So whether you are working from home, busy creating multiple income streams, developing passive income opportunities or simply wanting to motivate yourself to do more and have more, here are some inspirational quotes for you. Pick your favourites!

Your Acres of Diamonds
Earl Nightingale narrated a true story of a farmer who had acres of diamond in his farm without knowing it. This farmer had heard tales about how settlers had made millions by discovering diamond mines. The farmer got so excited about these stories that he sold his farm and went in search of diamonds.
Unfortunately he spent the rest of his life wondering and searching unsuccessfully for the gems. Broke and desperate, the farmer drowned himself.
One day the person who bought the farm found a large stone in the stream within the farm. It turned out that the stone was indeed a diamond of enormous value and that the stream on the farm was covered in them. The farm was to become the world’s richest diamond mines.
The farmer who committed suicide had sold his farm in desperate pursuit of diamond and wealth elsewhere, without realising that he was sitting on one.
Are you standing in the middle of your own acres of diamond and about to quit?
