“Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.”

If you close your eyes and visualize your “perfect” life, would it be the one you’re living right now?

Are you:

  • Working the job or career you want?
  • Spending as much time with your family as you’d like?
  • Traveling and having more memorable experiences?
  • Living where you want in the world?
  • Working out and staying in shape?

Ultimately, if you’re dissatisfied in any area of your life and you want a place to get inspiration and motivation to make changes in those areas, you’ve come to the right place.

My name is Kris Bloedoorn and I’ve come to a place where I crave positive interaction like many people crave ice cream, pizza, potato chips or any other comfort food. I try to eliminate as much negativity in my life as possible. I don’t watch the news, political reports, reality shows, or anything else with a lot of drama. If it’s mainstream, I probably don’t watch. Yes, I know that’s considered strange. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a “different breed” which essentially means I don’t follow the crowd.

I focus a great deal of my time and energy on making my dreams come true. I love quotes and all thing inspirational. I also work hard to limit my circle of friends to people who have positive attitudes and are striving to accomplish something in their life.

So, why a blog?

One day, while I was out walking (which is where I do my best thinking) I started to imagine a community of positive, encouraging people. A place where anyone, regardless of race, religion, political views, or location in the world, could come together and push each other towards the things they’re aspiring to achieve, whatever those things may be.

As I searched online, I found a lot blogs from experts offering coaching, counseling, and classes on how to improve yourself and your life. While I don’t believe there is anything wrong with seeking professional help, it just wasn’t what I was looking for.

Geared Up For Greatness is intended to be a source of tips, quotes, self-development, and even some online challenges to help you create the life you want. My goal is to create a safe haven for people to share their dreams and receive encouragement and inspiration for seeing those dreams come to pass. Regardless of where you are in your journey (college student, parent, middle-aged, retired, or somewhere in between), if you’re bold enough to dream another dream there’s something here for you.
