… to start a new thing!
When was the last time you tried something for the first time? And first of all, why should you?
Kids try new things every day. Adults? Not so much. Why is that? Is it because we are afraid to waste our time, make mistakes, fail? We are used to eat the same type of food, go to the same places for holidays and talk to the same people at the party. While, in general, we tend to be happy following this pattern, it is crucial we realize the fact that we will not expand new horizons. Are you cool with missing new opportunities to grow? If so, that’s completely fine. If you’re not, then keep on reading this article.
Trying something new, regardless of size or importance, enriches perspectives, builds your self-confidence and gets you on the next level. It also helps you fulfill your dreams as you are getting closer to your goal day by day. Not only will you broaden your horizons (new hobbies, new acquaintances, new projects) but also you will get inspired and be an inspiration for others in your environment.
Trying something for the first time opens up the possibility for you to enjoy something new. Something you have never suspect yourself of enjoying. Is it cooking a Cantonese-style roast duck, going for a backpacking experience in Asia, taking up Spanish classes or waking up earlier tomorrow to go for jogging? Whatever it is, it will give you a chance to explore opportunities out there. Maybe you will like it, maybe you won’t. Maybe you will discover other things on the way, such as salsa, sky-diving, cooking classes or new business prospects. Or the love of your life?
How about experimenting with one of these:
- Eat at a restaurant alone and enjoy the experience.
- Start your own blog.
- Buy a lottery ticket.
- Fly a kite.
- Eat grilled frog’s legs.
- Skydive or go bungee jumping.
- Go for a backpacking experience to South America.
- Say hi to a stranger.
- Volunteer for a day at some charity organization.
- Write a book.
- Call a friend you haven’t seen for 10 years.
- Sing karaoke.
- Take a “do-it-yourself” class.
