Our instincts drive us towards growth and, as we mature and develop experience, we must surely find new kinds of stimulus and inspiration if we are not to get bored with ourselves.

Maybe you think that this doesn’t apply to you; you are perfectly content with no need to change. Or you are insecure and don’t want to rock the boat… so you prefer to leave things as they are. Worst case scenario? You see yourself as dull and unimaginative, a fixture in your own life, and devoid of the initiative it takes to approach life creatively.

Even if one of these applies to you and you are happy to go on as you are, it can happen that fate or circumstance can take a hand; someone else can decide that you have outlived your usefulness, or that what you do is no longer needed.

Rather than finding out by chance that you are fading away or past your shelf-life, why not take the initiative by doing something new. For example:

  • Enrol in a course of study
  • Start a new hobby
  • Re-train and change your career path or job
  • Stretch yourself with a new challenge
  • Commit to a project that’ll give you a sense of self-worth
  • Go on a retreat.

The list could go on, but it’s not about what you decide to do, but that you recognise that you could do it.

Consider re-designing yourself, change will happen anyway.
