In this episode, Ladan discusses his trip to China. He discusses
the sights he saw, the experiences he’s had, as well as how China
Top three takeaways:
A lot of China’s advancements, such as the proliferation of
electric vehicles, bullet trains, and more modern ways of paying
for goods and services (such as facial recognition) are mostly a
matter of the last 3 or so years.
China is not a democratic country, as is clearly illustrated by
the “Great Firewall”, which censors the internet for its citizens.
VPNs are required to access common sites such as Google, Facebook,
Instagram, etc. However, the lack of democracy may be how China is
able to advance so quickly without much hindrance.
The best way to know what a country is truly like is to go and
see it for yourself. Propaganda and hearsay do not paint the true
picture of what a country is like. By visiting China, one can see
how modern and advanced they truly are.
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
