What’s an ultimate do-over? In the most simplistic of words, it’s your right to stop, redesign, redirect and then relaunch your life.
First, you have to acknowledge that everything that’s happening in your life, you are giving life (oxygen) to, so that they can exist in your world. It’s time to do an assessment. What people, things or responsibilities do you need to pull the plug on and though you’ll be tempted, you will not perform CPR. It’s time for you to declare they now have a DNR (do not resuscitate) on file!
Next and the most important part of your ultimate do-over, is to do the mental work. You have to begin the process of discovering what’s missing from your life that no longer speaks to your “why,” which is the core of why you exist.
As we grow and mature we become more aware of “why” God created us, we understand that it is mentally healthy and normal as a part of our being to want a do-over. However, what should be normal, can be really scary because though we aren’t happy in “what is” we are more afraid of “what is to come.” Nonetheless, free yourself from the prison of time and move on. Ecclesiastes 3:1 teaches us, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”
It’s quitting time! Embrace your do-over! Don’t allow embarrassment or the opinions of others to impede your progress. It takes faith and a resilience to win to launch a do-over.
For those friends that may taunt and tease you about your do over, let them know that, “Your opinions are no longer employed in my life.” And for your haters,“I can no longer be your perception of me!”
As you start your relaunch, recognize that transition takes time and it may not be easy but it is possible. When I was going through it, I prayed and mediated a lot. However, it was worth it. I quickly discovered that as I began to grow in to the new and improved version of myself, I attracted stronger and wiser friends. I also felt better in my body, I made better business decisions and began to experience good success in different areas of my life. Wow! I’m so grateful I made the decision to shift!
Now that you’ve make the decision to launch your ultimate do-over, use these Scriptures for power to kick your fears and doubts to the curb:
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Get ready, start, go! Your life is already getting better.
