Top tips to reinvent your career

Reinventing your career can lead to true enrichment and self-actualisation. This is by no means an easy path, you have to work hard and accept all of the challenges along the way. In order to reinvent yourself, and open up a new path in your life or career, follow these key tips: 

1. Embrace the struggle 

Learn from life’s hurdles. Use productive failure as a knowledgeable asset to become successful. Struggle is what happens in the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Stick with it and on the other side you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for.

2. Ask why?

With each of your goals, ask yourself why? It is important to make sure that everything you do has a purpose. When you come to an understanding of why you are doing something, you will be able to shift the outcome in your favour.

Reinventing your career gives the chance to step outside of your comfort zone, perhaps try something different and take a new direction

3. Reinvent yourself through change

Determine a pathway to a better place and take charge of your own career. If you cannot get there yourself, speak up and share your ideas with others to grow and receive help along the journey. We all have this in-built immunity to change so we should all try something that scares us, something that challenges us, in order to overcome our fears and make way for success.

4. Set up realistic goals and make a plan

One of the first steps is to look at yourself and see where you want to go. What goals do you want to achieve? How will I reach these?

Consider creating a career plan that will outline where you are currently, where you want to be and how you will get there. Set targets that are achievable so it does not bring frustration which could result in discouragement. Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself.
