Regardless of what you think of the controversial baby carrot, their re-packaging this last year was brilliant. Meet a reinvention:
The Baby Carrot. (click to see the bc donning a junk food look).
Obviously reinvention can run deeper and more meaningful, but, at the core of the baby carrot (click for more of the story) is a case study on how obvious and necessary change can be (many times revealing itself only after the change has been set in motion). Many times only after seeing even subtle, positive results do we realize change was worth it.
This is especially true when reinventing via thoughts or language. These are seeds that can move mountains but it’s hard to know before having experienced even a little of the mountain-moving before.
We know intention in business is essential for success and it’s not any different for our connections, maybe especially with our kids. A clear intention on what you want to grow in them (which must first be alive and growing in you) is key.
We all want to do right by them and remember we’re growing people, friends, partners and brothers. This is what makes the relationship of parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle (feel free to keep adding titles here) so important. Change is important in us because we want to breed change.
In which circumstances or with which people or small person could you re-invent yourself? Or, better yet, how could you re-invent your exit out of a thought, language or habit that might not be doing you (or the mini-me watching) much good?
how to be a walking Mantra/Momtra/Dadtra:
Watch your thoughts for they become words.
Watch your words for they become actions.
Watch your actions for they become habits.
Watch your habits for they become your character.
Watch your character for it becomes your destiny*
Reinvention. There’s only one guru ~ you.
