Is there a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

We are always looking for it.

Lottery tickets, betting on something, looking for the shortcuts, trying to find a way to get to the pot of gold.

Yet our pot of gold is on our hands every day of our life, we just have to invest in getting it.

Invest the time and effort in ourselves and our dreams, work on it every day, trying to improve and get better.

There are no shortcuts that are worthwhile.

The long-term game is the only one to play and you will then get to your pot of gold, whatever ‘gold’ is for you, maybe happiness, joy, fulfilment, meaning…..If it’s money, then perhaps carry on trying to find the end of the rainbow, or buy more lottery tickets.

Hard work, commitment, discipline, passion, determination, applying learning, patience and love will bring gold.


If we feel that something is missing from our lives, its unlikely we’ll find the answer in a machine full of marketing promises of a shower of money. 

Yet people queued in their hundreds for a chance to win something. 

If you’re alive you have everything you need and appreciate what you have, not what you don’t. 

We have all the opportunities we will ever need right in front of us. 

It’s a choice whether we look for them and work to realise them. 

Money solves nothing. 

Shortcuts are sold to us with the fake promise of a certain ‘x’. 

Commitment to our dreams leaves our destiny firmly in our control and with it comes a fulfilling purpose to our life.

Each of us has already won the jackpot. It’s today, now, our life. 

Enjoy it.
