The travel ROI for mil­len­ni­als

Sun.Star Pampanga - - STORIES! -

Young peo­ple to­day have dif­fer­ent pri­or­i­ties more than just be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship. In fact, ac­cord­ing to re­cent stud­ies, mil­len­ni­als love to travel more than they’re will­ing to ded­i­cate funds to other com­mit­ments and stuff. And we know it’s not a de­bate any­more.

Trav­el­ling is surely one of the best in­vest­ments you can make for your­self.

Thus, travel not just for pure leisure and just to post your tanned skin on In­sta­gram (though we are all guilty of this at some point.) But go to places where you can learn bunch of new things that perk up your taste in art, un­der­stand­ing peo­ple and self con­fi­dence.

They’re not mu­tu­ally ex­clu­sive too--so it’s okay to take time in be­ing picky with places where you can both have heaps of fun and bring a thing or two back home. Some­thing that trans­forms you: ex­pe­ri­ences, friends, am­bi­tions, clar­ity of mind.

Have a mind­set that trav­el­ling isn’t just about re­lax­ing and splurg­ing. It’s about trans­form­ing your­self to be­come a per­ma­nently bet­ter in­di­vid­ual.

In fact, go­ing to a num­ber places made re­al­ize three things:

First: That the vil­lage I thought—was al­ready the best—oc­cupy such as small place in this world--- tiny, neg­li­gi­ble and per­haps even dis­pens­able.

Sec­ond: The Philip­pines is so ho­mo­ge­neous that we do things the same way we want them to be. And that’s fine. No dis­re­spect. But the truth is, there’s al­ways an­other way of debon­ing a fish.

Third: In­stead of brag­ging, trav­el­ling has made me feel that I’m “cos­mic-in­signif­i­cant.” Thus, it in­spired me to be bet­ter.

Thus, I cheer on ev­ery mil­len­nial, es­pe­cially those who are al­ready work­ing to travel as much while you are young, when you have the en­ergy, the time and the op­ti­mism to see it as in­vest­ment to your fu­ture self.

While you have lesser obli­ga­tions in life yet, and just like any other great ven­ture, the ear­lier you spend on it, the more valu­able its re­turn be­come in the fu­ture.
