Impossible isn’t something that can’t be done.
It’s just something that hasn’t been done before.
As an Entrepreneur you cannot keep saying that you plan to start a business someday and wake up and realize that 3 years have passed and you have nothing to show for it. It takes push and action to make something a reality. Wishing for something does not make it so, only action. If you just keep saying you will but never do it, then you will spend all your time with everyone else in the valley of dreams where nothing is real and only the wrinkles on your face are all you have to show for your time here on earth. Go on an adventure! It doesn’t have to be far at first, just a day trip somewhere. You might surprise yourself who you can be. Even if you have kids don’t use them as a handicap for holding you back, their not. They are some of your greatest inspiration. It will make them happy to see their parents reach their goal.
For these people below in the links they did just that and accomplished something they will remember for the rest of their lives. It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day life, always telling ourselves that one day we will go see the world. It’s not enough to think that a two week vacation somewhere means your cultured, it’s just the American way of seeing the world. But for these individuals, they did not let life stand in the way, they took charge and this is what they have to show for it.
Adventures from Around the World

This guy used his GoPro camera to take awesome 360 degree selfies around the world
It’s no surprise that there are people who like learning and there are those that don’t. Infact, science has shown now that it requires a lot of mental energy in order to learn something new. It takes true concentration in order to listen, I mean really know how to listen, and be able to comprehend, digest the content, and be able to retain it. You can see why some people believe that getting up and going about their day doing their own thing is enough for them instead of the need to find time to have to sit down and learn something new.
For those that view learning as a pleasurable activity and crave it, there is a place you can go to listen to some of the greatest minds speak their mind and it all happens within the magical space of 18 minutes. If you want to know why only 18 minutes I encourage you to perform a search on it and see what you find. I didn’t include a link this time because it’s important to know how to find information on your own.
You always want to see what other great minds are doing, this helps you to see what trends, research, and businesses are being created by other entrepreneurs. You might have an idea to start a program that provides support to recent college grads, but after watching one of the TED videos you might learn that someone else is already doing that. You can either offer to join their team or compete against their by creating your own business model. The idea is you should always be curious to learn what other people are doing and how they went about making it come true.
The links below are all connected to one place with one purpose, to share an idea.
This is a partial list of some of the best TED talks ever given. Try to include at least one TED talk into your daily life and you will be all the better for it because it means that the knowledge you take away from their talk is put forth in the work you do in this world. You might not be an educator, like I am, but after listening to Sir Ken Robinson you’ve learned that schools kill creativity and that there is a need to balance the shortfall of schools. If you take away something from these videos it will only be to better the world and yourself.
Never Stop Learning
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
