At the beginning of each Roadtrip Nation video, they say “Everywhere you turn people try to tell you who to be and what to do, but what about deciding for yourself? Roadtrip Nation is a movement that empowers people to find their own roads in life…”. The show focuses on 3 strangers who are brought together to drive around the country. On their trip they interview people that inspire them and ask them how they got to where they are.
Every few months I return to the show, which is free on their site. The interviews that they conduct are incredibly enlightening. It’s easy to feel sorry for yourself and think “maybe I can’t do it”. The people who are interviewed talk about pursuing their passions and what it means to follow your dreams.
“If you don’t follow your dreams, you’ll spend the rest of your life working for someone who did”. Currently I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m doing in my job but I know that as soon as I can, I’m going to follow my dreams. Every few months I get bummed out and see the future as this far away entity. Roadtrip Nation reminds me that it’s possible to be successful doing what you love.
If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out their latest season!
Each person follows their passion, or discovers their passion, as they embark
