Today is National Take A Chance Day- a day to follow your dreams and goals and do something out of your comfort zone. Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Conquer your fears...

Conquer your fears...

Tell someone how you feel- That crush you’ve had for ages- isn’t it about time you told them that they rock your world? Or maybe you have a partner already and you want to take things to the next level- ask them to move in with you or marry you. By making a big commitment you are solidifying how you feel about them.

Conquer a fear- Get on that rollercoaster, go to the cinema by yourself or go and visit your friend with the pet spider and give it a cuddle! Chances are it wont be as bad as you’ve built it up to be in your mind.

Try a new food- Book in at a restaurant and order something you never have before or order a takeout meal that you’ve never even contemplated. It could become your favourite dish.

Apply for that dream job, promotion or internship- And why not? If it’s your ambition- you will have the passion to see you through. Life is too short to spend 8 hours a day doing something you hate.

Reconnect with someone you haven’t seen in a while- Drop them a message- ask how they are and if they want to meet up for a catch up. They will appreciate you reaching out.

Sign up to that class- You know, the one you’ve been eyeing up for a while. Whether that’s writing, art or a pottery class- get your name on the list!

Organize to do something you’ve never done before- A trip to the theatre, Go Ape, plan a visit to a place you’ve never been, go ice skating- whatever it might be- do it- you might love it- you might hate it- but at least you can say you’ve done it.

Sign up for a course- Perhaps you want to change careers or have an interest in another field- why not learn more about it in a classroom? You never know- it could lead to a whole new path.

Say ‘yes’ to everything that is offered to you today- As long as it’s legal and not harmful to you or anyone else! If you like routine and often say ‘no’ to things- say ‘yes’ instead and see where it takes you.

Buy the thing you need to kick start your dream hobby- A bathing suit, some walking shoes, some drawing pencils or a notebook. If you have the tool to do whatever it is that takes your fancy- you have no excuse not to get started.

Happy National Take A Chance Day everyone!
