Do you remember when you were a kid and you thought you could do anything? A time when nothing seemed impossible and everything was within your reach?

That time is right now. We live in a place where one individual can make a difference, where nothing is impossible, and when it’s never too late to start living a dream.

Our country was built on the foundation of individuals who didn’t have money or a plan – all they had was the desire to go above and beyond, to do something that hadn’t been done, to stop thinking and start doing. The United States of America was discovered by entrepreneurs, individuals who sought to change their lives and in turn, changed the world as we know it.

Entrepreneurs change the way we think about what is possible. They maintain a clear vision of how life can be better for all of us, even through the darkest of times. They understand that obstacles, turbulence, and even failure leads to opportunities for success and achievement. They shake things up, bring chaos to the established order, and push us to discover new ways of doing things

The risks may be great, but the rewards – changing peoples lives, creating jobs, fueling growth, and making a better world – are that much greater.

Entrepreneurs are everywhere. Within each of us is a desire to do something great. We all want to leave a lasting impression, establish a legacy, and have a significant impact on others’ lives. But for whatever reason, we allow our doubt, confusion, and fear hold us back. Maybe today is the day you start doing something you’ve always wanted. It’s not all about launching a business.

Let today be the day you start that project you’ve been putting off.

Write the blog post you’ve been worrying that everyone will think is stupid.

Say hello to the girl across the street who you’ve been dying to talk to.

Quit your job and move to the city you’ve always dreamed of living in.

Or better yet, start your own business and move to Europe!

Step outside your comfort zone – stop waiting, stop thinking, and start doing.

Because in the end, that’s the only way things will start happening.

Remember when you were a kid. When everything was within your reach. And then say to yourself quietly, but with determination: IT STILL IS!
