Ask The Readers: What Is Your Adventure Of A Lifetime?
Huge adventure dreams are hard to share at first, right?
- Your parents might be disappointed.
- Your Nana could drop dead from shock.
- Your buddies might think you have turned into a selfish, insane narcissist.
- Your girlfriend might dump you.
Are you scared of sharing the Adventure of Your Lifetime with your closest friends and family?
Yo, if so… You aren’t alone.
I constantly get asked questions from Posse members about how to tell people about their dreams.
This isn’t an easy question AND there is no right way to do it (although usually I say, “Wait until you have a plan, be confident, be honest, and don’t look for approval”).
You see… most people are “Normal People.”
Most of our parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, co-workers, classmates, and even our lovers try to fit in, avoid change, have a stable life, and do normal things.
“I’m just like everyone else… PLEASE like me!”
Normal People have no idea how to process huge adventures.
Normal People will warn you about all the dangers. “Benjamin, if you try hitchhiking around the USA, you are going to get robbed, raped, and diced into tiny Lego-shaped pieces. All it takes is ONE PSYCHO…!!!!!!!!”
Normal People will assume you went crazy (one of the worst sins in the Normal World.) Or they will dismiss you as young, idealistic, and naive. “You don’t understand how the world REALLY works…”
Normal people don’t think you can make your dreams a reality… even though they may have even told you, “You can do anything you put your mind too” or “The sky’s the limit” or “Just follow your dreams.” BUT MAKE SURE YOU back to your Economics 101 class to learn the boring and irrelevant information that would take you 0.29 seconds to Google. Or go back to your computer job and keep typing those keys… say your prayers the economy stays strong, more people buy more stuff, and you don’t get downsized.
You are supposed to choke your dreams down inside, just like Normal People do… right?
Watch what some people have to say about their Adventure Of A Lifetime:
Normal people never make their dreams happen.
AND they will try to make sure your dreams don’t happen either. Not because they are evil, but because they don’t want to face a very harsh reality…
The life they are leading could have been so much richer.
They could have experienced more adventure than a Hollywood blockbuster. Their stories could be more interesting, than the latest Harry Potter novel. They could feel alive in the way Jesus, Buddha, and Eckhart Tolle describe.
Normal people never want to face this reality.
But, hey… I know I can be blunt sometimes to make my point… make no mistake, I love Normal People. I’ve met thousands of Normal People and they all hold a place in my heart.
- I just never take advice from Normal People.
- I never share my dreams with Normal People and hope for their validation, encouragement, or inspiration.
- I never base the viable-ness of my dreams on how Normal People judge them.
I don’t care what Normal People think of me.
If you have the courage to go on the Adventure of your Lifetime…
- Don’t expect support from Normal People.
- Don’t expect your Mom to get it.
- Don’t expect your boyfriend to pack your backpack and kiss your cheek.
- Don’t expect anyone to approve of you.
If you have courage to take action on your dreams… you will be alone. You will know something that 99% of people will never know. You will know more than your parents, you will know more than your Papa, and you wil know more than your crew of friends.
You will be a unique, powerful, and badass force of nature.
You will be a leader of our generation.
So… look into the soul of Normal People, see their beauty, hug them, kiss them, and love the fuck out of them. But never base your reality on what they think. Take their discouragement with a smile… AND go live your dreams anyways. Not only for you, but for the sake of Normal People too.
Give them a gift that they might not get from anyone else.
Show them our dreams are an invitation to be our True Self.
Your travel dreams are a call for you to start the journey towards your Highest Self. Your Adventure of a Lifetime is an invitation from God to unleash your full potential on everyone that is living now and everyone that will ever live.
You don’t have to go. You can reject the call. You can ignore the pull. You can try to forget that alive feeling in your belly.
You can be Normal too.
But if you do choose to embark on the Adventure Of Your Lifetime… then one way to start is to share it with a supportive person, group, or Posse.
Here at Adventure Sauce… you can share your adventures, get encouragement, inspirational advice, and practical information to make your adventure dream a reality.
You can’t find this shit anywhere else.
So… I invite you to start your Adventure Of A Lifetime right now with us.
Share your dreams of adventure in the comments below.
There are no rules. The definition of adventure is up to you.
What is your Adventure of a Lifetime?
I’ll go first.
My Adventure Of A Lifetime: I will travel around the world. I will visit the places that have the most impact on the culture of our world right now. I will go where the action is. I will talk to gurus, leaders, and artists. I will learn as much as possible about the people of our world.
I will create videos that will inspire a generation of Thoughtful People to create masterpieces, find their definition, set up freedom businesses, build their own Posse, and live a life they never regret.
Plus… I want my grandchildren to shit themselves, when they see what their Papa did. :)
