How would you like to become a master of creating the kind of life you dream about? You’ve got killer ideas in that head of yours, but my guess is you aren’t taking action to make them happen. Crazy, right?! Stop overthinking and start doing something about...

You read inspirational quotes about making a living pursuing your passion, but then you start thinking about the bills you have to pay and the people in your life who depend on you.  We're all pretty good at talking ourselves out of the things we want most, aren't we? We all have a passion.  That one thing we can't go a day without thinking about and deep down believe is necessary to create and get out into the world.  Some people figure out how to pursue it while others choose to believe there is no way they can achieve their dreams. I believe that whether you own a business or work for someone else, you can start something that provides the opportunity to fulfill your passion which is why I was very drawn to author and speaker, Pamela Slim.  I had the opportunity to meet her at a conference last year and she is awesome. Her blog, Escape From Cubicle Nation, has been recognized as one of the best business blogs around.  First of all, the name alone is pretty cool and resonates with many people and second, her content is extremely helpful to anyone who is looking to start something new and figure out a way to pursue work they enjoy doing.

Learn a new language, read more, volunteer, start a blog, change careers, start investing your money, etc.?  You think about it every day and your intention is always to get started. In fact, most days you believe that today will be that day. But then you get out of bed and the craziness of life happens and before you know it another day has passed and you are no closer to accomplishing that one idea you are passionate about pursuing. Why do we do this?  Why do we allow ourselves to get comfortable with the way things are instead of taking even one small step towards the things we want most? It is so easy to go about our days doing the same thing over and over.  We are creatures of habit and get comfortable with our routines.  This isn't always a bad thing, but when we have a desire to make changes in our lives and start something new, we have to be bold and step outside of our comfort zone.
