S02-Mind Bullet Wed 17: Acres of Diamonds


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.

S02-Mind Bullet Monday 07: The Highest Form of Maturity

If happiness is, in large part, tied to the quality of our relationships, this episode is a MUST Listen…

“This is how and where the championships are won and the bridges are built…”

Unfortunately, most people grow up believing that independence is the highest form of maturity.

Martin shares some of his personal experience and the big, ah-ha in reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Dr. Stephen Covey points out that it is interdependence and not independence that is the highest form a maturity.

Further, Covey shares that the most troubled relationships tend to break down, whether it’s a team, company or in a personal setting, when the FIRST THREE HABITS (he calls, “the personal victory”) are not first honored and addressed. Those habits are: Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, Put First Things First!

In fact, it’s those first three habits that build the foundation and help to foster a strong, capable and long-lasting, interdependent relationship.
