Travel is Essential to a Full & Successful Life

Many philosophers and writers like Mark Twain see travel as essential for a balanced and full life.

Why is Travel So Important?

Difficult situations that arise while travelling, force the mind and body to heights you never knew you had. You can then draw on this enhanced thought in every-day situations or business problems.

Furthermore, the larger the obstacle you overcome on the road, the smaller your everyday problem will appear back home. Boosting your self confidence and making you feel more comfortable.

Travel Gets the Subconscious Mind Working

This can have a dramatic effect on the rest of your life

Either emotionally: making you a better person – more understanding or sociable. Or materialistically: opening a new opportunity to make money.

A Change Makes a Difference
JapanA different way of living or the time to think freely is beneficial. I find business books at an airport pay for themselves many times over. If I wasn’t on the flight, I wouldn’t have brought the book, and defiantly wouldn’t have had the time to read it. Similarly, writing while flying, can be more creative because the mind thinks differently.

Go to a New Country

New Friends
I’ve met some of my best friends travelling. Interesting people I see decades latter, and would never have come across otherwise.

Extremely Important
In short: travel is essential to success in life. Greater than most realise. And the more adventurous the trip, the more benefit.

Forget boring package holidays where the mind has little to work. Research online or invest in a Lonely Planet book, and go it alone. The problems you overcome will enrich your everyday living on return. And the opportunities you come across…..

Impressions Last a Long Time

Look back at your life: do you regret doing more things, than you regret not doing?
