May 6, 2024

By Will Moore

Life can feel like a roller coaster ride, with ups, downs, and unexpected twists along the way. Whether you’re dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic event, a significant life transition, or simply feeling stuck in a rut, the prospect of rebuilding life from scratch can seem overwhelming. However, with the right mindset, tools, and action plan, you can transform your circumstances and create the life you desire.

This comprehensive guide will take you through a step-by-step process on how to rebuild your life in just 90 days. From conducting a thorough life audit and setting achievable goals to cultivating positive habits, overcoming obstacles, and building a strong support system, you’ll have a clear roadmap to follow. Let’s dive into it, aiming to help you create a new and fulfilling life.

What does rebuilding yourself mean?

Rebuilding yourself is about intentionally evolving as a person - your mindset, lifestyle, relationships and circumstances - to better align with your desired vision for your life. It requires self-awareness, discipline, and a growth mindset, but it allows you to pave your own path to becoming your best self.

Why 90 Days?

Setting a specific timeframe, like 90 days, creates a sense of urgency and commitment. It's a manageable duration long enough to make significant changes yet short enough to maintain focus. As Tony Robbins said, "By giving yourself a deadline, you're more likely to start and grow an active commitment to your goal."

Our lives often get stuck in a rut of daily routine and complacency. A 90-day challenge provides the jolt needed to break free from the inertia of old habits and patterns. It's a chance to hit the reset button and make conscious choices about how you want to live.

How to rebuild your life after trauma?

Phase 1: Self-Reflection and Goal Setting (Days 1-30)

Step 1: Conduct a Comprehensive Life Audit

Before rebuilding your life, you need to understand where you’re starting from. This step involves taking an honest inventory of your current situation, both positive and negative aspect.

Assess Your Current Situation

Look at different areas of your life, such as career, relationships, physical and mental health, finances, and personal growth. Rate your satisfaction level in each area on a scale of 1 to 10. This will help you identify the areas that need the most attention. You can take our core value quiz to get the right score.

Identify Areas of Dissatisfaction

What aspects of your life are causing you stress, frustration, or unhappiness? Be specific about what isn’t working and why. For example, instead of just saying “my job is terrible,” dig deeper into the reasons, such as a toxic work environment, lack of growth opportunities, or misalignment with your values.

Embrace Your Values and Aspirations

What are the core values and principles that matter most to you? What are your deepest dreams and aspirations? Getting clear on these will help guide the changes you want to make and ensure they align with your authentic self.

Step 2: Define Your Desired Outcomes

With a clear understanding of your current situation and what's most important to you, it's time to define the life you want to create.

Determine what it is that you really want to do. Start a passion, skill, or problem sheet: What are you passionate about? What are your skills? What problems can they solve? And how can you turn all that into a career? Write it down. Mix it up. Get creative!

Start small.

Don’t quit your job just yet if you don’t feel ready; you can always start your passion as a side job or a hobby. It all starts with just a step. Rebuilding your life cannot be done all at once; it takes time, and maintaining perspective in life is also important when you are trying to rebuild life. As long as you incorporate your strengths and passions and develop a plan, you’ll get exactly where you need to be. I have seen many Faith Driven Entrepreneurs succeeding because most of them start small and smartly.

Be smart about it.

When you do feel ready to quit your job, make sure you have a well-developed plan to keep yourself afloat. You must start focusing on living a balanced life; if you can’t keep the water running, you’re not keeping up with your five areas of life. If you have a plan and combine your strengths and skills with a solid problem to solve, you can begin to rebuild and create a life of passion and contentment for yourself!

Despite common beliefs, the opposite of being happy isn’t being sad; it’s being bored. There is no light at the end of the tunnel labeled “retirement.” Your passion and skills can be combined to rebuild your life now; don’t wait to start living.

Gain momentum and movement through your well-developed goals and plans. I repeat, don’t wait! And don’t you dare look back! As Ben Franklin most eloquently said, among other wise things, “Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.

Set SMART Goals

Based on your ideal vision, set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals for the areas you want to improve. For example, "Instead of vaguely resolving to 'get fit,' specify, "I will engage in 30 minutes of yoga every morning, five days a week, to enhance my flexibility and reduce stress by the end of this quarter."

Rather than a general desire to 'save money,' define it with, "I will save $300 monthly by cutting unnecessary subscriptions and dining out less, accumulating $1800 in a new travel fund by year’s end."

Prioritize and Categorize Your Goals

Not all goals are created equal. Prioritize your goals based on their importance and potential impact on your life. Then, categorize them into different areas (e.g., health, career, relationships) to create a well-rounded plan.

  • Immediate vs. Long-Term: Some goals, like improving daily nutrition, can be acted upon immediately, while others, like achieving professional certification, may take several months or years.

  • Personal vs. Professional: Balance is key. Ensure your goals span different areas of life—personal development, professional achievements, relationship building, and physical health.

This organization not only streamlines your focus but also aids in managing your time and efforts efficiently, preventing burnout and keeping you motivated.

Step 3: Cultivate a Growth Owner Mindset

Your mindset plays a vital role in your ability to rebuild your life successfully. A positive, growth-oriented mindset can help you overcome obstacles and sustain motivation. If you’ve read some of my other blogs, you may have heard me talk about people who have a growth-owner mindset vs a fixed-victim culture mindset. The growth-owner mindset group feel their passion and let it free. They live their lives following their own dreams instead of fulfilling others’.

Not all growth owners jump right in; some slowly inch out of their comfort zone, but the point is they are taking the first steps, even if they’re just baby steps. Their risk tolerance is high because they know they would rather jump and fall than never jump at all.

And they discover that combining your career and your passions is, in fact, possible; the sky is truly the limit when rebuilding your life.

“What if I fall?”

“Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”

  • E.H.

Take Shawn and Ian Murphy, for example. They left behind their office jobs to rebuild their lives and follow their dreams, starting by selling ties on the beach. Yes, they sold ties on the beach. They carried them in their backpacks and sold all 800 of them. Now they have several locations for their company Vineyard Vines. Talk about 5%ers.

Practice Gratitude and Positive Self-Talk

Start each day by identifying things you’re grateful for and speaking kindly to yourself. Add this to your good morning routine. This will set the tone for a positive mindset and help you focus on what’s going well rather than dwelling on negative self-talk.

Surround Yourself with Inspiration

Immerse yourself in inspiring content, whether it’s books, podcasts, or motivational speakers. Seek stories of people who have successfully overcome adversity and rebuilt their lives. Learn about their good habits. Read the top 10 Habits of a highly successful people.

Step 4: Create a Roadmap for Change

With your goals defined, it's time to map out the specific steps you'll take to achieve them.

Break Down Goals into Actionable Steps

For each goal, break it down into smaller, actionable steps. This makes the journey feel more manageable and keeps you focused on the next task rather than overwhelmed by the big picture.

Develop a 90-Day Plan

Using your actionable steps, create a detailed 90-day plan with specific tasks and deadlines. This will serve as your roadmap for the next three months.

Schedule and Allocate Time Effectively

To rebuild yourself requires dedicated time and effort. Block off time in your calendar for your action steps and priorities. Treat these commitments as non-negotiable appointments with yourself.

Phase 2: Habit Formation and Consistency (Days 31-60)

Step 5: Establish Keystone Habits

Habits are the foundation of long-lasting change. By developing good habits and breaking unhelpful ones, you can achieve your goals more efficiently.

Understand the Power of Keystone Habits

Keystone habits are foundational habits that domino affect other areas of your life. For example, developing a consistent exercise routine can improve energy, sleep, and productivity. Similarly, a habit like strategic planning doesn’t just keep your projects on track—it enhances time management across all your tasks and reduces daily stress.

Identify and Prioritize Pivotal Habits

To leverage the transformative power of keystone habits effectively:

  1. Map Your Goals to Habits: Review your goals in the earlier phase. Which habits directly contribute to these goals? For instance, if your goal is to improve professional networking, a keystone habit might be to spend 30 minutes every morning engaging with your connections on LinkedIn.

  2. Assess Impact Potential: Which habits, when implemented, will have the most profound effect on your life? Prioritize habits that offer multiple benefits. For example, mastering the habit of early rising could afford you undisturbed time for exercise, planning your day, or pursuing personal growth activities.

  3. Focus on Feasibility and Reward: Select habits that you can start incorporating immediately and that will yield visible benefits early on. This could be as simple as replacing an hour of evening screen time with reading or skill development, enhancing your knowledge and mental relaxation before sleep.

Create a Habit-Tracking System

Tracking your habits is crucial for building consistency. Use a habit tracker app, calendar, or journal to monitor your progress and stay accountable. At the end of each week, review your progress. Which habits are sticking? Where are you struggling? Adjust your strategies and experiment with different cues and rewards to make your keystone habits as engaging and rewarding as possible. It helps you gamify the process by making it fun and interesting.

By focusing on foundational habits that drive multiple areas of improvement, you enhance your ability to achieve and exceed your personal and professional goals. This approach streamlines your effort and multiplies the impact of every minute you invest in habit formation.

Step 6: Overcome Obstacles and Stay Motivated

Rebuilding your life is rarely a smooth, linear process. There will be setbacks and moments of discouragement. Preparing for these challenges can help you stay motivated and on track. Overcoming 'all your enemies,' including a fixed mindset, is crucial for maintaining motivation and progressing towards your goals.

Anticipate and Plan for Setbacks

Expect that there will be times when you stumble or face difficulties. Have a plan for how you’ll handle setbacks, such as reflecting on your “why,” reaching out to your support system or adjusting your approach.

Celebrate Small Wins

Don’t wait for major milestones to celebrate your progress. Acknowledge and celebrate the small wins along the way. This will help reinforce your success habits and keep you motivated.

Find Accountability Partners

Surround yourself with people who will support and encourage you on your journey. Find accountability partners who share your goals or join a supportive online community. Having others to answer to can help you stay on track.

Phase 3: Integration and Sustainability (Days 61-90)

Step 7: Evaluate and Adjust

As you near the end of your 90-day journey, it's essential to reflect on your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Conduct Regular Progress Reviews

Set aside time to review your goals and assess your progress objectively. Identify areas where you're excelling and areas that need more attention.

Take a moment to celebrate your progress and the positive changes you've made in your life. Acknowledge the hard work and dedication you've put in to get to this point.

Refine and Adapt Your Plan

Based on your progress review, refine your plan and make adjustments as needed. Perhaps you need to adjust a goal, tweak a habit, or add a new action step. Embrace flexibility.

Step 8: Build a Support System

Sustainable change often requires ongoing support and accountability. Building a strong support system can help you maintain your momentum and continue growing. Incorporating self development books into your support system is a powerful way to invest in your mind, embracing new mindsets , which can reinevnt your life and open new doors of perception.

Seek Mentorship and Guidance

Identify individuals who have achieved similar goals or have expertise in areas you’re working on. Reach out to them and ask if they’d be willing to mentor or guide you on your journey. Let go of toxic relationships that undermine your progress and well-being.

Step 9: Plan for Long-Term Success

Rebuilding your life isn’t a one-time event; it’s an ongoing process of growth and evolution. To ensure lasting success, you’ll need to plan for the long term.

Develop Maintenance Strategies

Identify strategies for maintaining the positive changes you’ve made. This could involve scheduling regular check-ins, or setting new goals to work towards. Learning to convey emotions appropriately is an essential part of one's personal development plan. It enhances your ability to present yourself and connect with others effectively.

Embrace Continuous Learning

Commit to a mindset of continuous learning and personal growth. Seek out new knowledge, skills, and experiences that will help you continue evolving and thriving. For those looking to improve their physical fitness, consider setting a goal to join a cross country team or a similar group, which can be a testament to your dedication and transformation.

Learn About Healthy Eating Habits

As you achieve your initial goals, set new ones to challenge and inspire you. This will prevent stagnation and keep you motivated to continue growing and improving.
