Three Feet From Gold Empty Three Feet From Gold

One of the most common causes of failure is
the habit of quitting when one is overtaken by
temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this
mistake at one time or another.
An uncle of R. U. Darby was caught by the "gold
fever" in the gold-rush days, and went west to
DIG AND GROW RICH. He had never heard that
more gold has been mined from the brains of
men than has ever been taken from the earth.
He staked a claim and went to work with pick
and shovel. The going was hard, but his lust for
gold was definite.
After weeks of labor, he was rewarded by the
discovery of the shining ore. He needed
machinery to bring the ore to the surface.
Quietly, he covered up the mine, retraced his
footsteps to his home in Williamsburg,
Maryland, told his relatives and a few neighbors
of the "strike." They got together money for the
needed machinery, had it shipped. The uncle
and Darby went back to work the mine.
The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a
smelter. The returns proved they had one of the
richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of
that ore would clear the debts. Then would
come the big killing in profits.
Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of
Darby and Uncle! Then something happened!
The vein of gold ore disappeared! They had
come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of
gold was no longer there! They drilled on,
desperately trying to pick up the vein again--all
to no avail.
Finally, they decided to QUIT.
They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few
hundred dollars, and took the train back home.
Some "junk" men are dumb, but not this one!
He called in a mining engineer to look at the
mine and do a little calculating. The engineer
advised that the project had failed, because the
owners were not familiar with "fault lines." His
calculations showed that the vein would be
exactly where it was found!
The "Junk" man took millions of dollars in ore
from the mine, because he knew enough to
seek expert counsel before giving up.
Most of the money which went into the
machinerywas procured through the efforts of R. U. Darby,
who was then a very young man. The money
came from his relatives and neighbors, because
of their faith in him. He paid back every dollar
of it, although he was years in doing so.
Long afterward, Mr. Darby recouped his loss
many times over, when he made the discovery
that DESIRE can be transmuted into gold. The
discovery came after he went into the business
of selling life insurance.
Remembering that he lost a huge fortune,
because he STOPPED three feet from gold,
Darby profited by the experience in his chosen
work, by the simple method of saying to
himself, "I stopped three feet from gold, but I
will never stop because men say 'no' when I ask
them to buy insurance."
Darby is one of a small group of fewer than fifty
men who sell more than a million dollars in life
insurance annually. He owes his "stickability" to
the lesson he learned from his "quitability" in
the gold mining business.
Before success comes in any man's life, he is
sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and,
perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a
man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is
to QUIT. That is exactly what the majority of
men do.
More than five hundred of the most successful
men this country has ever known, told the
author their greatest success came just one step
beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken
them. Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of
irony and cunning. It takes great delight in
tripping one when success is almost within

From "Think and Grow Rich," by Napolean Hill, 1938.
