As I pointed out in my About-Page, I quit my job in market communications to go travelling Southeast Asia. Although it was a dream which I had for a long time and the situation to take this step was objectively right, I still had a hard time deciding to do it. Looking back at it, coming from a country where status and especially security is a major trait of society, this “struggle” is probably a normal phenomenon.Luckily, I am now very happy with my decision and I am sure, that if I had decided otherwise, I would have badly regretted it at one point in my life. In the end, nothing is worse than missed chances.
If you are in a similar situation, I’d like to give you some inspirational quotes which might be of help. They sure were for me. Check it out …
The adrenalin and stress of an adventure are better than a thousand peaceful days!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now!
A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.
The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.
And last but not least, the motto quote of this blog from one of my favorite authors:
If you are brave to say “good bye”, life will reward you with a new “hello”.
I’d be happy if some of you find inspiration in these. Do you have any inspirational quotes you want to share? Feel free to add them in the comments below.
