Why is trying new things important?
Trying new things is important because it helps keep life interesting. It pushes us to face our fears, it expands our minds and beliefs and it’s just plain good for the soul!
It brings a sense of adventure and excitement into life which can get drained out with the sometimes mundaneness of everyday life.
But, to be able to try new things we often have to:
- be brave and not worry what other people think,
- believe in ourselves,
- believe in the possibilities,
- not let fear based thinking rule our thoughts,
- be willing to take action
If these all sound a little scary for you right now, then it’s time to start by taking baby steps.
