26 Epic Insights All Real Estate Investors Need To Think About

by Seth Williams on December 24, 2013 · 27 comments

Epic Insights

One of the greatest resources we have is the wisdom of those who have come before us. There are a lot of things we can learn from people who have proven their aptitude to the world and made it to the top in their fields of expertise.

Every so often, I’ll come across an epic quote from one of these people. The words are ripe with wisdom and they instantly resonate with me because I know in my core that these are words of truth. In this post, I wanted to share with you some of these ideas that I’ve come across this past year. These are words that have hit me like a ton of bricks and caused me to sit back and say, “Wow.” Perhaps some of these ideas will resonate with you as well…

Awesome! I love the Eisntein quote. It’s hard to fail if you don’t give up.


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:46 am

Thanks Mark! I love that one too – pure brilliance.


Joshua Dorkin December 27, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Thanks for sharing the post on Reddit, Mark! We all appreciate it.

Well done. Merry Christmas!


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:52 am

Thanks Trevor – Merry Christmas to you and yours!


Julie Oldham December 24, 2013 at 10:25 am

These made my day. Thanks!


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:51 am

Awesome, glad these quotes could help. Thanks Julie!


Brandon Turner December 24, 2013 at 1:13 pm

Awesome, Seth! I love the quote from Francis Chan the most. He’s a good guy – one of my favorite speakers.


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:48 am

I’m with you Brandon – Francis Chan is an awesome speaker/writer/thinker/etc. That guy has contributed a lot of powerful things to the world. “Crazy Love” is easily one of the most challenging & thought-provoking books I’ve read in the past 5 years.

Thank you so much for these pearls. These will help offset all the bad advice I get from relatives and friends at Xmas


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:50 am

Haha – thanks Chuck! There are definitely a lot of messages that come our way as real estate investors. It takes a lot of discernment to figure out which ones we’re going to listen to and which ones we need to ignore. Good luck!


Roy Schauer December 25, 2013 at 11:04 am

Merry Christmas and thank you for the reminders of why we do what we do!


Seth Williams December 26, 2013 at 11:51 am

No problem Roy – Merry Christmas to you too!

Thanks Giovanni – thanks for stopping by and checking them out!


Joseph Cox December 26, 2013 at 10:14 pm

Some words of wisdom there. Thanks for sharing them, Seth.


Seth Williams December 27, 2013 at 8:05 am

No problem Joseph – thanks for reading. :)


Sharon Vornholt December 27, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Seth -

That’s a great group of quotes. I especially love the one from Steven Covey.

You can only blame your parents and the circumstances of your life so long for all the bad things that show up in your life. Then you have to “man up” and admit it’s your decisions that have led you to where you are today. The good thing about that is that it is totally within your control to make changes and get different results.

Oh – and the last one; I’m not leaving until you say yes. I love that one. Happy New Year.



Seth Williams December 27, 2013 at 6:34 pm

Thanks Sharon! I agree – Stephen Covey was a profoundly great thinker. Thanks for your comment, and have a Happy New Year!


Shaun December 31, 2013 at 9:38 am

Great collection of quotes.
Lots are classics that are great to hear again bit also would say almost half I hadn’t seen before. Even better!
Happy New Year!


Seth Williams December 31, 2013 at 12:43 pm

That’s awesome! Glad I could bring a few NEW words of wisdom to your attention. Thanks Shaun!

Thanks Angel, I’m glad you liked them!


Michael January 5, 2014 at 2:29 pm

Great quotes here Seth. Thanks for sharing. I recently used the Henry Ford one in a presentation at my MeetUp. I love this one.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”
― Henry Ford

All the best in 2014.


Seth Williams January 7, 2014 at 8:20 am

That’s awesome Michael! Henry Ford had a ton of great quotes over the years. I’m glad you found that one to be helpful & applicable. :)


Ali Boone January 9, 2014 at 12:27 am
