“Life is a series of near misses. But a lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It’s seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future.”

Howard Schultz

American entrepreneur, Chairman of Starbucks.

In other words, how many times do we miss some incredible opportunities in life because we are so focused on ourselves? Take responsibility for what you want , what you need, what you dream about. Create your own opportunities by getting out of your comfort zone; meeting new people, going to new places, learning new skills and exploring unfamiliar territories.

When was the last time you took a risk?

When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?

Beware complexifiers & complicators. Truly, “smart people” …simplify things.

What you are about to read applies to most of us¸

Living isn’t complicated, feeding yourself  isn’t complicated, finding a roof over your head isn’t complicated, learning new skills isn’t complicated, making new friends isn’t complicated, It’s actually quite easy.

If what I’m writing is valid, Why do so many of us have the tendency to complicate very simple puzzle and transform them into very difficult problems to solve? Are we some kind of maso-psycho-slow-destructive-kamikaze unto ourselves?

When you meet with someone who tells you that something is very complicated,  First BEWARE, then RELAX because it’s probably not.
