“I am too broke to travel”…

and why that is the worst excuse…

The majority of people blame money or lack thereof for not going to the places they dream about.

Money comes and goes and even the most lavish vacation is attainable (though it might take more time to reach). While money is important and necessary, it’s not hard to attract. The real struggle is keeping it, and thinking of your long-term desires rather than your short-term satisfaction (do you really need that coffee every day?).

Here are links to some savvy creative solutions to traveling when you’re broke.

I want you all to reach your goals and I believe you can! So listen closely:


“I’m too broke to…” is the same as saying “I don’t really prioritize…”

What works for me:

Envision what you really want.

On paper, make a list of everything you want (beautiful shoes, a yacht, oat-milk latte, an evening out with friends, traveling to France this summer…)

Note next to each item the accessibility depending on things like money and time

( Coffee is easily accessible, a yacht takes more time to get)

Go over the list and organize everything from most desired to least.

Now that your goals are clear in your head, keep that awareness with every purchase you make (are you moving closer to your goals? is this really something you need?)

Reduce mindless spending to find more value in everything you spend money on, because every $ spent on coffee is a $ not spent on vacation.
