Have you ever asked yourself what you really wanted in life? Is there something that you really wanted and did things just to get it? 
I did. I know, once in your life, you did too. 
For me, it doesn't really matter if you succeed or failed. All that matters is you dared to try.

I was chatting with my friend Sherlene, and the talk was all about being great at something. We shared the same sentiment. We felt that we are better than what we are now. I know that I can't be an employee all my life. I don't want to work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, pay incredibly high taxes, budgeting a certain amount of money and not being there whenever my kids needed me.

Ben, a friend from Oz, who is a businessman himself, motivated me a lot. He even told me that he believes I am destined for something great. He gave me sites that could help me, gave me list of books to read and he showered me with inspiring thoughts and ideas about putting up a business. Before, I told him that I just want enough. Enough that I can send my kids to school, save a little for their future,buy things that we need and wanted, and treat ourselves from time to time. 

I realized, life is too short and time flies so fast. Why waste it? Make the most out of it. 

I read this book suggested by Sherlene and Ben. "Rich Dad Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki. For me, this is worth reading.  The book is all about going out of the rat race and taking risks. It gave me two choices. Play it safe or play it smart.

Being good in something makes you feel accomplished, contented and happy. I am not going to start my pursuit because I just want everybody to see what I have become, but I want to prove myself that I can do anything to reach my goals and dreams in God's time.

Expect stories of my journey, it may be ups and downs, tips and a lot more.. your comments, ideas and suggestions of stories and topics will be most appreciated.

Join me, as I start my journey to Pursuit of Something Great.. 

“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.”
