Success journal is about the pursuit of our ideal lifestyles.  My hope is that this blog will inspire and motivate people to act. I read a quote somewhere once that said something to the effect of ‘Those who never failed never acted.’

This blog is about what is possible. The great thing is always knowing that someone before us has been where we have been, and someone has been where we are going. As long as we have our health and our wits we are free to try whatever we choose.

Just like riding a bicycle or anything requiring effort and skill, there is a process that requires practice and diligence. But, with those things comes success. Let us commit to live our dreams or to act until we cannot.
