Episode 14: Breaking Stereotypes

Sara M blog post

We’ve all been raised by our families and communities to live and act a certain way. From a very young age we are taught not only what to value but how to treat others based on how we are taught to view them. However, as we get older what happens when we do activities and begin to look at the world that contradicts what we’ve been taught? Personally, I feel since our communities want the best for us and us wanting to fit in is key. It can be very challenging and almost at times fighting against ourselves to do what  we’re meant to do. One of the main goals of this podcast is to help push as many people as possible to not only chase their dreams but to look at the world as their home. Not only their local communities. To go beyond our limits  and to live outside our comfort zone to become the best person we can be. Not only for the betterment of us personally, but more importantly for the the world.

In this episode, I’m excited to have on Sara. A female freerunner who’s family immigrated from Jordan. Her gaol is to inspire others to go after their passions. If you have a passion, you need to willing to get uncomfortable. The reason for this is because comfort leads to being idle. We talk about how important it is to stay out of the comfort zone as much as possible. If life is beginning to become too predictable, then it may be time for a change.

We also discuss her experiences in Japan, Syria, and Germany. How a building in Germany really made her reflect on not having the past repeat itself. One of the highlight destinations we talk about is how Japan is culturally. The people there really go out of their way to help you. I tell Sara how I feel Japan is a great starting place for anyone who is interested in backpacking for the first time. One of the biggest takeaways from this episode is what failure means to her. Why it’s too important to never give up and achieving your dreams.
