5 Inspirational Quotes That Will Motivate You To Travel The World

If you are like most people, you get stuck in a rut and never see much of the world. Whether you get bogged down with work and bills, or are just complacent and let life pass you by, human beings are creatures of habits and rarely get the inspiration necessary to step out of their comfort zone.

Some of the most common excuses people make for not traveling are generally just that: excuses. As the saying goes, “Where there is a will there is a way” and if you truly want to make something happen, you will do it.

Why is traveling so important?

Most people (especially Americans) rarely go outside their own city and therefore never broaden their horizons. Seeing how other people live is not only important to give you a new or fresh perspective on life, but it also teaches you empathy.

Lack of empathy for others is one of the main reasons why so many of us feel disconnected from each other. Since we can’t relate with their situation, we lack a deeper understanding and therefore become cold or shut off to those around us when they may be experiencing something we don’t understand.

So with that in mind, we wanted to share 10 inspirational quotes that will hopefully light a fire for those of you who have been thinking about traveling but have not pulled the trigger yet.

  1. “The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.” – Eminem

Simple and to the point. There are no guarantees in life which is why its so important we make the most of each day.

  1. “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

In this quote, the key message here is to stop waiting around for life to find you and go out and create your life. Sometimes you need to take the bull by the horns and make stuff happen. If you just sit around and wait, you might wake up one day realizing that you let life pass you by waiting for something to happen.

  1. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein

When we were children, everything in life felt so new and amazing. We walked around in awe of everything always curious and wanting to see whats on the other side of the hill. Over the years as we have gotten older, we lose our sense of curiosity and all of sudden, everything becomes mundane. Take this moment to see the world through the eyes of a child and remember that everything is a miracle.

  1. “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Saint Augustine

There is so much that this world can teach you. If you just have the willingness and desire to take action, the world can show you so much and you will become a better person because of it.

  1. “It is better to travel well than to arrive.” – Buddha

Or in other words, the journey is the goal. Do you remember as a child getting in the car so excited because you were going somewhere and because you were so excited the ride over was just as fun? Maybe you played games in the car or were so busy having fun looking outside your window. Whatever the reason was the journey to get to your destination was just as fun as getting there.

Life is short. Appreciate every moment you have and make sure you make the most of it. There is a whole new world waiting for you. All you have to do is take the first step.
