Starting over in life happens to someone every second around the world. We often hear of how we need to take risks to get ahead, but seldom hear of the one’s who did and lost everything. Many of these people are labeled as failure, quitter or underachiever, but this is not even close to the truth.
Despite what others may say it’s never too late to recreate your life story, and start over with new beginnings. Taking risks don’t always work out, in fact many have literally lost everything they’ve worked their entire life for from a risk.
“Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision not to worry about what other people think, do, or say.” Napoleon Hill.
The economy, or weather do not determine who you are as a human being. Usually before any major breakthrough, or accomplishment, your character will always be tested. Many of us have had to face a choice in life to either start over, or continue down a dead end road that leads to nowhere
For most of us starting over is unthinkable. Picking up the pieces after a failed marriage, business, or lost job is only a few of our worst nightmares. The good news is that it’s never to late for new beginnings. To start over with a fresh perspective on things.
What’s interesting is that many highly successful people have experienced major failure at some point in their lives. Most challenges we face are not what they seem on the surface. Sometimes our biggest failures are a blessing in disguise. When you have lost everything (or so it seems) because of poor decisions, and major failures you probably still have a lot more than you think.
“Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure”. Napoleon Hill
People who are not willing to fail will never experience their dreams. When you’re not failing at something the chances are you’re not doing much. Failure is only practice, and practice makes those willing to fail much more likely to succeed. We become smarter, more efficient, and much stronger through failure than success. Failure is a great valuable teacher when we don’t repeat the same mistakes.
Through every failed action we do in life there’s a chance to start over, and do it right. To get a fresh perspective while gaining more self-confidence, and a sense of inner strength that wasn’t there before.
Make a comeback
Regardless of where you are it’s never too late to make a comeback, and shape your destiny for success. For example Henry Ford went bankrupt 5 times before the first Model T ever left the assembly line. His determination paid off, becoming one of the wealthiest most influential people of his day. Donald Trump was hundreds of millions in debt, but managed to make a comeback. He couldn’t even afford a taxi cab to a meeting with the banks he owed. That long walk in the rain to that meeting made Donald Trump a better Man. He learned from his mistakes, and became much more wealthier as a result.
These are only a few examples of people who had to start over in life. You’ve probably read stories of investors jumping out windows during the great depression. Most of them would have recovered their losses. Many others did, and got very rich. We should never focus on our failures as the final result. If you’re ambitious than you’ll make a comeback with better results than before.
“What’s so fascinating and frustrating and great about life is that you’re constantly starting over, all the time, and I love that”. Billy Crystal.
Realize how rich you are
Did you know that you are rich? As hard as it may seem to believe you are very rich. Compared to the rest of the world you’re living the dream life. The world is filled with people who have nothing. About 3 billion people live on less than two dollars a day worldwide. If you work at McDonald’s flipping hamburgers you make more than 75% of the world’s population.
No matter how much debt you’ve accumulated there are billions of people a lot less fortunate. You maybe drowning in so much debt that you don’t know what to do. But there is something you can do right now. You can start being grateful for everything you have. One of the best ways to change a bad situation is through a deep appreciation for everything you have. When you are grateful for small things big things begin to happen.
The opportunities are endless when starting over in life
Starting over in life is humiliating, and horrifying, but the opportunities are endless. I know because it happened to me. It was a choice I made to start over. The first few years were very difficult. I went from $60.000 per year to 12,000 the first few years.
Within 4 years I was making 4 times what I made initially at my old job. I was determined to change my circumstance. I used every bit of my time to accelerate my life. Since then I’ve never looked back.

One thing I noticed during this time was a deeper appreciation for small things. Small things matter when you’re broke. Your whole attitude has to change when you’re starting over in life.
“Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over”. Guy Finley
Now days you don’t need a huge investment to make lots of money. Having a low risk business that generates a lot of money is not uncommon. For example network marketing, or an online website that generates unlimited passive income. This minimizes the risk factor. No space rent, No inventory, No employees, and no boss. You can literally make money while you sleep. This is a great opportunity for anyone starting over despite present circumstances.
