“Three feet from gold”

One of the most common causes of failures is the habit of quitting when one is overtaken

by temporary defeat. Every person is guilty of this mistake at one time or another.

Mr. Darby, remembering that he lost a huge fortune because he stopped three feet from gold,

Darby profited by the experience in his chosen work, by the simple method of saying to himself,

“I stopped three feet from gold, but I will never stop because men say “NO” when I ask them to buy insurance”
