Gold Diggers are both male and female,despite the stereotypical view that they are usually female. Women are just as likely to find a male latch onto them for their money as a man is. Gold digging is also not restricted to heterosexual relationships. Some people love money and the trappings of success but have a lazy streak, so they would rather find a free ride than pay for their own.
The good news is that Gold diggers are not hard to spot but the bad news is that easy targets for Gold Diggers are even easier to spot!
If you have a lot of money and you are one of these people that loves and enjoys money, glittery objects and big flashy cars etc. then you are a Gold Diggers wet dream because straight away you have something in common! Your other characteristics might include generosity and a mind set that ‘you get what you pay for’.
You might be a big tipper, buy more rounds than the rest of your pals, generally throwing the money around. You do this because you are generous but also because of the attention it brings and you do like attention don’t you! So a nice ‘expensive’ bit of arm candy made not be such a bad trade off right?
Often wealthy men and women have no objection to funding their gold digging partner in exchange for their company if that person is very attractive and makes them look good. Much like the new car makes them look good.
But what happens when the money runs dry or you can nolonger keep up with a gold diggers expensive tastes and needs? Do you think they will stick around? Not likely. They will bleed you dry, accuse you of ruining their life by depriving them of their luxury lifestyle and then they will be off to find their next source of gold!
So if you fit the description above, think twice before happily acquiring an attractive partner on the understanding that you fund their entire lifestyle. The pleasant company will only last as long as the gifts and money keep coming, then the laugh will turn to a scowl.

1. They didn’t use excuses.
We all have two voices. There’s the voice that tells us to work hard, to focus on the task at hand and to finish it before we move on to the next. And to finish it well.
We also have the voice that tells us to take a break, to think about what’s on TV, or to visit a site that we like to visit that entertains us – whether it’s ESPN.com or facebook.
In life we’re the victim of injustice from time to time. It could be a promotion that we deserve but don’t get. No matter who we are, we’re going to be treated unfairly at some point. We can either feel sorry for ourselves, or push forward and put it behind us – even use it as motivation.
Nelson Mandela could have used his unjust imprisonment as an excuse to give into his anger. Instead, he used it as an opportunity to learn, grow, and eventually free others.
Listen to your excuses. Understand why you have them. Then figure out how you can use them for good.
2. It wasn’t just about them.
‘Things’ can be a motivator, they can even be a reward, but they can’t be the motivator. The truly successful in life always get there because they created change in the lives of others, not just their own.
If something drives you that is greater than just the ‘ends’, we’re going to work harder, longer, and we’re going to give more of ourselves to our project.
Yes we can make money when we have the primary goal of making money. Some might even use that money for good – which is awesome. But there’s no fulfillment in simply making money. And isn’t that the point?
3. Early mornings and late nights.
People who have achieved true success in their lives have worked for it.
This might come at the detriment of other areas of their lives, such as family or social life. But their mission is first and foremost. Until it’s complete, everything else comes second.
There’s literally no substitute for hard work. Abraham Lincoln said, “Things may come to those who wait… but only the things left by those who hustle.” If you want to be successful, you’re going to have to out hustle everyone else.
