Traveling is an excellent sport, and it involves a wide range of benefits like knowing different cultures, breathing in different space, and enjoying various adventurous activities.
But the best part is knowing different people and finding that despite the differences, the moral code is similar and you can appreciate the varied cultures and be empathetic towards them. This opens up the door to become more generous and enjoy the human connection at another level.
All of this is good, but the trip is costly, especially if you want to travel far. Anyways, the farther you go, the varied the experiences become.
If you are living in an are where the water from the ocean is scarce, then you would be eager to find some places to read a book and wet your feet. Or you might wonder what a desert would be like – is the coldness of the desert similar to the coldness of snow or same cold climatic regions.
Questions are many, and many don’t have answers. The best you can do is experience the journey you take and become the best possible human being you can.
After all, these experiences add up, and you use them to make better decisions, be more open, and give more to the world.
The Recurring Deposit
If you are earning just enough to cover your expenses and have no money left, then you shouldn’t be worried about traveling. Instead, you should focus on improving your skill sets to make more money.
Of course, you could travel to a local environment to explore the areas which interest you and thus enrich your life.
Plan where you want to go – and find the estimated cost of your travel. For example, if you’re going to go to Madhya Pradesh and you are going to spend five nights then going at a rate of 2000 INR per day, it would cost you 10,000 INR. Add additional 5000 INR, and you have 15000 INR as your travel requirements.
Divide the budget by the 12, and you have roughly, 1500 INR per month. Open up a recurring deposit of that amount, and by the end of the month, you will have to money to travel. Do this every year, and you will travel every year without fail.
The common discomfort which you might come up is the argument that by opening the recurring deposit, you will have less money or no money to spend on things like shopping of clothes, eating out with friends on every weekend.
And that is bound to happen. Money doesn’t come from magic since your income is limited for you; the priorities need to be adjusted.
If you insist, traveling every year is essential to you, then you need to have that recurring deposit going on. Yes, you will spend less on other things, and that’s the price you pay for the happiness of traveling every year.
The Same With Life
This metaphor of priorities isn’t limited to travel. You need to check where you are spending your time and money.
Those are the things which decide your priorities in life. Whatever it is that you like, make sure you spend the time and money on them – by any means possible.
That way, you will end up achieving whatever you have envisioned for your priorities. It can be an annual trip, having better relationships or a bump in career. You have to have behaviors, time, and money adjusted for whatever you are hoping to achieve. You can do this, get your priorities straight now.
