Andrew Carnegie was one of the richest men who ever lived. He was an American industrialist. He employed 43 millionaires at the height of his success. When asked how he made millionaires, Carnegie talked about mining for gold. “You develop people the same way you mine gold. To mine gold, one digs several tons of dirt to get an ounce of gold. But one does not go into the mine looking for dirt. One goes in looking for gold.”
You have gold inside of you! Your real potential has not been uncovered yet! You have special and unique gifts, talents, and abilities lying dormant within. A piece of gold is worthless lying deep in the earth’s crust. Your life coach or mentor will bring that gold to the surface. He or she will draw those beautiful nuggets out of you to show to and share with the world.
