Many times I have been given advise that goes along the lines of: don’t tackle too many issues at one time, don’t try to change too many things at the same time. I tried to honor this advise for most of my life, but it doesn’t work! This is not a good piece of advise! It is true for certain circumstances, but it just won’t work when you try to transform yourself.
The way to go is: Think Big! Find out what is important to you. Create your vision. Create your dreams. If you are looking for a personal transformation you will soon notice that you need to work on more than one project. You may need to look into switching careers. You may have to start creating a new network that allows you to meet the people who can help you with your transformation and to reach your goals.
Let me share with you what I mean.
My personal transformation is centered around three topics: professional career, getting involved in a caring community and creating a network of friends that will help me during this process. Last week I went to a professional networking event where I met amazing people who shared my idea of being involved in a caring community. We clicked instantly and are now planning charity events for a cause that is dear to us. If I hadn’t opened myself up to work on different aspects of my life, I may have not gone to this event (if my focus had been on community only) or I may not have sought the conversation with these amazing people (if I had looked for career development contacts only).
I truly believe when you Think Big, magic happens and you create a momentum that makes you open to meet the people you need to meet to follow your personal transformation.
