You must accept that you have far greater control over your life than you realise – who you are, what you want and what you think. Your mental outlook on life as well as your character, and personality remain under your own leadership and guidance. When things don’t go to plan or you feel that progression has stalled its time for doing some different. Successful people recognise the need for constant change. When the results don’t come through a period of reinvention is invariably needed because what you are doing is not working. We can’t excel if we are not aligned to what we want out of life. If you are fed up with your under performing business, career, not getting the new job or promotion after constantly trying, then you must change. Successful people go the extra mile and understand the need to adapt.
The process of reinvention means that you need to critically appraise the status quo – look at your life, business or career from different angles.
What’s up ? Why are things not working or going to plan? Are you feeling fulfilled and happy with what you have and what you are achieving? Ask others for feedback on you and your performance. Open up your surroundings.
Where do you want the new you to be? – Get back to reviewing your personal intentions are they clear and precise or are they lacking definition and clarity.
List the key transition points? Define what specific things need to change. Draw up an action list. Detail the new partnerships and relationships that are needed to move things. Draw up the new tactics and work out the vital things that will deliver a different result.
Act out the changes – make a conscious effort to implement the changes that you need to make the transition to what you want to become. Without action nothing will happen. Make sure you signal the changes to your stakeholder group.
