5 Ways to Embrace Your Adventurous Side

It’s fair to say that most of us need a little more excitement in our lives. We all crave adventure and that can mean anything from dreaming about being the next Indiana Jones to wishing that we could just be a little more spontaneous with our decisions.

The problem is that thinking and doing are two very different things and it’s easier to sit back and let life pass us by than to get out there and start creating some great memories that will last us a lifetime.

With that in mind here are 5 ways in which we can start embracing our adventurous side…

  1. 1.     Do something that terrifies you

When was the last time that you were truly terrified? I’m not referring to those horrible situations that no one wants to be involved in, but situations where you are way outside of your comfort zone.

Do you remember the last time you asked someone out on a date? I’m guessing you were terrified but regardless of what the outcome was, I’m willing to bet you felt great afterwards. This is what scary situations do – they enable growth and they toughen you up for future occasions where you may need to leave your comfort zone behind.

Seek out the terrifying and more often than not, your risk taking will be rewarded with success.

  1. 2.     Become a ‘yes’ person

The quickest way to change your life for the better is to totally ignore the word ‘no’.

Pretend it doesn’t exist – leave it behind – throw it away. Whatever works for you, just refuse to say it.

The next time someone invites you for a night out, regardless of what mood you are in – do it. Say yes, because you never know what could happen. You might meet your future partner or get involved in something that would make a great plot for the next ‘Hangover’ movie.

Adventure, excitement and great memories always start with a ‘yes’.

  1. 3.     Embrace the present moment

Do you let life pass you by because you are always looking too far into the future?

We are all guilty of this on occasion and it is s very difficult habit to get out of. The future always looks more appealing than the present because we get to dream about a life that currently eludes us.

‘Next year I will definitely go travelling’

‘One day I will quit my job’

‘I’m up for that bungee jump, but not quite yet’

Don’t wait for a time that may never come – get out there and do what you want to do, RIGHT NOW.

  1. 4.     Do something that you have never done before

Following on from the above – if you’ve done what you’ve always done, then you’ll get what you’ve always got.

This phrase is so true it’s frightening. Living a life that is boring and bland will just encourage decision making that will follow on from what you’re currently doing.

Once in a while do something totally out of character. Spontaneously visit another country or buy an item of clothing that you have never worn before. Get a brand new hairstyle or get that tattoo you’ve been thinking about for the last 10 years.

Instead of trying to do what is easy, focus on what you can do that is better, that is different.

  1. 5.     Relive your greatest moments

Get a pen and paper, or open up a text document and write down the 3 most exciting things you have ever done.

For each one, close your eyes and try to remember the situation in your mind as vividly as possible. Try to imagine the sights, the sounds, even the smells. Focus on how you felt inside – were there butterflies in your stomach? How did you react emotionally?

After you have done that write down 3 new things that you could do to recreate those situations.

You’ve done similar things before so there is no reason why you cannot do more of the same. A truly adventurous person will dedicate their life to reproducing those emotions again and again.
