If you’ve recently experienced something disheartening or traumatic in your life, just the thought of starting over can seem like too much and maybe you’ve heard someone say, “you can’t run from your problems.”
According to Psychology Today, this can’t be further from the truth as there is immense power to be found when you start over and allow yourself a new beginning.
1. Your Outlook Is Everything
You’ve probably been told that your outlook on life is all that matters in success, and this is true. If you think everything is dark and dismal and headed for disaster, it likely will.
When you commit yourself to start over or to begin again, you will do so by generating a positive outlook, or sense of optimism, at the thought.
This optimism will help propel you forward and likely make your future much brighter no matter what your journey may be.
2. Change Creates Power
Humans often naturally try to avoid change. But although you may think a change that has occurred isn’t a good thing, the human race thrives on the aspect of change.
A new beginning is a special type of change.
It is a change where you are committed to making something different about the future.
Of course, only you know what that truly is, which makes this change a good thing; it gives you back the feeling of power over your life.
The power which you may have felt like you recently lost due to your trauma.
Not only that but making the covenant with yourself to move towards a new start is a
power move that will lead you to feel confident and ready to conquer your new world.
3. The Sky Is The Limit
When you experience trauma, you are often knocked off the path from your last journey.
You may be feeling a bit lost.
Besides a lack of optimism, you may feel like your dreams are now far from attainable.
Help quell these feelings by thinking about what a new beginning would look like for you.
Whatever may have happened in your life, a new beginning is just what you need.
Not only will starting over restore your optimism and power over your life, but it will also remind you where you are going and bring you back to the track of success.
