Question: Have You Ever Thought About Giving Up? What Don't You Like About Travel?
Answer: (Click here if you can't see the video.)
We love our life, and we love to travel, but have we ever thought of 'giving up'?
Not everything about travel is sunshine and sandy beaches. There's also sunburns, sand in your shorts, and sickness.
But the same thing can be said about life in general. It's not all a 'bed of roses'.
So while at times the idea of 'giving up' has crossed my mind (Rachel), ultimately we realize that it's as ludicrous as giving up on life just because the water heater goes out, or there's a traffic jam in your commute.
In the end, the 'Exchange Rate' is worth it, at least for us.
Here are some things to consider:
- Travel - or pursuing your dream - just like life, has obstacles and challenges
- Learning to overcome them by developing greater capacities is the goal
- Remember the 'Illusion of Control' - in reality, we can't control life, only how we respond to it
