"Opportunity does not just come along, it is there all the time - we just have to see it"

There was a farmer who lived in Africa,he had large farm covered with diamonds underneath. One day he heard from visitors looking for diamond to be rich, he got excited started searching for diamonds to be rich. Diamonds were already discovered in abundance on the African continent and this farmer got so excited about the idea of millions of dollars worth of diamonds so he decided to sell his farm unaware that he sold a farm of diamonds.

He sold his farm to get money to buy diamonds. He wandered all over the continent in Africa with his money looking for diamonds, as the years slipped by, constantly searching for diamonds, wealth, which he never found. Eventually he went completely broke and threw himself into a river and drowned.

Meanwhile, the new owner of the farm while digging he picked up an unusual looking rock about the size of a country egg and put it on his mantle as a sort of curiosity. A visitor stopped by and in viewing the rock practically went into terminal convulsions. He told the new owner of the farm that the funny looking rock on his mantle was about the biggest diamond that had ever been found. The new owner of the farm said, 'Heck, the whole farm is covered with them' - and sure enough it was.
The farm turned out to be the Kimberly Diamond Mine . . . the richest the world has ever known. The original farmer was literally standing on 'Acres of Diamonds' until he sold his farm and he lost.
Moral of the story: Each of us is right in the middle of our own 'Acre of Diamonds' or treasure house within if only we would realize it and develop the ground we are standing on before charging off in search of greener pastures.Opportunity does not just come along, it is there all the time - we just have to see it.
Don't sell yourself cheap, find yourself,improve yourself and be yourself. There are so much about you keep searching, don't settle.
