10 Reasons why Travelling is Important for Self Growth

aint Augustine has very rightly said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Meaning if you don’t travel you will end up having an extremely narrow vision and in fact incomplete knowledge of what the whole world is like. In the world of globalization and liberalization it is of prime importance to travel across places and enhance your experience in order to reach the stage of self-actualization. Travelling expands your vistas of thinking, gives you a broader perspective of the world and helps in developing your inner self. Travelling will give you hands on experience about handling various situations, understanding cultures, values etc. which would indirectly incorporate various skills in you that would nourish you amorously throughout your life. One of the greatest advantages of traveling is that it triggers self-growth. Remember, be it sales growth, profit growth or asset growth, nothing is possible without self-growth.  Here are top 10 reasons why travelling is important for self-growth.

The moment you decide to crawl out of your comforts and step out into the outside world, you are giving yourself a chance to re-discover yourself and get a better view of your inner-self. When you travel, you are not only exploring a new place, its culture, its diversity, their way of living, thinking etc. but also giving chance to explore yourself. When you are exposed various aspects of life that are different from what you have always thought them to be, it compels you to question the very basic definition of things that you would have otherwise not bothered to look into. You start interrogating yourself and try to comprehend how the same thing can have multiple perspectives in different cultures. It completely changes your thought line and shakes the roots of inner self.
9) Gives you an opportunity to self-introspect

Self-growth can take place only when you give enough time to yourself. Self-introspection is the stepping stone to self-growth.  When you break the walls of monotony in your life and decide to take your life a step forward by choosing to travel rather than sticking to your formal daily routine, you are indeed giving yourself an opportunity to spend some time with yourself. The basic idea of deciding to travel just for the sake of quenching your curiosity about knowing other places and people in itself means that you are acknowledging your inner soul’s needs. It is very obvious that you would spend a lot of time with yourself while travelling because you have allotted this time for yourself. This would definitely give a strong push to the process of self-growth.
8) Helps you discard false beliefs and create new ones

Beliefs are something that we believe to be true and are strongly rooted in us. It is often difficult to detach a person from what he believes. But in order to catalyze and encourage self-growth within you, it is important to keep an open mind to beliefs exiting in other cultures and atmospheres. This would question your certain beliefs that you might be holding for long and suddenly discover them to be irrelevant. You might also end up learning something good from the beliefs that other people in a different place hold for the same thing. It will also give you an insight into your own soul and the psyche of other people.

Reading about different places, people, their language, culture, social behaviour and economy in books and actually experiencing the same on your own are two different things all together. And of course the latter one serves you much better anytime. The more knowledge you gain, the more enlightened you are about the world and the people around you, which means you have a better understanding of the world. Travelling equips you with the right information and knowledge which in long run serves you positively, in evaluating your own growth and also in analysing other things around you.
