It goes without saying, that we all have had moments in our life where we felt stuck and feeling like nothing will change or improve. When you have those moments, its time to break free from the old patterns that are keeping you trapped in your past and having no movement.
I too, have felt that way and for the past three years I have been on a journey, this journey has been all about TRANSFORMATION.
Believe me it is a process that takes time and work. It requires you to be so very intentional and consistent in your efforts to change.
Transformation is not something that happens overnight or even in a few months, it takes time to truly transform your life into what you want it to look like.
One key element of transformation is to truly embrace who you are and when you do, your life will become immeasurably more brilliant.
It was when I started to embrace the new me in the present, and focus on my vision and use my gifts and talents more intentional — that is when things started to change for me.
And, that is what I want you to do. Really take some time to evaluate who you are now and embrace the new you, you want to be.
Know that transformation is not an overnight process, but when you start to recognize what makes you unique, it gives you the confidence to face challenges and obstacles head on. Know that your abilities are special and just waiting for the right opportunity to flourish in new ways.
Embracing and accepting who you are is also one of the most important steps towards transformation success. It’s easy for many people to get caught up in what they think others might think about them or how they should act, but it’s crucial that we make sure our actions align with our values and beliefs at all times — otherwise there will be a disconnect between who we want to be as individuals versus how others perceive us as human beings.”
Once you know your strengths nothing can stop you. You can use your strengths to help others, change, transform, and accelerate in life and achieve their goals.
Remember that you have a powerful purpose. Your passions ignite your purpose and you are what you are good at. Understanding your strengths is very important, and when you don’t know your strengths, then it is difficult for you to increase the value of yourself, create a positive change and make progress in life. In order to transform, accelerate in life, and achieve success, you need your innate talents and abilities first because they are the foundation of success.
When you embrace who you are and use those strengths and talents — you will begin to see opportunities everywhere and begin to take advantage of them. You will constantly looking for ways to use your gifts and talents in the service of others. You know that if you do not take advantage of these opportunities, someone else will.
A few years ago, I read a book called “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George Clason. The premise of this book teaches straightforward lessons that aim to show that the secrets to wealth building are unchanging and remain applicable throughout history. The book also explained how “opportunity cost” can be used as an excuse or reason why we don’t do something—but it shouldn’t be!
I shared that with you to highlight that life is short, and no matter where you are in life if you can work hard, learn from your mistakes — you can be successful.
When you work on transforming yourself you can propel yourself towards a greater purpose. Transformation will pull you towards something bigger than yourself. You will be on a path that is fulfilling and going towards your destiny — and before you know it, your life is more meaningful
The first step in transforming in life is setting goals and creating plans for their achievement. When we set a goal, we align ourselves with that objective by creating an action plan of how we intend to achieve it. This helps us stay focused on what we want instead of being overwhelmed by all that could go wrong during the process of getting there! We also need to be intentional about our actions as well as persistent throughout each day, despite any setbacks or obstacles that may get in our way (and believe me—there will be some!).
Know that great things happen when you are intentional about life!
If you want to be more intentional about life, the initial step is to take a look at your gifts and talents. Think about what you are good at doing, and how that can help others. Knowing yourself is half the battle in life! Next, make sure that you embrace who you are. If you don’t like yourself, or if there are parts of your personality or appearance that bother or embarrass you, then consider learning how to accept those things about yourself (and other people) so that they don’t get in the way of becoming successful in life. Finally, look for opportunities everywhere—not just on television shows or online advertisements but also at work events or during conversations with friends and family members. Embrace these opportunities by taking advantage of them as often as possible!
Once these three steps have been taken care of successfully then all else becomes easier:
Life is full of opportunities and you are the one who chooses which ones to take advantage of. It’s easy to get caught up in our daily lives and miss out on these opportunities, but when you can see them with fresh eyes everyday then there is no limit to what you can do. Take the time to look back at where your life has been and where it will go because it’s all about transforming as you grow and go in live and live in the moment!
