The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.  ~Saint Augustine

Travel changes everything!  When you travel, you broaden your horizons.  You open your mind to new experiences and you are never truly the same.

Before I had the opportunity to travel, I was quite a shy person.  The more I traveled and interacted with people and other cultures, the more confidence I gained.  I am now able to converse easily with people in a social or business setting.  Travel makes you “interesting” and people want to share their own travel “stories” with you.  Travel has universal appeal.   Ask anyone, “Where have you traveled?” and “Where would you like to travel?”  You will always get an emotional response and amazingly, answering the question will transport a person right back to that time and that place.  Most people have a travel bucket-list, and how interesting would it be to get this discussion going in your next network business meeting or family gathering?

Travel helped me to become a better business person!  With the confidence I gained, came a level of success which I believe go hand-in-hand.   An article in Psychology Today magazine, referencing a study done on travel showed “those who traveled tended to show an increase in Openness to Experience, Agreeableness (which reflects a need to get along with other people) and Emotional Stability relative to those who did not travel.”  Even if you don’t travel often, I know it can help you, if you open yourself up to the experience.

Travel smart and plan something out of the ordinary.  Visit another culture and immerse yourself in that experience and you will be educated!  I am not talking about a Bear Grylls, Man vs. Wild, type of adventure. Just get away from the average day-to-day and you will be rewarded with an experience that strips away blinders and fills your heart.

So, are you ready to open the book and turn a page?
