How many times did you reinvent yourself in your lifetime? I’m asking this because I saw this week the new movie by Clint Eastwood the Gran Torino – and I’ve been following Clint Eastwood since his beginnings as an actor in class-B spaghetti westerns. In my book The Alchemist, Santiago, the shepherd boy, has to reinvent himself in order to get to his goal. I have also been in this situation and had to reinvent myself many times. So now I would like to know about you: How many times have you re-invented yourself and in which situations?
