In the process of starting my own business, I realize that there are challenges in my life that I need to overcome in order to be successful. One of them is ‘talking to people’. I did not realize that this simple task was a challenge for me until I started my Business, and it became ‘mandatory’ for me to interact with people. While I sat here contemplating who I should call and how I should present my product, I felt crippled. How am I ever going to be successful if I can’t even speak?
I decided to pass time (again) by browsing my Facebook, after I made a cup of coffee, and send the kids off to school. Oh, I think I should clear off this area of my desk so I can focus a little better. The list goes on and on. …And before you know it… another day has gone by.
One of my favorite motivational speaker made this post on Facebook (yes, one of my distractions). I decided to blog about it (another one of my better distractions) before I get to work. I wanted this quote in my blog so I can always have access to it; and others can be motivated by it as well.

Decide to make your life a living adventure. Is your life what you want it to be? Let’s look at the greatest adventure you could ever possibly imagine.
Stop for a moment and think about what it means to be alive. By virtue of being alive, you can sense, you can reason, you can move from place to place, you can make decisions, you can create, you can inspire, you can know joy, laughter and beauty…. When you think about it, every moment of every day is an incredible adventure, overflowing with possibilities. Yet too often, we just take life for granted, letting it pass by in boredom and frustration. What a waste.There is a priceless magnificent adventure waiting for you right now. Its your life. Take a look around you. There are countless places to be explored, people to meet, things to be learned and challenges that will give you strength and fulfillment. There is so much to be lived and experienced. You could spend a thousand lifetimes doing it all.So, resolve right now to fill your one lifetime with as much living as possible. Take delight in the adventure. You have something special. YOU have GREATNESS with YOU.–Les Brown
