According to the Mayan Calendar the end of the world is on December 21st.
This is a unique opportunity for you to get called out on your fears and to be brutally honest about what is stopping you from learning how to create a stress free travel experience.
What if there was a day when all travel ended, borders were closed, airports shutdown and you could never leave the United States again.
Would you be happy with where you have visited and what you have done?
Try to avoid being a skeptic for just this short exercise and embrace this state of mind for the next couple of minutes to find out what you value.
How to Travel for Free at the End of the World
Every time our flights are cancelled because of volcanic ash, hurricanes or other terrible natural disasters you taste the bitterness of missing a vacation.
Of course you can have trip insurance or fully refundable airfare so you can get your money back but what if you never get a chance to take that trip again.
But the end of the world does not mean a natural disaster or personal reasons pop up to cancel your trip.
There are also those people in their 50s or 60s who put off vacations for years and are left wondering when they will ever get to take their dream trips. Most of those people took the traditional path of working hard and cutting back on spending so they could afford to travel when they retire.
In recent days this type of story is more relevant as the current economic situation has wiped out many retirement plans for travel or moving abroad.
This has left many people wondering if they took the right approach and what they could have done differently to avoid this travel apocalypse. In my honest opinion, I think they sold themselves short, and could have traveled if they had the inspiration to do it.
As time passes you start to look for scapegoats for your lack of travel, the government, the economy, hassles of air travel or anything else we can think of. The truth is you are partially right, because most people ignore the important things in life – adventure, finding your dream destination, and awakening to the power of the world around you – and instead focus on frivolous things in life.
But you also have to take personal responsibility. Realize that you can start to make changes today and break that American Dream of working hard for 50 years and spending all your retirement traveling.
To Prepare for the End:
Why wait to do something tomorrow that you can do today?
Plan your next vacation like it’s the last time you will ever get on a flight and I promise you that trip will be unforgettable. Don’t take your time for granted because that is something no amount of money will ever be able to buy back for you.
Use your time to travel now, because we never do know what the future holds for us.
To Your Reward Travel Success!
