Starting Over In Life

It’s something we all do at some point in our lives

Coincidentally, we were watching a rather old but nevertheless powerful Netflix documentary “I Am Not Your Guru” which is an insight into Tony Robbin’s Date With Destiny event

Gosh that was an insight

So many people looking for change and looking for guidance

For some, it’s big life milestones that trigger change — marriage or divorce, moving to a new city (or country as we’re doing), committing to a partner, buying a home, starting a family, or becoming empty-nesters.

It can be the loss of a loved one or friend.  We know this having lost both our parents now and it still affects us when we remember an event or something special in our memories.

It can be a global crisis (like the pandemic) or a traumatic experience.

For others, change comes from other significant changes that we all experience, like our health, aging, retirement, or simply who you choose to invest your time in.

It could be a new career, moving across the country (or world like us), or another life-changing event that catalyses big change.

Change is inevitable.

It often causes us to examine our values or re-evaluate our priorities.

And sometimes, it leads us to this question:

  • What should I do with my life? 
  • Should I start over in life? 
  • Where do I go from here? 

When we’re talking with clients about their retirement plans we hear this all the time


It’s A Fresh Chapter

If the notion of embarking on a fresh chapter in your life has crossed your mind, you’re far from being the only one in this position. It’s perfectly acceptable not to have a clear direction for your future at this moment. It’s absolutely fine if you don’t possess a meticulously detailed roadmap leading to your ultimate destination.

Remember, we all have just one life to lead. Each of us is on a personal journey, seeking to discover the finest version of ourselves.


You might be contemplating the prospect of embarking on a new chapter in your life, and it’s important to recognize that starting over does not equate to erasing all the knowledge, accomplishments, and experiences you’ve amassed thus far.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

Your life experiences have brought you to your current point, and today, you possess a wealth of wisdom that you did not have just a short while ago.

The most valuable asset you have at your disposal is your own self-knowledge.

This is just a blog post.

Your life isn’t going to magically change after reading it, but it’s a good start and the consequences of your action or lack of action are definitely not.

This is your life.

We were reading an article recently in Business Insider and these were the key questions the author suggested we all ask ourselves to see where the answers take you

  1. What will remaining right where you are now do to your life?
  2. Is your health helping or harming your purpose in life?
  3. When did you last step outside your comfort zone?
  4. What will continue to happen if your don’t change anything?
  5. Are you or could you use your strengths?
  6. What do you really dislike?
  7. What would you do if you had six months to live?
  8. What are you most afraid of?
  9. What’s the first step you could take?

If you really want to change your life you have to make a start somewhere and there really is no better time than now
