Why Transform?

I recently began a coaching and mentoring ministry called LIFESTRIDE PATHWAYS which is linked to this blog. In an effort to stay current on coaching and related issues I subscribe to several online newsletters. In an e-newsletter from The 5-Minute Coach; asks the question, “Why Transform?” and follows with a rather profound answer. Here it is:

In this world we have 2 choices regarding the type of life we want to have. We must choose between the high road and the safe road. 

Most people select the safe road because it is easier, on some level. When you make this choice you live a safer life. In this life you make choices based on fear instead of joy. You choose the safe career, the safe relationship and the safe friends. You choose the merry-go-round. It’s the safe ride at the fair.

However, when looking back on your life many years later, you realize that you did not leave your distinct footprint behind. You survived but you did not thrive.

When you choose the high road (the hard road) you are choosing the experience of life without limits. You choose to get off the merry-go-round and hop on the roller coaster. This road is filled with ups and downs and moments of uncertainty. You live to the fullest knowing that you are expanding and growing beyond you wildest imagination.

This road requires the transformation of your spirit. When you decide to transform your life you are taking the high road, the more difficult and rewarding road. As you move to higher levels you will live the life you truly deserve. In addition, you become a beacon of hope for others who are looking for an inspiration to transform their own lives.

I don’t know about you, but I find these words both refreshing and encouraging.

  1. It makes me wonder what this means for me, right now. These are thoughts that demand consideration. Hmm…I better get thinking.

  2. That is a great place to be. Unfortunately we all should consider this issue more than we do. Like you I’m considering some personal implications.
