3 Feet From Gold & Your Online Business

If you're not familiar with the story of 3 Feet From Gold, I'll give you a brief overview. It is about a man named Mr. Darby. Mr. Darby decided he was going to head west and mine for Gold. So, he headed west and started what he had set out to do. Sure enough, he struck Gold. He then headed back home to the East Coast so he could get funding for all of the proper equipment.

Back in the mountains of Colorado, Darby worked like crazy to get all of the Gold he could. He was at a break even point and was thrilled that the rest of the Gold would bring him pure profit. Then, a funny thing happened. He kept drilling but there was no more Gold! What had happened? He was so disappointed with time spent and not finding any more Gold that he quit. He sold all of his equipment to a junk guy and headed home to the East Coast.

The Junk man, on the other hand, decided to get some expert advice from engineers and the like and found that Mr. Darby just didn't know enough about the fault lines and that there was more Gold 3 FEET AWAY!! So the junk guy ended up pulling millions of dollars worth of Gold out of the same place Darby had quit.

Can you relate to this story? How many times have you been working away at something and it seems like you are getting nowhere? Trust me, you are getting somewhere. You are digging your ditches expecting it to rain.

Too many times in this industry, people hear stories of great wealth and extravagant lifestyles. Then they jump in head first wanting the same results in their life and in their business. However, when faced with the road blocks of success, they lose sight of what had brought them there and they quit. You have got to keep going! You have got to keep working! Your attitude and mindset during rough times are when your attitude and mindset matter most. Rough times are the times when the fortunes are made or lost.

Gold is waiting for you too. All you need to do is keep drilling. Do you think the same people you hear about who are manufacturing 100+ leads a day were doing that the first day they got involved in this business. NO! They mastered a skill and sought out the advice of those who knew what they were doing. Just like the junk guy in the story sought out expert advice to get what he wanted. It's time for you to do the same. Find a mentor, find a leader, one who will give you all the tools necessary for you to dig up your Gold. This game is easier played when you know the rules and have a good coach. Don't let anything stand in the way of your desires. I hope this helps you on your Journey. Until next time, Happy Marketing!
