Strangers Life Advice

Four months after I graduated college, I found myself without a job and debating rather I should continue applying for jobs and write endless cover letters that never got read and interviews that never happened, or to follow an unconventional path as a brand strategist aka marketing consultant.
I couldn’t spend any more time debating which path I should take, knowing that in two months I would be expected to make my first college loan payment.

Still not knowing which path to take, I decided for 31 days to take selfies with 31 strangers and ask them to give me one advice in the areas of relationship, life, work, and happiness.

I couldn’t believe what had happened next, read below to see the advice I was given.

Profession:Mail Carrier
I don’t even remember the last time I spoke with a mail carrier, I just happened to go outside of my house and got my mail and saw the mail lady and decided I wanted to get an advice from her. -Advice-
“Try to learn from everything,
You are here because of the decisions you made in the past so don’t regret them but learn from them”

I got to meet Patrick Sweeney! 
An ex-olympic level rower, entrepreneur and elite adventure racer. He holds the world record as the first person to mountain bike to Everest Base Camp at 18,000 feet. If you’re not scaring yourself at least once a month, you’re not living. He’s also here to teach other people how to do things that separate them from the rest of the pack and live the biggest life possible.

One of my favorite interactions!
I accidentally went over a curb on to the Main Street ( it’s very common in the these particular gas station) I parked my car got down on the ground to make sure the bottom of my car was ok. This guy comes out of no where and tells to me to give him 20, I gave him 10 while laughing very hard!

To have someone random believe in me gave me some inspiration. A little encouragement can help anyone conquer the world!

Master student -advice -
Go with the flow! It’ doesn’t matter what kind of flow it is just go with it! The flow can be created by yourself, it doesn’t have to be a flow that everyone is going on. The most important thing is to face whatever life brings at you with a constant flow.

On days like these, make sure to go outside to really enjoy it! -we sometimes get so caught up in our own world that we forget to enjoy moments that make us feel closer to earth.

You probably won’t get the advice, it took me a while to understand as well. Think about it and translate it for yourself.
