How Six Ordinary People Started New Lives


Do you have a dream? Would you like a new home? Would you like a new job? Would you like a new partner? Would you like to be wealthy?

If you want these things and you haven’t got them it means that what you’re doing now isn’t working for you. You need to do something different. You need to do what will get you what you want. Make sense?

A bricklayer I know is now a world-renowned installer of sports surfaces. He didn’t do that by continuing to lay bricks. He did it by mastering new skills.

A PA wrote a best selling novel. She didn’t do that by continuing to run her boss’s diary. She did it by writing and continuing to believe in her writing.

The manager of a booze factory is now the leading coach in career development. He didn’t do that by continuing to work in a factory. He did it by empathising with people’s desire for jobs in which they can express themselves.

A dispensing chemist is now the chief executive of a chain of hairdressing shops. She didn’t do that by continuing to dispense drugs. She did it by following her passion for fashion.

A wounded soldier discharged from the army is now the wealthy owner of a mansion house. He didn’t do that by feeling sorry for himself. He did it by finding something to which he could apply himself and then persisting with remarkable resilience.

A Trader in a large City bank became an independent plumber. She didn’t do that by sitting behind her desk dreaming of a more independent existence. She did that by taking weekend courses in plumbing, deciding that she enjoyed the work more than banking and bravely cutting her ties to the City.

All of the people mentioned above found a way to think, feel and act in new ways that got them to where they are now.

How Dreams Come True

When you listen to the stories of people who have reinvented themselves the most striking point is that there is no single right way to reinvent yourself.

Some people pursue goals relentlessly. Others just have a vague dream that keeps nudging them forward. 

Many people who make major changes in their lives do so because circumstances make their present position untenable. They change because they have to change. 

What all the stories have in common is that the people who reinvent themselves all find ways to think, feel and act in ways that get them to where they want to be.

Some people manage to make changes, to find new ways of earning a living, to move to the area of their dreams, to become wealthy, to find a more relaxed and spiritually rewarding way to live. The point to consider is this – if they can, why not you?

Maybe this is not yet quite the time for you to make a commitment. That’s fine. But if you have a hankering for a better life this is a good time to start laying foundations.
