Escaping your comfort zone is not always do something you thing you wouldn’t do before because you fear it. One of my 2018 goals’ is to move to Dubai, UAE. Be sure I will blog and vlog when I’ll be there and you will see it. I have already done some step like starting create my UAE company to get my visa.
So why I have decided to get outta Belgium and jump into an other country, on an other continent? To get outside of my comfort zone. First I will be forced to talk only in english for daily operation.
But what moving abroad will change for your life? Let’s see 4 reasons that can inspire and motivate you to do the same.
1. You will escape the current norm
Changing your routine is maybe quite harder when you still live where you live now. Moving in an other city or better in an other country will be a daily challenge for even the simpliest task like grocery or taking a coffee. It will be exciting.
You’ll escape from your current routine and your comfort zone and it’s better than a 2-week holiday.
2. You will learn a new language
Like I told you in intro. One of the reason I’ve decided to move to Dubai is to improve my english skill.
If you have trouble learning a new language? It’s probably the best way to learn the language you target. Get in a total immersion daily will help you. You will also learn a new culture.
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela
3. You will see things from a new perspective
If you feel stuck in life, moving to a new country will be an excellent way to get a new perspective on the things that really matter. You will soon realize that making new friends, learning more about a different culture and exploring a new part of the world will help you expand your mind more than material things ever could.
4. You will boost your confidence levels
I’m shy. Yes, it’s true even if I have my own Youtube channel and my IGTV channel, I’m still shy in some way. It’s also a reason I’ve decided to move. My family and friend will not be there to help me, I’ll be on my own.
You could also do it and boost your confiedence, make new friends, new connection. It will give you the energy to start what you wanted to do before moving. New experiences and tasks will push you to learn how to manage everything once again and even learn a new way of tackling situations or issues. You will eventually reach a new level of self-reliance and assurance.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain
Moving abroad will indeed prove to be both a challenge and a development opportunity. You will get the chance to know more about a new culture but also become happier and more fulfilled.
Before making the decision to move away from your current country though, make sure to consider the practical implications. You may need to save up to cover shipping costs as well as any new purchases you will be making once you arrive to the new place. In addition, you would also need to extensively research the country and area you would like to move to.
Consider your options and decide whether you are ready for such a transformative experience because it doesn’t just happen, it needs planning and action.
Become the master of your own life now.
