            Self-reflection is great esp for a few years of being alone. At some point though, as social animals, we know we need someone to add other perspectives in our thoughts or ideas, do this for a long period of time, not sure if that's the ideal way of living

                I agree. I've been a big fan of slow travel. I hate travelling normally doesn't feel the same. I wish I was able to do more of are so lucky to do this at your age.

                  Thank you Nathaniel, such an inspirational video. I love your reflection on the stress of certain forms of travel and the concept of slow traveling to create time to form relationships with the people and place. Much love

                            That's a good advice there, focus on people not yourself

                                        Nathaniel, pieces fell together for me when I saw this video. I'm currently in a state of my life where I really don't understand who I am and what I should do with my life. The part of slow-traveling really got me but I immediately started doubting and thinking things like; where do i start? How much will it cost? Where do I stay when I travel to those places? How do I find such a place. I'm truly inspired but... as you can read, I overthink. Do you have any tips?

                                          Hey Robert I haven't got any tips about slow-traveling however what I know is that if you only think about it it will never happen! Stop overthinking just take massive action! You will never feel ready to go for it.. who knows you might start and decide that you don't even want this anymore! Just as Nathaniel said it's a game, it's an experiment! Life becomes truly amazing when you take off the pressure by changing your perspective in such a way.. wish you all the best!

                                          First of all you need to know that you 're inspiring a girl from the other side of the planet,a persian girl from Iran which you may even have n't ever heard the country.yet I have to say I had absolutely no idea ;one moment in my night time routine I will accidentally find you on my youtube feed since i subscribe matt d'avella 's channel and feel so inspired by the way you approach your professional goal "storytelling".you re already a life story teller.honestly,i feel so behind when i see a guy at the same age as me,has such a great almost clear pov about life.watching some of your videos tonight made me feel blessed that there are people like you on this planet thinking this way about life.we are so on the same page and i saved all your videos to my "watch later playlist".wish you the best of luck.

                                              Great video! A lot of the ideas you use in this video are very similar to the things I read in a book- Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans.
                                              The book helped me a lot in finding my "North Star" and designing my path ahead. Do check it out!

                                                  your videos are trash , you talk a lot but end up saying nothing at all

                                                    I'm starting to feel like we're on this journey together. I found your videos about six months ago, when I was finishing off university and completely lost about what to do next. Fast forward to now, I'm making a decent living from writing (my childhood passion) and living in Mexico with my boyfriend. I'm also 22. I have no idea where I'll be in the future, but for the first time, I feel like I'm on the right path. Thank you for the beautiful videos and I look forward to seeing where we both end up.

                                                        Man, hope you see this, you should get into MBTI (cognitive function theory) and Enneagram, it will make things so much clearer for you. You're an INFJ

                                                          Thank you for this video, Nathaniel. I think I find myself going through cycles. Like one day it strikes me and I know what to do, then weeks pass and all of a sudden I'm not inspired or happy or willing to do that anymore. I think I needed to hear about the process of finding north stars because it made a lot of sense to me and it also made me feel less anxious about the future. Thank you so so so much, your search for mental clarity is super inspiring. Greetings from Mexico!

                                                                                You are making this video Nathaniel but the same question keeps coming to my mind! How can you achieve your "northern stars" without having some kind of financial back up? Not all of us have that financial security. I am going through a similar process to you but I'm not doing so well figuring things out. We can't just simply go living the life we truly want without having to conform to our capitalistic society. So tell me Nathaniel Drew, how did you achieve your goals? Did your mum and dad help you out financially? I don't have those people in my life. I work as a nurse and I love my job but I simply can't do it anymore because I am so discontented with life. I feel detached and feel the need to escape. I'm assuming you were at this stage at some point in your life. I don't mean to be rude or sound condescending. I simply want to ask, how can you make your life work for you without financial security. If i knew the answer to that then nothing would stop me from going out and trying to find what really makes me tick and gives my life a sense of worth and happiness. regards, Steven.

                                                                                      Thank you! I have been dabbling with the idea of life being a game. My perspective has been changing regarding things like my education, urgency of finishing my assignments, taking things very seriously, etc. But there's also the fear of falling behind in this game where there's a possibility that your peers would be moving ahead and you'd be simply inching forward, them being miles ahead of you. Changing this perspective does decrease my anxiety but there ought to be something else to this 'life is a game' perspective that I'm not seeing. Something's missing. Is this just way too simplistic?
