[Music] hey thanks for joining me today for this episode of curves welcome a podcast about facing and embracing the curves of life if this is your first time tuning in this is Suzie Carr do you sometimes struggle to make progress in your life today I’m going to share four ways to help you reinvent yourself and live a more fulfilling life first let’s talk about why we crave progress in the first place even those who are viewed as highly successful crave more it’s human nature to want more for ourselves and to live the most purposeful and fulfilling life possible we want to make sure that our actions make sense and have meaning no one dreams of staying stagnant of never experiencing something new of sitting on the sidelines and watching everyone we love and care about experience life without us partaking – this world is full of opportunities to explore and to sit idle seems like an awfully big waste of potential fun excitement and knowledge – progress requires that we let go of what is known and be willing to change change can be hard for many of us it’s a scary prospect to take a leap into something new especially if you’re comfortable with where you are the question then becomes what are you missing out on by not taking that leap if the answer is compelling enough you’ll find yourself yearning for the change and unable to settle happily until you do many of us crave to do more in life we have this itch to experience life in a new and refreshing way but of course with every risk comes uncertainty that we face a new challenge or opportunity we have a choice essentially we can stay rigid or become fluid here’s the thing to keep in mind everything in life is temporary so even if you’re comfortable with where you are today it won’t be the same in the future everything changes whether we want it to or not it’s no different than a sand castle when I set out to write my novel sand castles I did so wanting to embrace the temporary nature of life and illustrate why reinventing one’s life can be so liberating and empowering you see sand castles are temporary trying to build them into a permanent structure is an impossible dream they fall down quickly with little warning the comfort comes when one realizes that when they crumble and fall back into the sea they become the foundation for something else in the waiting so essentially one of the smartest things you can do when it comes to personal development is to seek ways you can reinvent yourself reinventing doesn’t mean that you must change your life drastically it simply means you find new ways to keep yourself engaged with life so it remains stimulating forward-thinking and full of new experiences to keep you fresh and dynamic and more flexible to life’s temporary and ever-changing ways it’s human nature to resist change we all do it at points in life you’ll find yourself gripping the status quo in those moments to break free and slip into a more conducive fluid state simply ask yourself what can I do in this moment to get past this what am I missing out on by not opening up to something new can I shake things up today what small action can I do in the next hour that will teach me something new here are a few things to keep in mind firstly the world never stops moving around you so to stay rigid forces you into a position of vulnerability secondly when you open to fluidity you free yourself to experience the ride sometimes this ride is going to whip your hair around and blind you sometimes it’s gonna take your breath away other times it’s going to introduce you to people places and things that you never knew thirdly when you allow yourself to reinvent you’re saying yes to the risks and rewards that only can be experienced through transformation so hopefully I’ve encouraged you to explore this whole reinventing yourself concept and if I have piqued your interest and you do crave a few tips to help you reinvent well I’m gonna share those with you now first visualise your ideal future unquestionably something magical happens when you close your eyes and place yourself in your most ideal scene maybe that’s sitting in a chair on the beach with your toes soaking in the water or perhaps it’s leading a team of colleagues into a purposeful venture it could be holding your new child for the first time or petting your fur baby surprisingly when you allow yourself to dream this way you learned what makes your heart sing specifically you grasp hold of those things in life that really matter to you by visualizing your future this way you also get to enjoy the emotions of being right there experiencing it for all the gifts that it offers whether you’re in a good or a bad situation right now change can be a good thing be the driver of that change by taking a few moments each day to write your story put yourself in it and enjoy the journey you’re more apt to move towards something that you love when you do this so why not offer yourself that little nudge a second idea is to create a visual display of how you’d like to reinvent yourself what would this consist of is it a new job if so find images of such a role cut them out and pin them to a corkboard do you see yourself living abroad if so go to Pinterest and find images of your ideal location and pin them to your board whatever you wish in life find a picture that represents it pin it and look at it often overall think of this board as your wish book and then place your order own it a third idea is to create a list the best way to get anywhere in life is to take action towards it what do you need to do to transform your life if you want to change careers what kind of training will you need put that on your list if you want to live a healthier lifestyle perhaps exercise is a task to add to that list be sure to frame your list items as action steps that are simple and doable in other words avoid general statements like exercise more because that’s not going to do anything instead make the item more concrete workout three times a day for 20 minutes a fourth idea is to continue to revisit your ideal transformation continue to close your eyes and place yourself in that ideal scene take in the view the tastes the smells eventually the more you do the more connected and committed you will be remember change is a continual process and can be beneficial when you actively participate in its projection so let me turn this over to you now if you could reinvent one thing about your life what would that be hey friends thanks for spending time with me today first
