Alan Watts lived in San Francisco (our hometown!) and was a professor at UC Berkley. He’s a fantastic writer and philosopher, but this is quite possibly my favorite excerpt from his many lectures. Perhaps it’s because the subject he speaks of hits home with me and motivates me to keep doing what we’re doing here in Nicaragua. If money was no object I would still be doing exactly what I’m doing right now. Traveling the world, starting our own business and helping others around the world along the way.
I wonder how many other young people he inspired at Berkley, online and through his writings to go after their dreams and do exactly what they desired. It’s the exact same message we’re trying to spread through our story and Life Out of the Box. Think beyond the money. Think beyond the standard safe box and go after what you want.
Take 3 minutes of your day to watch this. It will inspire you and I promise you won’t regret it. It’ll get you really thinking deep about yourself and your life on this lovely Saturday. Try to answer this simple question: What do I desire?
Happy Saturday friends!
