Life Lessons Traveling Brings – Even for Business Travelers
This week’s inspiration comes from a very talented blogger, Amanda who has her own travel blog, A Dangerous Business. She wrote a post titled “26 Things Travel Has Taught Me” and I think these are all great lessons learned that can be applied to business travel too. 🙂
Every week, 5 tips will be revealed. Hopefully, these will inspire everyone that has traveled a lot to take a look back at each trip with new eyes.
The Media portrays the world to be a much scarier place than in reality. Sure, traveling abroad anywhere is going to be a bit scary because it is out of your comfort zone. Just be sure to be smart about your journey and everything should be fine.
Just because a country might have a poor past doesn’t mean that it isn’t different today. Pretty much every single country in existence today has suffered from war, terrorism, communism, etc. but that doesn’t determine the present day in that country. Don’t make a decision not to go somewhere because of a place’s past. People can change and so can a destination.
People all over are more alike than one might assume. You can’t always judge a book by it’s cover and you shouldn’t judge a person just because they look different, speak different, have a different culture because at the end of the day, we are all people and we are all searching for the same things. Happiness, prosperity, health, and love. So keep this in mind whenever you may have a different thought about someone else.
Being an American is a truly amazing blessing! We, as Americans, have the opportunity and privilege to travel pretty much anywhere we desire. Despite what is floating around, most countries love Americans too even if they might not agree with our government, they love the people and love getting to know more about us and our culture as well.
Stay positive and open-minded. This is a great tip not only in your travels around the US and abroad but also in your day-to-day life as well. Keeping an open-mind will open up possibilities that you never thought would be possible and makes life that much better! 🙂 As Amanda says, “forget what you think you know, and life will be much more rewarding.”
Thanks Amanda for your wonderful insight into life and traveling! Your tips are truly amazing and our followers will be deeply impacted by these too! 🙂
Stay tuned next week for 5 more tips.
Have a happy and healthy weekend and safe travels everyone!
