Three Feet From Gold - Turn Your Obstacles Into Opportunities


I just finished reading this phenomenal book: Three Feet From Gold – Turn Your Obstacles Into Opportunities….

If you haven’t read this book, you might be wondering to yourself what in the world does Three Feet From Gold actually mean?


“There is gold within three feet from where you stand now, so stay away from self-pity, stop playing victim, and whatever you do – keep digging. It’s your turn!”

This remarkable books shares a fascinating story, presenting key success principles of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich.

Offering a formula and workbook section for achieving success in life.

You will follow the story of Greg, a struggling entrepreneur, through a series of life changing encounters with some of today’s most powerful business leaders and inspirational figures.

You will learn of Greg and his partner Mia’s experience’s, with many ups and downs on their journey.

Along the way you’ll find encouragement and motivation to believe in yourself, discover your own personal success equation and to never give up no matter what the circumstances.


You are just Three Feet From Gold!


Three Feet From Gold’s Success Equation is this:


((P + T) x A x A) +F = Success Equation


P: Passion

T: Talent

A: Association

A: Action

F: Faith


Combine your Passion – something that makes your heart sing, with your Talent – something you excel in, multiply it by the right Association of people or organizations you surround yourself with, and Action – concrete steps towards your goal and then add Faith – the unwavering belief in yourself, and you will have your own unique Success Equation.


Remember the classic gold story that Napoleon Hill shares in Think And Grow Rich?

So many people quit when they are just Three Feet From Gold.


Three Feet From Gold will reunite your flame, fueling you to keep moving forward towards success no matter what the circumstances are……..UNTIL.


“People doubt their beliefs,

but believe their doubts.

Believe in yourself,

and the world will believe in you.”


You truly are only Three Feet From Gold.

I’ll be reading more of your content in the near future.
