FULL TRANSCRIPT

Hey it’s Rand,

The essence of reinvention is change, which is what makes it such a challenging thing to do.

But it is also what makes it so worthwhile.

Mahatma Gandhi was a master of the art of fierce reinvention and he summed up why it is so important for us to embark on this journey when he said,

“We need to be the change that we want to see in the world.”

Reinvention is about breaking out of our comfort zone,

Reinvention is about breaking the trance that keeps us locked into behaviours that don’t serve us and those around us.

Doing so fiercely involves removing our self-deceptions and confronting our fears, head on.

One of our biggest fears is around difficult conversations.

You know the ones I mean.

Think about your business and personal interactions over the last 2 years.

How many fierce conversations can you recall?

We need to break free from our fears and be fierce, with ourselves, with our relationships, and with our businesses.

Every time that you are guarded in your approach you are postponing the conversation that wants and needs to be taking place.

What conversations are you keeping bottled up inside?

What are you avoiding saying that needs to be said?

What are you saying that no one is hearing?

And the opposite, What is being said that you are not hearing?

Think on these questions.

Really think deeply on them, swirl them around in your head, come back to them again and again.

Your first answer may not be your true answer.

This is about asking the unaskable, saying the unsayable, and hearing the unheard.
