When you think of Sean Connery, you think of James Bond. Or Christopher Reeve as Superman. We all know an actor or two who has been typecast over the years as their signature character. No matter how much they try to throw off a typecast role, it’s hard for fans to see them as anything else.
Do you know that you can get typecast in your own life? When you’ve played a role for so long it can seem hard to define yourself outside of that role. What are the roles we get stuck in? It could be anything. You can feel stuck as a parent, a spouse, an employee or even as a certain type of personality. Just because that’s what you do or who you’ve been in the past, it doesn’t mean it’s who you are. Life is a journey of discovery.
Don’t let yourself get typecast into a role in your own life. We are meant to try new things, meet new people and grow. If you stay the same, you can’t do these things. There are so many different ways you can do this. It could be something simple like taking a class, going on a trip or making new friends. Or you can make a change that will change your whole life and outlook, like starting a business with SendOutCards.
