Most of us get so caught in the grayness of our daily life and because of that we never really explore the endless possibilities life has to offer. And believe me, life have so much to offer – to those who are willing to experience different things in life. But there are certain experiences everyone needs to experience in their lives which will make them evolve as a person. Here, in The Trendigo we are going to talk about 11 things every man needs to experience before dying.
1. Living In A Strange Country

Setting off on new paths that lead you to unknown, and utterly strange locations where nobody knows you is life changing and makes you evolve as a person. Figuring out life, all alone, is something not everyone gets the opportunity to experience in their life. Do it while you can, and you will have the chance to discover your true self.
2. A Heartbreak
Heartbreaks may be devastating and may sound to you as something dreadful to experience, but heartbreaks always teach you a thing or two. You must remember only that life goes on, and there’s no better way of realising this than getting your heart crushed into pieces. I know it sounds cruel but this is life.
3. A Trip All By Yourself
Pack your luggage and head out on a journey without any company or without the surety of having someone around to help you out or show you around the place you are headed to. The idea may seem scary, but trust us on this one, you’ll discover a new side of your personality by exiting your comfort zone!
4. Getting Drunk until you black out
It is good to be a responsible drinker, or you abstain from alcohol, it’s not even necessary to drink until you black out as said above, but every once in a while, you should loosen up! Drunken nights where you do things you don’t remember or usually do on the next day always make for great stories or at least to a good hangover but whatever. Not being your usual, and being totally out of control is something worth experiencing – at least once in life!
5. Go on a Road Trip with your friends
At least one road trip before you hit 30 is a must in your “To Do List”. It is a completely different experience from the regular destination vacations you’ve been doing your entire life. So,don’t wait for too long, and hop into your car with your friends and set out on a life-altering journey!
6. Live All by Yourself
Nothing in this life makes you wiser than being completely on your own. Dependenting only of your self is something that can mentally grow you up in a ways you couldn’t even imagine. While you’re young, move out, even only for a while and live on your own. It’ll make a man out of you.
7. Being The Best At What You Do – PRO mode activated
We’re all average in most things we do. At least once in your life, feel the high of being ‘the best one’, even if only for a moment. Take up a job you really, really love and conquer the world. No matter how small the skill may be, it will make you feel like “on top of the world”.
Yes,after the being the best in something experiencing the bitterness of failing at least once can teach you a thing or two. Failure can be as life changing, as success – probably even more. Don’t be afraid to lose or fail at something. Failure will only make you stronger and as many stated before us ” what doesn’t kill you make you stronger” . Until you know failure, you won’t know how to appreciate success. Those who hit the bottom and make their way up becomes legends.
9. Being Fearless
Every man needs to know how liberating it is to make his own rules instead of mindlessly conforming to conventions. For once in your life, be who you really are, free from all obligations and social norms – be fearless. Say what you mean, do what you feel like. At least once, you should know what it feels like not having any fears at all.
10. Completely In Touch With Nature
Spend some time in a totally natural surrounding, with no traces of technology or urban life. Test yourself out one day in the woods and see if you can survive. Look around, observe. Take a plunge into the vast greens of the forest, deep azures of the sea, endless skies and the thrill and beauty of standing on mountain top. Not only will you realize how tiny you are in the whole universe, you will discover your soul!
11. Conquering Your Fear
Every one needs to know fear, and more importantly, what it feels like to conquer it. You must do at least one thing that scares you out of your wits and see yourself emerging stronger. Conquer your fear. Evolve.
