Discover Your Hidden Treasure

by Scott

Nothing you could ever lose can leave you feeling more poverty stricken and desolate than losing your awareness of the wealth that is within you.

Recently, there were reportsgoldfever that the legendary Nazi train said to be laden with treasure and armaments has been located. Explorers in southwestern Poland have been digging in search of a local legend claiming a Nazi “gold train” that disappeared in a mountain tunnel as the Germans escaped the advancing Soviet army at the end of World War II.

The two men claimed last year to have located the elusive train with radar equipment deep in the bowels of the earth in the city of Walbrzych, sparking a gold rush to the castle city and the surrounding area.

Legends of gold to be discovered have always captured the imaginations of people. I can remember as a small boy my grandpa taking my brother and I on a local treasure hunt with a metal detector in hand to mountains to a place called Devils Head located here in Colorado. As legend had it, there was a train robbery many years prior of gold coins coming from the Denver mint.

The robbers were in fear of being caught which did happen, buried their treasure below a tree and marked the spot with an axe was stuck in the tree above. The problem was that there was a forest fire while they served time in prison which removed any signs of the coins.

treasureMy grandfather played it up pretty big to us kids and we relished the idea of discovering a metal box full of gold coins. It's amazing how excited we as humans become at the possibility of finding hidden treasure. The truth of the matter is that there is a greater treasure that awaits to be discovered and it's not under some rock The treasure I am talking about is the treasure that lies on the inside of us. There is nothing that can be compared to the wealth and treasure that is hidden within.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "What lies behind you and what lies before you are small matters compared to what lies within you."

Just what is this treasure that is hidden within? I call it your unrealized potential. It is the dreams, ambitions and desires that you never took action on.  The sad truth is that we have in many cases settled for less than what could have been ours. Our culture in many ways has conditioned us to become consumer minded rather than producer minded. We have stopped allowing our imaginations to roam freely where it concerns our potential.

 I heard someone say that no matter how big your dream is, you must eventually wake up if you're going to bring it to pass! The truth is that no matter what you are thinking about doing there comes a point in your life where you have to stop dreaming and do what you were born to do.
 .
Here are three key points to help you get started.
  1. Stop disqualifying yourself - This is something that everyone deals with. "I'm too young", "I'm too old", "I'm not educated", "I've had too many failures", "I lack the knowledge." Abraham in the Bible found his confidence in God's word to him. God took him to the stars count them, then he was told to count the sand by the shoreline. God told him, so shall your seed be. Abraham became persuaded by what God told him and it was counted to him as righteousness.
    .
  2. Don't let your past dictate your future - Abraham had every reason to find reason to not have a child. Instead he chose to not allow is past or present dictate to him. "And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb" Rom. 4:19
    .
  3. Take action on what excites you - It is said that a man with a dream needs no alarm clock. This perhaps could be a major reason for the level of usage of anti-depressants in our society. As a nation we have "opted out" where it concerns the treasure purpose and potential and as a result we lack the motivation and thrill that pursuing one's dream creates.

The last thing I would strongly suggest is that you simply get started and then don't quit! Will you fail? Most probably... It is part of the growing process. But as you continue to move forward, the road ahead will become clearer and more invigorating as you discover the treasure that lies within.
