STRENGTH – BE DETERMINED AND DON’T GIVE UP
After several months of mining during the gold rush in Colorado, a man decided to quit. He hadn’t struck gold yet and the work was becoming tiresome. He sold his equipment to another man who resumed mining where he had left off. An engineer advised the miner that there was gold only three feet away from where the first miner stopped digging.
The engineer was right, which means the first miner was a mere three feet away from striking gold before he quit.
KEY TAKE AWAYS
When things start to get hard, try to persevere through the adversity. Many people give up on following their dreams because the work becomes too difficult, tedious, or tiresome–but often times, you’re closer to the finish line than you may think, and if you push just a little harder, you will succeed.
