Living A Life Of Adventure.
Ever caught yourself day dreaming about travelling the world? Finding excitement and adventure in foreign lands?
Well, there is an easier way.
There’s a way you can experience all the excitement, adventure, and the thrill of really living that you’re looking for without leaving the country.
In fact, you don’t even have to change what you’re doing or where you’re going, or even spend a cent!
Yes, I understand this sounds like a cheesy, quick fix, infomercial but it couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, this is something you can use straight away.
Yes, this is going to give you everything you’ve been looking for from outside yourself. But no, you’re not getting any steak knives and this doesn’t come with an easy installment options.
So how do you do it?
How do you bring this energy and excitement into your life?
How do you bring the passion and adventure that you day dream about, into every area of your world?
Well, what excites you right now? What activities allow you to experience this sensation at the moment? If you don’t have any activities in your life, right now, what’s done it for you in the past?
And more specifically, what is it about those activities that excites you? Is it the familiarity, the ease, the low levels of concentration required?
Or is it the novelty, the newness, the challenge?
Now, what if you were to bring those characteristics that are responsible for the excitement that you experience into everything you do?
What if, in every activity you currently undertake in your life, you choose to make it new and challenging?
What if, instead of sticking to the same routines and patterns that you always follow, you choose to change things up.
What if, instead of going out to the same bar after work and chatting to the same people, you took charge, headed somewhere new, talked to new people, and drank something different?
What if, instead of eating the same thing every day, you bought yourself a cook book from a different country and tried a new dish every night?
What if, instead of sitting alone in the food court at lunch time, you rocked up to a table full of people and joined in their conversation?
But it doesn’t have to be that extreme.
What if, instead of just talking about the same old topics that you run over in those monotonous conversations that go on in your circle of friends, you changed it up and shared how you really felt?
Or what about asking all the questions that have been sitting on the tip of your tongue? The ones that everyone is dying to know the answer to but doesn’t have the balls to ask?
What if, instead of staying safe and tucked into your safe little routine, you pushed yourself and challenged yourself in every activity you did? How would your experience of life be then?
Sure, you still might want to travel but would travelling hold the promise of a life that didn’t’ so closely resemble yours?
And even if you did fly overseas, land in a new country, and started setting up a new life.
How long do you think the novelty would last? 3 months? 6 months? A year? Whatever number you come up with, it’s only going to be temporary.
It’s only going to be a short amount of time before you drift back into routine and habit and you find yourself day dreaming about a new country.
The life of adventure that you’re looking for doesn’t lie on some overseas shore, or some tropical jungle, it’s right here in front of you.
It’s in the next person that you pass on the street.
It’s in the office cubicle next to you. It’s in the supermarket. It’s everywhere, waiting for you to step up and take a chance.
So next time you catch your mind wandering off to some far away place in a hope of finding excitement and adventure, stop and look around you.
Everything you’ve been looking for might be right in front of you.
