September 5, 2016
In NU SKIN , every undertaking partner more or less has a dream of being a superhero. They are not content with being minor and tired of acting as a backdrop forever. On the stage of life, everyone wants to be the leading role, who is dazzling and brilliant. But thinking is just thinking. Are you really determined to abandon your comfortable life and take risks?
People desire a world of universal harmony, while hoping for a distinctive life. However, when people stand at the life crossroads, most of them decide to remain unchanged. If people say, hope is much more important than living , then courage is more precious than hope, because it is always easier to think, rather than to work out.
There was a railway worker who quitted his job at 35-year-old, sold out his house and then set off on a journey round the world with his family. As a brave man, he chose a way that many people will not take, and did what ordinary people desire but not dare to do. He eventually made his dream come true. Now, he enjoys his freedom and unique living style, "with the blue sky on the left hand and the broad ocean on the right hand".

At the beginning, people have doubt on this reckless trip. People thought that it was so luxury for an ordinary working-class family, or that Zhai Feng was irresponsible for the family. However, with great efforts, he achieved his dream step by step, and other people started to understood him. Apart from knowledge and experience, he received a lot of support and encouragement.
The most difficult part was not the process, but taking out the first step bravely. After they experienced everything, now they looked back, they found the life-and-death choice made at the very beginning has become less important, and they did not care them anymore.
