Around the turn, the century near the town of Beaumont, Texas, a landowner was forced to sell his land to feed his family. Then an oil company told him there could be oil on his property and offered to pay him royalties if he would permit them to drill. The land owner agreed because he had nothing to lose.
When the well came in, it destroyed the wooden derrick, creating enormous excitement. Before they could cap the well, several hundred thousand barrels of oil had pumped out. That was the discovery of “Spindletop,” the most productive single oil well in history.
The landowner became an instant multimillionaire or did he?
The answer is real “no”. You see, he had been a multimillionaire ever since he had owned the property. Unfortunately, he had no knowledge of that fact and consequently did not capitalize on it. Inside of all of us, there is incredible ability and talent, much of which is never recognized and used. Therefore, get acquainted with yourself. Recognize, develop, and use what you have got. Who knows – maybe there is a “Spindletop” underneath. You have certainly got nothing to lose by doing a little drilling and exploiting.
Who knows what might come to the surface?
