Just Go For It!


There were a hundred reasons I would tell myself why I shouldn't go for it. It didn't matter what 'it' was I would think of a reason. When it comes to trying something new and stepping out of my little bubble otherwise known as my comfort zone I do not find it easy to go for it.  

For me its because I worry about my existing responsibilities, how it may affect other people or perhaps the consequences that may come from it. I'm an overthinker, a worrier so there are many, many reasons I don't rock the boat.

However, I am about to contradict myself as I am a dreamer, I am always looking for how I can achieve my ambitions and that means I am always pushed out of what I would consider 'the norm'. Nothing I do is normal, not my job, not my interest they all take a whole lot of never knowing what's around the corner - it's kind of become a bit like always jumping off a cliff with my eyes closed - I never quite know where I'll land. Sometimes it might hurt and go wrong but alternatively, I can end up in the best place. 

Recent events have given me no choice. It was time for a fresh start and jumping at new opportunities. So like me will you take the first steps to achieving? Are you planning on writing a book? Travelling the world? Ditching a  toxic relationship you're currently in? It's all about moving forward to a healthier. happier life. It might be none of these things but you know what you desire for the future.

I know that lifestyle bloggers helped me so hopefully, a few of my tips will help you.

Mindset 

Whether you want a new job or maybe even a career change, re-train so you are in the right place. It's all too easy to let fear get in the way and anxiety of the unknown stop you but I have found if I recognise there are unknowns and you can't possibly predict what's around the corner in day to day life anyway. Even if it's been your job for the last 25 years, tomorrow the company could liquidate. Or maybe you think ' Let's wait a year' but what if a year's too late. If you realise this it will allow you too 
take control and therefore feel more comfortable. It's also a good idea to think. Am I happy? If the answer is no then this should also put you in the mindset its time to make a change.

Be Practical

Making big changes isn't just how you feel, you do need to consider the practical elements too. Make small, manageable changes if that works better in your situation especially if it is slightly more risky or your decision will affect others. Financially, look at savings, potential earnings or even a Guarantor loans. There is always an option, be careful in deciding which is the best for you.

Be Strong

I know that I have many ideas and possibilities whizzing around in my head that I get caught up n the moment and some of the things I decide to do are a little bit out there. I did say I was a dreamer aha! People may say its impossible but if you can believe it you can achieve it.
Also remember self care is very important, eat properly, stay hydrated and exercise so the outcome is the best it could be.

Find Encouragement

If this post isn't enough, seek out family and friends who will push you and tell you the impossible is possible. Find things online, success stories, motivational speeches.
Make a mental list of all the excuses that person might have made not to pursue their dreams and then imagine them smashing through them. It’s that kind of mental toughness that you might have to develop too. If you are in a situation that requires you to leave an unhealthy relationship then you might need to call on the help of professional services. Finding friends to encourage you is a great idea in any case. You might even persuade one to come with you on your trip.

Finally...

You don’t need to rush into making decisions, you don’t even need to rush into taking any action but you do need to commit to change if that’s what you ultimately want to do.
Spend some time reading around your subject so you know the decisions you’re making are informed and start putting together that action plan to escape that dreary office cubicle or enroll on that course towards what you feel is your calling.

Make sure you create some time and space to really think about what you’re doing and focus in on creating a good mental attitude that will drive your actions forwards. Be encouraged that other people have done it before you and, like them, you will succeed in whatever it is you’re choosing to do.
Do your research, get your finances in place and get ready to go. It’s time to stop making excuses about why you can’t and start thinking about how you can. It’s time to go for it. After all what have you got to lose?
