Crafting Your Vision: Foundational Lessons in Transformation

One of my most pivotal moments of transformation was born out of one of my lowest moments. I was a recent graduate, out in the world on my own in a new city, at a new job, without any friends. I noticed myself falling into a cycle of despair due to feelings of overwhelm, loneliness, and dissatisfaction. For the first time, I decided to reach out for help and began seeing a therapist.

Though I only had a few sessions with this therapist, one of our discussions created a monumental shift in my thinking and my approach to life. If I’m honest, she was the first person to reveal to me my transformational power. I remember expressing my disdain for life, primarily with myself and the type of person I had become. It sounds silly now, but I had extreme angst about being a “boring” person. I could think of nothing intriguing about me, nothing that I felt proud of, no reason that other people would want to get to know me. To give some context, at this point in my life, I had only ever done what was expected of me: I went to school, made that my main (and only) focus, and I had excelled. Now that that period of my life had finished, I was like a fish out of water.

In response to my vulnerability, my therapist responded rather matter-of-factly that I had the power to change myself. Due to my conditioning, that simple truth had never occurred to me before. I don’t remember anything else from our interactions, but I do know that moment, I truly began to shed my people-pleasing tendencies and started to explore life’s possibilities. I began unloading the expectations that had pigeon-holed me into a certain way of life and started picking up new hobbies, philosophies, and experiences. None of this would have been possible without a mindset shift and expansion.

True transformation starts in the mind. Without a vision of what is possible (plus a little faith), the process cannot even begin. For this reason, our mindset is the first key that we are addressing in our 60-day transformation challenge.

Has life caused you to become a realist (or worse, a pessimist)? It’s so easy to fall into a routine and rhythm. Our minds put us on autopilot as a means of protection, but this can sometimes be detrimental when we are trying to change our reality. Transformation requires stepping out of the known into a new flow of life. Reprogramming the mind is critical to that process. So, if you’re ready to shift your mind and change your life, join the collective for this amazing experience. Your future self thanks you!
