How to Start a Brand-New Chapter at Any Age

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. – George Bernard Shaw

Read an article posted at Inc. with the above title.

That gets me thinking.

It is obvious that one will encounter failures at some stages in their lives. It is also obvious that some will get back on their feet (like phoenix rises from ashes)  and some will fade into darkness of obscurity.

What would one do when one gets stuck? The obvious answer would be to get unstuck.

At any stage of life, do an audit. A life audit. What are you currently doing? What is your life goal? How far away are you from your goals? Be honest and objective in answering these.

Give yourself the permission to forgive, and move on. It doesn’t help you to keep on hanging to the past. The past is not indicative of your future. Your past may lead you to your present. But you have the power to change your future. if you would take actions in your present.

Know what needs to change, and just put in the freaking hard work. You need to know which direction you need to take, and how fast you need to travel. Nothing substitute the work and effort you put in. But you can’t just blindly run without knowing where you are heading to.

Know that it is never too late to start all over again. If you are to start today. You may have wasted decades of your life, please don’t waste any more days. Live your life worth remembering and celebrating for.

What would you do today?
