How to Start Fresh

Start freshI received a thank you note from an early adopter of the Reclaim Your Dreams movement.  Here is part of what she said,

Your enthusiasm, encouragement, and ideas have helped me in setting out on my new adventure…Often when I am strategizing about my new gig, I remind myself that I can start fresh… It was your suggestion to step back and consider what I would want to do if there were no constraints… I am not there yet, but I know this is a stepping stone. I’ve never let myself take the long view of my career. Scary, but so good.

Sometimes, we forget that we can start fresh – pursue a bold dream, scratch one book idea and start another, launch a brand new company, commit to a project that we believe in, make something right when we mess up, build new and deep friendships, create a new family of choice. But we can. It is a choice. It may not be easy, what’s your alternative? Beginning anew starts the moment we decide it does.

No matter where you are in your journey, a new beginning is just a question away. Start by listening to yourself – consider what it is you would love to do without constraints. You may be surprised at how clear your answer is.
