Exactly one year ago today (July 1st) I had the opportunity to do something that I wanted to do for a while, drive cross country. It doesn’t even feel like it has been a year. If I had the chance to do it again, I would in a heartbeat. The two weeks on the road were some of the best times that I’ve ever had. It’s a feeling that I am actively trying to create again. Being able to travel without any restraint is definitely part of my end game.
Since that trip I’ve learned a few things that I want to share with you all. These tips can help you with anything that you want to accomplish.
Planning is the key to making anything happen. Whenever you want to complete a goal take some time to plan it. Good planning helps you with the steps needed to complete your goal.
Get out of your comfort zone
Before the trip I had never drove that far before. I was nervous but I made it happen. Getting out of your comfort zone opens your life up to new possibilities. A lot of things are scary in the beginning; you just have to continue to make strides. One day your goal will be reached. For me getting out of my comfort zone allows me to grow and become a better person.
Believe that you can do it
Before I took the trip last year I always believed that I could do it. I didn’t know how, but I always believed. With planning and hard work I made it happen. You can too.
Enjoy the experience
Whenever you’re doing something make sure that you enjoy the experience. Enjoying different experiences is one of the best parts of life. I made sure to document the cross country trip with pictures, videos and I even wrote a journal. I did that for two reasons. The first reason is to help me remember specific details of the trip. The second reason is to use this as motivation to help me accomplish my next goal.
