“When you are content to be simply be yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”—Lao-Tzu
“When I let go of who I am, I become who I might be.”–Lao Tzu
The first step in the change process is to let go of the familiar and comfortable. While you are holding onto who you are and have been for as long as you can remember, it’s impossible to move forward to who you really want to be. Reinventing yourself means challenging the beliefs you believe about yourself and your limitations. They were probably installed by well-meaning people but when you examine them under the microscope, you can see they no longer serve you.
