… without me ever leaving the house! So how is it possibly true that traveling changed my life and I didn’t go anywhere?
Don’t get me wrong, I love taking trips, traveling the world, seeing magnificent places, and exploring other cultures. This is how traveling the world changed my life for the better, but the one trip I never anticipated would be the most rewarding, I did from home!
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”Marcel Proust
Is she talking about travel from home via television? To be honest, I have recently become a dedicated fan of the Netflix series, Restaurants on the Edge. I think it is everything a television show should be, and a beautiful way to travel vicariously while experiencing change that impacts lives for the better.
The show hosts take us on a beautiful journey. They take time to understand the unique wonder of the individual places they feature. Then, they take something that’s not so wonderful, in some cases, just short of collapse, and turn it into something beautiful. I get wrapped up in the show, joyous as the people on the show celebrate the new place’s uniqueness and life-changing results. With them, I quietly celebrate the pride, love and joy that comes from uncovering possibilities.
I love how the hosts are respectful of the cultures they visit. I think they set the example of how traveling, with a sense of purpose and community, can change lives. I find it extremely rewarding to watch how they listen to the owners and really HEAR their concerns. Now there’s a habit many of us could adopt. The hosts skillfully hone in on the owners’ hopes and dreams. Then, like magic, they help those hopes and dreams come to life. One of the first steps they take is to help the owners release the mental cement that holds them back..
How traveling changed my life without having to leave home
Watching the show reminds me of the experiences I’ve observed and lived through the Master Key Experience. Back when I first joined the course, I saw myself as one of those “failing” restaurants. I had a LOT of cement between me and trusting people to help me get where I wanted to go. Now, years later, I’m even more grateful. As I look back, I see how they took me even further than I originally thought I could go!
The Master Key Experience offers “guides”, like the host team on the show, that are trained and certified to work effectively and respectfully with any of the members. Your hopes and dreams are sacred and these people honor that in a way I’ve not seen or experienced before. Most surprising, they really care that you achieve them! As a student, I had regular access to the actual people, a true hands-on experience.
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”Jennifer Lee
Gently prodding, pointing out the obvious (that I was on my own biggest obstacle), my guides encouraged me, helped me, gave me the space I needed, fully supported me until I began to create a life that was MEASURABLY happier. I learned to transpose my life into a life of freedom, unlike I ever knew previously. Instead of just talking about what I want, I GOT what I wanted, and continue to do so. They nudged me onto the greatest travel adventure of all, my own personal heroine’s journey. And I’m still going… and growing, traveling on the journey and changing my life.
But of course, I had to do the work. And I had to sacrifice — but not in terms of money! This course is unbelievably affordable for all the gifts you receive. The hard sacrifice was that I had to sacrifice old habits, and knock cement blocks out of my way that I created. Ouch, now that’s where the real pain lies!
So now, I anticipate traveling to change my life even more… another incredible journey. I’ve been invited to become staff, and to serve as a guide to help others. So I get to push myself to do more for others like I’ve never done before. I can’t wait! What a great way to travel through life, and make change in my life as I help others change theirs too.
