You understand your fears, attributes that hold you back and your behavior in unexpected or unusual situations. This is exactly how you get to know yourself better and realize your potentials.
You must build on your instincts around people and the environment.
It helps to gain the capacity of dealing with critical and analytical activities like managing teams, assessing people and identifying opportunities.
2. You learn how to find a way in the chaos
As the only person responsible for your life, you learn to become self-reliant and start searching for solutions in a menace.
You try and talk to locals for directions, finding places to feed your stomach, knowing more about the city and its culture. The entire journey revolves around you making attempts to finding a way out.
You’re usually clueless about what will happen next and how, but you still keep moving forward to discover. There’s a solution to every problem, known or unrevealed. To search for it is up to us.
3. It pushes you to stay out of comfort and embrace challenges
As a traveler, if we shift our approach from ‘why do I have to tackle this problem’ to ‘I need to take a next level challenge’, the scope of personal growth intensifies.
Comfort brings in ease, inviting fear and resistance to difficulties. On the other hand, overseeing comfort over opportunity upskills strength, maturity, and quality of life.
Even in business, the best of ideas emerge when a workforce chooses to think on broader spectrums. They come out of distinct realities and not from easy situations.
There might be a hundred reasons for you to escape traveling alone, but if you can dare to dream, you can become what you envision.
Venture on your own to discover, enhance and rebuild a new life.
