Russell Conwell’s “Acres of Diamonds”

Ever since the “Words Of Wisdom – Can You Get Rich? (thanks Felix Dennis)” post, I’ve been listening to things that inspired me years ago. You see, for almost 7 years now I’ve stopped listening to all the Self Help and Personal development stuff because I went into implementation and thought what the heck do I need to listen to this crap for. I just need to do it. But, recently when I listened to the words of Felix I then realized, the self help and personal development stuff got me though tough times and helped me early on with inspiration to be someone.

I also remembered that when I was a little kid my parents always listened to things like that and I always wondered if it had an effect on me always wanting to be an entrepreneur. So, now that I have kids I figured why not start listening to motivational things again because maybe going into their minds early will help facilitate there success in the future at what ever it may be…

Below you will find a video called: Acres of Diamonds.

My family and I have been listening to this as we drive together and I wanted to share it with you. I got the CD of this at B&N for 19.95 but you can hear it for FREE. I’ve also added some links of places you can read it or just listen to it instead of watching it below. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It really gets me thinking.

Please feel free to post a comment on my blog about this post, or what you think about Russell Conwell’s “Acres of Diamonds”. Personally, I think it’s as good today as it was when it was written back in 1890.
