The art of what you may become
What does that mean?
I am not going to stand here and tell you lies. I am not going to pump you up like a balloon, make you feel invincible and then send you outside to blow away or, god forbid, pop. Not everybody can or will be millionaires. Not everybody can or will be professional athletes. Not everybody is beautiful or handsome or witty or Mensa material. Not to say that any of the above are unattainable or out of your reach, either currently or in the future but…. Let’s start at the beginning and work our way towards perfect. Let’s assume that right now, things are not how you want them to be. Things, right now, are, somewhere, south of perfect.
OK, now that we have established that this is not a ‘get rich quick’ scam or a sales pitch for plastic surgery we can begin.
The best you possible? What is that? Some kind of blue sky thinking, outside the box, journey to enlightenment? Put simply – No.
If you have come here expecting to go on a soul journey then I’m afraid you are in the wrong place. This is about the here and now, the tangible and the doable. I do not have spiritual answers and frankly you should never give your money to someone who says that they do. The truth – Your Truth – is inside you. You can look for your truth in religion, in your work, in your friends and family, even in a crystal ball but your truth is inside you. It always was. You need to find your truth, get to know it, get to like it. Like your reflection in a mirror your truth will be with you for a very long time. It may change in appearance somewhat and similar to your physical self, your truth may change with age but its features remain the same. In essence, your truth is you.
“To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
– Anatole France, French writer, 1844-1924
But what does this have to do with being the best you possible can be?
If I may, I am going to share a quote with you. I like this quote. It is short, to the point and very telling.
“If you are lonely when you’re alone, you are in bad company.”
– Jean-Paul Sartre
Love not what you are but what you may become.
The key to all of this is to open your mind, rid yourself of self doubt and any past or emotional baggage. Sounds scary but it really is not. First we need to take a hard look at our selves. Anything can be achieved if we start off with small steps… but keep building those steps the sky, remember, is the limit providing you don’t limit yourself?!
To make those life forming changes and to make those changes effective and manageable we need to break it down into those small steps. By creating small steps and linking them together we can create a grand staircase that can spiral to the direction you want it to go.
Transformation means little and often gradual changes and improvements from one stage to another.
It does not matter if the changes are subtle, each change has a significant impact on the direction your life will take you and have impact over the long term.
Remember you can eat an elephant but only one bite at a time!
Making changes requires a routine AND it needs constancy. Think of raising a child if you are not consistent with your discipline the boundaries become murky and this applies to you! The more frequently you make changes the easier it becomes!
How do we decide what and where we want to be?
There are a number of ways we can help you on your journey to change and success. First let’s take part in a quiz just to see what level of change and commitment you need to put in place to build your staircase!
Now we need you to assess where you are in life? We all need to have a full circle and it needs to roll. We can not drive a car if the tire is punctured and this applies to life.
