The most important lessons learned 2015

 

most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss



"Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit." - Les Brown


Taking a different path to everyone else around you sure isn't easy. While it may appear that all we do is fun and games, we have to work very hard to make this and our other blog travellingweasels.com work and it took a lot of courage to say no to the corporate life and travel the world via house sitting, especially at such a young age. I'm sure many people thought we were crazy and people still ask us what we want to do 'afterwards' and what 'career we are interested in pursuing.' These people will never understand that our goal is to build a life we don't need a vacation from, and to be paid to be ourselves and to travel the world.
