How do you judge people? By their track record or by their potential? What about yourself? Do you give more weight to the past than to the possibilities? Do you sometimes feel that all you’ve learned from past failures is how to fail?
The past doesn’t define who you are
Do you get that? The past doesn’t define who you are. If you haven’t achieved your goals in the past, that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve them as of now. The past doesn’t define who you are. If you (or others) think that wealth and success ‘just aren’t you’, that doesn’t mean that you can’t be who you want to be as of now.
Reinventing yourself means ‘reimaging’ or ‘reimagining yourself’, getting a different sense of who you are and what you can accomplish. It’s possible to reinvent yourself. It’s okay to reinvent yourself. We all have to reinvent ourselves as the world changes. A commitment to success is a commitment to constantly rethinking who we are. It’s about leaving our limitations behind us, letting them go and taking hold of new possibilities.
Perhaps it’s time to update the person you think you are, or the person others think you are.
The world doesn’t stand still. If you’re standing still, in real terms you’re probably going backward. But if you make a commitment to reinventing yourself, to changing what needs to be changed in your life so that you can be all you can be, to seeing yourself as someone for whom anything is possible, then anything is possible.
Let me challenge you. Identify your passion and throw yourself into that passion now! Set up an action plan and give it a go. You’ve got nothing to lose but your limitations. The past does not define who you are.
