Adventures teach me more about myself and the world around me. I gain insights and discover exciting opportunities.
I try new things. I shake up my familiar daily routines. I eat cereal for dinner or update my hairstyle.
I take worthwhile risks. I strike up my courage and focus on what I have to gain.
I remember that there can be a high cost attached to doing nothing. I test my limits. I venture out of my comfort zone. I realize that I am smarter and stronger than I would have guessed.
I stimulate my curiosity. I ask questions and listen closely. I read widely and talk with others about their areas of expertise. I pursue learning and growth. I enjoy increasing my knowledge and picking up useful skills. I volunteer for a challenging assignment at work.
I give a presentation at the annual conference or interview thought leaders in my industry. I go to a party where I do not know most of the guests. I challenge myself to make new contacts and engage in interesting small talk. I think about how I can contribute to the gathering instead of worrying about looking awkward. I visit somewhere new on vacation or explore an unfamiliar section of my neighborhood.
Adventure depends on my mindset rather than the size of my travel budget.
Today, I cultivate a sense of wonder. I seek adventure so I can bring more joy and meaning into my life.
1. How can I stay grounded while leading an adventurous life?
2. How can boredom inspire me to be more adventurous?
3. What is one spontaneous and enriching thing I can do today?
