Individuals have been forced to consider a different outlook on life
Businesses have had to to rethink their operating models
Relationships have either withered or have been fostered
All the changes have been prompted by a NEED… to survive, to improve, to succeed.
Change is not an easy process. It has to start with acknowledgement that there is a need for change, and followed up with acceptance of a new path forward. Easier said than done in most cases, right?
“Change is the only constant” is a common expression implying that the world moves forward and that we need to be prepared to adapt so as not to be left behind or lost. I like to use a variation of that phrase, “Impermanence is the only constant”. The difference in the latter expression being that it drives home that all aspects of life, good or bad, are not permanent. This helps us understand that we need to better appreciate the positives in our lives and have faith that we can and will overcome the negative. Mindset is everything!
Once we get our mindsets aligned with positive change, there are 5 key steps to transformation — Reflect, Rinse, Restart, Reinforce, Repeat.
Let’s see how these apply to a personal transformation:
Reflect — Asking ourselves what we want to change and why? What are our desired outcomes? How can we measure success?
Rinse — Releasing all the thoughts, forces or entities that have been creating negativity to our lives.
Restart — Reset in terms of mindset, relationships, and self. Aligning with our true “why” and associating with allies that can support you. Start a new today.
Reinforce — Change does not happen overnight. Persisting with new found ways to define the new you take time. The more you stay on the path, the more intuitive it becomes.
Repeat — Go back to “Reflect” to determine the progress you’ve made and adjustments needed.
In Season 3 of my podcast, Lead That Thing!, I focus on Personal Transformation with the 5Rs, providing a further breakdown and actionable advice on each phase. This has helped me get from “Fear to Freedom”.
