Your Destination Is Transformation

Your Destination is Transformation

Anywhere you are going in life will require some sort of change. You will get older and probably that experience and wisdom will make the achievement something you can better appreciate as a result. You may be more mature and able to hold on to those accomplishments better for what you learned with age through the journey.

If you are the same person when you end a journey as when you started, then there is a very good chance that you have gone nowhere and accomplished nothing. No matter what your goal or your purpose in life, transformation is a vital part of reaching it. Transformation itself is your destination. It is what gives your journey, your struggles, and your achievements meaning.

Defining an achievement or a goal in life often begins with deciding who you want to be and what you desire to become. You might role models, successful mentors, or coaches to help you understand what that transformation involves. Do not define your success by others in the sense of trying to get the things they have. That is an unworthy goal. Use your role models to understand what is involved in transforming to reach the destination you seek in life. It is good to model that person behavior. But, it is not good to attempt to mimic the person.

This is not a matter of trying to be someone else. In reality, we are often not being true to ourselves or our ultimate purpose in life. Transformation in our lives often means becoming who we were meant to be instead of some lesser existence that we find ourselves stuck living. We find ourselves just surviving instead of truly achieving. We go through the motions instead of transforming into our better selves.

Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and to begin the transformative life that will lead you to where you are meant to be.
