Write out a list of questions about your failure. You may never be able to answer them all. However, writing out these questions will allow you to see that this one instance of failure has no true hold on you.
2. Reexamine Your Life as a Whole
What about your life makes you anxious? What about your life holds you back from your true potential? Take a look your life from an objective stand point. Do not be afraid to see your error, laziness, or lack of judgment. Use these bits of your life to drive the rest of your life.
3. Seek out a New Mentor
Mentors are great. They can tell you things about yourself that friends and family may be too comfortable to tell you. Seek out someone in your field that can give you insight into a part of your career you have yet to tap into. Seek out someone who is in a place of financial security that you would like to get to. If you feel the need, grab a life coach. The mentor you choose can lead to the life you have always wanted.
4. Hash out a New Bucket List
Do you know those things you have always wanted to do? The places you have dreamed of seeing. Even the people you have wanted to help out. Write them down. Then actively find ways to accomplish each and every single one of them. Set time limits where possible, and you are sure to get through your list in no time at all. Once you complete a list, you’ll become enthralled with finding more things that you want to accomplish.
5. Get Organized

Have a calendar for events and happenings for your household and beyond. Getting organized maybe be the remedy for your reinvention. Start small and go big. There is no need to fear the unknown of what your have to organize. Just hop to it!
