Feed your Mind # 2
Chris Guillebeau is one of the “celebrity” blogger I’ve been followed for years.
His ways of thinking and approach of life is very unique and unconventional, which makes him stand out from crowd easily, his perspectives do open my minds a lot and add wisdom to my mental library.
Reason why I resonate with him : not only because I love travel so enjoy very much about his travel stories, but also his value. In addition, show me an “introvert” can also live their dream life according to our wish.
Society tend to praise extrovert more and assume that successful / happy person must be extrovert / outgoing.
His book “$100 start up” and new one “Born for this – how to find the work you meant to do” do inspire people how to live a fulfilling life, no matter our age, race, limitation or obstacles etc.
We all have our dreams but there always an “excuse” to hold us back, e.g. don’t have enough money to start our business, Chris put successful stories he interviewed in the book “$100 start up”, then many of us hate our jobs and drag ourselves to workplace everyday, Chris wrote another book we have the choice to do what we love / what we meant to be.
The only limitation is “ourselves”.
I love and enjoy seeing people who make an impact while stay humble, generous to others.
I have difficulties to find mentor in real life, guess it’s because my “introvert” attribution and anxiety / shy that stem from abusive history.
Feel insecure if people get too close to me, but I am always hungry for knowledge and wisdom so found many people I admire to follow from the net.
How about you? do you have any mentors that inspire you? Please share and let me know so I can learn from them too.
