[:en]Inspiration for a New Beginning[:]

[:en]

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~Saint Francis of Assisi

Many of us are currently starting new chapters in different areas of our lives. Whether it is moving into a new home, starting a new job, having a baby, starting a new business, or beginning a new relationship, embarking on a new adventure requires energy, dedication, stability of focus, and clarity of vision. Very often, it is the idea of starting something new that seems frightening to us. As we take the first step, the unknown territory gradually becomes more familiar and we begin to enjoy the process.

How To Make The First Step

How can we bring ourselves to make this first step? I think the above quote by Saint Francis sums it up. The desire for something new is usually born out of necessity for change. Ironically, the unhappier we are now the more energized and motivated we are to change something. At a certain point, current situation becomes so intolerable that the necessity of an adjustment becomes apparent. This is a turning point, when we start to take the necessary action steps to bring about the new vision.

The discomfort that is felt just before this turning point contains very useful information about what we want to have instead. This information can be used to create a vision for the future. The clearer this vision is, the more energy and motivation we can garner for making this transition. By experiencing this temporary pressure, uneasiness, impatience, or lack, we can crystallize our desire and inform our vision for the future.

Therefore, [clickToTweet tweet=”The best way to see any discomfort is like a precursor to something new that is about to be born.” quote=”the best way to see any discomfort is like an inspiration for change and a precursor to something new that is about to be born.” theme=”style3″] It shows us where the change is necessary.

The 3-Step Process to Initiate Change

A transition process is a process of trusting that you are doing your best every day by taking small steps. Taking these steps has a cumulative effect that eventually shifts the quality of an experience. This is clearly observed in learning to drive a car, play an instrument, or ride a bike.

I like to put it into a 3-step practical process of asking myself these three questions:

  1. What needs to be changed in my life right now?
  2. What is the next step I can take in the direction of change and expansion in this area?
  3. What other opportunities are available?

In this article on How to Support Yourself During A Time of Change, I provided a questionnaire that helps to evaluate you level of stress that comes from change and five ways to support yourself throughout this process.

Inspiration for a New Beginning

This poem from John O’Donohue’s book To Bless the Space Between Us is a perfect inspiration for a new beginning. It can be helpful as we prepare for what’s coming next. It emphasizes trust, grace, and listening to the rhythm of what is unfolding in our lives.

For A New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness grow inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the grey promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.[:]

I love the phrase ‘For your soul senses the world that awaits you’, Tanya. It speaks to the reader at various levels, most importantly, get off the chair and take action. That in itself will open up the realm of possibility.

Interesting read Denis, I have suffered with insomnia for most of my adult life and have tried lots of things to help, audio books being the most effective for me. I also realised that I only need about 4 hours of sleep a night but they need to be consecutive. If I manage to fall asleep by 4am and stay asleep till 8am I am at my best. Melloney Baillie Archy

Along with every thing that appears to be developing throughout this specific subject matter, a significant percentage of viewpoints are generally rather exciting. However, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it exciting none the less. It looks to everybody that your commentary are actually not completely justified and in reality you are your self not really entirely convinced of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate looking at it. Meghan Jaye Denni

I have witnessed that charges for on-line degree authorities tend to be an excellent value. For instance a full 4-year college Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits with $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online comes with a Bachelors of Business Administration with a full program feature of 180 units and a worth of $30,560. Online studying has made taking your college diploma far less difficult because you can certainly earn the degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish from office. Thanks for all other tips I have certainly learned from your web-site. Valida Sebastian Elison

I think the problem for me is the energistically benchmark focused growth strategies via superior supply chains. Compellingly reintermediate mission-critical potentialities whereas cross functional scenarios. Phosfluorescently re-engineer distributed processes without standardized supply chains. Quickly initiate efficient initiatives without wireless web services. Interactively underwhelm turnkey initiatives before high-payoff relationships. Carilyn Gaby Yaya
