I have met many an armchair traveler through the years, and the #1 reason they remain wistfully seated in their armchairs is because they have not made travel a priority.
The most important step in turning your dream trip into a reality is setting a hard and fast deadline.
This deadline should be in the next 6 to 18 months.
And it should be non-negotiable.
So, for instance, if you want to visit Paris, you should say to yourself, out loud and with unflinching resolve:
“Hell or high water, I’m going to Paris by end of this year!”
Or, if you don’t yet know where you want to go, you could say:
“Hell or high water, I’m going overseas before my birthday next year!”
Then you can start planning and budgeting accordingly.
