Are You Already Dead?
Recently we’ve heard a sentence that most people die at the age of 25. And their bodies die 50-60 years later. Are you already dead?
When we look at the world around us, we cannot agree more. Children are the most curious creatures in the world. They keep asking questions, they are never angry, they love to learn new things and have fun. They are almost always happy.
Teenagers are full of energy, dreams, and vitality. They know they can do anything and they have a strong faith that their future life will be awesome. They can’t wait to grow up and become independent.
And then it happens. They are very excited, they do stupid and immature things and they have a lot of fun too. For most of them, it’s the time when they meet someone they want to spend a life with. So they get married, they buy a house (or flat), they find a decent job and they are having children. And then they die before they even spot the first grey hair on their heads.
Do You Live or Only Exist?
Of course, they don’t literally die- everything is ok with their bodies. But their souls are empty. They stopped dreaming, they stopped having fun, they stopped enjoying life. They are focused on the work (that is usually boring), on kids and the house. They marriage is getting more boring every year. They have lost their passion, their energy, and the will to change the world.
They stopped following their hearts. Their life is different than they imagined when they were young. They promised themselves that they would never ever be like their parents. And the funny part is that they are exactly the same.
They watch TV shows, read newspapers and articles on the Internet. They look at the lives of celebrities and wish to be like them. But none of them actually DO something to become a celebrity.
I am writing this post on the boat. We have a private, luxurious 2 days cruise on the Andaman Sea in Thailand. We spent the last few weeks in the most luxurious places in a country. Next week we are going to Malaysia and in 2 weeks we’ll be in China. We work online, we are happy in our relationship and we follow our hearts.
Every time we experience amazing things like this cruise we ask ourselves a question: why everybody doesn’t live like us? What is the reason that people don’t make their dreams come true? Why do they let their lives be so boring?
Why they don’t do anything to make this word better? To be happier every day?
3 years ago we decided to travel the world in a luxury and make a lot of money. We were poor, insecure but we worked hard to achieve our goal. We had no clue if we will ever be able to succeed. We knew though that the rules of the world are simple. If you work very hard and do everything to fulfill your dream, it will finally come true. It may take you a day, a week, a month, a year or even a decade to make your dreams come true. But if you keep trying no matter what, you will eventually succeed.
We don’t know ANY person in the world who would have just failures for the entire life. We know the people who succeed though. And they all say that the clue to success (no matter what you do) is to work hard and get up every time you get hit.
We are 24 and 25 years old. We haven’t died yet. Have you?
We feel more alive than ever. We are extremely proud of achieving what we wanted. And it’s only the beginning of our journey. We want to see every country on this planet, we want to be very rich, we want to the most influential bloggers in the world, we want to have kids and show them the beauty of Earth. And most importantly- we want to help other people. We don’t need money to buy ourselves fancy clothes or cars. We need them to travel and to share. We want to help people experiencing what we do. Seeing amazing things all over the world. Supporting them in making their dreams come true.
Of course, we are dreamers but we truly believe that every person deserves to be happy. A single human can change the world if only he is doing what he loves. Every person is unique and has its own path to go. You only live once, so be adventurous!
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
So what is your talent? What are you good at? What is your biggest dream? And what do you do to make it come true? Are you already dead?
