Travelling, this is something so few of us actually do. A lot of us talk about doing it, some of us actually do it and unfortunately some of us "think" we can't afford it. The reason I put think in quotes is because, you don't necessarily have to go to the Maldives or Rio or some other exotic place in the world.
If you live in Ibadan, Nigeria you could as well travel down to Lagos. If you live in New York, you might as well go take a whiff of Californian air. The main point is changing your location and/or environment to something different than you're used to. Now for us Introverts, that might not be the brightest idea but let me show you why it is.
1. Travelling Changes Your Perspective on Things.
This earth is one big mother******, excuse my language but that's just how it is. It's so big that it might seem like a suicide attempt to travel it all to most. But traveling actually is beneficial to you because it's let's you experience the vast various cultures, cities, traditions, philosophies, food etc of different civilizations across. It gives you an insight into other people's thought process and how they live they're lives. It broadens your thoughts and makes you see things differently as you have never seen them before.
2. Travelling can open doors to new opportunities
I have a question for you, why do you think most rich people like to travel? It's not just for the scenery you know. Travelling gives you the opportunity to connect with other great business minds such as yourself and exchange ideas and build relationships for long term mutual benefits . Now you might think " I can do that over a video call" but you can't build trust over video calls.
3. Travelling Inspires Your Creativity
Travelling has the potential to get your creative juices flowing, travelling usually has the power to put you in a good mood generally and when you're in a good mood, you're more likely to come up with the NEXT BIG IDEA.
Generally, travelling has loads more benefits and potential to enriching your life and broadening your views, thought process and perspective and increase your happiness. So why aren't you doing it more often?
