In some phases of life, you become sick of being the same person for a long time and choose to change and become unrecognizable.
Change is necessary. Without character change and growth, you are a boring person and will stay the same.
I’m not the same person I was last year because I did things I never did all my life. I’m unrecognizable to those who knew me 10 months ago.
I’m proud of who I’m now, but I know I won’t be the same person 6 months from now. I’ll become unrecognizable to those who know me now.
Life is all about (the important things) growing, exploring yourself, people, and the world, learning, being happy, and finding your purpose.
The steps that will guide you to become unrecognizable are principles that will guide you for life.
It has nothing to do with changing your look because looks can fade away.
This new strong character will make you unrecognizable. You will see an improvement in your attitude and become charismatic.
How to become unrecognizable in 9 steps
Step 1: Master time management
You are not overwhelmed with many tasks; you are unorganized and lack time management skills.
Time is your most valuable asset. You have to use it wisely and don’t waste it doing unproductive things.
It doesn’t matter if you are a millionaire, if you are available to anyone; you lose your value.
Do this to manage your time effectively and become valuable:
- Plan your day the night before (create a To-do list)
- Wake up earlier
- set deadlines
- stick to your schedule
Do this for a week, then see how your productivity rises and how valuable you become to other people.
Just don’t be available to people when you have a task to complete. Complete your task first. You have to be selfish with your time.
You can prioritize your family, but any person other than that is a distraction.
Step 2: Focus on one goal
We all want results, but are you committed to giving 100% focus on one goal? Setting a goal isn’t that hard, but achieving it is.
If you don’t have a goal; think about that one thing that gives you instant motivation and a burning desire to work harder.
Most people give their focus to 5 different goals, then wonder why they aren’t progressing that hard.
With 100% focus, you can achieve a goal that takes a year in 6 months. Don’t underestimate the power of focus.
The reasons for that are:
- You will learn more than most people
- Work more than most people
- master a skill faster than most people
Step 3: Improve gradually
You can’t go from level 1 to level 9 with a level 1 mindset, habits
In this step, you will start noticing how you are becoming unrecognizable to most people.
You will notice this in less than 3 most. But you are not going to stop here.
Make gradual improvements:
- Start listening to 10 minutes podcast
- Start reading 3 pages
- Start doing 10 push-ups
- Start today, then make a 1% improvement each day

Step 4: Master positive self-talk
You need confidence and self-belief to transform yourself.
It doesn’t matter how many goals you achieve, if you always say negative things about yourself; you will have low self-esteem and low confidence in yourself.
Positive self-talk gets you the greatest friend you will ever have: yourself.
Even if the world looks down on you, you will still stand solid and believe in yourself. You have a supporter worth 1000 people.
Step 5: Look at things diagnostically
Problems are inevitable and will continue to come.
Here’s why you should stop complaining:
- Complaining about how bad the weather is doesn’t change it.
- Complaining about the traffic doesn’t move it.
- Complaining about how you are a loser doesn’t make you a winner.
Complaining solves nothing.
Instead of focusing on the negative, ask yourself:
- What am I in control of?
- How can I solve this?
- What can I learn here?
- How can I improve?
You will get over life’s roadblocks easily and become an unstoppable beast.
But there are problems that you can’t do anything about them, like people’s behavior and minds.
Let go of them and focus on things you can control like your attitude and reaction. This will turn you into a resilient beast that isn’t easily triggered.
Step 6: Read quality books
There are millions of books published, but not all are worth the time. Choose quality books because they have a high ROI.
The little money and time you spend on a quality book can save you from many problems and mistakes.
When you acquire knowledge and can provide value from what you learned; move to step 6.
Step 7: Create a high-value network
We are social animals and are designed to create communities for achieving higher purposes and survival.
You subconsciously adopt the mindset, perspective, and habits of your circle.
If your circle consists of hard workers, smart people, strategic thinkers, visionaries, dreamers, and open-minded people.
Be 100% sure you will get further in life and become highly successful.
Spend less time with those who bring you down and more time with those who challenge you to become a better version of yourself.
Step 8: Get into deep work
To become unrecognizable in a short period, you have to master the art of deep work.
Invest your focus on completing tasks with deep work.
- Disappear for some time
- Move to a silent environment
- Remove distractions (your phone)
- Limit your social media time
- Focus on one goal
Step 9: Find your purpose (set Life goals)
Life goals (purpose) will give you the direction you need and without it, you will join the crowd. We don’t want that for you.
Your focus increases and your path becomes clear when you know what’s next.
Your life goal can be:
- Influence people’s lives
- Improve physical health
- Introduce new technology to your society
- Travel the world
- Write a book
- Attend the Olympics
You can see more life goals here to help you set yours.
This will transform you and make you beyond unrecognizable to people who knew you one year ago.
You will gain respect, have a high-quality circle, know your direction, and inspire others in your journey. Life is too short to only live for the weekend.
You have to become unrecognizable to yourself and many people, that’s how you reach your highest potential.
