There comes a time in one’s life when you just feel that there is something missing. And usually, people try to compensate for this by acquiring more money or possessions but, essentially, this feeling can only go away by reinventing yourself to become the person that you are meant to become.
This involves change from the inside, a paradigm shift. It involves starting over and becoming a totally new person. If you want to achieve fulfillment and genuine happiness, consider reinventing yourself. The process may not be easy, but it will be worth it. Here are five steps you can take if you want to reinvent yourself.
Envision the Future You Want for Yourself
Take some time to create a vision of how you want your future to be. Go to a quiet spot and sit down, close your eyes, and imagine your life as it is now. Then imagine the things that you see yourself doing in your ideal future, the people you are with, and the places you want to go to. Then open your eyes and express your appreciation and gratitude for everything that you have experienced in the past up to the present day. Once you have done this, decide to leave these behind and start your journey towards the future that you want.
Start Writing About Your Reinvention
Start writing a journal that contains all the things you know or are looking to define about your future self and future life. Write about how you spend your time, who you spend it with, where you are living - and how you want these things to change, if at all. Describe how you want to wake up in the morning and the things that keep you happy. Make plans about the hobbies you want to engage in, the dream job you want to have, the trips you will be taking.
Surround Yourself with Visual Reminders
Creating a vision board is one good way to have a visual reminder of the ideal life you want to have. You can also buy or create things that are aligned with what you want to be doing. For instance, if you want to start a hobby like painting, you can start buying the art supplies that you will be needing for that new hobby. Visuals are powerful tools to help you get aligned to what you want to become. In fact, this very same logic is used for branding. One example is the logo and site redesign of Bitcasino. The letter B in the old logo used to resemble the bitcoin symbol, but the new logo is a letter B that is formed from several orange dots that are arranged in what looks like two triangles that are on top of each other. Whereas the old logo seems to be inspired by the bitcoin symbol as the site is all about online gaming with bitcoin, the new logo is more sophisticated and unique – something that expresses the uniqueness of the brand.
Take Action Towards Your Reinvention
Now that you have a clear vision of what you want to become, you need to take the necessary actions that will lead you towards your new self and new life. This may involve taking a course, meeting new people, seeking a mentor, or moving to a new location. Start taking these steps and commit yourself to the journey towards your reinvention.
Change is never easy. But if you want to be truly fulfilled and live a happy and meaningful life, you need to listen to yourself and do whatever it takes to achieve the change that you need. These steps will help you start and stay committed to your journey.
