The Mindset is What Matters Most

Money, money, money...

I can just hear the ABBA song playing in your head...over and over again. Lack of funds is the #1 reason (not fear) why most people never take the plunge to travel. You know how it is. As you're running over in your mind where you would go on your travels and how wonderful it's going to be, you run face first into the brick wall affectionately known as reality. Suddenly you remember the stack of bills you have to pay: the rent and the car payment and credit cards galore.

Yikes. Well, that puts you in your place, doesn't it? Forget traveling, you say - you just need to get by.



Think outside the box and it can be done. Plan your work around your travels...not the other way around. The key here is to get yourself in the mindset. The traveling will follow. Don't let negative people, places, and things get you down. Keep your eye on the goal and use your creativity to the utmost degree. Think, speak, and dream travel.

One resource that I highly recommend for inspiration is The Secret. It is a movie as well as a book and is available on Amazon. You can also read about the basics of it for free on the website at

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." -Lao Tzu
