1st of the Month Motivational: Don't Limit Yourself

       Similiar to the story of "The Social Network", everything starts with an "idea".  How you came about that idea is some what relevant, but that is not the focus of this post.  It is the thought that "If you can believe it, you can achieve it"!
       A year ago this month I domained my blogspot account to TalkstillCheap.com.  I remember sitting with a close friend of mine, (shoutout ABC) just discussing "small" ideas about how I wanted to increase my readership.  I was just thinking a few t-shirts and some facebook posts, not really thinking about the full potential of this site.  To me, it was just a small piece of my world, I believed if just one person could relate to it or learn something from it, then job well done.  The blog has surpassed all that expectation.
       Not only do I have a dedicated following and readers (new comers wouldn't know because my readers hardly comment on posts ;) ), I advertise on the site and through my site's brand, and I have been nominated for a few blog awards.  I am throwing my first TalkstillCheap.com benefit event this month (stay tuned for details) and hope to have more to come.  With this expansion hopefully comes increased readership and therefore more frequent posts updates.
       I said all of this to say, keep your mind and your eyes open!!!  Open to new adventures, new information, new ideas, and new possibilities.  We can become so wrapped up in our everyday routine and people telling us the life we settle for is "how its suppose to be, and how it always will be".  Explore new options, go where no man has gone before or take the road less traveled.  Who are you not to be brilliant?  Who are you not to be the next youngest Billionaire?  Who are you not to event the "next big thing"?  It could be you, who's stopping you besides yourself?

THINK BIG!!!
