Often life’s circumstances require us to make accommodations in response to changes in our work environment, personal circumstances, or our own interests and developmental needs. When we are offered such an opportunity to reinvent ourselves we are given a chance to follow our dream and create the life we want.
To transform our dreams into reality we need the courage to turn fear and doubt into hope and possibilities, followed by action and results. First we must be clear about our purpose, intension, and integrity. The next step is to turn our dream into specific projects with appropriate strategies and schedules.
