What can we all learn from Acres of Diamonds? Stuart Zadel re-tells the story and the lessons we can all learn from the famous speech by Dr. Russell H. Conwell.
In 1843, a man was born in Massachusetts, U.S.A. Unknown to him, his life was destined to have a profound effect on millions of people all over the world. It still does to this day.
ACRES OF DIAMONDS
That man’s name is Dr. Russell H. Conwell, and he delivered his most famous speech ‘Acres Of Diamonds’ more than 6,000 times across the United States.
Acres of Diamonds is a story of a wealthy farmer who had it all: a beautiful wife and family, good health, a great purpose in life, a productive farm, valuable assets, and a good reputation. But he left it behind in an attempt to become the richest man in the world. How? By finding diamond mines.
Sadly, the story does not end well for the farmer. He died penniless in a foreign land having exhausted his savings, all to no avail.
In the meantime, on his farm, the new owner discovers – you guessed it – diamonds. In fact, the most magnificent diamond mine in all of history.
Had the farmer remained at home and dug in his own backyard, under his own crop fields, he would have discovered Acres Of Diamonds – free and clear for the taking.
