Everyone is looking for The Secret to Success, The Secret to a Happy Life, The Secret to a Successful Relationship, The Secret to a Sexy Body, or The Secret to Something! Well, I’m pretty sure that by now we’ve all come to the logical realization that THERE IS NO SECRET! It’s just good old fashion hard work that’s going to allow us to achieve any of the goals we seek.
Yet if there was one word that keeps popping into my head over the past year it’s…REINVENTING!
As I look at my life and all the wonderful experiences I’ve had, all the challenges that come with living, and the changes that have taken place in the world, I’ve come to realize the Rules of The Game have constantly changed. And that the most successful people playing The Game have been able to adjust and reinvent themselves to not just survive but thrive! Let’s take a look at just a few who you might recognize.
Tony Bennett, one of the legendary singers of the 20th century, who today at 87 years old is more popular now and with a larger generational following than he’s ever had. Here is a guy who was a contemporary of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and today has virtually every young singer in the business wanting to record with him. What’s he got besides a great talent? A consistency to live with passion, to utilize his God-given gifts and a willingness to REINVENT himself to a new generation of fans and give inspiration to his countless fans and to a young generation of entertainers.
Rod Stewart, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer (who surprisingly survived that era), one of the best selling artists of all time, and has become the epitome of the classic crooner, interpreting songs from The Great American Song Book ( music of the 20’s through the 50’s) as well as his rock genre songs. Here’s a guy who loves his craft, recognizes the gifts he has to give and has REINVENTED himself and survived thyroid cancer at the same time. Oh by the way he had to re-learn how to sing and is active in raising money for The City of Hope Foundation.
The list of people who have reinvented themselves goes on and on and we admire those people don’t we? But what about you? Is it time to take a serious look at yourself and begin to say “I AM REINVENTING MYSELF!”. I believe REINVENTION is truly The Key to all of our futures. No longer can we blindly continue to play in The Game of Life by following an archaic rule book that has long been out of print!
