At the beginning of 2011 we started a campaign called Start Something You Love. We kicked it off on 19th January with our big Esc winter party in front of 600 people at Guanabara bar in central London.
We are now following it up with 365 bits of advice from real people who are doing interesting and inspirational things with their lives. And we asked them all the same question:
“HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”
This week we have 7 quotes from people who have done or are doing big adventures…
#91: Mark Kalch - Full-time professional adventurer
It is not until you act upon good advice that you benefit from it.
#92: Steve Fabes - Doctor cycling the 6 continents…
Think big and don’t listen to the skeptics.
#93: Rob Lilwall – Cycling home from Siberia…
Life’s an adventure – live a great one.
#94: Danny Boy Bent - ex-Mayfair trader, cycle adventurer
“You are mad, bonkers, off your head. But I tell you a secret, all the best people are.” Alice In Wonderland – Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
#95: Jodie and Tom - Ex-city duo cycling to Rugby World Cup!
Tom just has to say “You are only limited by your own imagination” to remind me of what I am doing and why.
Because I love this. It reminds me of the freedom we have, of how big the world is and really how unimportant most of the things I worry about are!
Think like a kid, without limits. For anyone who seriously wants to do a bicycle trip, we have plenty of tips/ friends/advice so please contact.
#96: Henry Brydon - Cycling London to Sydney
These are stolen words from Henry David Thoreau’s book. Although slightly cheesy, fairly profound:
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
#97: Jackson Williams - Adventurer & barefoot runner:
Be true to yourself and never stop trying.
Plan in advance, and just try to enjoy the experience, but expect the worst to happen, so it can only get better.
Now do three things…
