As I write this, it is the start of a new calendar year. I must admit that I am not one for making new year’s resolutions, as I believe the deep of winter is a time to rest and gather resources. And in that way, gathering resources is what is necessary for planting seeds that you wish to see come to fruition! This is a great time to start making plans for any life changes. Whether you are looking to start a new job or simply desire some gentle change in your life, here are some tips to help you consider where you may wish to place your focus:
Try to Imagine What Your Life Will Be Like: The first tip is to try and imagine what your new start is going to look like. Some people already have an idea while others never thought about it before because they believed it would never happen. This brings us to the next tip.
You Must Believe in the Change:
Without a belief that a change is possible, you will find it very difficult to get to that place. You will also offer up every imaginable excuse as to why it cannot happen and put up mental roadblocks. When you do believe, you will start to look for ways to make the change.
Gather Support from Your Friends and Family:
Having the Support of those around you is going to go a long way in helping you start a new life. When you gain the support of your friends and family, they will help you do what is necessary to get you there.
Perhaps You Need Support with Some Funding:
It is easier than ever to obtain Funding these days. You can hit up your friends and family or you can sponsor fundraisers. Crowdfunding is a great resource for people to get funding for just about any purpose.
If You are Yearning for a Career Change:
Maybe your career isn’t what you hoped and you want a new start. To determine what you want to do, what do you think about when you are distracted? If you continually go to the same idea, this could be a great place to start. Even if it’s a hobby, don’t let that prevent you from pursuing it. The internet has made it quite easy to turn hobbies into businesses.
Try Your Hand at a New Hobby:
Try something you’ve never tried before. Get outside your comfort zone by doing something that you never imagined you would try. For instance, maybe you have always thought it would be cool to play piano or write a song for your kids. The process that you will go through to learn these new skills will give you a new self-identity and can boost your self-esteem.
Expand Your Horizons by Traveling or Moving to a New Country:
This is an extreme way to go about a fresh start. People who do it often never look back. Living in another country where the culture is drastically different from yours is a wonderful way to see how others live and gives you a whole new perspective on life.
Buy/Rent an RV and Travel with Friends or Family:
You can choose to do this in your own country or in any other country depending on the local laws of those countries. If you come up with some kind of theme for your trip, you may find that others will more easily support it with funding, etc., or you could write a book about the theme.
