Did you ever dream of working while tanning your skin on white-sand beaches, experiencing crazy adventures in a completely unknown territory and starting life from scratch in a foreign country?
Well, turns out that’s not such an “impossible” fantasy. Now you can do precisely that – and possibly much more, if you are up to it.
All you have to do is say “yes”.
One of the easiest (and most fulfilling ways) to travel the world is by working in the foreign countries you want to visit. Granted, the experience of working in a foreign country will not be the same as visiting it as a tourist. However, it is often much more fulfilling, complex and interesting than just exploring the usual tourist routes.
Packing all your life in a suitcase and starting over in a new country is not for the faint of heart – but there are enormous advantages for those willing to take the plunge. Here are a couple of them (listed in a random order)…
Reason #1 To Work Abroad – A New Chance To Start Over
Let’s face it – we all day-dream from time to time of packing our belongings, getting a one-way plane ticket and flying as far as possible to make a new beginning in our lives.
Although few people would act on such impulses, those who do never regret doing it. That’s because such a bold and radical experience can deeply enrich your life with new experiences, new paradigms of seeing the world and new references.
Most people who start working in a foreign country and want a new life do so because they feel that the life which was “meant” for them back home was limiting and downright boring at times. Depending on your personality, you might feel the same – or fear change. It all depends on what you want in life.
However, if you want to start anew, working in a foreign country is a great way to do so.
Reason #2 To Work Abroad – Learning A New Language
Most people know only their native language and English. Although this is the basis of success in the modern world, the more languages you know, the smarter you are.
There are even scientific studies out there which prove that learning a new language rewires the whole brain and makes you think “outside the box” in different ways. Plus, you can experience a country in a completely different way when you speak the local language – you can befriend the locals, act like one and even understand more subtleties from their culture.
Learning a new language is challenging but it is not a “must” for working in a foreign country. However, you can pick it up much more easily and faster while working there.
Reason #3 To Work Abroad – Experiencing A New Culture
The more we stay in one place, the more we tend to think that the whole world is the same way. The truth, however, is completely different.
Every country, every city, even every village has its own culture and unique ways of experiencing life. Reading books, watching movies and talking to people grants us access to new ways of experiencing life – but the most intense and enriching way to do so is by living a new culture, by first-hand experience.
You can do so by moving to a foreign country and working there, while immersing yourself in the local culture. This is very enlightening in ways you cannot even imagine, as people live life in much more different ways than how we perceive them.
Reason #4 To Work Abroad – Becoming More Adaptable
Working abroad in a new culture, with their own language and in a new environment is challenging at first (especially for the first month). However, this will make you become very adaptable to change.
Experiencing a new environment means adapting to a whole new set of variables which we didn’t even know existed previously. This means that your brain goes into “hyper-adaptive” mode, transforming you into a very flexible person.
Exercising your mental and emotional “flexibility muscles” will mean that you will become like a chameleon which learns to blend in quickly with the environment while also retaining its own unique qualities. This is a skill which can be very valuable in life.
Reason #5 To Work Abroad – Making New Friends
“Rebooting” your social circle can be a very liberating thing. Sticking to old friendships from high-school or college just because you had some experiences together can be very limiting. Besides, remember that saying that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with? Well, it’s true.
There’s no better way of making new friends which have the same interests as you like. Working abroad will force you to make new friends, get clear and who you want to meet (and who to avoid) and what sort of relationships you want in your life. It’s much harder to gain that clarity while sitting on your home couch and watching the news.
