Stop Searching for Yourself, Invent Yourself

Stop Searching for Yourself, Invent Yourself

And if rather than searching for yourself in something else, you invent yourself?

If you’re tired of being represented by a job that you don’t like, if you want to change and to stop playing around, if you don’t manage to find what you want, start to re-invent yourself now. 

—Start

Now it’s ti me to think about how to grow yourself up!

Since adolescence we are pushed by the desire for research: searching for a twin soul, searching for ourselves, what we are and that what we want and could be, pushed by grit and the desire to do so.

When we grow up this desire tends to weaken, we accept jobs that we don’t like because they make you think “better this than nothing.”

But is it really like this?

Life is not finding yourself. Life is creating yourself

[G. B. Shaw]

The perfect job seems like a utopia, so often we content ourselves with simply finding work. Our “applications” multiply, we jump from one company to the next, from one sector to another, and we stop only when we sense stability.

We allow one job to define who we are, even when that job doesn’t represent us.

And if rather than searching for ourselves in something else, we invent ourselves?

What I envy about children is the fantasy and the extreme positivity, the ability to think about being able to become anything: a princess, an astronaut, a soccer player or a veterinarian.

And so why not do it even as adults? 

Advice 01
Create your destiny

Don’t let what others are dictate the rules.

Create your system with your rules and find a way to make it work, and if you can’t succeed in something, don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s possible that you’ll think you’re not able, but you can do more than you think you can.

Our future depends only on ourselves.

Advice 02
Leave a mark

Often monotony culminates in carrying out one’s job in a robotic and ordinary manner. Therefore you have to leave your mark, show off your best work.

Take advantage of opportunities to make you and your ideas known, challenge yourself to follow what you truly want to do. 

Don’t wait for total acceptance of your ideas, prepare yourself to be pushed, but don’t fall, and even if you must fall, be ready to get back up.

Advice 03
Don’t be afraid to fail

Don’t be afraid to trip.

The most important thing in every journey is the courage to embark again and continue.

There are innumerable stories of entrepreneurs that have failed many times but have followed their dreams even in the middle of obstacles.

Don’t be afraid to fail, if you fail, fail quickly and continue on, but whatever happens don’t give up on your biggest dreams. 

Thoughts like “no one will like it,” “my friends will think that I’m insane,” can be discouraging, but one needs to stay tough and think positive. You don’t have to be right, you only have to start.

Fear is profound only when the mind allows it to be

Advice 04
Be devout and persevere

It takes time, devotion, perseverance, and patience to make something that’s worthwhile.

Keep doing what you love, even if no one buys it, sponsors it, or shares it. It’s important to establish a reputation, continue to try.

Bring your work forward, even when you don’t get the desired approval. Choose yourself!

I’ll close with a phrase I believe in very much, that I take energy from every day:

Wake up and live like your future self is watching you!

5 advice for becoming future CEOs ourselves

5 advice for becoming future CEOs ourselves

Here are my 5 pieces of advice for becoming future CEOs ourselves. 

In a chaotic world where professional life is no longer one voyage organized amongst many, nor is it destiny, everyone has to become responsible for their own future.

—Start

How? By learning first and foremost to know oneself, to value oneself, to interpret one’s own attitudes and to plan one’s own strategies for growth and professional development.

Knowing oneself, knowing exactly what one does and does not want, paves the way for us to become CEOs ourselves.

The voyage towards the discovery of ourselves is not trivial, over time our wishes and desires may change, but it’s really the way in which we react to those changes that defines who we are and, if we remain positive and proactive, we will reap the benefits of every sacrifice.

“The climb is difficult, but when you arrive at the top the view is amazing”

There are people that, since they were children, knew exactly what they wanted to be in the future and people that, after university, find themselves with thousands of doubts and uncertainties.

With these 5 tips we will try to plan our future together, beginning from within ourselves.

Advice 01
Take a moment to reflect

Every day we should stop and reflect on our day.

Did we miss out on a large or small opportunity? Did someone steal our thunder? Did we let a friend choose a film that, in reality, we didn’t want to see?

We have to take charge of the things that happen to us, without reacting negatively and pessimistically. If we want to succeed, we have to first take our life into our own hands.

Our future depends only on ourselves.

Advice 02
Believe in ourselves

Believing in ourselves is a step that’s as necessary as it is fundamental. If we don’t believe in ourselves, who will?

So when we enter a room or we meet a new person, our self-confidence has to shine. First impressions are fundamental.

Let’s flash a dazzling smile, not a forced one, but a genuine smile, let’s shake hands with the person that’s in front of us, looking them in the eye.

We have to be fans of ourselves, so that we can affirm every day: “I always believed I could do it.”

Advice 03
Plan our future

And so, we have arrived at the most important and delicate step: planning.

Personally, I find the advice from Chris Guillebeau, author of “The $100 startup”, the most useful. He shares an annual review on his blog, explaining the method he uses to keep the balance between his personal and professional life.

His idea is that of creating a road map containing all of the goals that he intends to reach, explained in a detailed manner, subdividing objectives into stages and establishing the necessary time it takes to reach every stage.

We can also take advantage of web apps that, thanks to interactive dashboards, allow us to keep the goals we wish to reach and the results that we are obtaining under control.

And if these goals have to undergo some changes?

We don’t have to fall into a panic. Things don’t always go according to plan and changing course is part of the process. Therefore it’s important to not get discouraged and to instead fixate on new goals.

Advice 04
Act

If we can’t manage to see the door that will lead us to success, let’s build one ourselves, acting in the name of our goals.

To win one has to start.

Let’s list out the paths to follow to reach our goals, making them as tangible as possible. A goal reached with success will give us the strength to reach the next one, and so on.

Once in motion, all paths will be a gift because every correct or incorrect path will give us new knowledge and abilities.

Advice 05
Achieve our goals

The moment of making our goals concrete has arrived. The key word is diligence. One needs to be ready to pay for our personal and professional growth.

Let’s study the lives of businessmen that we admire, let’s read their books, participate in seminars, if we need to, let’s hire a coach that helps us to achieve our goals.

There are endless numbers of self-strategies, adaptable to every type of person.

Make sure that any goal that you set for yourself is something you truly believe in, that is not imposed on you externally by social conventions or those who think they know what’s best for you.

Decompose your goal into small, everyday actions that will bring you towards your objective and work hard to do them consistently.

I’m positive that it will be worth it.
