I’m happy you’re here. It means you have a strong desire to travel the world. It means you have the travel bug, the passion for travel, and the heart of wanderlust. I have some very important words to tell you that you might need to hear. So please read this special letter that I wrote specifically for you.
You might be in a place where you’re not happy. Maybe you’re in a job you’re not passionate about, maybe you want more out of life, or maybe you just want to travel the world more. You have curiosity, you have courage, you have a deep desire to see what the world has to offer.
I know what it feels like to feel trapped in a job that doesn’t give you meaning or purpose. Maybe you feel trapped too. Maybe you know you were destined to do more. Maybe you’re sick of living for the weekend and having the Sunday Scaries. Maybe you realize that work isn’t everything, and living a life full of purpose is important to you.
I saw this quote back in 2016 while I was still working in my full-time job and it really spoke to me.
“We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything.”Jonah Lehrer
Every time I traveled, I felt this sense of passion, fulfillment, excitement, and everything about me was different. Every time I had to go home from vacation, home was exactly the same, but something about me was always different. Maybe you feel this too.
I know how you feel having limited paid time off, getting maybe 2-4 weeks of vacation, and wanting to travel more. Every time when you’re on vacation, you feel so happy, so free, and so at *home*.
I know those exact desires and those exact feelings.
I also know firsthand the struggles, the obstacles, the fears, the hesitations that hold people back from quitting their job to travel the world. But I also know the benefits, the breakthroughs, the adventures, and the most amazing life you can have traveling the world full-time and long-term.
It’s literally the most incredible experience you can do and it’s often what people look forward to for when they retire. But why wait until retirement to do the things you love? Why can’t you do it now?
Another quote that really spoke to me when I was afraid to make the leap was,
“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”randy komisar
We live our whole lives preparing and planning for the future.
When you retire, you’ll travel the world full-time and long-term. When you retire, you’ll start doing hobbies and things that make you happy. When you retire, you’ll start (fill in the blank).
Unfortunately, tomorrow is never promised. Life is unpredictable and life is short. As Randy Kosimar says, the most dangerous risk of all is to risk spending your whole life not doing what you want on the bet that you have the freedom to do it later.
Your career, your responsibilities, your commitments will always be there, but time won’t.
You have every right to have this dream become a reality.
You don’t have to scroll on social media and see other people traveling the world and wonder, “how do they do it?” or “I wish I could do that”.
You can have this life too. There’s no reason why you can’t. Every obstacle you might think you have, there’s a solution to it.
And because you’re here, reading this, and because you’re surrounded by this energy and the idea of traveling the world, it means it’s possible for you too. Whatever you believe in – God, Spirit, Universe – is showing you what is possible for you. Instead of thinking you can’t do it, think about why not you? Why can’t you have this?
I am not this special unicorn or a trust fund baby, and I didn’t hit the jackpot either. I don’t have more skills, ability, or courage than you do. I just had a deep passion for traveling the world and I recognized that life is too short to not be doing what I love.
You have everything you need inside of you to make this happen. You just need to make the leap. You just need to take the first step.
My biggest passion is helping you achieve this. Traveling the world has changed my life in so many ways. I get emotional thinking about it because traveling the world really transformed me, it made me grow, and it allowed me to experience such special moments all over the world that I’ll cherish for a lifetime.
It honestly breaks my heart thinking how many people want this life too, but don’t let it happen.
Remember, I did that for many years. I wanted to quit my job to travel, but I didn’t. I resisted hard. I went against my intuition, my gut, and what my heart truly wanted.
Maybe this is you. Maybe you can relate to all or some of this. Either way, I want you to walk away from this knowing that the net will appear after you take your first step and make the leap.
I want you to go after everything you want in life. I don’t want you to not follow your dreams of traveling the world because of fears, obstacles, or whatever is holding you back. I don’t want you to wake up one day and regret not listening to your desire to travel the world.
I want to conclude this letter with another quote that really pushed me to go after my dreams. It’s a quote from my favorite book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and it goes like this…
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”Paulo Coelho
I want you to remember that. No heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams. The fear of suffering, the fear of what if something happens, the fear of not knowing if this is the right decision will always be worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever actually suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.
