Chapter 2.1 ~ Three Feet from Gold

This short story is about Darby trying to find gold by drilling oil. He was able to fund his project through family and friends and found oil. Bringing in enough to pay back investment but hit a snag when the real profits was about to roll in.

The snag was a small but surprisingly Darby and crew packed up the operation and sold everything for next to nothing. This move practically gave millions way to a junk man who bought the equipment for next to nothing.

This story is an example of how many people quit when faced with defeat. A key quote is “Desire and can be transmuted into gold” from the lesson he learned from mining he became one of the top insurance salesmen in the world.

When defeat over takes a person most people quit. Failure is needed to be successful and this sub chapter helps to bring that message home. Listen and get inspired. Tell us about a time you succeeded after a failure or two.

More gold has been mined from the thoughts of man, than has ever been taken from the earth.
