Just keep going

I was just reminded of the story about the gold mine that kept digging for gold but eventually quit because they couldn't find any. So, the mine sold off of to whoever would buy it. The new owner bought them mine expecting to use the land for some other use. But, just to make sure there was no gold in the mine, the new owner brought in an expert to take a look. The expert made a thorough inspection and then came to a surprising conclusion. If the new owner would dig for a little longer in one of the most recent tunnels that had been dug, they would strike gold. Now the new owner thought the expert was wrong, but just in case, he brought some miners in and kept digging just to see what would happen. The result was the discovery of a huge mother load of gold. The moral of the story is that sometimes you just got to keep going before you strike it rich.

What do you think?
