As more and more Baby Boomers hit 50, there’s a heightened buzz about “reinventing” oneself. Actually, I believe we are always in a state of reinvention, often without knowing it. Reinvention is just another word for “change” and that is on-going, regardless if we are aware of it or not. What’s exciting is that when we are conscious we have choices that we can make about who we want to be and what we want to be doing in now as well as in the future.
Here are a few tips that will help you “reinvent” yourself:
- Create a future vision for yourself. Don’t limit your thoughts. Allow yourself to dream.
- Write it down. It’s amazing how taking action can propel us forward. Be descriptive and concrete. Describe how the future will look and feel.
- Use imagery. Post pictures of what you want in your future where you can see them. I’ve actually written on my bathroom mirror as a way to remind myself every day.
- Break it down. What do you need to move forward? Start now.
- See yourself there and allow yourself a few moments in the morning and evening to reflect on your future life.
It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done or that you are over 50. Remind yourself change occurs because we have the power of choice and the next step is being courageous to follow your heart.
It’s all about a “dream come true” … not just by accident, but by action. When did you start over, reinvent yourself? Why? And how did you accomplish it? Most importantly, what inspired you to take that leap of faith; to trust your intuition and know that this was the path you were meant to follow?
