When routine deadens your senses and you are no longer seeing what’s right in front of you each day, shake up your world. Change your normal route to work; do your errands differently; rearrange the decorations in your living space. Find a way to see your life from a new perspective. This may sound simplistic, but it creates a big shift in your outlook on life. It allows you to once again see things with a fresh eye.
When you allow yourself to become lulled into complacency, set your life on fire. Think of an activity that scares you a little — then go do it. You’ll be amazed at how empowered and brave you will feel once you’ve tried something radically new and a bit heart-pounding.

What can you do to shake up your world and set your life on fire? Consider what it will feel like to reclaim your verve, your zest for life, and your personal power.
