Traveling is beneficial in a vast variety of ways. Some people find traveling relaxing and some people travel for the inspiration. As long as you feel fulfillment in traveling, there is no right or wrong reason to travel. 

Traveling is one of those things that everybody wants to do but most people don’t. They allow even the smallest situation to stop them from going on a life changing trip. Despite certain circumstances, sometimes you just have to make the decision to go to that place you’ve always wanted to visit. There is a good chance it can change your life. Below, I have listed a few ways that traveling can inspire a massive life change.

1. It can show you that you aren’t living where you want

A lot of people will talk negatively about the place that they live. Whether, it is the city, their home, or the environment they are in. Too many people talk down about the place they live but they don’t do anything about it. Traveling to new cities, states, or even countries can inspire you to change your location.

It can make you realize you don’t like where you live and that you want to live somewhere else. If you have this feeling or if you talk down about where you live, I suggest you travel and see new places.

2. It can produce the idea for a breakthrough in your business

Very often you will hear that, while traveling, a business owner thought of a new product or a ground breaking idea that changed their business dramatically. You even hear that while traveling, people think of ideas and open their own business.

Traveling has a unique way of helping you clear your mind which in turn helps you think more clearly for new ideas. A great example of this is Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks. While traveling in Italy, he noticed there were a high number of coffee bars.

Seeing all of these coffee bars and the community around them, spurred the idea of Starbucks opening up a coffee bar inside of the store. After implementing that idea, Starbucks is now a billion dollar company. If you are at a point in your business where you feel like you are stuck, try taking a trip to a place that you’ve been wanting to go and see if that helps reignite your creative thinking.

 

3. It can show you that your job isn’t exactly how you imagined it

Traveling to new places has the possibility of showing you that there are more fulfilling jobs out there than just sitting behind a desk. It can show you that there are jobs out there for you that can be fun and exciting. Doing work that you love is a very important aspect to life and has many benefits.

Popular tourism destinations can offer some of the most exciting jobs. Anything from being a tour guide to being a dive instructor on The Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Don’t be afraid to look at other employment options when traveling.

 

4. It can inspire you to pursue your passion

Pursuing your passion is something that most people don’t do. It takes courage to pursue your passion and you find happiness in doing something that you want to do. Traveling the world puts things into perspective and can help you gain clarity on what your passion actually is. Being in a breathtaking place has a very interesting way of making you think differently.

It helps bring out all of the creativity inside of you and can help you make the decision to follow your dreams. If you are feeling like you are just going through the motions in your life, take a trip and see how traveling can bring clarity to your life and help you figure out what you should be doing.

5. It provides you with a new perspective on life

One of the most mind-blowing things about traveling to places you’ve never been before, is the new perspective it gives you on life. It shows you how privileged you are if you come from a country that has a wide variety of resources every couple of blocks.

It can make you appreciate life that much more and it will give you a new outlook on life. Traveling to new places humbles you in many ways and will improve your attitude towards life in general. If you have a negative outlook on life, try traveling to a new place and see how it can dramatically change your perspective on your own life.

“Traveling tends to magnify all human emotions.” – Peter Hoeg

If you feel like your life is dull and boring and that you need a change in your life, simply start traveling and soon enough you will figure out what part of your life needs the change. Traveling has changed many things in my life and I know it can change many things in your life too.

What change are you looking for in your life? How will traveling help you find that change?

  1. Starting to Look travelling in a whole new dimension, its like having a new definition of freedom in our lives, where we escape from negative thoughts from around us and enter the world of new ideas, passion & creativity.

    Thanks for this great article 🙂

  2. I like that quote about the world is a book and staying at 1 place is reading only one page. Thumbs up! About passion… which is a interesting thing because the word “passion” comes from the Greek verb “to suffer”. So basically passion is a personal part of struggling, suffering and sacrifices that leads eventually to “the light”. This light is like the “reconnecting” with our authenticity which indeed burned to dead for so many. Great post!

  3. Great post! I love your point about traveling giving you a different perspective and opening doors to do what most people won’t do. Unfortunately most people die with their passion inside of them but the courageous individuals will always win the rewards of happiness. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Charlene! Thank you very much for commenting. I appreciate the kind words and I’m glad you enjoyed my article! Unfortunately, most people do die with their passion inside of them but my goal is to inspire people to do what they want to do and don’t look back!

  4. Tyler, I really enjoyed your writing. So happy to see you chasing your dreams! Best of luck to you and your girlfriend on your book.

  5. Traveling is really a great way to find yourself, and become accustomed and introduced to new cultures. I like that you said that traveling a relaxing can help provide a breakthrough in your business because of the peace of mind and clarity that you may gain, this is the time when most “big ideas” occur. I loved reading this article and I see that I have to get out and start traveling more. Very informative.

    • Thank you Lawrence! Really appreciate you taking the time to read my article and leave a comment. Traveling can certainly inspire new ideas or new ways of living your life. There are so many upsides to traveling! Even if you don’t think of a new idea or find a massive life change while traveling, at least you had the pleasure of seeing a part of the world and having a good time making memories.
