Today my dear fellow readers and readerettes, I will tell you about an American guy called Chris who’s a professional writer and traveler. He does both fulltime and they coincide happily. His goal is to have visited ALL countries on this planet by his 35th birthday in 2012. He’s visited 111 out of 197 so far. Check out his site ‘Art of Non-conformity’ at www.chrisguillebeau.com/3x5/ I have found it inspirational.
Chris has written 2 Manifestos (love those) which you see listed on his site, if confused click here for the 279 DAYS TO OVERNIGHT SUCCESS: www.chrisguillebeau.com/3x5/overnight-success/ which is an inspiring read about goal setting and reaching it. Click here for his ‘a Brief guide to World Domination’: www.chrisguillebeau.com/3x5/a-brief-guide-to-world-domination/ which relates about your choice to be Remarkable and make a big change.
Basically the whole concept for me is about standing for what you believe in and to endorse it actively. Do what you love and don’t make excuses for it. It’s the path of rejecting convention.
“If you want it badly enough, and are willing to make some changes in your life to cause it to happen, you too can take over the world… or do anything else you really want to do. Yes, you really can have it all. The only things you’ll need to give up are assumptions, expectations, and the comfort zone that holds you back from greatness.”
