Michelle Gamble-Risley is not only the owner of a business she successfully reinvented, she’s also the author of Second Bloom: 10 Steps to Reinvent, Rejuvenate and Realize a New Life. The book provides a 10-step strategic process for reinventing yourself and your life, with a particular focus on women. Here are Gamble-Risley’s top tips for reinventing yourself:
1. Define your values. “Get real about your values. You can say, ‘My family is really important to me,’ but if you’re traveling two weeks a month and working 60 or 70 hours a week… well, actions speak louder than words. Get real. What truly are your priorities, and what would you like for your life?”
2. Know what works. “Figure out what works and what doesn’t. If something’s not working, don’t hold onto it. Find a way to do what you want to do by figuring out what strategy you need to employ to make it work.”
3. Get out of your own way. “I watch lots of people chase their own tail. They’re fearful, they make excuses, there’s a lot of ‘I can’t because….’ You have to go for it and believe in yourself. If you can’t do that, then stay where you’re at.”

But, one thing still the same.. the person who is complaining. How about doing something different for once and start being the new you? Seriously, I dare you.
