The beginning of a new year always presents a fresh opportunity to create a “new you.” With this can come the spectrum of transformations. Some transformations require simple adjustments, while others dictate a more intense, long term process. Most would say that the level to which an individual commits to the process is congruent to the results and long term benefits achieved. The “why” and the “what” needs to be considered to seek the best chance at success.
It goes without saying that you get out what you put in. When evaluating the type of transformative goal you have, it’s always important to be clear about the “why”. The reason for this is, it helps to build the foundation in order to yield the best results. Oftentimes when we are not clear on the “why” that means we are doing something that correlates to the level of comment we are giving.
Beyond the “why”, it’s what is necessary to see the transformation through. Having a clear lay of the land as they say will assist in this. Ways this can be defined is by understanding the variables including; cost, time commitment, support needs, professional experience and skill set of others. Along with this is the importance of clearly defining what, if anything, is involved in order to achieve optimal benefits or results.
Whether your eyes are set on a simple transformation; changing up your personal image, changing your diet, starting a new exercise routine or something more in-depth; going back to college, starting a business or changing careers, the “why” and the “what” have to be clearly defined. No one goes into a transformation wanting to fail, but if you don’t have the proper tools in place, failure is likely what you’re setting yourself up for. Make 2023 the year that you take the appropriate steps toward a rewarding and successful transformation.
