The Urge for Adventure - September 2017

Hiker with Sun.jpg

Hey Guys,
Last month in the August issue, I passed on some great ideas for exploration, and reasons to get up off the couch, and that was beside the Solar Eclipse. Perhaps many who watched the eclipse were inspired to reflect and to become more of their awesome best.
September offers yet another variety of opportunities to increase your social activity or enhance your social skills to attract success. September is considered the Self-Improvement Month.  Engaging in activities this month might help you find something valuable about yourself. It is all the more reason for you to get off that couch and out that door, or at least to set a goal to hone any latent ability you might have tucked away.
