Behind the Door

Life is a challenge!

The other day a good friend of mine told me she wished she could find a project she could be enthusiastic about.

Being in rather odd space myself, I understand what she means.

I have been dealing with some health issues and some daily-day-in-and-day-out-drama- of-did-I-really-sign-up-this?, that I find myself someplace between “wanting to understand” and “thinking I just don’t really care” So I guess you could say I feel all over the place, especially when it comes to wasting my energy on something not worthwhile.

I just want to be inspired……………… do you ever feel that way? Inspired by something in life. To feel that what I am putting in might actually feel like it is worth all my efforts….. or benefit someone else in the long run. To feel like there is actually something good behind the door.

For the past few years, I have sponsored a little league team of 10. They don’t wear my company logo or even know my name. It is not a competitive league they play in, it is not about box scores, hits or homeruns. It is a place where they learn that in life there is a higher value placed on character than on wins and losses.

That is my kind of team!

So back to trying to find a way to get interested in actually getting out of bed. I am hunting for a challenge.

Last month I sold something that I had stored in my garage for $75, I decided to challenge myself and see how much I could turn it into in a month’s time. So I made myself a little mini business plan and in 30 days I had turned that $75 into $400.

So it has me thinking what if you gave yourself $100 and 1 year. What could you do?

I know from my own experience you can do a lot in one year. I took over 10,000 photos in one year. And I managed to publish hundreds of them here in my blog and in other places. Could you at least prove to yourself that you have the character to succeed. To take something and turn it into more.

So that is my challenge I have given myself and anyone that wants to join in the fun, it only takes getting your hands on $100.

One Hundred Dollars and One Year!

You can do something that only you benefit from, perhaps you will use it as some kind of seed money for a project that turns into something more. Maybe in the end you pay off a dreaded credit card, maybe you help a family in need or your favorite charity. And maybe, just maybe, you might just start the next big thing.

I realize for some who read this $100 is really nothing, but for some of us, it is something and that can lead to something more.

What will you do?
How will you challenge yourself?
It could just change the way you see things and the way you value things.
