Here are four ways you can add adventure starting today.

1. Do something new

Do something that is new to you. This could be trying a new activity, meeting new people, or going somewhere you have never been before. Will it be easy? Maybe, maybe not. Will it be rewarding? Absolutely.

2. Pursue an interest

Pick out something that you have always wanted to try, and start today! What are you waiting for?

3. Make mistakes as often as possible.

This is a clear indicator that you are seeking opportunities.

4. Let go of what is holding you back.
