There's a California gold rush story that
tells of two brothers who sold all they
had and went prospecting for gold. They
discovered a vein of the shining ore,
staked a claim, and proceeded to get
down to the serious business of getting
the gold ore of the mine.
All went well at first, but then a strange
thing happened. The vein of gold
disappeared! They had come to the end
of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was
no longer there. The brothers continued
to pick away, but without success.
Finally, they gave up in disgust.
They sold their equipment and claim
rights for a few hundred dollars, and
took the train back home. Now the man
who bought the claim hired an engineer
to examine the rock strata of the mine.
The engineer advised him to continue
digging in the same spot where the
former owners had left off. And three
feet deeper, the new owner struck gold.
A little more persistence and the two
brothers would have been millionaires
themselves. There is gold in you, too. Do
you need to dig three feet farther?
