Perseverance, hope and opportunity

Three Feet From Gold – A Story About Perseverance

Harby’s uncle had gold fever, so he staked his claim and started digging.  After a lot of hard work, the uncle found a vein of ore, so he covered up his find and returned home to raise the money for the machinery that he would need to bring the ore to the surface.

They raised the money and Darby travelled with his uncle back to the site to make their fortune.

Things started well and before long, they had enough to clear their debts.  They were excited, everything from here on would be profit and things were looking good.

Then the supply of gold stopped.  The vein of ore had disappeared.

They kept on digging, but found nothing.

After a while, they quit in frustration and sold their machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars.

After they went home in disappointment, the astute junk man called in a mining engineer who checked the mine and calculated that there was a vein of gold just three feet from where Darby and his uncle had stopped digging.

The junk man went on to make millions from the mine.

Darby returned home, paid back everyone who had lent him money and was determined to learn from his mistake in giving up too soon.

He went on to become a phenomenally successful insurance salesman, more than recouping what he would have made from the gold mine.

He learned the lesson that you need to persevere through difficulties and stay focused if you are to become successful.

Whenever you feel like giving up on your dream, remember that you may be just three feet from gold!

Keeping the momentum in your business

Business owners have to motivate themselves daily.

Wake up at 8am and stop work at 8pm.

They know that success depends on them.

They thrive on challenges and opportunities.

Creating each moment as if it will give them another opportunity or sales.

Building relationships to last a lifetime and collaborations to each person they meet.

Getting referrals is the starting block to building their business.

If each business owner collaborates with one another, more business is created and so more business can survive.

Survival has been the motto since the 80s, when small mom and pop stores are over powered by big ones.

Still, the name of the game is creativity, finding new ways to serve each customer based on changing times.

To belong to a community.

They have ambitions and dreams to get certain marketing ideas
off… and then within days or weeks, their efforts dwindle
to a trickle… and then halt entirely.

A German study concluded that people spend about 4 hours per
day (on average) in distraction i.e. in activities that do not
add up to their desired objectives.
4 hours lost per day can equate to hundreds of
thousands of dollars of revenue for you over
the year or months.

“I am a better leader and generator of my team.
I’m getting clearer on my marketing strategy
and am hitting 90% of my monthly and yearly
income goals.”

Why you are doing what you are doing, success and dreams

We have to ask why we are doing what we are doing. Ask yourself the reasons for choosing the directions you are threading. When we know the why and are determined to stick to our plans because we believe in our why, we know in our heart that we found what we are looking for.

Our passion and determination to get what we want will help us get to where we are going.

My why of helping others in getting their dreams of financial freedom will also help me support the college education of my 2 teens and help me with my own personal dreams.

I am blessed to be surrounded by a supportive network of people.

Many more friends are coming my way to support me as I network with others and help them live their dreams too.

So next time, you make a decision, ask yourself your WHYs. Why do you want to succeed? Why do you want to prepare when you lose your job? Why do you want to retire yourself or your wife from an 8-5 job?
