# 5 Mindset Shifts that occur when you adopt a traveler mindset

By Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken, founder Matrix-Q Travelers Club

For those who have been living abroad and traveling, whether as an ex-pat, a digital nomad, a purpose-driven volunteer, or a travel-preneur, the five mindset shifts I'm about to share will resonate deeply. But don't worry if you haven't had the chance to embark on such adventures just yet. This article brings great news for you too! Even if you haven't experienced the joys of traveling or living abroad as a lifestyle, these mindset shifts can still have a profound impact on your life. So, let's dive in and explore the transformative power of adopting a traveler mindset!

## 1. From stagnation = stability to change = movement

In the face of challenging circumstances, where external forces beyond your control are constantly shifting, it's important to recognize that you cannot control everything. Instead of being controlled by these changes, embrace a mindset that sees change as an opportunity for growth and progress. By making change your own and continuously moving forward, you can overcome feelings of instability, vulnerability, and lack of control.

## 2. From habits = daily life to curiosity = learning

Take a moment to reflect on your current life. How much of it is shaped by repetitive activities in familiar settings? Embracing the traveler mindset means letting go of the comfort of routine and embracing the excitement of curiosity. Expand your horizons by seeking out new knowledge, exploring different cultures, and embracing the unknown. By trading habits for curiosity, you open yourself up to a world of learning and evolution.

## 3. From friends and community to travel-friends and travel-community

As you embark on a life of living abroad and traveling, you come to realize that time is a precious gift. The people you meet along your journey may come and go, and you may never cross paths with them again. This realization instills in you a deep appreciation for every individual you encounter and the communities you become a part of. Instead of taking relationships and social circles for granted, you cherish every moment and embrace the kindness, appreciation, care, love, and attention that strangers, both fellow travelers and locals, extend to you.

## 4. From "I will do it tomorrow" to "I am acting now"

Embrace the power of taking action in the present moment. Instead of postponing your dreams and aspirations, take action today. Embrace the mindset of a traveler who seizes the present moment and creates a life filled with purpose, growth, and fulfillment. By prioritizing what truly matters and aligning your actions with your vision, you can create a life that is rich in meaning and joy.

## 5. From "I follow the plan" to "I follow the plan" with a traveler mindset

The plan itself becomes a pathway to abundance, a catalyst for transformation that unfolds for you, enabling you to grow and evolve. By adopting a traveler mindset, you understand that the plan is not set in stone but rather a flexible guide that can be adapted and molded to fit your unique journey. Embrace change as an opportunity for growth and wealth. Follow the plan, not with rigidity, but with a sense of openness and adaptability. Allow the unfolding of your journey to reveal the treasures that await you.
