The mind is a powerful tool. After all, we manifest what we want in our lives whether we are conscious of it or not. That means that the more we focus on something, the more likely it is to become a bigger part of our lives. So, the best way to bring more travel and adventure into our lives is by focusing on travel, understanding what keeps us from traveling, and seeing how to fix it. For instance, I made travel my prime way of life, but only after I committed to travel completely as a way of life and invited it in. Only after I decided to manifest travel. To see what I mean, let’s analyze more about what stops people from traveling here below. Let’s start there.
What Keeps People from Traveling?
I just recently visited the Travel and Adventures Show in San Diego where I was able to talk to various travel experts. A lot of these people have made travel their way of life, while others think of travel as a hobby. Regardless, experts believe that the the top three reasons people don’t travel are: fear of the unknown, money, and time. In my opinion, that is relatable and true. Travel is expensive, which would automatically make money an issue for most people. Then comes time. If you have a great job and money isn’t a problem for you, odds are that you can’t find the time off to take your ultimate vacation. So, how do you bring travel into your life? Well, the first step is to understand the problems, which we have done. Now, how do we go about fixing these problems?
Step 1: Lower the Cost of Your Travel
While I can’t give you time, I can give you the first step to bringing travel into your life: find tips to save money on your ultimate vacation. So, research is key here! There are plenty of sites ready to give you countless tips on saving money on travel. Expert Russell Hannon has a website that gives tons of travel tips on saving money while booking your big trip. And, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, be sure to visit the Travel and Adventure Show, as they have multiple lectures daily on how to save you money for travel. Plus, the show features exhibitors from around the world who are looking to give you deals on travel. Saving money on travel is actually pretty simple if you know exactly what to look for. So, start searching for tips!
Step 2: Don’t be Afraid to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
Aside from time and money, the other big reason people don’t travel is the fear of the unknown. A few different travel experts mentioned this to me before I stepped into Josh Gate’s lecture at the Travel and Adventure Show in San Diego. Josh furthered this idea in his lecture. He explained that, as a society, we are too comfortable in our daily lives. Because our lives are now set up to cause us as little stress as possible, we aren’t stimulating our brains. If we break out of our comfort zone when traveling, we are forcing our brain to work on a different level, stimulating our brains and creating memorable adventures. So, you have to accept that going to a new location may be scary, but it will get you out of your comfort zone, which will, in turn, help you grow as a person. Travel is good for us! Don’t let your fears control you! Will Smith has been quoted as having said, “The best things in life are on the other side of fear.” Let that soak in.
Step 3: Manifest Travel with Your Thoughts and Actions
The more we think about travel, actively research and plan for trips, and accept the travel opportunities that come into our lives, the more we will travel. By saying, “Yes!” to travel and putting it into our daily thoughts, the more we will travel. It’s that simple. Make it a natural part of your everyday life and truly want it, and you will always find a way to do it.
So, I recommend taking time each day to start your day with a meditation. Really stop and see yourself traveling to all the places you want to. Manifest travel! Visualize what you want your future to look like, and that’s a great first step to clarifying what you want and laying the ground work to get it.
