What if I get lost? Where am I going to eat? Where am I going to stay to sleep? How am I going to communicate? I don’t speak the language, etc…
For many, especially those who are going to travel for the first time, traveling can be terrifying, with so many uncertain variables that are beyond our control and knowledge.
That is why we have decided to make this guide so that you can learn to overcome the fear of traveling:
The fear you feel before leaving on a trip is similar to the fear felt by a mother who let her teenage son go out to a party and it’s past time for her to return. Your mind is imagining all sorts of possible and devastating scenarios.
The only way to overcome any fear is to confront it and in the case of travel, it is to go on a trip.
Once you do, you will be able to turn and think. Was this really what he was afraid of? You will discover that your fears were only in your imagination and nothing else, that really everything is possible.
Traveling will test all your skills and abilities. It will really show you what you are capable of with limited resources. It will force you into strange, uncomfortable, and out of the ordinary situations that you will have to get out of in some way or another.
But it is not always necessary to wait for a big trip or out of the country to test this ability, you can do many things that will put you in the same situation within a controlled environment.
The only thing that is required to travel anywhere in the world is confidence in believing that you are capable of doing it.
