Are you stopping 3 feet from GOLD?
Over the past couple of years, I’ve made a number of reading recommendations to my clients and students, specifically the book, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I’ve also quoted Napoleon Hill quite often on my Facebook Page.
Today, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite lessons from the book. I hope that this lesson inspires you to persistently pursue your dreams, and to read the entire book.
In the beginning of the book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill tells a story about a gentleman named R. U. Darby. Darby was a millionaire when Mr. Hill interviewed him in preparation to write this book; however, the story Darby shared with Mr. Hill, was about a defining moment in his life when he was much poorer and younger, that taught him to understand the power of persistence and not giving up.
Darby’s story provides a great lesson for all of us because he stopped three feet short of the goal he was seeking. He just decided to quit.
3 Feet From Gold – My questions for you this week are:
- On what are you about to give up?
- Have you invested your time and/or money into receiving expert advice and counsel?
- Are you stopping 3 feet from GOLD?
I know how hard this business and sport can be, and the trials and tribulations that come from working to succeed in it every day. Recently, I started putting some notes together for my own upcoming book on how I learned to attract sponsors and big opportunities to teach my readers do this themselves and I had to dig deep into some of the darkest times of my life. Times of pure survival, times of being beaten down, harassed and even having my ideas and lifetime of teachings stolen by jealous vindictive people trying to pass them on as their own.
