One of the great things about travel is that it allows you to step out of your current reality and see things from a different perspective.
It’s easy to get lost in the chores of life and forget to do the important things, like staying close to good friends or investing time in your passions. I’ve known many people (including myself) who have gone through a period where they know what they want to do (or have a rough idea) and that excites them, but something holds them back.
What the something is could be a lot of things. Fear. People around you telling you can’t. Lunch. People telling you that you should. Queazy about your age. Thinking you don’t know enough yet. Sunday Brunch. Your environment.
Mindset is a big one. It’s like the classic quote from Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” If you don’t believe you can do it, well, the reality of it happening stops there.
But believing you can’t is as worse as trying and failing, because a lack of belief in yourself doesn’t stop the desire and passion to go for it. We just keep wishing over and over again, AND never taking the leap.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
