“There once was a man of modest means who owned a farm. He worked diligently until he heard that diamond mines were being discovered all around the country. He yearned to become rich quickly, so he sold his farm, left his family and went prospecting for diamonds.
In the meantime, the first owner, who had gone prospecting, never found his riches. Even worse, he had made a mistake for which he never forgave himself: Instead of looking right under his own two feet he had gone elsewhere to look for riches. He had possessed his own field of diamonds, but never developed it; instead he lost everything he had.”
There is a moral to this story: Don’t look to other people, or try emulate their path, to discover success. Explore yourself to find your riches in life. You have been created with incredible, unique talents and abilities.
Even though they may seem trivial or be buried very deep, they are there, just waiting to be mined. Tap into them and become all that you have ever dreamed you could be. Every person has something to offer to society, so dig deep and fulfill your amazing potential.
