Decision Making Time for First solo trip

It all started with a simple sudden thought after a movie “Into the Wild” seen in 2011 during unemployment days of September. This thought of travelling alone was exciting as I had never tried this stuff before, and didn’t took the leap at that time, as I ignored this thought in the name of other priorities at that time like Job searching, to be be fit in technology market by learning relevant skills and all that which didn’t excite me that much, but it was a necessity of time then.
During college days also, I didn’t took a leap to participate in IV visits (i.e college picnics to different states hill stations) as my parents said we don’t waste our money on you like this, just study hard and show us good grades and as a Good child I agreed and not followed what I wanted due to lack of money as well as lack of decision making on my part.
Like this, as a good elder child of home, in order to be example to younger siblings, cousins, I followed a path which looked good, but not exciting enough to utilize my physical capabilities like strength and on the feet thinking to tackle current problem on hand.
After working for 2 years in IT industry in one of the prestigious MNC company where we used to work in a AC restaurant kind of environment with a big ocean of cubicles around me, where people don’t talk, they mostly chat via their PC to nearby cubicles.
During this time in MNC, I learnt few important things, whoever great person I liked in company was under some or the other pressure to perform even if they don’t like their job/task and they usually say “ we don’t have any other option,then to save this Job and do it a Good way”.
So in order to live as I like to live, I understood that If I don’t take plunge now , then nobody will care to do so for me, so I’m the decision maker of what I want from my life and how to proceed to it.
As you know, more thinking breeds doubt in self and more and more negative opinions start appearing true and we finally decide against our will in persuasion of so called “Secured Choice” because we are afraid to look as idiot who makes wrong choices, as from childhood onward we learn that making mistakes is Wrong, but that’s the only way , by which we learnt our some of the valuable lessons till now. So this same thought was emphasized in a Book “Good to Great” that those who makes mistakes, actually creates something new which is sustainable.
Based on this thought process, I took a plunge to follow my dreams of creating a small company as well as to take on this Lone tour of north west India.
