Build Your Confidence
Improving your skills, habits, and knowledge can help you attain more confidence in yourself. A wonderful outcome of reinventing yourself is learning to love and feel confident about the person you are choosing to become through this process. The more you grow and have success though reinventing yourself, the more confident you’ll become that you can achieve whatever you put your mind toward in life.
Become The Best Version Of Yourself
When you transform your life, you don’t want to make changes that cause you pain or make your life worse. No! You make changes for the better. You learn to be the best version of yourself, and you craft the best version of your life that you can create. You can reach your full potential in whatever aspects of your life you choose.
Many people find that reinvention exposes them to new people and ideas, which broadens their thinking. Some report healthier relationships and more success in their professional lives. Others notice a reduction in mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Whatever benefits you experience will be well worth the effort. So, do you have what it takes to reinvent yourself? Let’s find out.
Improve Your Health
Reinventing yourself is good for your health. Change is useful for your body, as it releases happy hormones like dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin. If you don’t feel well, that’s all the more reason to work hard at changing your life, as the process can help you feel better.
Learn To Face Fear
Fear is the first roadblock to personal change. It’s not that easy to change one’s self and life without giving up something you’ve already got. As you continue in the process, you learn to still and manage your fears. You learn how to go forward even if your plan is in constant development.
Reinvention requires embracing uncertainty. It means getting comfortable with discomfort. Doing new things, trying new ways to be is scary! Allowing fear to stop us from changing is always the biggest block to proactive reinvention. Always.
Unlike reactive reinvention, when you must make big changes or face even worse situations than self-renewal, proactive reinvention seems optional when we get scared, so we have the option to retreat into safety. Safety is great. However, clinging to the safety of the familiar ensures you will never reinvent yourself.
Regeneration of the self requires living with fear, too. Consider as an example the situation of leaving one career for another, more ideal career. Common wisdom says you must have another job before leaving your current job. That wisdom in this situation kills any chance of getting that ideal job.
It’s very hard, maybe impossible, to prepare for a completely new profession while working a full-time job. A dentist who leaves her job for another job as a dentist has changed locales but has not at all reinvented herself.
Making a jump from the known into the unknown safely, with no risks, doesn’t happen. There is always some element of risk. Learning to live with risk in order to get something you dearly want is one of the biggest rewards of reinventing yourself.
