When we say it is new, we always want it. Why? because it’s unused. You’re the first person who will use it. We commonly refer it to material things. But when we say it is a new life, we stop for a while and think about it. It is a very personal and a serious matter.
New life may have so many connotations or impressions. Some may say new life is having a new home or property; new car and new friends. And that’s nearing to a new lifestyle. What can we see with our own two eyes may mean new life because of the externality. We cannot see vividly what is inside of it.
A new life should start from our heart and mind. It’s about mindset, willingness to change and decision making.
What is your heart telling you? Are you bored when you wake up in the morning and remember that nothing has changed in your life? Did you dream one day in your life you may go back to your past, correct all your mistakes and start a new plan in your life? I believe everyone pondered on this once in a while.
Hear what your heart desires are the first step to mindset. Be ready with your journey. Mind-setting is to gather the pros and cons of your plan. The following are some questions that may guide you in your planning:
- What will be the consequence if I do this (state your plan)?
- How may it affect others if do this (state your plan)?
- How does it affect mine?
- What could be the possible things do to if I (state your plan)?
- Could this plan give me a peace of mind?
The last question is powerful after you gather all the pros and cons of your plans. If you’re in doubt and you think this can’t give you peace of mind. Trash it.
Willingness to Change
A person who doesn’t have the guts or willingness to change is like an old pot that was covered with mud. You could not use the pot because the dirt was filled inside out. The pot must be cleaned first before it can be usable. As long as the pot can’t be touch, it will remain as a dirty old pot forever. The same thing as a person who doesn’t have the willingness to change. He is like the old dirty pot. He couldn’t be touch and change because he is unwilling to be cleaned.
“Nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed your Life” Life Quotes
This is the crucial moment of your stepping stone to start a new life. Will you proceed or not? Are you ready or not? Do you want to be cleaned like the pot?
You already set your mind by preparing all the pros and cons, you think about changes and now you need to decide. If you don’t decide now to get started, you’ll not know how the opportunity awaits you. Why I quoted the word “opportunity”? It is because time is connected to change. Our world is fast-changing, we don’t see a majority of people would like to live in stone age. Look how our smartphones, computers and internet industry evolved from technology. They’re amazing!
Decide now to start a new life because if you have a new life, you ‘ll have a new heart to change for the better.
“Everyone has to make their own decisions. I still believe in that. You just have to be able to accept the consequences without complaining.” Grace Jones
” If we don’t make tough decisions today our children are going to have to make much, much tougher decisions tomorrow.” Paul Ryan
To stop smoking, gambling, drinking, learning to love and forgive others may be well considered as having a new life. Behind this achievement, it all started with a will and decision, and the willingness to change that comes from our heart. It’s a new heart.
A new heart is a change of life. People have their own way of transforming their lives for a change. If we want something that is new and fresh, it could be a new way of life because it’s worth it.
“There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.”Henry Ford
