When you find yourself stuck in a mental space, then it is time to take some time to look at yourself. You can’t really change who you are. Your core, which is the truest form of yourself, is something that should be nurtured. This is the raw essence of who you are. Before you can tap into that you have to identify it. When you are stuck, it is because you aren’t sure about your abilities.
You can’t and should change to fit in. Innovation is about standing out, but not do so frivolously. For any improvement to be impactful, it has to have a purpose. Improvement won’t change the core of who you are, but it helps you to build on your strengths. Redefining yourself is a topic of debate and will continue to be one. Opinions on how and what to develop will change, but the only constant is that changing for change’s sake won’t help anyone.
As I said earlier, it takes some deep introspection to understand what you can develop. Bad habits can be picked up by anyone, but at the same time, they can be discarded. Honesty is a large part of this process. No one likes to admit their faults. Wouldn’t it be nice to be perfect? Unfortunately, that’s not the reality. This is a process that does not require intervention from external parties, so you don’t have to feel embarrassed about the bad habits you have amassed.
Now that you are aware of what you want to get rid of, it is time to outline what exactly you want to achieve. Vague descriptions are your enemy here. Be specific and realistic about your goals. It is always a plus to have some sort of plan as to how you are going to develop these new characteristics. Like the end goal itself, the plan should be as detailed as realistic as possible.
This is essentially a makeover from the inside out, so keep in mind that this patience and persistence are prerequisites for this process. In other words, stay dedicated, but do keep a light heart. You will make mistakes and missteps along the way, so don’t focus on the times you make errors. Here, you will build on your skills which is something to do with an open mind. There is no point in beating yourself up when something goes wrong. If you are not happy with the way you are now, then you should be happy when you are trying to make a positive change.
Reinvention is so much more than just an updated version of yourself. Go the extra mile and look at what makes you different. Play to your differences and don’t be afraid to stray from the crowd.
