“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
– André Gide
This quote from French Nobel Laurate André Gide is often quoted by those looking for strength and encouragement to venture out from their safe zone. And it’s true, if you don’t step out of your front door, if you don’t leave your familiar shore, you won’t ever see the world.
We think of a deeper, less literal meaning for those who wish to be travelers. Full time, modern day Gullivers. Those who wish they could “leave everything behind and travel.” Is that you? What’s holding you back? Knick knacks and what nots? Pets and houseplants? The uncertain shift to Digital Nomad?
Even those brave enough to lose sight of a literal shore, might be hard pressed to muster the courage to embrace change. That’s the ship you must sail into the world.
