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.
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!
