Things happen. Sometimes, life will force you to start over
from scratch. Instead of freaking out, you can view the
experience as something that will help you become the person you are destined to be. It’s another chance for you to be happy. This video will go over 7 things to help you
start over again in life and make the process easier. 1. Realize people won’t care as much as you
think. One of the biggest reasons why some people
are afraid of starting over to live a better life is because of other people’s opinions. When you start over in life, you will be leaving
your comfort zone. You might worry about what your friends and
family think about you starting over. The truth is that most people don’t care
that much about you. Most people will be thinking about themselves
and their own shortcomings instead of judging you. If you can stop worrying about what other
people think, starting over again will feel a lot easier.
2. Accept the past and let go of it. It’s hard to start over again if you are
fixated on the past. Whatever happened back then happened already. You can’t change what happened in the past
and you should focus on the future instead. You need to make the decision to let go since
things don’t happen on their own. Acceptance isn’t as hard as you think since
it means that you acknowledge it has happened and you are ready to move on from it. Focus your energy on creating your dream life
instead of worrying about the past and starting over again will feel better. 3. Start with the end goal in mind.
When you are starting over, you need to know
what to change and what kind of new life you want to create. Without the end goal in mind, you will be
lost. Think of what you want in your new life and
find out which parts you need to change in your old life to get where you want. Maybe you are starting over and switching
careers so you need to learn the skills needed to make the switch. With the end goal in mind, you can have a
plan to get there. 4. Detach yourself from the outcome. This point might not make sense especially
since the previous tip was to start with the end goal in mind but keep watching.
Sometimes we can’t get what we want. When you focus only on trying to succeed,
it won’t be sustainable and it doesn’t work at the highest level. If you only focus on the result, you will
get lost on the way and lose sight of the underlying mission. Take Gary Vaynerchuk for example. One of his goals is to buy the New York Jets. He doesn’t care much about the outcome but
he enjoys the journey so much and it makes him happy. Learn to let go of your ideas on what is supposed
to happen because things don’t always go your way. Focusing on the journey instead of the outcome
will make you happier and help make starting over again easier.
5. Let go of your limiting beliefs and excuses. Your limiting beliefs will stop you from taking
the action you need. To get rid of your limitations, you have to
take a step back and see what they are. Limitations are things that keep you trapped
in a loop. They define the quality of your life. Of course, some limiting beliefs are true
and they do have a positive impact on your life. For example, a 30 year old man who hasn’t
played basketball before will have a belief that he won’t get into the NBA. This is true and the belief tells him that
he shouldn’t spend his time trying to get good at basketball unless it’s a hobby he
enjoys. However, most of our limiting beliefs are
false and you should ask yourself where did it come from and if it is true. After that, you can replace that belief with
something not limiting. If you want to start over and improve your
life, you have to get rid of those limiting beliefs. 6. Trust your intuition.
When you start over, there’s so many things
you can do. Maybe you should follow your passion or maybe
you should do something safe and secure like what a lot of people in society do. Instead of doing what the voices around you
say, you need to trust your gut. Do what you want to do to create the life
you want. Trust yourself because you know more than
you think you do. 7. Prepare for failure. When you are starting over and creating a
new life, there will be times where you will fail.
You might want to revert to your old life
since your new plan isn’t working but you want to avoid that. You want to make a plan for failure so you
don’t revert back to your old life. Everyone will have different ways to deal
with this but I recommend practicing gratitude. If you can be more grateful for your new life
and new opportunity, you will be less likely to revert back. Starting over in life can be scary but it
doesn’t have to be.
Pick a few of the tips mentioned above and
follow them. Starting over is a great opportunity to be
someone better, even if it doesn’t feel that way at the moment. Did you ever have to start over in life? Leave a comment below and check out the video
