We’ve all heard about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and even though there are thousands of drawings and pictures of this concept, most of us realize that it’s just symbolism.

The pot of gold is usually a symbol of the happiness and joy that is in all of us, even though it is sometimes difficult for some of us to find it. In the end, it is within all of us to find our own pot of gold, and this article will help you do just that.

How to Find a Pot of Gold?

Finding a pot of gold is priceless, but just how is this done? Everyone deserves to be happy and live a fulfilled life, but some of us aren’t quite sure how to do that.

Fortunately, if you want to find your own pot of gold, it’s much easier if you learn a few basic rules. Once you have a “map” you can soon be on your way to finding your own pot of gold, and below are some starters.

1.  Know in Your Heart That It’s Out There

Before you can accomplish any of your dreams or goals, you have to believe in your heart that you deserve it and that it’s possible to do what you’re setting out to do.

Your attitude is the most important tool you have when you’re trying to accomplish goals, so once you make up your mind that you deserve to get what you want out of life, you’re off to a great start.

2.  Develop a Specific Plan to Get What You Want

To achieve a goal, you have to have a specific plan, preferably in writing. Write down not only your very specific goals, but very specific steps that are required to achieve those goals.

Write down dates to meet those goals, but don’t worry about the dates because even if you take a little longer on one of the steps, you’ll be fine as long as you keep going.

3.  Never Give Up

This is sometimes easier said than done, but it’s one of the most-important things to remember when you want to make the most out of your life.

Walt Disney was once told he had no drawing talent and he should give it up, but can you imagine where we’d be now if he had given up and listened to that piece of advice? If you know in your heart you can achieve something, go for it!

4.  Always Enjoy Your Journey

Part of the fun of accomplishing your goals is getting to that point. Revel in every step that you succeed at on the way to your pot of gold.

Think of the rainbow as a fun way to slide down closer to that pot of gold, and enjoy the ride. If you need to stop and pamper yourself for a while or regroup, that’s all right, but enjoy every step you take on the way to the gold.

5.  Realize There Is Sometimes More Than One Pot

While many people have a goal that they are intent on achieving, many others want to achieve more than one goal, and that’s even better.

Also, once you achieve a certain goal, you might be the type of person who wants to create new goals so you can do even more with your life. That’s even better, so always have a Plan B for that glorious day when you achieve a special goal.

How Much Would a Pot of Gold Be Worth?

In case you’re wondering what a pot of gold would be worth monetarily, here is the breakdown: Let’s say your pot is 10 inches high and 9-10 inches in diameter. That would hold roughly 270 ounces of gold.

As of this writing, gold is selling for around $1,992 per ounce, which means that particular pot of gold would be worth more than $535,000.

Of course, since the pot of gold most people refer to is figurative, it’s more likely that its true price cannot be determined. In fact, if we achieve our goals in the end, we can easily declare that the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is, quite literally, priceless!

If I Found a Pot of Gold I Would …

What would you do if you found a pot of gold? The answer likely depends on which of the following questions you’re really asking yourself:

What would I do if I came across $535,000?


What would I do if I actually achieved my biggest and most-important goals?

People who come across a lot of money typically spend it on huge items that they normally wouldn’t be able to afford, which usually includes lavish vacations, huge homes, paying off every single bill they have, or even buying cars or homes for people who are special to them. These are not unusual desires, so it’s no secret why they are so commonplace.

On the other hand, if you sit back and try to imagine how you would feel if you finally accomplished a goal, you’ll realize how special that is.

Keep in mind that a goal doesn’t have to be huge or difficult to accomplish for it to be something special. Many people have goals such as going back and finishing high school or college, saving up enough money to go to Europe, or anything else you’ve been dreaming of.

If people do dream about what they’d do if they found a literal pot of gold so that they have the money they need to fulfill their dreams, some commonplace dreams include:

  • Going on a cruise with family or friends
  • Buying a mansion or yacht
  • Quitting work and doing the things you enjoy doing
  • Putting a lot of the money in the bank to pay for a child’s education
  • Hiring a financial advisor so you can keep more of the money
  • Traveling all over the world

By the way, the writer of this article would purchase a large log cabin in the mountains of northwestern North Carolina and spend her days writing the next great American novel – or novels! Regardless of what you choose yourself, just remember that you deserve to go after it!

Spend Time on Your Dreams

Some people are so busy working and taking care of their family that they sometimes forget that they have dreams, too.

While being a responsible worker and parent is important and noble, it’s imperative that everyone has a dream to go after so that life is more than just have-tos. You deserve to have dreams and to go after your dreams so you can eventually accomplish them.


The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not a literal pot of gold, of course, but a symbol that represents what you want to do with your life.

If you write down your goals and determine the steps necessary to achieve them, decide to never give up, and realize that you deserve to do what you want with your life, you’re on your way to happiness.

This is why most people, at some point in their lives, admit that the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is quite literally priceless.
