The 5 Most Exciting Ways to Reinvent Yourself Before the New Year
The new year is quickly approaching, and if you didn’t like how things went this year, right now is the perfect time to reinvent yourself. You have the opportunity to remove the things around you that no longer serve you or have purpose. In this post I share the 5 most exciting ways to reinvent yourself before the new year.
How to Start Over and Reinvent Yourself
To start over you must change what’s on the inside before changing what’s on the outside. Before reinvention can begin, take some time to evaluate your perspective. Check to see how your thoughts determined your habits, which determined your actions.
Find out what shaped those negative thoughts and start looking for ways to bring in a more positive attitude. Even if you change your environment you’ll always be where you are if you don’t change your mind. Your body will quickly start to adjust to your new environment and bring in that “same ol stinking thinking”. Your perspective is crucial in reinventing yourself because it is the foundation of becoming a better you.
This exercise is the perfect start to reinventing yourself. Whatever didn’t serve you this year, can be released. Girl, out with the old and in with the new. Remember you don’t put new wine in old wineskins.
5 Exciting Ways to Reinvent Yourself Before the New Year
1. Start Making New Friends
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “You are who you hang around”. If there is anything you don’t like about yourself, check your surroundings and see if any of the people you hang with have similar qualities.
In order to reinvent yourself you should surround yourself with people who have the qualities you wish to possess. Strive to never be the smartest person in the room, so that you’ll always have space to grow. Although most people don’t like to make new friends, because it means getting to know and trust someone new, it is important to build relationship with people you can admire.
2. Change Your Style
One of my favorite ways to reinvent myself is to change up my look. I usually start with my hair. I’ve dyed my hair honey blonde, wore a pixie cut, did the big chop and so much more. Many people would probably say its mid-life crisis, I say why be like everyone else when I can be different.
Next, I change up my clothing style. You can wear colors you wouldn’t normally wear or fashion pieces that speak to the person you wish to become. If you are looking to start a business, you can start to reinvent yourself by wearing more business clothes like blazers and suits.

3. Learn a New Skill
ABL (Always Be Learning)! Learning a new skill can be a great start to your reinvention. The things around us are constantly changing and to survive this “new age” you have to continue to expand your mindset. A great way to start is by joining a platform called Skillshare. Skillshare is a membership platform dedicated to helping you learning a new skill and improve old skills. If you aren’t able to afford a premium membership program, you can also “google it”, or hop on “Youtube University”. Platforms like Google and Youtube are filled with How to’s and Tutorials on learning a new skill.
4. Read Self-Help Books
I love to read self help books. In order to improve yourself you can read books that help you to develop a better mindset to fit your new lifestyle. Reading self-help books is an affordable way to receive lifestyle coaching without breaking the bank. Don’t forget to apply what you’ve learned, otherwise you’re just reading for fun.

5. Create New Habits
Habits are what shape us into who we are. Our habits are the routines we’ve adopted over time that has determined our quality of life. I like to create new habits as a means of building a better me. Its time to reinvent yourself, why not start with creating a new routine. Take your body off of autopilot, youll be surprise what other things your mind and body can do.
Building a Better Me
In 2014, I joined a financial service marketing organization to learn more about finances. After going through the training process I realized the current people I was associating myself with didn’t know simple financial concepts, and I was simply a product of my environment. Every Saturday morning I would receive personal development training and financial coaching from someone who has made over a million dollars a year.
After 1 year of coaching I started to see a huge change in my personal development, our team grew in numbers and our finances changed as well. Every year I take a look at my goals and I check my surroundings to see if my environment is conducive for the growth I desire.
