This is The Secret to Reinventing Yourself

Oct 18, 2023

Ah, success. The bullseye. Everyone thinks about what they’ll do when they finally make their fortune. And we all have a different ideas of what success means for us. It could be becoming a movie star, a business owner, a player in the NBA, or the inventor of the next big thing. No matter what you have in mind, though, I’m sure all our ideas have something in common: money. 

In relation to your five cores, though, money doesn’t play a huge role. In fact, it only counts for half of your career & finance core, which means it’s only 1/10th of the equation. And yet, when we think of success, we describe it in terms of money. We all pursue this idea of the “American Dream,” but does that contribute to your other cores? 

To rebuild your life and live it to the fullest, you must take care of all your cores. That includes your career and finances, but you can’t forget your healthy mindset, relationships, physical health, and emotional health & give back. In short, all 5 areas of life are important when it comes to reinventing yourself.

1. Dreaming big will push you out of your comfort zone.

If you're only ever comfortable with small goals, you'll never experience true growth. Sure, you might be able to achieve a few things, but you'll always wonder what could have been if you had gone for broke. When you dream big, you must take risks and venture into new territory.

This can be scary, but it's also how you learn and grow as a person. So don't be afraid to put yourself out there – it just might be the best thing you ever do. Dreaming big will push you out of your comfort zone and help you overcome limiting beliefs in your self growth journey.

2. Dreaming big will help you achieve more.

If you're constantly setting small goals, you'll only ever achieve small things. But if you start dreaming big, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities.

Sure, it might be scary to think about all the things you could achieve, but that's what makes it so exciting. When you dream big, you set your sights high and challenge yourself to accomplish great things.

When you have a dream job in mind, setting big goals and receiving positive feedback along the way can fuel your personal growth.

3. Dreaming big will make you happier.

It's been proven repeatedly that people who set large goals are happier than those who don't. That's because when you have something to strive for, you have a sense of purpose and meaning in your life.

Plus, when you achieve your big dreams, you'll be filled with a sense of pride and satisfaction that comes from knowing you accomplished something great.

So if you're looking for a way to boost your happiness, start dreaming big.

4. Dreaming big will inspire others.

When you have big dreams, you also can inspire others. When people see you going after something great, it can motivate them to do the same in their own lives.

So don't be afraid to share your dreams with others – you never know who you might inspire. And who knows, maybe one day, your big dreams will help change the world. So, dreaming big should be a part of your personal development plan.

Reinventing Yourself - Story Time

I recently received a great honor at my Alma Mater, Rollins College. I was the first recipient of the new Career Champion in Residence Award. It celebrates a graduate each year for their career success and for giving back and incorporating social value into their careers.

That day was full of panels and discussions to help students move into the real world by themselves. We did activities, and I advised about the true meaning of success. 

At the end of the day, I gave a presentation on firing on ALL cylinders and taking care of all five cores, not just the career & finance one. It felt amazing to share all my experiences over the years with the students and teach them about how I got to where I am now.

Giving back to the community is what nurtures my emotional core. It makes me feel fulfilled, and that’s why I spend so much time and effort on Moore Momentum. I feel so lucky to be able to guide people into reinventing their lives, balancing their cores, and living a truly happy life, which is what real success is. It gives me the momentum to keep giving back and keep doing more to make this world a better place.

So, If you want to live your dream life and align with your core values, consider incorporating social value into your career and find ways to give back.
