Every day I had the same story to tell to the world: traffic, stress, crazy work in one of the largest consulting firms of the world, reports, meetings, and a lot of pressure. This lifestyle can ensure you money or social status, but it is not sustainable in itself. We need more. And I say: much more.
But it is very difficult to get out of the comfort zone: the human being loves inertia. The body will follow the current of the river naturally. Why should I swim against the movement of the river? This requires a much greater effort of willpower, so people get carried away without thinking, in this order: high school, college, work, career advancement, higher salary, more spending, more spending, much more spending… When we stop to think, perceive that our cost of living has increased so that we can not leave working. It is the current debt bondage based on excessive consumerism. How many people say, “If I could, I would quit my work”? Then I tell you how I did it.
After a period of stress, I decided to take a trip and it was the best thing I did. Traveling, you realize that the workaholic logic is not the only possible logic. We have many other ways of life, then just look to the side and see that happiness is not limited to consumption patterns. We pay high prices for mobile phones, but we forget to invest in moments and events.
And on the trip, breathing new winds, I decided fortunately. I quit my job to start a project together with two friends: we set up the Dubbi (www.dubbi.com.br), a collaborative platform trip, for people to solve your travel doubts and then travel more. It has been a challenge, with great victories. I have worked a lot, but it is something I love. Then I realized: this is what moves me. And the happiest thing is to do something you love, because the work means fun in this case. But, of course, you will have to give up certain things, like that expensive watch. For me, it is a good deal.
Today my goal is that, increasingly, people use the Dubbi to plan your trips, enjoying life more and better. This is possible! And my first challenge is to break the inertia of people, showing that it is possible to travel far without being a millionaire. Because the real millionaire is one who wake up every day happy with your life – after all, this is priceless.[
