In thinking about the topic for today’s email, I googled positivity and came up with 52,300,000 responses.
That is a lot of information.
If you had the time to go through and read all the articles and posts, would it make you more positive?
We can read books about cooking, eat a lot of food, but does that make you a chef?
We have to take that information and put it into action before we get the transformation.
Transformation is something that happens after gaining information.
It is a process, not an event.
No one and done here.
It takes practice and repetition.
It takes messing up and learning where we went wrong.
It takes building muscle memory to create true transformation.
We want transformation. That is why we read books, listen to podcasts and pay money for seminars and courses.
We want to be better.
So why is it so difficult to get transformation?
We are conditioned and programmed in our thoughts and our responses from birth. Some of it comes through our genetic make up and some through behavioral conditioning.
We don’t even have to think about how we are going to react. It is natural for us.
And then part of us knows we can do and be better. Or, we come in contact with someone who inspires us, so we set out to transform ourselves.
But, within a day or two, we reacted in a way we said we weren’t going to any longer. We were going to be that super patient parent or that generous spouse.
We feel like we have failed.
Or did we?
It takes many attempts to change our neural pathways to achieve true transformation. L
Think of what you want to achieve as a new muscle. It isn’t very strong, in fact, it is limp. How do you make muscles stronger? Effort. Work. Repetition.
It is easier to just fall back into old habits than to keep working that new muscle, to create that new neural pathway or way of thinking.
And that is why we engage a coach.
Coaches help to keep us accountable for the small changes that lead to transformation.
We would like to help you in your transformation journey.
