We grew up watching Extreme Makeover and other 1-hour shows that would have us believing that life turns around in a few scenes and a couple of commercial breaks.
Yet for those of us on the authentic success journey know that living our purpose is hard work.
We embrace that hard work and all the feelings it brings with it: the discomfort, the anxiety, the sense of not knowing, and the knowing of our finite time left. The hard work is as much a part of the success as the spoils.
Every day we take another step towards the vision we set in front of us, until one day, we are there. We arrive at where we set out to be, and suddenly we realize the transformation that was always taking place. We look back and see the strength we gained, the friends we earned or lost, and the experience we earned all along the way.
So if you feel like your transformation is not taking place, step back and reflect.
Go back ten years, what did you want to do then? How are you living it now? What have you fulfilled and what are you working on lately?
Find where you have transformed and appreciate all the changes you will continue to go through on your journey. That’s just one more move for you to take.
