Reflection | TRANSFORMATION
How often do you feel stuck? Recently, I have noticed that I am often in situations where I feel like I have to wait for things to get better. I realized that I was handing over the reins of my life to someone else or a situation rather than taking control myself and therefore I was unable to change, move forward or transform.
We can and should always be growing - we all know the person we could be if we put our minds to it. I don’t think there is anyone who being true themselves could say, “That’s it - I’m done. I am a completed work!”
At LIVEmpowered, we don’t believe anyone is stuck in their circumstances or with the aspects of themselves that they are less fond of. There is always a step we can take to make a change even if it is something small or takes time. We want transformation, change, growth for everyone we come into contact with but especially for those who are really struggling. For some, the biggest and most beautiful transformations come out of the darkest and most broken times.
The first step is believing that change is possible - that with a little effort and action things can be different. There is an unattributed quote that is making its way around the internet that says, “You are always one decision away from a totally different life”. It’s true - transformation starts with a decision - I am going to do this differently. Then it is a ripple effect - not just in our lives but in the lives of those around us too. Profound change for ourselves and for the world happens one step at a time.
There isn’t a perfect end destination either - it is an everyday decision to do and think differently - small actions, words and decisions each and every day that will come together over time to bring transformation. Mistakes are part of the process - we learn from them and become stronger because of them.
Life is a moving, breathing thing. We have to be willing to constantly evolve. Perfection is constant transformation.
They say it takes 30 days to form a habit and once that habit is embedded - it’s transformation. What small thing can you start today that will become transformation for you?
