“You Are A Big Deal” -Kent Carter

My father is a wonderful speaker and writer. I love hearing his stories and his thoughts on his life. He isn’t afraid of a big fish story here or there, but I sure love hearing his stories no matter their veracity. I particularly liked this post, and I thought it was worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it too.

*Oh by the way – if you’re looking to get a home loan or refinance your house he should be your man. He was the president of the Oklahoma Mortgage Bankers Association, and he’s the salt of the earth. Anywho, i hope you enjoy his thoughtfulness. Kent Carter, First Capital Mortgage (405)361-2902


17 Warren Buffett Quotes That Will Inspire You to Remarkable Success and Happiness

17 Warren Buffett Quotes That Will Inspire You to Remarkable Success and Happiness

If you are looking for a great follow on Twitter I highly recommend following Warren Buffett. Mr. Buffett is a very helpful influence for me in two way: inspiration, motivation. I actively seek voices that encourage me to challenge myself, and to achieve. If I simply look for motivational voices I find myself listening to voices that can be disingenuous, or exhausting. I also hope to find voices that will encourage me to feel inspired to love myself and those around me, and to enjoy my life. There is plenty that could be said about the ills of vast wealth disparity, but I like prefer to start from the classic of not hating the player, but the game. Warren Buffett not only has treasure, but he himself seems to be a treasure in many ways. Feel free to share this link if you agree, and I hope you have a wonderful day.



17 Warren Buffett Quotes That Will Inspire You to Remarkable Success and Happiness

Learn valuable lessons for success and happiness from one of today’s truly great businesspeople.

It’s no secret that Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors and businesspeople in the world. However, what is not as well known is that he is also one of the happiest.

While Buffett has built remarkable wealth over the decades, his feet are still firmly planted on the ground. He still lives in the same home in Omaha, Nebraska that he purchased in 1958 for $31,500, he has a soft spot for Utz potato sticks and Cherry Coca-Cola, and he still stops by a local strip mall every once in a while to play bridge with his friends.

So, who better than Warren Buffett to learn valuable lessons on success–and happiness? Here are 17 thoughts from Warren Buffett to inspire and keep you moving forward.

1. “Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.”

2. “Honesty is a very expensive gift. Don’t expect it from cheap people.”

3. “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.”

4. “In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.”

5. “It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.”

6. “I don’t look to jump over seven-foot bars; I look around for one-foot bars that I can step over.”

7. “The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”

8. “The most important investment you can make is in yourself.”

9. “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”

10. “You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.”

11. “You know…you keep doing the same things and you keep getting the same result over and over again.”

12. “It is not necessary to do extraordinary things to get extraordinary results.”

13. “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

14. “You will be successful if the people who you hope to have love you, do love you.”

15. “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price.”

16. “The best thing I did was to choose the right heroes.”

17. “You’ve gotta keep control of your time, and you can’t unless you say no. You can’t let people set your agenda in life.”
