Traveling is something almost everybody wants to do.
Whether it is to go out exploring the unknown or even taking time off to just relax. Travel is something unimaginably amazing.
People have dreams of doing something fun and exciting. They plan out everything they are going to do and see.
Yet as time passes by, the dreams slowly start fading away.
And eventually the dream dies.
Not many get to have a chance to travel in their lives.
They often have many excuses and reasons as to why they aren’t able to travel.
Things like having bills to pay, kids to watch, job schedule is too hectic, money problems, no time, etc. The list can go on and on.
They always keep saying the same things. “We’ll travel next week”, “Next month”, “Next year” and so fourth. “It just isn’t the right time right now”.
However it’s that kind of thinking that will keep you from ever traveling.
I mean, when is it really going to be the right time? Is there even such a thing as a right time”?
To be honest, the idea of thinking that there is definitely going to be a right time is just plain wrong.
There is never going to be a time when everything is right and you are free to do whatever you want, whenever you want.
You are still going to have bills to pay. You are still going to have to work. You are still going to have money issues. You are still going to have family/friends who are dragging you to do something.
There is never a right time.
Lets face it.
If today is not the right time for you, neither is tomorrow or the week after or the month after or even the year after.
Stop With The Excuses
The first thing you need to realize is that it is easy to come up with excuses and reasons as to why you are not able to do stuff. Plus the more time you take to fill your head up with all these excuses and reasons, the less time you’ll have on actually taking some sort of action.
I know it’s easy to say “I will start next year, when I have more money, have more time”. However when next year comes, you will have even more reasons and excuses on why you can’t travel. It’s a never ending cycle. And one that you need to break out of.
There are countless amounts of people out there who never do anything except make excuses. They don’t try to challenge themselves to break free and actually step out of their comfort zone.
A lot of them have the idea that things will never end for them. They keep hold of this believe and keep pushing things off until things get too hard.
It’s like they are all in a bubble, where they are safe and comfortable. It provides them a sense of security of safety. Which is why many people don’t want to break out of it. They are scared that if they do, something might go terribly wrong.
It Helps To Break Out Of Your Shell
There are many studies that have shown that when people tend to look back on their lives, the most common regrets that they have are not actually the risks they took but the ones they didn’t.
Those who tend to seize any opportunities given to them are most likely able to run wild with it. They realize that they don’t have a lot of time on their hands so they have to make the best out of what little time they have left. These are the people who are really living life.
Some of the most common things that people do is basically not being assertive enough and failing to seize the moment. So instead, take every moment given to you and live life to its fullest.
Just Do It
The biggest thing most people have to face is to simply just get started. You have to make that important decision to take a leap and just go for it.
After all, if you just keep thinking that you’re going to do it tomorrow, the week after, etc, you will never be able to move forward.
Eventually you’ll run out of time.
There won’t be a tomorrow anymore.
There won’t be a next week.
There won’t be a next month or year.
Instead, you’ll be left with nothing but sadness and regret that you never took the step to move forward.
So don’t wait anymore.
Just go out and do it.
Life will handle itself out. You don’t have to worry about what might happen to your life or if any drastic changes will occur. Everything will be just fine.
For instance, if you are planning on traveling long and worried about your bills. Then just cancel them. Worried about your job? You can always find another or heck you can even work while traveling. There are always things you can do to get your life the way it was when you come back.
There world is full of endless possibilities.
There is nothing you can’t do.
As long as you put your mind up to it, then the world is your oyster.
So break out of your shell and start today!
