What does the word “Adventurous” mean to you? How willing or eager are you to try new things? Very? Or do you find that you shy away from attempting anything new?
While most people think that being adventurous automatically means you are a risk taker, this is not always true. Trying something new doesn’t mean you have to go sky-diving or climb a mountain. There are many ways to be a little more adventurous in your everyday life.
Risk takers, are those that normally do what you might call crazy things. Quite often these people have some type of underlying issue, which makes them act this way. But then, again there are those that just like to seek thrills that are above what we would call normal.
If you are in the mood to be adventurous you can easily just try out something new. This might be eating an exotic food, going to a totally new place or attempting a new sport. Or how about being more adventurous in the bedroom? That counts too.
Trying something new really means just getting outside of your comfort zone. There must be at least one thing that you would like to try, but haven’t yet. Why not work up the courage to do it? You may be amazed at how good you will feel about yourself if you do. Even if you aren’t one hundred percent successful, the fact that you tried is a huge accomplishment. Be proud of yourself!
If you find that life is becoming a little boring, then this is a signal that you need to shake up your routine. This is the perfect opportunity to become adventurous and do something that is different. Take up a new hobby or go on a vacation or just visit a new town on the weekend.
Changing things in your love life is another way to get your partner involved in being adventurous if you are in a relationship that has been routine. I know many people don’t talk about this aspect of being adventurous much. Most people are way too conservative but deep inside they yearn for adventure. So how about starting there? Share one fantasy with your significant other and I assure you that that will be the beginning of your grand adventure. You will add excitement into your lives for sure.
Life doesn’t have to get boring and your daily activities shouldn’t be commonplace. Get into the habit of shaking things up every once in awhile and try new things. Let go of your kitchen duties for one night and verbalize your imagination. For once, just say, “I would like to do that! I will do that starting now!” Plan for a hike. Hire a personal trainer. Sign up to perform stand-up comedy. Make love in the rain. Just do something that is not part of your regular routine and you will be happier for it!
How would you like to improve your adventurous streak? While adventurousity may not be a word, I love the sound of it, don’t you?
As with any personal trait that you are trying to improve using affirmations and quotes can really be beneficial to you. They can even be used to pump yourself up to finally take on that new challenge.
Here’s a couple of affirmations that you might want to use:
I love being adventurous
I love experiencing new things
I love to explore
I will conquer my fears
I am outgoing and headstrong
I look challenges straight in the face
I will focus on the journey as opposed to the destination
I am a brave person
I enjoy danger
I am becoming more adventurous each day
It is quite possible to think yourself into being more adventurous. We were all born with a sense of adventure. How do you think babies discover and learn what the world around them holds? By taking chances and by not being afraid.
Unfortunately as you get older you discover that danger lies within many things and places. This is what often holds you back from facing a challenge head on. It is much easier to stay where it is safe and secure.
Even learning a new skill can help you become more adventurous. Why not learn a new language, which will help you travel to a new country? Learn how to cook foods of a different culture.
Improving your adventurous streak doesn’t mean you have to put yourself in harm’s way. It just means allowing yourself the freedom to experience new things such as foods, cultures, new sports, practically anything that you would love to do.
Your ultimate goal may be to do an extreme sport just once in your life. Life is really too short and you never know when something may strike you down without warning.
Learning to improve how you view the world of adventure can open up a realm of possibilities for you. You could learn new skills, meet new people or be presented with unforeseen opportunities.
So if your lack of adventurousity is getting you down. Give it a good slap by taking action and changing the way you view adventure. Repeat your affirmations several times each day until you start truly believing in yourself. Nobody but you can change the way you think!
Are you still single and having trouble finding someone to have a relationship with? If so you might want to look at how much sex appeal you are projecting. Recent research has shown that people who are seen as adventurous are more appealing and desirable to the opposite sex.
If you were to ask a group of people what being adventurous meant to them, you would end up with a ton of different answers. No two would be the safe. Some people view being adventurous as being dangerous and ready to go to extremes. Others think it means doing something that you have never tried before.
So how does being adventurous add or change your appeal?
It is part of human nature to love watching things that are seen as thrilling, exciting and dangerous. By watching these events you can easily imagine yourself taking part, but without putting yourself in harm’s way.
So if you meet a person who you think does adventurous things you are going to be immediately drawn to them. You love watching them take risks such as going sky-diving or even competing in a dance competition. Deep down you would love to do the same, but just don’t have the courage to do them.
The adventurous person will enjoy the companionship and encouragement from another person. This often fuels their drive and spirit to be even more adventurous.
Another concept is of two adventurous people connecting with each other. This can build a strong, fun relationship. You both enjoy being daring and are not afraid to jump into something head first. Neither one of you worries about the dangers because you are fueled by each other’s projected energy. You are just having fun living in the present and enjoying every possible moment. My boyfriend and I really connected and bonded this way. We often say to each other that “this was the first time I’ve ever experienced anything like this.”
If you are looking to meet someone new then getting out of your comfort zone and taking on new challenges the way to do this. You could join a biking club, hiking club, dance club, or go mountain climbing.
By surrounding yourself with adventurous people, you are more likely to unlock your own adventurous spirit. As you see people fulfill their dreams and take on new challenges, you will be tempted to do the same.
So, if you are having trouble finding a date then why not let a little adventure into your life and see where it leads you?
