The Reinvention Mindset

By: Lori McDowell


So many of us are thrown obstacles in life, work, and our day to day. These obstacles throw us off, cause frustration and make us feel as if we aren’t in control. But people you will meet in The Reinvention Mindset, people like Dominique, Amber, Leisa and even myself, have realized they have much more control. They can’t change what happened, but they can change how they react. They choose to reinvent themselves. They can turn obstacles into opportunities, tragedy into triumph. This book is for anyone seeking to do the same.

Nearly everyone thinks that when something bad or traumatic happens to us that it is a disaster, something truly negative. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The traumatic event can be the chance for growth, for a new beginning. The Reinvention Mindset explores this concept.

This book is for those who want to take control of their. It is for people who are ambitious, but stuck, whether they be managers, mid-career professionals or young & goal-oriented people just starting out in life and careers. It is also for those starting something new or ready to make a change, aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners, those wanting to switch careers, or those who just want a more fulfilling life. And it is for those who experienced something tragic, a loss, something that damaged their self-esteem or their belief that the world is a joyful place, and they can’t get over it. This book will help you move on, get past, not just survive but actually thrive.

Yet this book is not just another self-help book. It will be entertaining and will make you laugh. At times, it might make you cry. We will have conversations and will share stories and examples from my life and those I have met. It won’t give you a step-by-step plan and it won’t give you all the answers.

It will introduce you to the Reinvention Mindset and show you why you should and how you can take back control of your life. It will empower you to become the person you always knew you could be, without waiting for a tragedy to force your hand. And hopefully it will start you on the path to fulfillment.
