Never Stop Three Feet From Gold!

R.U. Darby, one of the most successful Insurance men in the Country told a story about his uncle during the Gold Rush Days being caught up in "Gold Fever." After weeks of hard work, his uncle finally hit an ore of shiny gold, which he knew would take machinery to dig up.  He covered up his findings and went home to tell family, friends and neighbors of his discovery to receive their support.  Family, Friends and Neighbors chipped in to help purchase and ship the machinery necessary to dig up the gold.  After the initial finding though, Darby became discouraged because the Gold Ore came to a stop and he gave up, sold the drills to a junk man and went home. The Junk man called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a couple of calculations to discover that R.U. Darby's uncle had given up only three feet from gold.

How many times have we been blessed with an Opportunity and quit three feet from gold? Opportunity has a way of slipping in the back door and sometimes could even come in the form of defeat. 

What are you doing each day to move forward to hit gold?!
