When I first read the Holstee Manifesto it was during a time of significant personal change. I hadn’t lost my job, fallen ill, or endured any specific thing that prompted the change. For me, it was just deciding that “someday” was never going to come unless I made it happen. “If you don’t like something, change it.” It was difficult to explain to people the need to make big changes in my life. The Holstee Manifesto, however, perfectly articulates all of the thoughts that prompted my action and outlines the way I want to live my life. “Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.” So my wife and I got started on our plans to get rid of everything we own (aside from our two travel bags) and head out for indefinite foreign travel. We’ve been at it for a few months now, and the more we travel and meet people, and discuss our personal goals and values, the Holstee Manifesto pops up just at the right time to provide inspiration and remind us why we’re doing what we’re doing. “Live your dream and share your passion.” We also started a blog (pathhacker.com) to showcase people that have made personal change to live the life they want to live in an effort to inspire others to do the same. Thanks team Holstee for inspiring me and millions others!
