4 Tips To Help You Reinvent Yourself
People have mistaken reinvention as tossing out the old and replacing it with new. What reinvention truly does is that it allows you to leverage everything you’ve ever done; the good, bad, the ugly, your success, and your failures. Reinvention doesn’t mean you need to “toss out” the old you, rather you just need to grow because that is the heart of reinvention and so, you can’t fully become better without it.

Here are 4 tips to help you reinvent yourself
1. Try to do something you always pushed aside
If there’s something you’ve passionately wanted to do over the years then maybe it’s time to do it. Before you finished high school, go to college, get married, or have kids, is there something you’ve always wished to do?
How about you start with something small like traveling to somewhere you’ve always wanted to go and if you want to go big then you can write the book you’ve always wanted.
2. Create a New Initiative
You can create even the simplest things like fixing a situation at work or joining a nonprofit organization that motivates you and if you’re feeling up to the task you can create one! Want to start small? You can start with donating or just volunteer to offer a free service to any nonprofit organization close to you. Creating a nonprofit group that can solve a problem in your locality is also a great idea.
3. Explore a Career Change
Who doesn’t want a successful career? But have you ever wondered why you aren’t achieving that success in your place of work even though you’ve been putting so much effort into making things right? One thing you can do is to change your career path to something you’ve always wanted for a long time. Even if this idea is a big one, you can always start small.
4. Recognize Resistance
If you’ve always wished to travel somewhere, write a book, join or create a nonprofit organization, or change your career path but you keep backing out then you might be hitting a resistance wall. It is essential to recognize that whether you wish to take a huge step or a small step in reinventing yourself, you will hit brick walls like fear, guilt, and excuses.
So when you hit that resistant wall, it’s time to reaffirm and continue with your reinvention because that is just a sign that you are on the right track. Don’t give up on your dreams!
