The opinions of the employees of You are personal.
Maybe you are dreaming of starting a new business or you need to move or what do you know? You are likely to fall in love or, unfortunately, you may lose someone you love.
By that I mean that life goes by and can turn it upside down from one second to the next.
A few years ago it seemed like I was having the best time of my life. I had just successfully sold mine Start upI had a job that paid me pretty well and I had just married. Six months later, I bought a company that was losing every penny it had Multimillionaire I was by chance “broken several times “.
This experience taught me to reinvent myself, adapt to change, and move on with everything and the beatings of life.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need to reinvent yourself, here are 15 ways that can help you along this path of transformation.
1. Do you really want to change?
There are times when we are forced to reinvent ourselves. For example, when a company fails. If you don’t want to change, you never will. In my case, I didn’t want to see my family on the street so I had no other choice.
2. get up early
I’ve never been a “morning person” and to be honest, I’m not one of those people who’s up at four in the morning. Still, I’ve made a pact with myself not to wake up after 6:30 a.m. every day.
As soon as I started wake up earlyI discovered that I had more time to do activities that would make me a better person (both professionally and personally). I knew nobody was awake at this point, so there was a lot more I could do, especially at work.
3. Prioritize your tasks
The Reinvention it doesn’t happen overnight; It takes commitment and patience. To achieve your goals, you need to invest at least an hour a day in achieving those goals. This means that you need to learn to prioritize your tasks. How? Create a to-do list.
4. Meet the right people
Today it’s easier than ever Networking And while some use this to make friends or job opportunities, you can use it to be with people who make you a better person.
Seth Godin uses the example of Shepar FaireyYou may not be familiar with the name, but you will surely find the iconic poster he made of Barack Obama.
“The Internet has contributed to its spread. Suddenly the poster became an icon, ”he says.
Fairey didn’t care that he didn’t make a penny by “selling” the picture. The only thing that interested him was that they made it known and that this connection increased his level of art. Now you don’t have to look for a job anymore.
Whether you are reading or attending a workshop or webinar, there is always a learning opportunity.
Learning will motivate you, help you develop mental skills, and introduce you to new people and thoughts. I like to do that through books.
6. Find a mentor
“Someone has to teach you how to move and breathe,” writes James Altucher.
There are different types of mentors:
- Direct. The mentor in front of you who will guide you.
- Indirectly. Those who are not with you physically are like the writers.
- Everything is a mentor. Altucher says:
“When you are a zero and have a passion for reinventing yourself, anything you see becomes like a metaphor for what you want to do.”
If you have a mentor who insists you do things the way they want you to, that’s fine. Learn this way, then do it your way.
7. Don’t be afraid to experiment
Try new things. After failing in my business, I started various companies and tried everything from blogger to payment agency.
Some projects were successful, others a real failure, but it doesn’t matter! What matters is that you don’t be afraid to try. When you do what you love, you can be a little calmer when it comes to making money.
8. Be honest with yourself and with others
I wasn’t a humble person. When my business failed, I didn’t want to speak to anyone because I didn’t want to be known and am I going to tell you something? The more people know, the more people can help you. Learn to be honest with yourself and face your fears.
9. Do not give reasons for your decision
Speaking of honesty, when someone asks you, be transparent. There’s a reason you decided to reinvent yourself, and if you really have the passion, others’ opinions don’t have to reverse your process.
10. Get out of your comfort zone
We are “creatures” of habits, but the fact of breaking comfort forces us to have new experiences, meet new people, and learn different things.
Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, therapist and author of “Better than perfect” ensures that breaking your own shape will only make you stronger and more confident that you can move to a higher level in your personal and professional life.
“To be more creative, you have to try new things and look at them from a different perspective.”
11. Manage your finances
Reinventing yourself won’t always be free. An example could be that you need to take workshops or courses if you want to change your career. Because of this, it is important to establish a budget and stick to it so that you have adequate funds to complete your transformation.
This is my advice: take 20% of what you make and put it in the bank. As entrepreneurs, we sometimes make “a lot” of money in a few months rather than others; Take care of your finances.
12. Follow the 24 hour rule
Keep in touch with people you meet at events and build good relationships.
13. Create new daily lists
As you make your lists, you will see how there are details that stay with you and others who don’t. Instead of wasting all of your energy in areas that you are not passionate about, devote it to achieving a desired goal.
14. Take one step at a time
Reinvention is a process that can take years. Don’t be consumed by the bigger picture and take steps to achieve and achieve your goals. For example, if you want to have a better body, your first step is to go for a walk. The next will be to create a schedule to hit the gym later and then eat healthy. One step at a time.
15. Accept mistakes
If you don’t buy a guitar, transform yourself into one in an instant Jimi Hendrix. Trust me you will miss a lot if you try to play any of his pieces. Reinvention takes time and a lot of patience.
In time, you will accept that you will fail and you will learn from it and move on.
