Everybody’s got an excuse for why they can’t travel.
“It’s too expensive!”
“I have to take care of the kids.”
“I’d have to leave my job.”
“I’m afraid of other people.”
The thing is, those are just excuses.
Travel is not too expensive, if you’re creative and willing to change your idea of what traveling is.
You can take the kids with you, if you do a little preparation. People do it all the time.
You can work out a “work-from-home” deal with your boss. Just start small and negotiate.
People aren’t as scary as you think. In fact, most people are really nice, even to Americans.
The benefits to seeing parts of the world that are not your own far outweigh any risks, real or imagined. You’ll never see anything worthwhile if you let your fears get the best of you.
What’s holding you back from going where you want to go? I’m willing to bet I can convince you that your fears are unfounded.
