First off...HAPPY 4TH!
The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays, in fact, that's why Tim & I got married on the 1st of July, it was actually where the "4th" weekend fell and we had a big bash at the beach at Siesta Key in Sarasota (now come on, who else's wedding do you know of had volleyball, bathing suits, a cake fight, and a keg of beer? It really was a wedding and reception right on the beach...it was awesome!
Anyways, one of my friends, Dustin Matthews, sent me this quote from Calvin Coolidge, our 30th president of the United States (he was president from 1923-1929), and I thought it was fitting to send to you today for 2 reasons...
First: Today was Calvin's Birthday! Yep, the only President to be born on the 4th of July
Second: I thought it was a good sentiment for those of us in the Real Estate industry... there are many signs that our market is finally coming back, especially in Florida...don't give up right before the tide turns!
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not.
Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not.
Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not.
The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
