I believe life should always be a work in progress. We are always changing and evolving. Reinventing yourself means taking control of who you are and where you see yourself in the future and working towards that.
Too often we are unhappy with our lives, feeling stuck in the same situation for far too long. We begin to get bitter and call life unfair. Personally I believe luck in on your side sometimes but you can’t just sit and wait for said luck to make a presence in your life. Year after year you will feel like you’re going in circles. If you are miserable with where you’re at in life and who you are, you should get a handle on controlling your life back into perspective.
Planning and Executing. These are important in understanding and carrying out your reinvention. Many mornings we wake up and think I will do this today and that tomorrow and it never pans out. You need a solid plan(I will give some tips below) and you need to discipline yourself into being consistent in order to execute this plan/these plans.
Knowing and Understanding Yourself. You have to recognize what’s making you unfulfilled and understand why so you’ll have an idea what changes you would like to make for yourself.
Envision Your Future and Set Goals. Foresee the person you want to be and where you want to be. Make a list of the goals that you want to achieve.
Moving On. One mistake we all make when trying to modify ourselves for betterment is not letting go of the bad energy. Every day we’re planning and dreaming and feeling good about change and the majority of the time that this fails is because we fail to filter out what was causing the feeling of unfulfillment or misery etc. You can’t really move forward if what’s holding you back is still holding you back. As a woman I can tell you the majority of us lets grief/loss of friends and family cause us great misery even after time has passed.We don’t forget many things and we don’t stop feeling it either. Moving on is difficult but it’s a step you have to want to make for it to happen. You have to get rid of that bad energy,let go of what is not good for you.
Be Yourself. You’ll probably have grown up to believe life is supposed to be like this and that, but settling for less than what you want, does not make you happy. So change, make the change, even if you are alone on this. Don’t settle for less than what you deserve.
Be Courageous. Be brave enough to be yourself and do what you want to do. As long as you are making yourself happy, don’t let fear hinder your progress.
Take one step at a time. You may want that dream career or that dream guy overnight but it doesn’t happen that way. It takes time and patience, so however slow you move towards your goals, don’t feel like a failure. Give yourself a pat on the back from time to time, be easy on yourself.
Walk out of your life. This is a personal favorite of mine. I love to walk out of my life, unlearn everything I have learned and start over new. Some people need a modification and some need a complete change.
Regrets. I’ve read articles about this and heard it a few times. People on their deathbed think about what they could have done or done differently. I don’t know how true this is. I came pretty close to dying and all I felt was peace, all the fear left me. Anyways, try not to be regretful of your life. Just take risks and step outside the box. At least you’ll know you’ve tried.
