Are You Ready To Be Challenged

by Adrienne Smith on March 11, 2012

Are You Ready To Be ChallengedIn my first post of this year I shared some of the things I would be doing this year to step up my game.  I know that with the new year upon us we all strive to do better and be better right!  So how’s that working for ya?  Are you moving in the right direction?  Are you taking the necessary steps to get you to where you want to be?

Was that a yes or a no!

For me, I continue to learn as I go and I’ve been very blessed to have met some wonderful people while on this journey.  I’m by no means where I want to be in my business which is why I’m ready to be challenged.

Bless You Jamella

I visited Jamella Smith Biegel’s blog on the 1st and she wrote about a challenge she had signed up for. It sounded really interesting but I’ll be honest with you.  March 1st through the 3rd I was kind of out of it.  I had just received some devastating news about my best friend’s husband so I was a crying sobbing mess.  I couldn’t concentrate, I was emotionally drained and I could hardly function.

The challenge sounded really interesting but that was the last thing I could think about at that time.  I filed it away to look at later.  Sunday was my first good day and I had so much catching up to do by then.  Thank goodness she emailed me on Monday to see if I was interested because it closed at midnight that night.  I quickly put some time aside, headed over to the website and listened to the video.

My Momma didn’t raise no fool!  I know a good thing when I see it and thank goodness she sent me that email to remind me.  I immediately joined, printed out their agreement, signed it and emailed it to Jordan and then shot my video message they asked us to provide.  We had our first webinar Thursday night.

What Are You Talking About Girl

So I guess I should explain what the heck I’m talking about right and why I believe it’s so important now.

Adam Chandler and Jordan Shultz are having a “100 day biz challenge”.  This challenge is for anyone who is serious about taking their business to the next level.  It’s about quitting with the excuses and just get to work darn it.

  • Are you seeing the results you want?
  • Are you where you want in your business?
  • Is your team growing like leaps and bounds?
  • Are you making lots of sales on affiliate products?
  • Are you promoting your content and getting it noticed?
  • Do you need accountability?
  • Do you need direction?

Adam and Jordan decided to open the doors back up to their “100 day biz challenge” but only until Wednesday night, the 14th, at midnight.  I was SO thrilled when they made that announcement because I hated that I signed up at the very last minute and couldn’t share this fabulous opportunity with you guys.

What It Entails

Now don’t be surprised because there are a few rules.  What I love about this is it’s actually FREE to the public.

In the past they have charged $500 for this coaching because they are giving you instructions on what you should be doing and a plan of action.  Of course it’s up to you to follow through but if you don’t have a coach or mentor to direct you in your business then this is definitely your blessing in disguise.

The only stipulation is that you have to be a member of MLSP because they are sharing with us how to drive traffic to this generic marketing system but from these leads come new team members and the explosion we all need to catapult our business to new levels.

Now you can take a test drive with MLSP for 14 days for only $10.  After that it’s a little under $50 a month.  Here is why this can benefit you.

If people don’t want to join your primary business you can direct them to this system so they can learn how to market themselves in order to grow their business.  It’s strictly generic and you can learn any way you want to market online right in the members area.

If you are serious about building your business and you don’t have the training or the tools in order to get you to where you need then this is the best investment you’ll ever make.  Once you sign up with MLSP then you can join this challenge and we can all learn how these guys exploded their business and are at the top of the leader boards in their primary opportunity as well as MLSP.

Are You In

My motto is if you want your business to be at a certain place then find someone who is already there and do what they do.  How would you like to not only follow along with two top income earners and learn the ropes but also have an entire group there for support as well!

They are having a webinar tonight that you won’t want to miss.  They’ll explain all about it so don’t miss out.  You can access both by clicking the link below.  I sure hope this sounds as enticing to you as it did me.

If you aren’t ready to make that commitment to take your business to the next level then you will not hurt my feelings at all.

Click on 100 Day Biz Challenge

2012 is my year guys and I would love for you to come along for the ride.  If not then you most definitely can continue learning from me here on my blog.  You know I’ll never turn anyone away.  I just know that a lot of you have so much potential but you just need that direction that you aren’t currently getting.

Think about it but don’t be like me and wait until the last minute again because you’ll still have the opportunity to share this with your list and friends so that they can join you as well.

Your Thoughts

I know a lot of you are very happy with where you are so I know this isn’t for you but I was just so excited when they opened it back up.  Maybe you know a few people who would like to get in still so you can point them over here to me.  Oh yeah, I’m not afraid to ask…  That my friends I have learned the hard way.

So let me have it, is this something you can see yourself committing to for the next 100 days?  Do you need that direction?  Do you need that help?  Do you need that support?

Depending on what we learn will depend on what I share in future posts.  I mean if you aren’t with MLSP then whatever I share might not benefit you but if I see some areas that I believe will then I’m sure you’ll see a future post soon.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and you guys have a fabulous week okay!  Look forward to your comments as always.

This sounds like an excellent opportunity to take our game to the next level. Blitz like this always create serious result when you do the work. I will be joining you Adrienne! And I look forward to being with you are the top!

March 12, 2012 at 7:54 AM

Hey thanks Terry, I believe it most certainly is. If we need to step up our game and have some accountability as well as learn from those already at the top, such as yourself, these types of challenges can really bring you to the next level.

Happy to hear you’ll be coming along as well. I’m looking forward to being at the top with you my friend! :-)

Enjoy your week.

Ahhh…I’ve been wondering what you’ve been up to Adrienne! Bravo and good luck. I really look forward to hearing more about this journey. Loved your intro video, and I have no doubt that you will have 100 days filled with success and progress.


4 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 7:56 AM

lol… Ah yes my dear friend, I’ve gone off and gotten myself into a 100 day challenge. Signed my life away girl.

It’s making me be more accountable for actually getting more content out there and not slouching off with just blog posts and an occasional video. I’m totally reworking my schedule for cranking out content so I hope to have a bunch of good stuff to report at our next meeting.

I miss chatting with you by the way! Hope things are going great for you. I’ll be by your place a little later.

Hi Adrienne,

Congratulations on jumping in before the dead line, good thing you got that email when you did 😉

It sounds like it’s going to be a blast and you’re going to learn loads Adrienne. How you fit everything in is still a wonder to me, I really do take my hat off to you 😎

I won’t be taking this challenge Adrienne, I still have unfinished projects to catch up on before I do anything else. I am making my way through them slowly though 😉

I know that you’ll be sharing some of it over here so I’ll be following along from here.

Best of luck with everything Adrienne,

Respect and Regards,

March 12, 2012 at 7:59 AM

Hey Barry,

Oh man, I’m really thrilled Jamella reminded me or I would have lost out. Well maybe not since they reopened the doors but this is exactly what I need Barry.

I’ll be reworking my schedule, that’s for sure. Got a LOT more on my plate now so I hope this doesn’t hurt me with my blog commenting efforts. I’m sure I’ll always find time to squeeze that in. :-)

I know you have a lot on your plate already Barry. I hope everything is coming along smoothly for you. You’ve got one challenge taking place already so you are doing one so to speak.

I’ll definitely share what I can so stay tuned.

Thanks Barry and have a great week.

Hi Adrienne,
MLSP is a rock solid program they have awesome training. I hung there for a bit, I had make some choices and decide were to get lean. I’d recommend it to anyone for the training alone. So to hear about your friend’s misfortunes and hope things get better.
Thanks for another great post.


8 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Hi Dave,

Thank you for sharing that, they do have excellent training and the community is awesome. This challenge is going to get some people out of their comfort zones and I think more people need some of that since this year is quite new.

I can understand the cutting back on some things so I hope you’re where you want to be Dave. I have no doubt that things are going well for you so I appreciate the good wishes.

Have a wonderful week.

Hi Adrienne,

Happy Monday :) This seems so very interesting. I would be interested, but I have to read this through again when I get home and see if I would be physically able to assist to the webinars. There are going to be webinars, am I right?

Either way, yes, I think that it’s a great opportunity to advance in our internet business.

Thanks for this, Adrienne. I’m glad you feel better and have a great day!


10 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Hi Sylviane and happy Monday to you as well!

Yes, they are every Thursday night 8:00 CST and then you join an accountability group and get the support there as well as our private Facebook group. I know that would put you at about 3:00 in the morning when we have our webinars and you have to attend them. They want to make sure you’re committed. So, that’s totally up to you.

It is a great opportunity to forge ahead and also meet new people that can perhaps provide great insights to some areas we may need more assistance with. I’m excited about this.

My pleasure and thank you for that. I hope to have a really wonderful week. Hope you do the same.


11 Sylviane Nuccio
March 12, 2012 at 6:42 PM

Thanks Adrienne,

I just realized that you may not know that I am in North Carolina. So 8:00 PM CST would make 9:00 PM my time, So I can totally do this. I have to check it out and see… to make sure because my time being so tight, but I sure could take advantage of something like this :)


12 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 7:16 PM

You know, I think I remember you saying you were here in the states some time back but I guess knowing where you’re from I still haven’t connected the dots in my head. Dah!

I hope you made the webinar tonight, it was really great. If not, be sure to check out their site and listen to their video to see if this is something you’d like to participate in. I think it would be beneficial especially if you’d like some accountability and a plan of action that will get results. Just think where you’ll be 100 days from now! No place but up girl! :-)


13 Harleena Singh
March 12, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Congratulations Adrienne!

Another challenge! Wow! Only you can do it, and I know you WILL do wonders in it as well :)

I did see your introductory video just yesterday I think and was wondering what’s it about, and now I know!

100 days is surely a long time to take up something like this, though those who are really interested in taking their business to the next level. As for me, I still have no real business as you would call it :) But I do wish all those who participate all the very best for the 100 day biz challenge- am sure it’s going to be a great source of learning for everyone, as well as making new connections :)

Am glad that for the readers of this blog like me, we would be seeing much more of goodies here beside the blog posts and videos that you share. Looking forward to it Adrienne!

Thanks so much for introducing Jamella- would be checking out her blog as well and saying a quick ‘Hello’ :)

Wishing you all the very best in the challenge :)


14 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Thank you Harleena and I know this will help keep me on tract that’s for sure.

They said to do it short and sweet so no major introduction like I’ve done in the past. The lighting was also horrible since I tried it in a different room, experimented that is.

You are definitely right Harleena, anyone wanting to take their business to the next level should get in on something like this. So many people have broken through from what was holding them back because they needed more direction and assistance because they weren’t getting it previously. Of course you have to be committed because there is no slouching here. I’ve already made some great connections and we’ve just begun.

I’m sure Jamella will be more than happy to have you visit. She’s a sweetheart and I have feeling you two will get along perfectly.

Thank you for the best wishes Harleena and you have a wonderful week.

The great thing about a challenge like this is the community support. When the energy is high and lot of people are seeing success you can’t help it but to stay in the game just a little longer than if you were to do this by yourself.

I appreciate people who can put these together with the team (bigger family) in mind. And having you as a leader and role model in this challenge is perfect. I know you will be there for your groups.

Hey Ken,

I agree and we already have about five or six people we will be working closely with reporting our results twice a week. It helps to have people to run things by or ask questions or what kind of results are they seeing. This in itself is a great reason to participate.

Thank you Ken, I appreciate that. I’m not actually heading up the team since another lady stepped up to the plate but you can sure bet I’ll be putting me two cents in. :-) I’m really excited about this and ready to go.

Thank you so much for your support, it means a lot. Now, I hope you have a fabulous week! :-)

Dear Adrienne,

Good to see you’re more motivated and energized than ever! I think this is an excellent way for both people who are new to entrepreneurship as well as seasoned entrepreneurs.

Always find a way to challenge yourselves. Never let yourselves stay stagnant. I can’t wait to hear the good news and results from the 100 day business challenge. Make it real everyone! 😀



18 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 10:57 AM

Hi Daniel,

Ah yes my friend, more than ever. This is a new year and a new direction for me so I’m definitely motivated. I’m eager to get this challenge underway with everyone else who is participating as well and see how they are all coming along. I think it’s inspiring actually.

There will definitely be results coming down the road. This challenge will run into June so we have nothing but time right!

Thanks for your comment and hope you enjoy your week.

Rock ‘n roll; if you are this fired up about it, then it must be a good thing. I’m sure there are people in your neighborhood who will be all over this and the 100-day challenge.

You know I’ll be hanging around so I will be waiting to hear your success stories; best of luck to you on your way to fame and fortune.


20 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 11:36 AM

Thank you Bill and I do hope we get more people involved. I think it can benefit anyone who is online really trying to break through some barriers you know!

I’ll definitely be reporting in as time goes by. It is an enter 100 days so we’ve got quite a ways to go.

Enjoy your week Bill and thanks for stopping by!


21 Sonia
March 12, 2012 at 2:00 PM

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity Adrienne. I will check it out and see what I can do to take part in this too! Sorry about your friend, going through some stuff myself, but I think maybe it’s what I need to get out of this funk. Thanks as always for letting us know about some really positive opportunities to help grow our business.


22 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 2:46 PM

Hi Sonia,

I think that this could really benefit anyone Sonia. I hope you’ll come along for the ride and I have no doubt you’ll get some benefit from it.

Yeah, it’s been really rough girl. I talked to my girlfriend today and he’s doing pretty good right now. They have someone coming in twice a week while she heads to the office. Just rough on everyone but I needed those three days to myself I guess to just let it all out.

I’m sorry you are dealing with some stuff right now as well. I sympathize with you and if you ever need to talk, I’m here. I know you have support and your wonderful honey but just know I’m here for you.

You are most welcome and you enjoy your week okay! Chin up!


23 Sheila Atwood March 12, 2012 at 1:31 PM


Good for you! I do love a challenge, especially one that keeps me on target. A stiff deadline is one of my favorites. f

But I do like the idea of getting help from someone standing on the outside looking in. Often I do not see a way that could work better and faster.

Hope it goes well! One hundred days is really a commitment.



24 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 2:35 PM

Hi Shelia,

I actually haven’t done many challenges at all Sheila. I did Barry Well’s video challenge last year and I’m doing that again right now. That will end on the 29th of this month. It’s only one video a week for a month but I’ll end up having five.

I still have some goals to reach in my business and I felt this would really benefit me in not only keeping me on target but learning what others are doing and how they’ve been able to take their business from little to nothing to massive results. The team effort and accountability is good for me. I’m pretty organized with my time anyway but I’m also open to suggestions of what I can be doing better.

Thank you Sheila and you are right, 100 days is a true commitment.

Hope you are doing well and have a wonderful week.


25 Cat Alexandra
March 12, 2012 at 3:34 PM

Hi Adrienne,

I’m so excited to know you’re going to be doing the challenge!

I made the decision over the weekend that I was going to do it too. I have been on Jordan’s list awhile (he doesn’t live so far from me actually) and had been mulling this one over for a bit. It’s actually one of the reasons why I’ve been looking for the outsourcing help. I just know that if some of my more “tedious” tasks weren’t taking up any of my time that I’d have enough hands to dig into this…so I decided to also take the plunge with it!

So cool that I’ll be in good company! :)

Let’s rock this!


26 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 4:22 PM

Hey Cat,

Thanks fabulous news Cat, I’m so thrilled to hear that. I have no doubt that you are in exceptional hands being on Jordan’s list.

I know what you mean about freeing up time… Since we just were introduced to what was excepted of us Thursday night and I really hate working all weekend, I guess you could say I haven’t done as well as I should this first week but I’ve gotten some work done. It’s going to be worth it though and get me on a better schedule with just productive work you know!

So glad you’ll be joining us and we can stay in touch about how it’s going with you as well.

Let’s rock this for sure!


27 Annie Andre
March 12, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Sounds like the perfect challenge for you. I won’t be joining in. I’m focusing on guest posting for the next 3 months but i’m going to tell all my friends and spread the word like wild fire to come check this out…

Loved the video, but what about the dancing?


28 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 4:15 PM

Hey Annie,

I think so too, just what I needed about now.

Ah, guest posting for the next 3 months. Does that include that video you’re going to do for me? Do I have to be the last one in line? :-) Don’t forget about me now. I know you’ll do fabulous.

Thanks for spreading the word. I think this can benefit a lot of people. If they are up for it that is.

I thought about that but they said short and sweet so that’s what they got. Hey, I’m working up to it okay! 😉

March 12, 2012 at 5:06 PM

Hi, Adrienne,

Wonderful to see that you are charging to the top!

Learning and mingling with those people who have the results that we want is a great way to get into the insider secrets. However, for many of us, the knowledge is there… what it takes is the actual ACTION part. For this reason, I am impressed with MLSP’s initiative to extend the support to members. For FREE too! The member support is getting better and better!

I am truly excited you and other friends taking on this wise step!

I am doing a lot of offline prospecting as the team is expending well in Sydney!
Missing the company of you guys and gays….

Viola Tam


32 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 7:07 PM

Hi Viola,

Thank you so much, I’m very excited about this.

You are right, having the expertise of the people who are already at the top and then sharing what we are doing in our group setting will help tremendously. I’m already pretty good and getting things done but obviously I need to step up my game in certain areas which I believe this team setting will be extremely helpful in that respect.

MLSP has come a long way since I was first introduced to them several years ago. I’m much more impressed with their training now and you can actually reach out to other people who are in this as well for assistance if you need it. That’s why I love these types of communities.

Congratulations on things happening for you offline Viola. I’m doing some of that myself in the afternoons so I think a combination is a good thing. I have no doubt you’ll do what it takes so the best of luck to you.

I really appreciate your comment and ongoing support. It’s greatly appreciated and I always enjoy hearing from you.

Have a fabulous week Viola and thanks again.


33 Linda March 12, 2012 at 7:35 PM

Bummer it is only for MSLP – I could really use it for other businesses…lol.

I think it is great that they opened it up again for those that can afford it and want to work with this program.

I also think it was awfully nice of you to share it with your readers as I am sure you sparked some more interest that you wouldn’t have received previously.

I wish you the best of luck with it, Adrienne!


34 Adrienne Smith
March 12, 2012 at 8:11 PM

It’s going to be an awesome challenge Linda. I’ve already printed out my sheet and know exactly what I have to do each week in order to get the results. Then with your accountability partners we can each share what works best for us and then of course give each other tips along the way. It’s going to be awesome. Wish you could have joined us.

I hate for anyone to lose out on a good thing. As we all know, it may or may not be for everyone but I don’t want someone to come back and say why didn’t you tell me. I think actually if anyone is still struggling with their business, this is their answer.

Thank you so much Linda and as it goes along and if I have some cool things to share, I most definitely will.

Have a great week.


35 Latha March 12, 2012 at 10:14 PM

Nice challenge. I am not a memeber of mlmleadsystem.. sounds interesting. Is it only for MLM business?


36 Adrienne Smith
March 13, 2012 at 8:00 AM

I think so Latha and yes, you have to be a member of MLSP. Only because they will be teaching us how to drive traffic to that system. It’s geared mainly toward network marketers but anyone can learn how to generate leads through what they share.


37 Jens P. Berget
March 13, 2012 at 2:37 AM

Hi Adrienne,

I’m ready to be challenged, but not right now :)

I’ll have to finish up my work at the University first, and then I’ll be more focused on my own business and do whatever it takes to be successful. I have several new clients, and I’m so happy that I made this decision. But, I’ll be ready for your challenge… soon :)


38 Adrienne Smith
March 13, 2012 at 8:04 AM

Hi Jens,

You definitely have your hands full. When is your last day at the University? I bet they are sad to see you go.

You have several new clients already? Wow Jens, that’s impressive. You are a go getter and I have no doubt you’ll do just fine. I’m so excited for you. I think you’re definitely going to be challenged my friend.


39 Jens P. Berget
March 13, 2012 at 1:29 PM

My last day is probably 29 March, and I’ll be leaving for Denmark and Legoland the day after… so it’s a great start for my new company :)

I’m very satisfied with how things are going so far, but it seems that most of my new clients are for SEO and some for marketing strategies. I didn’t think that I would be doing SEO, but I guess that’s what I’ll be focusing on during the first days of my new business :)


40 Adrienne Smith
March 14, 2012 at 9:48 AM

Wow, less than a month now. I’m just so excited for you Jens and I know this is a fabulous start for you. Are you leaving for business or pleasure before you start getting really busy?

Well I have no doubt you’ll be able to do wonderful things for them with SEO. There are so many bloggers that are teaching this strategy so I have no doubt you’ve learned quite a bit from them and will do very well. :-)


41 Jens P. Berget
March 14, 2012 at 4:36 PM

I’ll be on vacation for one week after I’ve quit my job at the University. My family and I will be in Denmark and at Legoland :)


42 Adrienne Smith
March 14, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Well that’s a great way to celebrate Jens… I’m excited for you guys. Live it up and then come back and jump in. :-)


43 Jens P. Berget
March 14, 2012 at 5:35 PM

Thanks. I’ll be working every single day, even when I’m in Denmark. I love what I’m doing, and I’ll get things done while my family is sleeping :)


44 Adrienne Smith
March 14, 2012 at 5:41 PM

You are one busy person! But its okay; you are blogging regularly and well, that is a lot to be done given that you are so busy with your new business! :)

March 13, 2012 at 7:13 AM

Hi Adrienne,

First off, I’m sorry about your best friend’s husband. :(
But I’m glad to see your smiling face back here though.

Then I’d like to say Woo hoo! Good for you for taking on such a big challenge! It sounds nice and structured what with letting you know what you’re supposed to do each week. That’s very helpful.

100 days though? My last challenge was only 30 days and it kicked my butt. You go girl! :)



47 Adrienne Smith
March 13, 2012 at 8:10 AM

Hey Peggy,

Thank you so much, we continue to pray for a miracle. ♥

We are going by a point system and I’m wracking them up already Peggy so I’m excited. I just have to be sure and stay focused and on track so you are right, 100 days is a long time but I felt this was just what I needed to move me in the right direction. So, wish me luck girl!

Have a wonderful week Peggy and hope all is well with you too! :-)

March 13, 2012 at 9:08 AM

Hey Adrienne,
Great to hear that you’re taking the challenge initiated by Adam and Jordan. This is will only accelerate the results you expect to see in your business. Also is an excellent way to learn more and create new connections.
At this moment I’m already in the one created by Pat McKeon and the blogging contest so I’m going this way now.

Wish you success with it. Certainly we will see a lot of useful posts/videos on your blog in the weeks to come :) Thanks for sharing!

Be blessed Adrienne,


51 Adrienne Smith
March 13, 2012 at 9:20 AM

Hey Radu,

I couldn’t agree with you more Radu, this will definitely accelerate the results I am getting so this is really so exciting. Love the people I’ve connected with already too.

Well I have no doubt that the one Pat has created will keep you busy too. I wish you the best of luck with that one as well Radu.

Stay tuned, you just never know what I’ll be sharing! 😉

Have a fabulous week Radu!

Though I don’t run a business but yes, I see this as an excellent opportunity for people blogging for business. I love how the online world throws opportunities by the minute not only for growing one’s business but also for marketing yourself well.

Adrienne, you are definitely the engagement superstar to have spread around the word!

Hope you have a lovely day! :)

Hey Hajra,

Hope you’ll consider creating your own business some day Hajra and the online communities are excellent ways to teach and support each other. This is a great challenge and it’s off to a wonderful start. I’m so excited for everyone who is participating and I know that everyone will benefit from this.

Thank you Hajra, I really appreciate that! :-) You have a lovely day as well. Mine has gotten off to the best start.

Oh boy Adrienne, you made it under the wire. You successfully put your emotions aside and kept your business hat on. Congrats! This challenge looks like a great journey and I’ll be learning from you as you write.
It sounds like a really great opportunity, but unfortunately I have too many things on my plate now and have to stay focused. I must say, it is tempting!
You are one strong gal!

Hey Donna,

Oh girl, you have no idea. lol… :-)

I did commit and I’m in it for the long haul but that’s okay. I need to learn how to do more of the productive things that will take my business to the next level and I believe this challenge will be a big eye opener for me. Wish you could join us but I totally understand. You just keep plugging along at what you’ve got going and I’ll definitely be sharing some things that I learn along the way. You can guarantee that Donna.

Thank you for your kind words, that means a lot. You have a wonderful day young lady!

I read a quote yesterday that I absolutely LOVE that speaks directly to the act of responding to challenge . . .

“If it’s important to you, you will find a way. If it isn’t, you’ll find an excuse.”

This really cuts to the core of whether or not someone is maximizing their opportunities.

Fear and shame are the core culprits in keeping people thinking small and what’s great about a challenge given with support is that it helps us question our limiting beliefs. And it’s so important to always keep in mind that the name of the game is progress, not perfection.

I’m looking forward to seeing you continue to move forward in “Beast Mode” Momma Bear Adrienne! :)

I love that quote Lewis, it’s always sat really well with me so thanks for sharing that. :-)

You are so right. That’s one thing I’ve always told people either you want to do it or you don’t. Making excuses is really just your way of saying you don’t want to. No one said everything would always be easy but boy it sure feels great when you’ve accomplished something you didn’t know you could. I love that so this challenge is really helping me stay on tract you know.

Thanks for sharing and I appreciate your confidence in me Lewis. It means a LOT!

Hey Jamella,

I have your blog on my list to visit too. As you probably are aware (hint, hint), I’m VERY behind with my commenting at the moment but I’ll get caught up.

I have you to thank for this young lady and my first week has been fantastic. I’m just so thrilled with my progress so far although I’m sure it’s nothing compared to everyone else’s. I guess we’ll see tonight.

Thanks again and see you soon! :-)
