Change.  It’s not a word to fear, but rather an idea to consider…often.


To reinvent is to change.  Give yourself permission to change any time your situation doesn’t feel like the right fit.  This imperfect fit might be the people you hang around with.  It could be your attitude about your future.  This imperfect fit might be the choices you’ve been making and the negative outcomes they’ve resulted in.

As we move closer to the beginning of a brand new year, setting the intention to improve yourself could be the beginning of a brand new you. Yes, it could be that easy. You can reinvent yourself at any moment you choose.  I live by this idea and encourage you to do the same.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself.  You can always start over and create something else, something closer to your highest potential.  Consider it an upgrade.  No one limits the number of choices you get.  That’s entirely up to you.  This is what Be Unlimited is all about.

Here’s the mistake too many people make.  They focus on exterior changes, meaning that they change the clothes they wear or how they style their hair.  The most important changes start on the inside.  Changing your mind is the first step.

You are what you think.  That’s why setting intentions is so important.  The word intention means to stretch towardHaving an intention is putting energy into something that you one day want to be, do, or see happen in your life.  It’s setting a goal.  It’s making a plan.  You are never too young to set intentions for your life.  Why not start today?

There are many things that can challenge your intentions— believing that failures are permanent, that mistakes cannot be erased, etc.  Sometimes your mind can conjure up (what might seem like) many good reasons to doubt yourself and even question your potential.

I have dealt with this at times in my own life.  It helps to have an intention, goal, or plan for your life that’s bigger than any doubt or fear that attempts to make you rethink it.  You have to want something bad enough that you push through anyway.

I have started many projects in my life that were challenged by doubts and the fear of failure.  What kept me going?  I focused on what I wanted to accomplish in such a way that I was able to visualize it.  I thought about how it would feel to achieve what I wanted.  I considered how it would make me a better person.  Finally, I thought of how reinventing myself would benefit other people.  When I set out to create Be Unlimited, I did all of those things.  Changing my mind was the first step.

A new mindset is something you have to build over time.  It takes more than one day to do it.  Every time you make a positive improvement in yourself, accomplish a goal, bounce back from a disappointment, or solve a problem, it gets stronger.  If you’re reading this right now, your mindset is already getting better.

You can reinvent yourself.  You can change your life.  You really are unlimited.

  2. This is really valuable advice! Especially at this time of year.

    I think, when it comes to external changes, the ones we make in order to avoid our parents’ mistakes are perfect examples of this. I’ve known many men who didn’t want to turn out like their fathers so they… didn’t grow out their facial hair. Women who didn’t want to turn out like their mothers so they… wore their hair differently.

    When we see our families this season, it’s the perfect opportunity to be compassionate towards them, look at them in full authenticity, and really ask ourselves what we see that we want to keep and what we don’t want to keep. I feel like that sort of mindset where we keep what we want for ourselves and discard that which harms us is really adaptive. And quite simple after a while!
