Travelling on your own for the first time? Growth mindset tips & tricks!
Travelling on your own for the first time is such an adventure! Sometimes you may need a lil bit of growth mindset though to get you going. Stepping into the Travel-Zone is a journey that starts with an idea, a dream and a dose of creativity.
Today I'll start setting the foundation for the videos: some things are not that obvious. There’s a reason why people keep asking the same questions. Why am I saying this?
I posted something on a facebook group as I was brainstorming for this. I mentioned that I would love the blog to be a “travel school”. Someone made a comment that really got me thinking. She mentioned that travelling is not chess and that she didn’t need much in the early days as travelling itself was her school.
But here’s the thing. Even though this may be an obvious assumption, getting in the zone of growth mindset and get going can be very intimidating, at least at the beginning. I personally think it's a lot of fun though!
Check the main show notes. Go ahead you, Independent World Traveller!
1- Turn off external voices
You are the main person you need to listen to. Be aware of the influence people have in your life.
2- Enter a space of possibility aka Growth Mindset
Some of us may be wired to think of the worst outcome. Well, it is possible to re-wire and change our perspective over things. It may be challenging but it's worth it.
3 - Avoid information burn-out
We tend to get obsessed with budgeting, how to get flights and deals, visas and blah blah. And that’s all good, but there's a difference between being obsessed before travelling on your own for the first time, and running in circles and actually doing a concrete action to become a smart, wise, informed traveller.
And this leads me to my favorite travelling mindset tip:
4- Trust that you will go on that trip
It may take time, effort and you may face a lot of challenges, but allow yourself to trust. I usually think we need to find all the answers to our questions because deep down we fear our dreams are so fragile that any little thing could harm them.
