Fortune Friday: “Be adventuresome and try a new look.”

We tend to be creatures of habit. We eat at the same five restaurants, wear the same five shirts, hang out with the same five people. Some will say “Yeah, I know what I like.” But more often it is we like what we know. Visiting new places, trying new experiences, and meeting new people can be uncomfortable. It’s outside our norm.

But habits, if we’re not careful, can form ruts. Like grooves carved into record vinyl. If we don’t break out once in a while we’ll just go round and round and round.

I love today’s fortune. Sure, trying a new look could mean buying a plaid shirt instead of your usual solid. Or shaving your head. Or getting that shade of lipstick you don’t think you have the guts to pull off. Or anything outside your habitual methods.

But what if it means to look in a new way? To try and see the world through a new lens, a new perspective?

Thought leader Dr. Wayne Dyer is fond of saying, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

How could your world change if you were adventuresome and tried a new look?

To your good fortune!
