People reinvent for different reasons: to get a better life, to be more respected, to make more money, to be happier, to get a stronger body, to find a better relationship, to know God, or to make life more interesting.

If your ears perk up when you hear about the lawyer who gave it all up to become a fashion designer or the auditor who ditched her accounting firm to start her own pet clothing company, and you wonder how they did it – reinvention is the answer.

If you are curious about what is typical and what is rare among the cases you have seen – the person who yearns for change but remains stuck or the person leaves it all for something completely different – you’re ready for a reinvention!

We’ve all heard of or known people who have ditched their successful careers, given up the stability of the life they’ve created and switched gears to go in a new direction and become something or someone else. It’s not easy nor is it safe, but it’s a way get back on track and pursue our unfulfilled dreams and potential.

It always inspires me when I hear about some lawyer who became an animal activist. But, you've got to be brave and you've got to have some money behind you.

Nice comercial form a for profit guru. "Reinvent" slick jargon for 'adapt'. As in adapt or stay unhappy, adapt to the fact that living life never leaves you the same person you were, your goals and priorities are not the same as before marriage, parenthood, less maturity. And consider that trying to reinvent your self into an impracticle or impossible new you will simply leave you more unhappy.
