“Live a life with no regret” Deri Llewellyn Davies
That was a quote I shared on my talk the other day to a coaching meeting – some coaches, some coachees or in similar roles; entitle “It’s never too late…” I wanted to use my travel dream now lived as the content and inspiration for people to live their dreams, to try for what they want no matter how late in life it might be! If I can you can too was the message. I have not only lived my dream but it changed me for the better; I gained from it. Another quote states that “Travel is the only thing you spend on that makes you richer” – that’s for sure!
As it was a short presentation of just 15 minutes along with four other coaches presenting in a more formal way and regular coaching insights, I did have the audience in stitches with stories, pictures and comments. At least it seemed like that and not at me! Ah well, even so, it was good to get people laughing, enjoying themselves and seeing a new perspective, new stimulants to beliefs and expectations!
Two young women came over after and excitedly shared they too wanted to travel alone but …ooh could I? Yes, I said, a resounding Yes you should go! I invited them both to link with me on social media, to ask questions and read my blog, and a couple of others too took the link for the blog and my card. An older woman shared she had travelled for three months, and what made the presentation good was my passion and enthusiasm! Again, how great is that! It was a comment I got over an over again whilst travelling – but why not? I was out in a wonderful world, doing things I hadn’t even imagined, seeing things with my own eyes, being wowed and awed every day and meeting people, experiencing good and bad, smiles and tears, history and horror sometimes but it was a great mix and inspiring in itself!
So I achieved that goal too, inspiring people to try, to believe and to maybe go for their dreams too! I do hope to get the change to motivate them to try, and maybe the post on nomadicmatt.com will also raise the momentum for them all!
As it was brief I had to cover a lot – diverse photos, the countries I visited, the things I did and the things I brought back…
