Your Success Quote of the Day!

Hello all,

I was just sitting here thinking that there is a ton of information out there on all aspects of Real Estate Investing.

Seems most of us can remember a quote or two that drives us.

If you have a good quote, please post it after mine and share the wisdom you have used to drive you to success. This can be very motivational to all.

“The Best money you will ever invest is the money that you invest in your personal development. Dedicate yourself to the learning process”

A quote I live by. :wink:

“Make Money or Make Excuses” :wink:
