There are times in everyone’s life when we discover that the only way to bring about a positive change is to reinvent ourselves. To change what’s comfortable and explore something new.
Now I’m not saying to radically change who you are and what you’ve become. But rather to look outside your comfort zone and understand that many times “change” can lead you down the path of opportunity.
Complacency can be a dangerous word. It provides us comfort and security, but oftentimes leaves little room for us to grow and find our true happiness in life.
Change is an unknown reality – no one is arguing that point. But once you set aside the fear and anxiety so many of us feel over trying something unfamiliar, you’re allowing your life the chance to progress; to find fulfillment; to connect with someone who might be feeling some of the same things that you are.
Steve Chandler is the author of Reinventing Yourself: How to Become the Person You’ve Always Wanted to Be. He has this challenge for his readers: “Write down 10 things you would do in your life if you had absolutely no fear. Then pick one of them and do it.”
No one is saying that reinventing yourself is easy and quick. It takes time and patience, but the journey is most certainly worth it.
