Go For The Gold

At one time Andrew Carnegie was the wealthiest
man in America. He came to America from his
native Scotland when he was a small boy, did
a variety of odd jobs, and eventually ended
up as the largest steel manufacturer in the
United States. At one time he had forty-three
millionaires working for him.

In those days a millionaire was a rare person;
conservatively speaking, a million dollars in
his day would be equivalent to at least twenty
million dollars today.

A reporter asked Carnegie how he had hired
forty-three millionaires. Carnegie responded
that those men had not been millionaires when
they started working for him but had become
millionaires as a result.

The reporter's next question was, "How did you
develop these men to become so valuable to you
that you have paid them this much money?"
Carnegie replied that men are developed the
same way gold is mined. When gold is mined,
several tons of dirt must be moved to get an
ounce of gold; but one doesn't go into the
mine looking for dirt.

One goes in looking for the gold.

If we would adapt this approach in how we view
people, amazing things would happen. Have you
ever felt like you wished someone would look
deep enough to see the good in you? We run at
a fast pace and so much "gold" is unmined in
people because we focus on the blemishes or
the dirt. Look for the positive aspects of life.
If you expect to find the good in a person, you
are likely to find it.
