The Starting Over Again IQ Matrix explores what it takes to begin again after a failure, mistake, rejection, or any kind of setback that derails your efforts. It’s particularly helpful when working through periods of change and transition in life. Starting over is, of course, never easy. To start over means letting go of certain things that could potentially hold you back. It also means opening yourself up to a different set of possibilities and opportunities for growth, development, and change. We must, however, first, be willing to shift how we think about our lives and circumstances, otherwise, none of this will come into effect. Without this shift, it will be difficult to start over again and move forward in a new direction.
This mind map defines what it means to start over again. It breaks down the mindset you will need to cultivate and presents you with a checklist of things to do to help you stay on track. And it walks you through a six-step process you can use to transition from one chapter of your life to another.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Starting Over Again mind map.
- What is Means to Start Over: So what does it mean to start over or begin again? The first branch of this map explores what it means to let go of the old and move onto something new that could potentially change your life for the better. Not every new path or beginning will bring you the results you desire to create in your life. But every path certainly provides you with key learning experiences needed to make the journey worthwhile.
- The Mental Shift Required: Before you start over again, it’s important to acknowledge your understanding of a few basic truths. The second branch of this map breaks down the truths that you must keep in mind as you progress forward. Use these as a checklist to help you stay on track on your new path. These truths are nothing more than simple mental shifts you need to make before starting over again. Simple, yet very powerful.
- The Process of Starting Over Again: The final two branches of this map unlock a six-step process you can use to start over again after an epic failure, mistake, rejection, or setback. Each of these steps will help you make that important leap from one chapter of your life to the next. Change is not easy, and venturing down a new path will raise a few doubts. So, even though this process of starting over might not feel comfortable at first, this is only temporary. Your comfort level will grow as you make progress along your journey.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for starting over again after an epic failure, mistake, or setback. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life and you will progressively begin taking the necessary steps that will help you start over again along a new path. This, of course, won’t be easy. However, through patience and perseverance, anything and everything becomes a possibility.
