Three Feet From Gold

I struck it this time… you can too! A self taught lesson in perseverance.

It’s been a few years since I last read Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”. I was recently reminded of a true story in that book of a man named R.U. Darby. Darby went west to dig for gold. He found a vein of gold in the mountains of Colorado, mined it, then….. lost it. He spent much time drilling to pick up the vein again. Then, He sold his equipment and gave up. The man he sold the equipment to, hired an engineer, and was able to locate the vein of gold THREE feet from where Darby stopped.

Like Darby, I was introduced to a strategy that had the possibility to make MILLIONS this past March. I gave it a couple shots and came up short, and got busy with other projects. It wasn’t till a key company notified me (2 weeks ago) they were cancelling my account when I decided to give it another shot. OHH MY! After blowing through $200 buck to learn the system, I am finally making life changing income.

How many other opportunities have I let slip by me? That’s tough to think about. As a entrepreneurial mind, I start MANY projects. How many of them had the potential to earn this income? How many have I quit. Opportunity has very cleaver disguise and looks a lot like failure.

Equally as interesting, if that company had never¬†nearly cancelled my account, I’d never have realized the potential. Humans are very interesting creatures. We preform the best when our backs are against the wall. How do you mimic this without actually going through that pain? I don’t believe you can. “Security nets” do more harm than good.

How many opportunities are slipping by you? If you haven’t read Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”… BUY IT. Kindle version is .99 cents…. the best dollar you’ll spend this year.

Please let me know your thoughts or how I can help you reach your potential.

To your success,
