Finding Free Money!

  I wanna tell you two quick stories about finding free money. Now this first one, the details are a little fuzzy, but this is what I remember: When I was little, there were these things called pay phones, and once upon a time, I found a coin in the coin return slot of a pay phone. As a result, every time I passed a pay phone, I felt the need to check the coin return slot. Just in case there was money in it. Looking back, I’m gonna guess that somebody like me left the coin there because they knew that some kid would be thrilled when he or she found it. Now the details of this second story, well, they’re not so fuzzy: I was walking along a beach in Hawaii, and there was a dollar bill right where the water meets the sand. It was gently moving in and out with the waves. I looked around. Nobody seemed to have lost it, so I picked it up. And I find two things about this story to be fascinating. Number 1:  I don’t remember hardly anything else from that trip, but the memory of finding that dollar is burned into my mind. Number 2: To this day, I can’t walk along a beach without looking for money, and I’ve walked on a lot of beaches since finding that dollar, and I’ve never found anymore money. This fascinates me! Why did one dollar have such an impact on me? Is it because I got something for nothing? Everybody knows that there’s no free lunch. Doesn’t everybody know that the rewards that we get in this life are directly related to the amount we contribute? Here’s the good news: I was able to enjoy my good fortune, and then move on with life. I didn’t spend the rest of my life, trying to get something for nothing, looking for a quick buck and missing out on life! And neither should you! Realize that, in general, we have to sow before we reap. Let me close this Golden Nugget by asking you this, “Do you waste your time trying to get something for nothing? What is it about you that, if you’re given enough time, will reveal to everybody that you are a winner?”
