Tom Rogers had it good. He had a stable job abroad at a start-up in The Philippines, a salary that let him live well enough, and a promising future. But then he watched a TedX video that changed his perspective. And he chose to change his path.

“The whole point of the video was that life passes us by, if we don’t make it a point to pursue living a memorable life,” Rogers writes in an essay for the website Rappler. “For others, a pursuit of a memorable life may be spending more time with their children and working less. To me, a memorable life is to travel and experience different cultures, food, and ways of life.”

Since then, Rogers hasn’t looked back. He and his and his girlfriend, Anna Faustino, travel the world full time, repurposing their lives through travel, living simply and building their blog, Adventure In You.

We want to inspire people to live the life they have always wanted,” Rogers says. “Whatever you want in life, pursue it relentlessly and live your life free of regrets of the things that you didn’t do.”

It’s an inspirational lesson for all of us. You can read more of Rogers’ story here.
