I’m a strong believer that the concept of originality is dead.
There is no such thing as a truly original idea anymore.
Sorry to burst your bubble but it’s true.
Many go in search of that “original” idea that will guarantee success.
Well, since there is no such thing as an original idea and success is subjective many set themselves up to fail.
Focussing on an authentic idea and then coupling it with constant improvements and reinvention could lead you to success. Sitting tight and comfy at the top spot can lead to complacency and blindness.
Change is constant, it happens around us all the time.
You may be resisting change without even realising.
Finding inspiration and making it work
Where you find inspiration is irrelevant. WHAT you do with it is what matters.
Some are inspired by music, some by exercise, some by TV – no channel is better than the other. It’s what WORKS for you and how you apply that to your business.
Keep being inspired. Keep searching and keep channeling that into your work. Nothing is ever constant.
Reinventing yourself is a constant process
Do you remember the day you first opened your Twitter account? Do you remember your first tweet?
How does that fit with what you are doing today? Chances are you’ve changed your avatar a few times, probably changed your twitter handle if you are like me a few times, updated your bio repeatedly.
Because you were tweaking, improving, and growing. The changes are all part of reinventing yourself.
I don’t care where you came from, it’s where you are going that matters
Where you’ve come from should be a paragraph. Where you are going should be a book; one with goals and plans.
We all love talking about ourselves and celebrating our triumphs and successes but looking back will only keep you in the past.
Change is happening everyday, why aren’t you?
There is something new coming out everyday.
New tools, new ideas, new methods, new analytics, even new criterias for ranking websites.
Being an ostrich will not make an issue, a challenge or a topic go away.
Change happens. It will happen again. Now YOU need to make changes.
Without change nothing happens, actually, things get stagnant.
If you keep doing the same exercise routine every week you will eventually stop seeing results.
How is that any different when it comes to your business?
If you aren’t going to do it, someone else will.
Competition is something that will always keep things fun, fresh and challenging.
We need to be kept on our toes. Getting complacent and comfortable are mortal sins when it comes to business.
With social media it’s becoming even more challenging.
I guarantee that if you are NOT prepared to reinvent yourself and make changes regularly someone will catch you up and take over your market share.
Yes. It’s true.
Do you think reinventing yourself is important?
