One of the most interesting Americans who lived in 19th century was a man by the name of Russell Herman Conwell. He was born in 1843 and lived until 1925. He was a lawyer for about 15 years until he became a clergyman.

When Doctor Russell H. Conwell talked about each of us being right on our own acre of diamonds he meant it. This story does not get old...it will be true forever.... Opportunity does not just come along. It is there all the time - we just have to see it.

    " Based on a speech originally given as a lecture to raise money for what would become Temple University, this parable about seeing the riches around you can help give you a new perspective. Short and powerful (the book is much like "Who Moved My Cheese" in that it is brief, but contains an important lesson told in the form of a story) "Acres of Diamonds" will force you to take a new look at your own backyard when looking for opportunity. The basic story revolves around a Persian farmer who loses his life and significant wealth looking for a mine of diamonds when, ironically, his own farm land (which he sold to finance his search for diamonds) literally contained acres of diamonds. Conwell gives several other examples of similar stories revolving around gold, oil, etc. The grass isn't always greener on the other side...don't discount where you are, what you know and the relationships that you already have too quickly. Rambles a bit, but it's still a great story with a timeless message. "
