5 Steps to Personal Transformation: Felix A. Duyilemi
Welcome to the University of Success. Today, we are looking at personal transformation.
Personal transformation is about bringing changes into your life in amazing ways.
Have you met some people, a few years ago, who were poor, timid, apprehensive, and uncertain about life, but today are ebullient, enthusiastic, radiant, and optimistic about life. What happened?
Those people re-engineer or reinvent their lives. Perhaps, they read a book, join a church, attend a seminar or visit a mentor or stumbled on a blog post like this, and everything started to change.
One good thing about life is a simple fact that your past doesn’t define your future.
You can change.
Your life can be transformed astronomically.
There is a process to it. And in this article, I will share with you 5 steps that can bring amazing personal transformation to your life. Let’s dive in.
1. Find A Purpose.
Perhaps, you have read the book, the Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. In the book, Rick Warren wrote that many people are driving by wrong reasons in life, and said the highest form of life is a life driven by a strong purpose.
In my book, “How to find your Life Purpose” I mentioned, ” Life can be boring… really boring until you discover your purpose for living.”
Myles Munroe said, “The purpose of life is living a life of purpose”
When you find your purpose, everything starts taking a new shape in your life. Your purpose redefines your core values, clarifies your vision, and creates a new association for you.
If you don’t know how to identify your purpose, read my book, “How to Find Your Life Purpose” there I shared 21 clues to discovering your purpose in life.
Don’t just live, start living for a purpose that is worth living for.
2. Have a New Set of Goals
Brian Tracy opined, “Life is goals, all else are commentary”
Your goals determine where you go. It determines how far you will go. It determines who to go with and when you will get there.
You can’t be bigger than the quality of your goals.
To transport your life, have goals for these key areas of your life:
As you set your goals, you also activate your inner success mechanism to help you achieve them.
Don’t worry if you think you don’t have what it takes to achieve them now, we GROW to meet our GOALS.
Charles “Tremendous” Jones said, “You will be the same person in the next five years as you are today except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read”
I once heard that if you walk with 5 millionaires you will become the sixth. That is right, your association determines your assets.
Right people expand your views, motivate and inspire you and influence you to dream bigger.
Look for people going to where you intend to go and create a bond with them.
Delete wrong people from your life immediately.
4. Read books
I wrote on my post about reading, “If you desire people to book for you, you have to read books.”
I owe most of my personal transformation to reading. You can hardly find me without books. Today, I have a library of books on my phone thanks to SCRIBD ( of course, all my books are also available on SCRIBD )
Once, I was interviewed on national television on why I think people are not reading, I replied, “People are not reading because they are yet to discover the importance of reading. Once, they start seeing the importance of reading nothing will stop them from reading.”
Later I wrote on how to use your toilet time to read more books.
5. Daily Progress
People don’t change overnight, they change daily. Read books daily, pray daily, exercise daily, visualize daily, plan daily…
Mike Murdock said, “Your daily routine creates your destiny.”
Don’t plan to do great things someday, do small things in great ways daily.
PS: What are your thoughts? Which of these steps will you start implementing, today?
