Where Do You Start a Reinvention?

Where Do You Start a Reinvention

Trying to figure out where to start reinventing yourself might feel overwhelming, as if there’s a secret formula, or a right place to begin.


There isn’t.


The best place to start is from where you are now, with all your hopes and dreams, curiosities and confusions. Here are four thoughts on how to begin.


Create a vision

A vision can help motivate you, provide a road map, and sketch out what you’re trying to bring to life.

What half-formed thoughts are dancing around the corner of your mind?

Grab your notebook and write down three compelling things you’d like to be different in your life, and use those as your starting place.


Believe it’s possible

Having a firm belief that you can reinvent yourself gives you a solid foundation to work from.

On those days when things feel hard, or you’re not sure how things will turn out, belief is what will carry you through.

What do you need to believe about reinventing your life to help you begin?


Admit your fear

If you’re feeling any fear or hesitancy around starting your reinvention, good news – you’re normal!

Feeling and naming the fear helps bring it into the light, where it starts to lose its hold over you.

What fears or hesitancies are you experiencing today? List them out – they won’t look as scary in the light.


Take one small step

Remember, there are no rules or supposed to’s, so you can start your reinvention when and how you’d like.

It helps to begin with the smallest of steps that can move you toward your vision. What comes first? What’s one small step you can take to begin?



Next, we’ll talk about staying on track…
