This Is Your Sign To Try Something New (5th Thing)

“The one who falls and gets up is stronger than the one who never tried. Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.”  ― Roy T. Bennett

Trying something new may:

-Increase your self-confidence 

-Open doors to enlightening experiences

-Improve your memory, mood and motivation

-Increase your adaptability and agility

-Also, when we experience something new and like it, our brain triggers a release of dopamine. 

Why is it hard to try new things?

-Humans are often afraid of the unknown. 

-Familiar things are more comfortable and easier.

-Trying new things requires a lot of effort and courage.

Arthur Ashe says: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” 

Palliative care nurse Bronnie Ware recorded the top 5 regrets she heard from her patients as she cared for them at the end of life:

•"I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."

•"I wish I hadn't worked so hard."

•"I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings."

•"I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends."

•"I wish that I had let myself be happier."
