The purpose and mission for Keola Birano ReImagined is simple. I want to help people take control of their lives. Based on my personal experience and education I’ve come up with 3 simple steps.

  1. Reflect
  2. Live Congruent
  3. Constantly Change

1. What does it mean to reflect?

Before you can start taking control of your life you need to first reflect on your current situation. This means taking an inventory of every aspect of your life. From your job to the friends you hang out with you need to ask yourself an important question. “Does my life truly reflect who I am or who I want to be?” This is an important question to answer because if it’s “no” you have to make a decision. Do I live congruently?

2. What does it mean to live congruent?

It means living your life on your terms. Mindfully choosing a path that you want to pursue based on your values, passions and desires. I’ve lived a majority of my life for the approval of others. When I’ve been faced with a decision that I think will disappoint or offend I would usually suppress my feelings. This would inevitably lead to a battle with depression. Living congruently is what brought me out of my depressing state. By becoming congruent you’ll find that life will have more meaning and that obstacles that once felt like mountains will become speed bumps toward your goals. You will no longer give others the power to control your life but instead you’ll take responsibility for your success and failure.

3. What does it mean to constantly change?

Once you reflect and strive to live congruently you need to periodically ask yourself this question, “Is what I’m doing still bringing me happiness?” Throughout our lives we are constantly evolving because of the experiences that we have. Life happens so whether it be losing a child or graduating from college we are constantly changing. Nothing stays the same which means the things that once brought us happiness may one day become burdensome. So if that day comes are you going to change or for whatever reason live the status quo. I hope you choose to make a change. Don’t live a life just because. Change is a part of life and once we accept that we can move forward and find new ways to bring joy into our lives. Everyone deserves to be happy in this life.

Keola Birano ReImagined will serve as a record of my fight to take control of my life. To live a life based on my values, passions and desires. Through living what I preach I hope to inspire others to do the same. Please feel free to try these steps and let me know if it works for you.
