“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start,
 anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

It is a familiar statement. Put differently, once every little while. We have all intentionally or been forced by circumstances to… Start a new chapter, open a new page, go back to the drawing board, start a fresh and all those synonyms that you may have used when it was time to concede some reality and take on a new path in life.
New wine …new wine skins
The mistake we make when starting a fresh is to think that the problem was out there rather than within us. Most of the time, for anything to change, – since the need for a change is the ultimate goal of every new start; -we need to be that change.
Look inside; check your attitudes, values, believe systems, thought and behavioral patterns, emotions, motives and all those intrinsic dynamics that dictate external factors. Casting away the old and taking on the new is the way to go and grow. A new way calls for new ways.
When we take on the challenge of making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf; beginning with a clean slate, entering  into a state of grace or having a second chance, it’s like being born anew.  It comes with a price, sometimes with pain.
Opening a new chapter in life only to rewrite old paragraphs from previous chapters doesn’t make any difference.
Use the wealth of experience you have and start on the advantage of what you already know: that way you have an edge over your ‘previous self’.
The beauty of starting again is that it’s an opportunity that’s always available.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, but there is need to build capacity to bring the change we desire as we enter into a new day, a new season, a fresh start, open a new chapter or turn on a new leaf in life.

Inspiring thinking Steve (^_^). I like to say we are all always in a state of transition. We all may be "caught in our own web of circumstance" to recognize that and transition from that state we do well to remember Ainstiene "If we want different results, we cannot be doing things the same way as we previously did, we need to do things differently." That is where level 3 of the competence chart comes in: We ACT consciously. That action should come from our hearts, the seat of motivation: so yes, it is a inward - out process. Our outward actions reflect our inner self, encompassing our desires, thoughts, disposition, attitudes, and goals. Note that heart can be treacherous too. I also agree that it could be challenging since we have to war against old habits as it were (^_^). If we want to be change in others, yes that change begin with us, individually. Regards

I quote Dalai Lama on hope - The very purpose of our life is happiness, which is sustained by hope. We have no guarantee about the future, but we exist in the hope of something better. Hope means keeping going, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ It brings inner strength, self-confidence, the ability to do what you do honestly, truthfully and transparently.
