Stage 2: Mindset

Optimize Your Reinvention

Beyond the tactical level of reinvention—the actual tasks you perform to execute your plan—lies another equally critical aspect—what you think and believe, and how you feel about what you’re trying to create.

When it comes to reinvention, your mindset matters as much as your action plan. If you don’t get your head right, making the change you crave is like trying to drive with your parking brake on: lots of effort for minimal progress.

Banish Your Myths and Manage Your Fears

Myths are subconscious beliefs or unrealistic ideas that block you from moving forward. They either force your dreams to carry too much weight (“my life will be perfect once I’m out of this job”), or they cause you to limit your opportunities (“no one over the age of 40 gets hired”).

Fear, on the other hand, is a biological response that we, as humans, are hard-wired to feel. In your reinvention journey, you’ll need to learn how to manage and partner with your fears vs. trying to master them.

Give Yourself Permission

Giving yourself permission to pursue what you want is critical before you can go out and make it happen. Although you might think this happens automatically—“Of course it’s okay to go for what I want!”—the minute you start envisioning a new lifestyle, from the depths a question will arise: Is it okay?

Reinvention requires you to write yourself permission slips that make it okay to want what you want and to have what you want.

Set Aside Your Excuses

Excuses are very enticing! They deliver an escape hatch that provides you with the perfect “reason” for avoiding or delaying the discomfort of change.

To be successful in this journey, though, you have to want to reach your reinvention goal more than want to hold on to your excuses. When you give up excuse-making, it forces you to step into your creativity, solve challenges, and grow.
