Have you ever just felt stuck in your life? As if you are going around and around in a circle and you can’t seem to break out? Well, this could be because something in your life is creating that problem. Today’s article discusses just “What’s Holding You Back From Moving Forward?” in more detail so you can crush it and focus on yourself and your business.
You’re Playing It Too Safe
If you are constantly worried about the future, and this worry keeps you from taking risks, this is probably the number one reason you aren’t moving forward. To move forward, you have to live a little and do something which makes you a little uncomfortable—it’ll pay off in the end.
The next time you are faced with something that takes you out of your comfort zone, give it a try—you may find a little risk is a positive addition to your life.
You’re Stuck In The Past
To move forward, you have to learn to let go. The past is the past for a reason. Remember it fondly, but make sure you aren’t focused on it. Don’t devote any time to it, as this will keep you from being able to propel yourself forward into the future. And that’s what you want, right? Living in the past will suck up your whole day and make you feel miserable. I know from experience that you don’t need that in your life today!
You Doubt Your Abilities
If you want to make changes to better your life or move forward, you can’t do so if you constantly doubt yourself. Have a little confidence in yourself. Just deciding to move forward is a big step, and only the most successful people do so. If confidence is something you struggle with, consider trying some tactics to increase your confidence. And please do this before making a large change in your life.
You Are Hanging With The Wrong Crowd
Are all your friends stuck in dead-end jobs? I bet they complain about how miserable they are, don’t they? According to Jim Rohn, you are the combination of the five people you are closest to in life. And if these people aren’t going anywhere, you likely won’t either.
Be especially careful if you find yourself spending time with people who seem to talk down about your future. Don’t let their negative outlook become yours, as this could end up holding you back big time. No one said moving forward was easy, but it may feel impossible if you are being held back. Instead, choose to make changes to your life to stop your convictions, past, and your friends from holding you back. After all, moving forward is part of being successful and having a happy life.

A new beginning can be challenging and stressful, especially if you start over in a new location or a new profession. Although there isn’t any way to make these changes easier, below are some tips to help you conquer and embrace your new beginning.
First Principles – Break It Down
Just like breaking a large goal down into smaller ones can help it feel more accomplishable, so too can breaking down a big change make it more manageable. If you are moving, see if you can break your move into three days. Or maybe you spend the day before setting up the utilities at the new place, and that way, when you are tired from moving your stuff the next day, everything is already ready to go.
Find A Support System – Your Foundation
Whether it’s a new job or a new city, make sure you have a support system. Even if they aren’t nearby, just having someone you can call with weekly updates can do wonders for managing your stress level.
You can also build a new support system wherever you are going. If you are new to a job, they will often have a designated new hire person you can go to with questions. Maybe see if you can exchange numbers and grab a coffee. You never know who could end up being a great new friend!
Have A Role Model
It can be important to have a role model for especially drastic changes, maybe someone who has made a similar move and thrived from it. This doesn’t have to be someone famous; it could even just be a family member. But whenever you are stressed about your big change, remember how your model handled it. You definitely don’t want your new beginning to be stressful.
Enjoy Yourself – Follow Your Heart
Most of all, don’t forget to have fun! This is a new beginning, and no matter what has changed in your life, there are likely to be a few growing pains. So, embrace all the new fun things, and learn to laugh at yourself when you make mistakes. It’s all part of the process! And if you tell yourself you will enjoy your change, chances are you will.
New beginnings can be a drastic change for anyone, but there are several things you can do to embrace and make the most of them. Just remember to break the change down, reference your support system or role model, and have fun! Before you know it, the new beginning will be your amazing new normal.

Starting over can be tough. And even if it’s not challenging, rarely is it ever easy. If you’ve recently had to start over, you’re probably feeling a host of emotions such as uncertainty, stress, and fear. Although you may be scared, you shouldn’t fear new beginnings because they do signify some amazing things coming into your life. This article today focuses on why we shouldn’t fear new beginnings.
Taking Power Over Your Life
Starting on a new beginning in your life is the ultimate sign of power. Something in your life happened, and you decided you didn’t like it, so you made a change. Not only that, but you likely made a change in the direction that you wanted your life to go.
When you embark on this new beginning, you are taking away the power from the source of whatever caused you the trauma and returning it to its rightful owner, yourself. And this is what makes new beginnings so incredibly powerful.
New Beginnings Are Needed To Grow
As sad as endings are, there is always a reason something came to an end. No matter what that reason may be, the reason something ended is so that you can have a new beginning. Without new beginnings, you may never be given a chance to build yourself up to your full potential. Think of it this way; if you were a goldfish, you would probably love the fishbowl you live in.
It’s cute and cozy, and you’ve been there your whole life. Now suddenly, you’re in a three-gallon tank. This is probably scary, but you need this larger tank to grow! In this case, the goldfish will die if left in the small bowl—therefore, even if the giant tank may be terrifying, the goldfish must move to survive.
You Know More Than You Did Before
If your trauma was a result of a mistake you previously made, don’t fret. As you embark on your new beginning, you can do so with confidence because you now know more than you did before. Mistakes are normal, and starting anew is a sign you’ve learned from your previous mistakes, and you are committed to not making them again.
Overall, whatever your new beginning may be, you’re likely feeling a bit nervous as you think about it. But don’t worry, new beginnings, while scary, are necessary. They teach you lessons and let you take back power over your life. You may not feel great at first, but someday you will look back and be thankful you started over.

Today’s article discusses why new beginnings make us so scared. If you’ve ever experienced a new beginning, or if you are currently preparing for one now, you probably feel a combination of both fear and stress. And these feelings are completely natural as new beginnings scare everyone in one way or another. This fear is occurring for many reasons you may not even realize.
The Preliminaries – Something Is Ending
The number one reasonnew beginnings scare us so much isn’t that something new is starting. But rather something which made us happy before is ending. Change is natural, even though it may not feel natural at the time.
Just remember that when something ends, it’s because something better is coming for you. Don’t try to hang onto something which is falling apart. This can make the new beginning even more difficult if you are still grasping for the past. Instead, be grateful the past happened and commit yourself to moving forward.
Fear Of The Unknown – The First Stage
When you start over either in a new location or job, you have no idea what this change will bring you. You don’t know that it will be better or more fun. You hope it will be, which breeds fear. Humans are naturally built to fear what they are uncertain about. But don’t let the fear scare you, instead push forward and tell yourself that this change will be for the better. You may just be surprised at the power a positive outlook can have.
Your Last New Beginning May Not Have Worked
If you’ve changed your life drastically a few times, there’s a chance that the idea you may fail in another new beginning is contributing to your fear. But don’t let these emotions control you. Why New Beginnings Make Us So Scared is a natural process. As mentioned above, your outlook is a huge part of your success in this new situation.
Remember why your last new beginnings didn’t work out and use this knowledge not to make the same mistakes again. And most of all, believe in yourself because you can do it!
New beginnings scare everyone. After all, to have a new beginning, something else had to have ended. But don’t let the fear of the unknown or past mistakes lead to fear of new beginnings. Instead, know that new beginnings are a good and necessary part of life, and your fear will likely lessen if you embrace the coming change with open arms.
