To reinvent yourself means to bring your dreams and desires to life, to be able to tap into all the shutdown areas of your life. Reinvention is a word that sounds smart and responsible! Yay, I’m going to reinvent myself. Sometimes better to use this word instead of saying ‘I’m going to change.’
To reinvent any part of your life means you need freedom. This freedom only works if you have the time and space to stop. In order to reinvent yourself, you need to know who you are now. You also need space to create your future self.
A while back, after I fired a client, I found I was exhausted. This depletion of energy was nothing I had ever experienced before. I checked in with myself and decided I needed a break, time off to heal from my experiences with this past client. Clarity came after I slept, prayed, and wrote in a journal. My tiredness was all my responsibility, not the client. Bottom line was, I realized I was more concerned with the client’s business than the client was.
I do not make these mistakes anymore. I have gentle methods of informing upcoming clients of my way of being with them.
What about you? Do you take on another’s work along with your own?
You need relief from the ordinary, unpleasant tasks life includes. You need time.
You need to determine what you are doing that is no longer relevant or rewarding.
Decide what you no longer want to do, what takes up your precious time.
You need a plan to help you choose what no longer works in your life and decide what it is you truly want to do. Make a list of what works for you and know if you are living your True Calling.
Freedom and independence to choose, time to make changes, and room for all these changes to grow. This is part of what it takes to reinvent yourself.
Focus on your world and what you want. Stop surfing the web looking for some magic. It’s not there because it is in you. The definition of success is to have the freedom to be yourself. Be yourself and focus on what you really want.
