Every day doesn’t have to be a treasure hunt – but why not choose to view the world a bit more adventurously, and find out what happens?
1. Take chances.
Ultimately life doesn’t happen to us – we choose and create the life we want to live. Allow the courageous voice inside to be your guide and motivator. Wake up and risk something each day – seek and discover those uncharted territories on the treasure map of life.
“All serious daring starts from within.” –Eudora Welty
2. Do things differently.
Familiar surroundings give us structure and support – but they can also sedate our dreams and passions if we don’t change scenery once in a while. Think of yourself as a passer-by of this world, and let your inner wanderer be free to wander.
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal.” –Paulo Coelho
3. Risk changing who you are.
Any truly meaningful transformation begins with a letting go of the self – sometimes we have to give up who we think we are before we can flourish in new environments, life paths and relationships.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” –Lao Tzu
4. Enjoy every step of the journey.
The real adventure in life consists of living every moment with intention and purpose, no matter where you are or whom you are with. And if you haven’t found a purpose yet, make finding one your purpose!
“I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.” –Joseph Campbell
