Here we are already on STEP TWO of my 3 Steps to reinventing your life. If you didn’t get a chance to read last week’s great introduction to get you started, definitely go back to last Wednesday and read it over. Please feel free to weight in with your own personal stories both here on my blog and on my Facebook Group http://bit.ly/libbygillgroup-- DEFINITELY tune in each Wednesday to follow along with the discussion though – because I know one thing, getting from where you ARE to where you want to BE means getting UNstuck in a BIG way! Step 2. Address. The beginning of my real reinvention was honestly becoming willing to address the areas of my life that were lowest on the 1-10 scale. For instance, my health and self-care were very low because I worked way too many hours to factor my well being into the equation most days. And the days I did have time, I was exhausted and had a family that needed me. Another example was definitely my career. Becoming willing to address the issue of the pending job offer in a way that was HONEST and appropriate to my real goals was a huge step in my reinvention. And when I came from that place, even addressing my fear of failing and letting my family down took on a different tone. After all, what did I want to teach my children? To suffer under ten tons of “shoulds” their whole lives? Or to take the RISK to live life fully?
The other piece of addressing our lives honestly is to admit we might not have the expertise we need to implement the changes we want. That might mean finding experts to help empower and educate us to reinvent something we desperately want changed, like being overweight – or starting your own business. THIS is time to get your ducks in a row and power up! It’s where REAL things happen – where our daydreams and ideas turn into plans and achievable goals.
