10 Signs Your Ready To Travel Full Time!

As told by Zade Grilloni.

Rottnest Island WA

How did I know I was ready you ask?

I simply questioned the life i was living. The first step I took was making the decision to spend my lunch hour at the local library. I found myself with eyes peeled, reading book titles in the Self Development section. The first book I picked up was called The Bliss Experiment: 28 Days to Personal Transformation by Sean Meshorer. Without any assumptions, I was just going to borrow and read it.

I found a cozy bench facing the sunshine. I opened up to the first crisp, clean page. I thought to myself it must’ve been at least 10 years since reading a full book. One chapter down, Sean – a sufferer of chronic pain – shared his exercises and ideas on re-training the mind to see and seize opportunities through bliss.

I was hooked! I became a self-development addict. For the first time in my life I started feeling small hits of natural bliss. With that, brought more confidence and the understanding of self-love. 3 years later I’ve embarked on the road to spiritual enlightenment. Another 10 personal growth books down, I’ve also learnt the importance of self-worth. I’m the happiest, healthiest and most fearless I’ve ever been.

I guess that’s when I finally realized that we were all born into this world to LIVE. Not to educate our selves, work for someone – to help build our boss’ dreams. Then when we’re old and hopefully not already dying, we can then finally retire!!! Ready to live the life of our dreams at 67! (For about 10 years) and then we die! Dramatic I know, but what about our dreams? Can you say you’ve spent everyday doing what sets your heart on fire? If you were to die tomorrow, can you say you’ve truly lived life to the fullest?

Money comes and goes but best believe time waits for no one! So step outside that bubble your living in, re-educate yourself and turn FEAR into INTENTION.

If you agree, here are 10 signs you’re ready to start livin!

1. You’re daydreaming more than you’re actually working.

Ever caught yourself staring into space thinking of your last adventure? All you seem to be speaking about is travel with your colleges and customers? Yep. Your ready.

2. You’re considering seeing a therapist.

You don’t need a therapist. You need to recognize that you hold the key to your thoughts and actions that create your life. Don’t get upset, get motivated and start planning.

3. Your inner voice wont be satisfied until you do it.

This is an important one. Trusting your intuition is crucial! It stops the brain from over-thinking and possibly even role-playing negative outcomes. If you know in your heart that your free-spirited soul won’t be satisfied until you try it, you’re on your way to a beautiful journey.

4. You look for experiences over possessions.

Have you ever gone shopping to cheer yourself up? Thinking you can solve your problems by accumulating items? I used to be that person. I now hesitate buying anything aside the bare necessities because I’ve seen how much I can save! Prioritizing your spending in order to add value to your life is key.

5. You’re inspired by the “Getaway” host.

Shout out to Catriona Rowntree. You go girl! Dream job right thur ladies and gents. Get inspired people! Read some hustle books, watch the movie “Into The Wild” and book some flights.

6. You’re changing. And it feels good.

How exciting is inner growth! Your openness to re-educating yourself is paying off and your feeling more ready than ever to commit to your journey. Things you like will change and you’ll find some souls will resonate with yours while others may not. This is the beauty of GROWTH my friends! The best traveler is one with an open mind.

7. Routine Schmootine.

Groundhog day getting you down?.. Sick of the same ole same ole? You’re craving new adventures that push you out of your comfort zone. You’re not crazy; you’re ready to travel.

8. Your wallpaper is a tropical island paradise.

Every time you check your phone to see how much time you have left at work – you wish it were you in that turquoise water on your screen. Floating in a sea of freedom somewhere in the Bahamas.

9. You’re considering selling your bed.

Have you scraped together all your dollars and cents? Traveling full-time can be cheap but it sure as hell aint free my dudes. You don’t need to sell your bed, but you might have to see Tammy from MyBudget and sort your life out. Weather you’ll be traveling solo or with your partner it’s easy to set up a savings account that you cant touch!

10. None of the above!

Who says you need a damn sign or reason to travel full time… If you have dream – CHASE IT.
