Each time a major shift happens in our lives—leaving a job or a relationship, moving, losing a loved one—we have to choose who we want to become or risk never reaching our full potential.
I've reinvented myself several times in my life. Most adults have.
But what many forget is that we have to choose reinvention. Each time I've done it, I've forged my new path deliberately and with foresight.
Today I am giving you 5 action steps to reinvent yourself.
1) Decide what you want: Get really clear on your goal. Sometimes, not everyone can easily decide what they want, and there is a process to know what actually you want. You can also find out by taking courses on what you're really good at and then decide how you can get the most out of your potential.
2) Determine what you need to believe to get what you want: Most of us have limiting beliefs. For example, if you want to reach your income goal of $1M a year, then think about what makes you so worthy of earning that much money and if you've tried to reach that goal but not achieved it, then think about what makes you not achieve that goal. To fix your belief system, you should practice positive affirmations every day.
3) Determine what it feels like when you reach that goal: Let's say you had an income goal, maybe $100,000 a year or $1M a year, and you achieved that goal. Now, what does it feel like to you when you reached your goal. Do you feel excited about it, you feel content, relieved, or is it a sense of confidence? This is a huge part of getting you going towards your next goal.
4) Go straight to your feeling and practice that feeling every day: Practice your feeling like you had these feelings before. Such as feeling of gratitude, state of relief.
5) New habits have to be created: You have to decide on those habits to get yourself to reach that point to reinvent yourself. Maybe that habit is to set up the morning routine where you say or listen to the positive affirmation yourself. I know this habit works really well for me, and I bet it would work for most of you as well. Habits like writing my gratitude journal and my goals, eat healthy, exercise more regularly. And at bedtime, I always try to listen to something that I want to ingrain into my subconscious to help me achieve my next goal.
These are the action steps that you should take to reinvent yourself to achieve your goals.
Again, remember you're the only one who can change your life.
