Dig a better well and the world will beat a path to your door.
It’s true. The world is thirsty. And most don’t know what they are thirsty for.
Napoleon Hill studied successful people for twenty years to produce his book Think and Grow Rich. Apparently in the process he also talked with a few unsuccessful people.
This is what he said in the chapter on persistence:
Examine the first hundred people you meet, ask them what they want most in life, and ninety eight of them will not be able to tell you. If you press them for an answer some will say – SECURITY, many will say – MONEY, a few will say – HAPPINESS, others will say – FAME AND POWER, and still others will say – SOCIAL RECOGNITION, EASE IN LIVING, ABILITY TO SING, DANCE, or WRITE, but none of them will be able to define these terms, or give the slightest indication of a PLAN by which they hope to attain these vaguely expressed wishes.
Mr. Hill never addresses another thirst – SPIRITUAL.
No, people don’t know what they are thirsty for. But the world is thirsty.
Dig a well and they will come. And you will explore with them what it is they thirst for and you will help them dig their own well.
Everyone’s well looks different. Sometimes it takes digging several wells to find what it is they are truly needing.
This line of conversation reminds me of one of my favorite Bible stories. Jesus met a woman at the well. Because of who He is, He knew what she was thirsty for. But He had a conversation with her so she would figure out what – Who – she was thirsty for.
That is what I am doing.
I will be having a conversation with anyone who feels thirsty tomorrow morning, Saturday, 9 a.m. Mountain Time.
What do I mean by thirsty?
Curious to find out what my conversation will sound like.
Curious to find your well.
Curious to learn how together you and I can make the lives of others better.
Tired of your job.
Afraid that retirement won’t come.
Bored with not making a difference in lives.
