Activating The Travel Mindset
Other than the “I don’t have money to travel” myth is this unwritten rule that says that once we return back from our travels, we have to “snap back” into reality. Whatever that is. As if traveling the world wasn’t real lol.
How annoying right?
What if you could continue tapping into the feeling(s) of travel? The moments that took your breath away, the moments that helped you grow, the realizations that expanded your mind unlike anything – the moments and feelings of possibilities! What if you could create your own Travel Mindset? A feeling and overall lifestyle that can allow you to continue that spark for life, if you will, that can often feel when you are traveling.
Download my FREE Activate the Travel Mindset guide to get started with the foundational questions to ask yourself when establishing your own version of the Travel Mindset, and what that looks and feels like for you.
The Curious Traveler Mindset Checklist
You’re a traveler who loves to explore the depths and the why’s of the world. You don’t take what is as an answer, you always have to know more.
I get it – I am that person too.
You want a few guiding prompts to help you pick out which activities you *actually* want to participate in, instead of what is recommended. But how? Click below to receive my FREE checklist called the Curious Traveler Mindset Checklist, and begin creating your ideal itinerary with the prompts inside, and customize it to the activities available in the destination you’ll be going to!
You want to explore the world, travel solo one day, create your own memories, and have those stories that make you feel fulfilled and like you actually lived your life to the fullest. I totally understand, we all do!
But the thing stopping you from going after creating those memories all over the world is a fear of the unknown – being lonely, getting lost, or not feeling 100% sure that you can do it (which you 100% CAN just fyi).
I get it! I was there, and no one is born with this innate 100% confidence in themselves when they travel. Something that’s helped me has been creating affirmations whenever I find myself in a challenging situation of doubt – especially self doubt (ohh yes this one).
You can create your amazing, soul-fulfilling travel memories, meet the amazing people, and stay at all the places you’ve always wanted to stay in starting NOW. By creating a story different from the one you’ve probably repeated over and over again in the past that’s kept in you in the same mindset.
