The Part You Play in Your Transformation

Are you willing to change?

To change is to give a completely different form or appearance to; to transform.

In the past year, I’ve seen some dramatic changes. I’ve started consulting part-time, I’ve started a new blog and I’ve begun life coaching. You see, I’m a big believer that if I want things to change around me, then I have to change first. I’m at the cause of my results. If I change then my world will change too.

In the past 12 months I’ve seen some drastic changes occur in my life. I’ve created new ways to speak, think and act. I’ve created new habits, new skills and made new friends. I’ve even found a new career.

Reflecting back over the past 5 years, I’ve realized some even greater changes. I proposed and married Trisha, started new relationships with my new mom, dad, and brother. I’ve transformed the relationship with my dad and the people in my family.

I’m not the only one unique to change. You are also evolving and changing. And your changing because you are energy. You’re a continuous wave of transforming energy.

The movement of energy throughout the world is dynamic and changing all the time. Energy and change are never static. If there is one constant in the world it is change.

When a young child is growing you can easily see and identify with their physical changes. You can see their feet and hands get larger, their muscles grow and their body structure change.

Physical Change

When we look at change from a biological point of view, we can see that the human body is changing and evolving all the time. If you were to take an inventory of all the cells in your body one year ago and compare those cells to the ones you have today, you would discover that 100% of your old cells have been replaced. In effect you have created an entirely new body. This is a scientific fact.

Your cells are continuously splitting and developing new cells to further your progress and development. In one year you’ve successfully created entirely new organs, bones and tissue. You are continually changing and evolving as a human being. If there is one constant in the world, it is change.

Change Your Mind

Thoughts change too. Attitudes and ways of thinking are continuously evolving. And these changes are at the root of your core values and beliefs.

You may have a different attitudes towards money than you have in the past. You may have a different attitude towards relationships than you have in the past. You may think differently about your health and well being than you have in the past. If there is one constant in the world, it is change.

Purpose of Change

The purpose of change is to grow and become more. Change is required to evolve as a human being in order to fully express yourself. By becoming more you can be, do and have more. By being, doing and having more you are able to express yourself to your fullest capacity.

The Universe and everything in it has a natural tendency to expand – and you’re either going with or against this expansion.

If change is so natural and a part of who we are then why don’t more people change? Is it really that hard to change or do we make it hard for ourselves?

Why People Don’t Change

People do not change because they keep focusing on the past. If you keep focusing on the past, then you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten. If you start focusing on the experiences you want to have in the present and in the future you will start to manifest those changes into your life.

As we stroll into the new year and you think about what you want to be, do and have, ask yourself this important question: Are you willing to change?

    Yes change starts with a choice which is often the hardest part because of the fear of the unknown, but if we embrace change then good things seem to always follow, at least that’s the experience I’ve had.

    Making a choice or decision is the hardest part!!!

    – which is why most people don’t do it – they would rather sit on the fence. The problem is that sitting on the fence really starts to hurt ;)

    PS – I love your T-shirt Ted.
