Bob Dylan: Reinventing Yourself

Development Beyond Success

A meaningful achievement is often the byproduct of a commitment to developing yourself. It is a willingness to try new things for the sake of growth and fun.

In the mid-1960s, right after Bob Dylan was at the height of his newfound fame, he chose to switch up his sound and added an electric guitar to the mix. Rather than exploiting his existing success, he changed gears. This change would be one of the reasons for his longevity.

Reinventing yourself

Bob Dylan is an iconic figure in 20th-century culture. His career has now spanned more than six decades. With his poetic music, he has shaped movements and genres, and he has done so while staying relevant throughout.

Fluid Identity

There is no such thing as a static identity. Like children, adults go through different stages of development. We all grow in various ways, and so do our understanding of who we are.

  • Do you worry that if you try your hardest and fail at something, you’ll be exposed as “no good”?
