What does it take to reinvent yourself? Perhaps a better question to start with is, why would you even want to? Sure, maybe you wouldn’t mind shedding a few pounds. Perhaps a bit less stress would be nice too … and no doubt you’d be happy to have a little more free time in your life. But these things surely don’t require a complete personal overhaul, do they?
Nobody is perfect. The main point of our lives here on this earth is not even to attain perfection. It is to learn through our experiences and to use that wisdom to grow, to evolve, and to make changes for the better.
Now that is something that we can all definitely do, can’t we? So why do we often have such a hard time doing it?
Because we get stuck in a rut; stuck in a routine way of thinking and acting.
For instance, you’ve probably driven the exact same route to work everyday for the past five years and never given it a second thought.
What happens, though, when there is road construction one day and you’re forced off of your usual course? Frustration? Anxiety?
Do you get downright upset?
Maybe it made you late for work, but that’s not the point here. The point is that there are probably several different ways for you to arrive at your destination on time, but you’ve gotten stuck on one specific route, and you just don’t like to veer from it.
In effect, that’s exactly how we live most of our lives. We’ve gotten used to typical ways of doing things and usual ways of viewing things, and that keeps us from seeing all the infinite possibilities we have all around us in each and every moment.
