I felt like they both needed a subsequent article so that the reader would be better able to ‘connect the dots’ and see the big picture.
This post is basically an expansion of those ideas, with regard to creating a new beginning in life.
To start off, there are only two reasons anyone would desire a new beginning:
- Past guilt
- A desire to move on.
Well, think about it.
If everything is fine just the way it is, there is no reason to change anything.
On the contrary, there is an incentive to keep things just the way they are…
So, regardless of whether its a case of past guilt or some desire to move on in life, what needs to be done to create a new beginning is pretty much the same thing.
TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE & YOURSELF.
There is no other way to go about it.
In more simple terms, what it means is that you MUST change yourself and your life completely.
Consider this as your metamorphosis, similar to the one where a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.
It’s the only way that this will work. Everything else relies on quick fixes and feel good mind tricks, none of which are effective in the long run.
THE ONLY WAY TO A NEW BEGINNING IS TO TRANSFORM YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE.
Why is this the case and how does it work?
It is because you have a tendency to associate yourself with whatever it is that you have or are in life.
When you finally craft a new identity for yourself and change your life, you will begin to associate yourself with them and not what defined you earlier.
In addition to this, you’ll become so engrossed with your new life that your old world will fade away into the background and no longer bother you. Even if it DOES come to your mind, you’ll tend to think of it as part of some bygone era and it won’t ‘trigger’ you the way it once did.
Let me emphasize on that:
WHEN YOU CRAFT A NEW IDENTITY FOR YOURSELF BY CHANGING YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL ALMOST LITERALLY FORGET YOUR PAST AND WHEN YOU DO REMEMBER IT, YOU WILL BE BARELY BOTHERED BY IT.
I guess that this would serve as an intro for what is to come.
There is a lot that needs to be done, so this topic will probably run into several parts.
Stay tuned! 😀
