My First Ten Thousand!

That's amazing, keep it up!  I only started my mustache about a half year ago as well and my NW has doubled since then!  That was pretty satisfying to watch.

Jim Rohn is quoted as saying something like becoming a millionaire is great not just because you get the million, but because of what you become during the process.

Think of what you have become in the process of achieving your $10k. It will serve you for the next $100k and on and on.

One more quote:

"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal."  - Earl Nightingale

Congratulations to you on your success.

Great quote even if it is a paraphrase.
