How to Keep Reinventing yourself








According to medical science, the human body completely renews itself every 7 years! 

The cornea replaces itself every 24 hours, the skin every 14 days, the blood cells every 90 days, the soft tissue every 6 months, and the dense tissue every 2-7 years.

The only cells that are as old as you are, are most of your brain cells. But then again I recently attended the lecture of a well-known neurologist who explained to us an interesting fact: the common scientific belief that we all use 5-7 % of our brain does not actually apply to mere potential, but also to the fact that the human brain is designed to last for a whooping 500 year span or even longer. 


That means that your entire body keeps reinventing itself.

Constantly and relentlessly.

Whether you like it or not,
whether you notice or not.

But wait a minute!

If the entire body is continually creating new cells, why do we still have illnesses and incurable diseases? Why are we aging and why dont we look much different, day in, day out? Why doesn’t the body just make new, healthy cells (instead of diseased or old duplicates) every time cells reproduce?

Simple.

Because the blueprint of said replacement is controlled
by you.

You.

Your thoughts and feelings and beliefs about what your body is supposed to be, look like and function
day in, day out and in the long term

You desighn, they faithfully execute your designings..

Of course, the whole process isn't controlled by your rational mind.

Noone wakes up one day and says ''hey body, I command you to age faster or get cancer a few months down the road''.


That rational part of you that controls decision making and logic simply has no inherent power to control body functions and processes like that. 

Whoever created the whole damn process knew it was too important for survival to be left in the hands of logic which  could turn so irrational and crazy at times that it has the potential to become self-destructive.

So reinvention happens in another way.. It is involuntary up to a certain extend, but follows a certain pattern that is controlled and desined by your feelings, emotions and beliefs.

But guess who controls your feelings and beliefs.
Yep, they are under your control, if only you actually care to do so.

-Your rational mind controls your thoughts-
-Your thoughts control your emotions and beliefs-
-Your thoughts emotions and beliefs control the reinventing process of your whole self, your body included.


Yes, your body keeps reinventing itself.

However, as is most often the case, it's a reinventing that you rarely get to control deliberately.

Unless you choose to do so.

Push the restart button.

Tell yourself, ''since my whole physical self keeps reinventing itself, I might as well try to assist it in the process by giving it a new, improved paradigm, a new blueprint to create upon, one more suited to my prefernces and wishes.''

How do you do that?

You do that by doing it.

You sit your ass down and decide what you want your physical and non-physical self to look like.

No matter your age. Yes, you still have time. I once met a woman online in her early sixties who decided to get braces for her teeth. I asked her how she took that decision and she told me ''In two years time I can be either dead in which case it wouldn't matter anyway,  I can be just two years older, or I can be two years older with straight teeth, so I picked the third option''.

You get to decide how you'd like to reinvent yourself. 
You decide by examining your innermost wishes 
and by making the right probing questions.

-What do I want to accomplish this year?
-How am I going to accomplish it?
-What do I need to become in order to accomplish this ?

Plan. 
Written if possible

No plan and no action= nothing accopmlished,
A plan and no action,=still nothing accomplished.
No plan and action= little accomplished.
A plan plus action= reinventing yourself

And remember -transformation doesn't have to be about something so big and auspicious that the world notices and cheers.
( though wouldn't that be fun too!)

It's not about monumental changes, it's first and foremost about how you feel with yourself and actually seeing results in your life that matter to you personally.

Happy reinventing
