A diamond in the rough doesn’t look like a diamond and that’s an important point to remember.

In this episode Martin revisits a timeless classic from the personal development archives, “Acres of Diamonds” by Russell Conwell.

Russell Conwell shares the story of an African farmer who becomes excited about the prospect of finding a fortune of diamonds elsewhere. He hurriedly sells his farmland and heads out to seek his treasure.

After years of searching, dejected, despondent and alone, he ultimately kills drowns himself.

The moral to the story is timeless, that our real fortunes lie within. That we already have a fortune within our selves as long as we are willing to take the time to refine our skills and character.
