I was walking along Khao San Road a couple of months ago and I see the usual crowd of drunk tourists, local vendors, shoppers, a few long term travellers, young Thai students and one local guy that struck me the most.
This guy laid out a piece of cardboard that had a brief introduction about him and started playing with what seemed to me as a football. It seemed to me that he badly wants to go to Europe to showcase his talent. Being a Southeast Asian as well, it seems to me that football is not as huge here in comparison to what they have Europe and I was thinking that maybe he wanted to get a shot to play with the world-famous teams there.
I honestly don’t know what his chances would be in this kind of strategy but I have to say that I really admire his courage to go out there and show the world what he can do.
It inspired me a lot and made me ask myself, “How far would I go to achieve my dream?”
Initially my dream is just to travel the world. But after being on the road for almost eight months now, it transitioned to a bigger dream. I want to be able to travel the world on my own pace and earn more at the same time so I could continue to provide financial support to my family.
The strategy now is to be able to think and execute short, mid and long term plans. Alignment is the key to make the process shorter and more efficient for me. I don’t know what the future holds but I’m going to give my best shot today!
