In a world full of overwhelming stress and suffocating responsibilities, it may be difficult to keep that spark in your eye and you may be feeling as though you have lost confidence in yourself and lost control of your situation.
Sometimes taking time to regain control of your life means actually choosing what makes your heart flutter. For many, simple alone time and a good book could strengthen your patience with the everyday highs and lows. Some are fine with going to their favorite local spots day after day but when it's more than that... when you need a spark that brings new butterflies to your stomach...when you need a little harder nudge to feel empowered, the solution may be to just pack up for a week and see something new that makes you appreciate the beauty in the world!
Travel can empower your spirit, empower your body, and empower your mind. Your Life Travel Club strives to keep our members empowered and loves showing others how travel can empower you to grow and teach how to fully take control of the life that you choose to live every day.
Here are our top 5 ways that travel can empower you:
PATIENT YOU = BEST YOU As you may know, travel almost always requires some work on your part. Unless you are riding along on a trip you didn't have to plan for, a trip you you don't have to pay for, and have no responsibilities pertaining to the trip at all, then you know that there will always be some sort of foot that you must put forward (even if it's not your best foot). With traveling comes the stress of planning the trip and ensuring all your ducks are in a row which could build resilience in you that you will be able to use when facing the challenges on your daily walk. Being willing to pack up and visit an unfamiliar place is signing up for not knowing what to expect, not knowing who you will meet, and not knowing the exact experience you will have. Ultimately, you are forced to have patience (even if this something you struggle with) and adds to your character none the less.
LIVE IN THE MOMENT Unless you are the traveler that visits the same place over and over, travelling requires a sense of serenity and living in the now! When you set your heart to visiting somewhere new, you must never set yourself up to expect everything that will come your way. Forcing yourself to deal with the triumphs and extraordinary experiences that come, will grow your spirit and will help you bring the same growth to your life back home. Living in the moment empowers you to appreciate where you are at that exact time and provokes gratefulness in your heart.
BECOME SELF-AWARE Traveling can low-key be a daily test, testing your ability to deal with unfamiliar things that may ultimately throw you off guard and off your game. If you really want to know what you are made of, make the decision to travel to a completely different country, plan an entire trip, and make the promise to yourself that whatever happens happens. This will build your self-awareness and will truly portray the strength you have within you. Imagine coming home from a crazy trip that you handled well, you will feel as though you are able to accomplish anything and it is that exact feeling that you need to be the best you and live your best life.
OPEN-MINDEDNESS OPENS OPPORTUNITIES During our day to day life, we can become overwhelmed and become closed-minded which could lead to shorting our potential and the potential for other opportunities to come to us. Being open to traveling will make you open to new things and we all know that when you are eager for more, you can manifest exactly that to come to you. Take that trip you have been putting off for so long, and who knows, maybe you will be taking that promotion that you are offered in the near future!
WORLD-WIDE CONNECTIONS Ever feel like you are in a place of familiarity and surrounded by the same people doing the same things? That's because you are! Step out of your comfort zone and get to know the people you meet on your trips. These could become life-long friends, business partnerships, or even a pen-pal! Connecting with diverse groups can empower you to embrace your differences and accept others.
New you, who dis? So you decided to take that trip that makes your stomach retain the butterflies you were searching for and now you are wondering what you will bring home with you besides that souvenir that you picked up. You will bring home a new version of yourself that you will love and grow with the more you strive for a better you. Come back with all of the empowering experiences that you can apply to your career, your family, and your faith. Come back with power and control that you so longed for and know that at the end of the day, this is YOUR life and you deserve to live it the best way that you can!
