So you want to go on a trip around the world? A lot of people dream of traveling the but most of them never do.
Do you know why?
Because most people keep asking themselves
And they keep asking it and asking it and asking it and giving themselves reason after reason that they can’t do it now.
“It’s not the right time for me to take a trip around the world”
“I don’t have enough money to travel the world right now”
“I wouldn’t even know where to start with planning a world trip”
“I can’t get enough time off work for world travel”
and on and on and on the reasons go.
But the thing is, these aren’t really reasons.
These are excuses.
None of these “reasons” are insurmountable. But the thing is unless you stop seeing these as a reason not to even try to take that trip around the world you won’t even bother trying to overcome them, becuase what would be the point?
So when really is the right time to take that trip around the world?
Well at least the time to make the firm decision that you will travel and start working towards making that happen is most definitely now.
There will never be a perfect time to travel, and there will always be a multitude of things that might stand in your way from traveling at any point in time. But since that’s never going to change, since the world is never going to miraculously align itself so it is simple and easy for you to jet off on your trip around the world, now is as good a time as any to make the decision to go.
In fact it may be the best time to make the decision that you will travel since it tends to be the case that as the years go on we only find ourselves with more and more commitments that we would have to work around in order to go away.
Think you have a lot of commitments now? Give it another 10 or 20 years? I bet you’ll have more.
Even if you own a house, renting out your home for travel can even be something you use to make your travel dreams come true. I should know, I have four of them. Not everything that initial appears as an obstacle is.
So make the decision, now, today, that you are going to travel.
The first step to any action is decision. You’ve got to know what you’re aiming for to get there. Make the decision to go and then start working on all the things you need to get in place to allow that to happen.
You’re likely to find that all the parts start falling into place easier than you expected them to.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said:
Make your decision. I look forward to seeing you on that trip around the world soon.
Like it? Pin it.
I’ve always been a bit of a planner and so the thought of travel without a plan used to make me very anxious. My natural tendency is to want to know what I’m going to do and when. Where I’m going to go and where I’m going to be. What there is to see and...
Having been away since quitting my job in 2014 by far the most frequent comment I get isn't how to save money to travel, it's "Oh, I wish I could afford to travel". Or sometimes, on the slightly more scathing end of the spectrum, "Well you must just really...
