Traveluxblog | Moritz & Sabrina

We’re both students and “suffer” from chronic wanderlust. Thus, we travel passionately as often as we can – mostly on weekends, but also during university vacations.

Another of my friend, Anna who joined an American data procurement company as a sales executive beginning of this year, quit…

Bop it! taught the importance of paying attention. It even demonstrated how things in life can go by quickly, and you may lose an opportunity to “win” if you don’t pay attention.  Monopoly taught one of the many ways the rich get rich (and how to alienate friends). Then there’s dodgeball. I think you see where I’m going with this. If not, sit back, relax, and read. The game of dodgeball is like opportunities. There are three lessons to take away from dodgeball: 1. The opposition OR life obstacles In life we all encounter “haters,” people who try to get ahead by holding you back (or getting you out), or who just want to keep you down so they can stay in the game. These people (and life) with throw many obstacles your way. Then there are the people who are… 2. Your teammates OR your support system These are the people who are on your side. They want to see you succeed …
