There was once a man who dreamed of finding a diamond mine. He sold his farm and set out to travel far and wide on his search, without any luck. When he returned to his home town, he was astonished to find that there had been a diamond mine on his old farm the whole time! This story underpins the author's teaching, to work from where we are here and now. Success is not out there, it's in the qualities within us.
Meet the author, a self-made man who lived a totally unselfish life, and who opened doors of opportunity for untold millions through his philosophy that "ALL GOOD THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!" He believed that each of us is placed here on earth for one main purpose--to help others.
Conwell was a minister, the founder of Temple University, and two hospitals where no one was ever turned away for lack of money. He was also a famous lecturer. In his lecture, the story is told of a man who sells his farm, to travel far and wide in search of diamonds. There is a moral to the tale Conwell gave the lecture over 6,000 times to untold numbers of people. It earned over $4,000,000 (about $150,000,000 in today's dollars.) all given to youth and education.
