Chase Your Dreams

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Laozi

Dreams dare to exist before the path to their attainment is made clear.

Fear of failure is a mental obstacle. Those who overcome fear achieve success.

Fear of failure is overcome by humility, the laying down of pride. There is no need to succeed on the first attempt. Not even on the final attempt.

The journey is the reward. Take this journey without expectations.

Empty the mind of expectations so it can experience discoveries.

Like a child, when every encounter is new, there is no fear. This is why children learn the most and adults stick to what they know. In these young minds there is no expectation of failure; there is no fear of it. The expectations of the old are limitations; clinging to mildly successful methodologies as they feel safer than the unknown.

Be bold, chase your dreams. When failure comes, let it excite your mind with a fascination on how to improve your next attempt.

Discovery is the fuel of innovation. It is the token reward to continue.

There is no greater joy than to learn something new.

There is no greater regret than to not have tried.

Mistakes are guidance markers for the next attempt. Do not fear them.

Celebrating the successes of legends while forgetting their failures misleads young dreamers to believe that the pathway to success is without struggle.

Anything worth achieving was attained at great sacrifice. This is its value.

If it were too easy it would not be precious, it would not be desirable.

Chase your dreams and you will find your treasures. What is dreamed about is treasured.

Those who dream of far away places, treasure the journey. For what is near is not as desirable.

Those who dream of riches, treasure what is difficult to obtain. For what they have is not as desirable.

Those who dream of achievement, treasure struggle. For what they have achieved was too easy.

Some dreams are unobtainable. Such as mirages and the end of the rainbow. These dreams are best avoided.

Goals that are not clearly defined are best avoided.

Traveling the World in a Tiny Home

Seven years ago an idea popped into my head: what if I could work from a laptop and travel the United States in an RV? At the time I didn’t know if that was a crazy original idea or not, but I thought it was really cool.

I imagined buying an RV, traveling all over the United States, installing cameras all over it and creating a YouTube series to generate income for myself. I thought it might be a hard dream to achieve, but apparently, there are a lot of people doing this all around the world!

I guess I’m not the only one who thought this was a cool idea. I’ve selected some YouTube videos to showcase what’s possible.

My original idea was to travel the United States for a year or two. Not forever, but just to experience a once in a lifetime adventure. I don’t know if I could get used to a tiny space like this or not. I guess the idea is to spend more time outside exploring.

The double-decker bus RV is my favorite so far. I like how spacious it is. The stairs are what make it feel bigger. It’s got two floors.

The undercover camper van is a pretty neat idea. If I were going to try this right now, I’d probably go with something small like this. I’d imagine it’s not as expensive as the larger buses. Plus it could be parked almost anywhere and none would be the wiser. I’d see it as a get-away vehicle. Not sure if I’d live in this exclusively. I like my space.

What do you think of traveling the world in an RV home?
