Are You Procrastorbating?

Yep, I really wrote that. It drives me crazy to see so many people with ridiculous amounts of talents sitting by the sidelines, paralyzed by fear. I have heard the reasons (I'm too old, too young, too fat, too thin, married, single, have 54 personalities, etc.) A good friend of mine went out on a limb and became a real estate investor. He didn't wait for the approval of everyone around him. He and his wife just did it. Within 7 months, he was able to quit his full time job and pursue his passion of real estate investing.

I know a young man who started a lawn care business at the age of 14. He hired a few buddies and invested into the business. Worked his tail off. By the time he was a senior in high school, he had accounts in excess of six figures!

It makes me sick to see so many people waiting for the government to solve all of their problems, cure all of their ills, and pay for everything from their home to their latte (wait...the Starbucks bailout is coming!!) It is time for us to be reminded that we are a nation and a world that is great because of the people, not because of the governments. We will excel and thrive when we take risks. We will learn from our mistakes.

My challenge is to have you make a list of 3 things you would love to do for extra money. It could be anything (legal, of course). Take some action within 10 minutes of reading this blog!! Stop Procrasterbating!
