WILLIE JOLLEY’S QUOTE OF THE DAY: THE RICHEST PLACE IN THE WORLD!

THE RICHEST PLACE IN THE WORLD!

If I were to ask you, ‘‘Where is the richest place in the world?’’ I am sure that some would say the mint in Washington, D.C. Others would say Fort Knox, and others would say the gold and diamond mines that populate the African continent. But all would be wrong.
The richest place in the world is the graveyard! That’s right, the graveyard. In it lie all the people who had great ideas that would have made them wealthy, but they listened instead to some negative person who used the word ‘‘can’t’’ and they believed them. Then they took those great ideas with them to their graves! Their
best song . . . unsung! Their best invention . . . undone! Their best book . . . unwritten! Their best speech . . . ungiven! Why? Because they listened to some negative person who used the word ‘‘can’t.’’ Do not, I repeat, do not take your riches with you to your grave!

-Willie Jolley, excerpt from the book, It Only Takes A Minute To Change Your Life

  1. This is such a true statement. I fell for that negative word in my chilhood and now I’m a grown person thinking everything out before I act. Can’t will stop you cold when it comes from an authority figue like your parents. Thanks for the Quote of the day. It has given me new direction.
