Changing one's life takes a lot of effort, so, choose one thing to start with, begin small and be prepared for failure, adjust and try again. By choosing one thing to start you will get better chances to commit and succeed without feeling overwhelmed. Along the way, you might even discover that your initial goal is not, after all, well adjusted for you. Starting a new venture is not always easy and often it is not what people expect. Failure provides opportunities for growth, learning, and getting better at what you do. If you can, seek support from loved ones to help during this process. Feeling heard, discussing ideas, or even obtaining others' visions can be precious and enlightening. To keep yourself strong, a useful instrument is to have a gratitude journal. During times of change, it can be tough to see the silver lining but, by using this tool you will have a kind reminder of the good things that happen in your life, or achievements you made, no matter how small they are.
