary for your highest and best welfare, but will bring health and harmonious conditions generally.” (The Master Key – Part 14, # 28)
Together with his mother’s strategy “Patience and Persistence”, I like the metaphor using the sandwich. Whenever I think about the sandwich, I immediately mentally see these two words in red “PATIENCE and PERSISTENCE.” Bill works from 8 am till the end of the day. He also practices his magic phrase “May I be candid with you?” I like the way Bill respects his company and customers by dressing professionally everyday.
I am most impressed how Bill built the harmony in the society. He does not only sell his products but also help his customers understand and love each other. I would like to thank to the Sweet Determination Bill for your creative harmonious attitude.
“Thought is the only reality; conditions are but the outward manifestations; as the thought changes, all outward or material conditions must change in order to be in harmony with their creator, which is thought.” (The Master Key – Part 14, # 25)
