A few months ago I joined Toastmasters to improve my public speaking skills. Basically to overcome the fear of thinking I am going to die every time have to get on stage or speak in front of a group of people.
So far I haven’t died and my confidence is greatly improving on stage!
For my second speech I wanted to talk about creating more travel in our lives. This is something that I myself and fellow members of our Solo Women Travel Tribe have discussed. It seems to be a common theme for many avid travellers around the world.
I am working on creating a lot of content on this topic but I have started out by sharing two of my steps to generate more travel in our lives.
Check out my speech and these two tips below!
Good evening Mr Toastmaster, fellow Toastmasters and our guests.
Four weeks ago today I launched the Solo Women Travel Tribe. This is a private Facebook group for solo women travellers from all over the globe. It is a place to connect, motivate, inspire and encourage one another. This tribe is a safe place to ask questions, share your love and passion for travel, talk about upcoming trips, share stories and build friendships. My tribe has grown to over 100 members in this short time and we continue to rapidly increase our numbers.
With all this like-minded travel talk one thing has become apparent amongst out group. We all want more travel in our lives. The standard four weeks off each year, and often the income that supports this travel habit of ours is just not enough.
So I am on a mission to educate myself and my tribe on how to get more travel in our lives. And today I am going to share with you two of my tips.
I want to begin by saying that these tips can be applied to any area of your life, any goal that you have and anything you want to create within your own life..
Step one – Get clear on your why?
Why do we want more travel in our lives? What are we wanting to achieve? Why is this important to us. What is driving this want? Ask yourself these questions and establish your own WHY. Why is this important to you.
I want more travel in my life because it creates freedom. It creates new experiences. It makes me feel alive. I appreciate all the things that I have. I learn and I grow.
The more you understand why you want anything in your life, the easier it becomes to get clear and deliberate in creating it.
Get clear on your why.
Step two – Focus your thoughts. Deliberate thinking.
What you focus on in your life you will create, whether you want it or not. This is both conscious and unconscious thought. What you think about becomes your reality.
To give you an idea we have approximately 60,000 thoughts per day – many go them we don’t even realise we are having.
I want to suggest that you take just 15 minutes per day to focus your thoughts and think about creating more travel in your life. Be deliberate. Forget about the how and all the reasons why it can’t or won’t work.
Focus and use thoughts like:
I am creating more travel in my life
I am learning how to create more travel into my life
I am bringing more travel into my life
I love to travel and I will travel more often
I am attracting more travel into my life
All thoughts are powerful magnets that create more of themselves.
This is the law of attraction.
You are a magnet attracting to you what it is you are thinking about. Focus your thoughts to create the future you want.
Create the life you want for yourself deliberately – bring more travel into your life.
You are the creator of your own experience and you attract to yourself what you think about.
Spend this 15 minutes deliberately thinking these thoughts – You can write them out like affirmations. You can sit or lie down and visualise yourself travelling in the places you want to go to. Be deliberate and focus on what it is that you are wanting to create.
So, let’s recap my first two steps on how to create more travel in your life.
Step one is to get clear on your why. Why is this important to you. The more you understand why you want anything in your life, the easier it becomes to get clear and deliberate in creating it.
Step two is to focus your thoughts and spend time thinking on purpose. Your thoughts create your reality. Take 15 minutes everyday to focus on thinking about what you want in your life. You are creating your own experience.
These two steps can be applied to any goal or dream you have.
So to my fellow tribe members and my fellow toast masters I encourage you to get clear on your why and begin thinking on purpose. Make your dreams a reality.
