Definition: a thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance.
This is the main reason I call my 8 week contest a transformation challenge. It requires a transformation. I make every attempt to transform your mind, your body and your spirit. This requires real change because if you haven’t noticed, real change is the only change that lasts.
Most other programs are weight loss programs. It’s an opportunity for a trainer to win a prize. It’s an opportunity to get 1st place. It’s an opportunity to not really change and mostly avoid real transformation.
Transformation may seem attractive in a moment of blissful exuberance or in a moment of crisis but the everyday reality is we like to distance ourselves from the inner work required to bring about such transformation.
At the end of the day, do we really want transformation??? NO, we really want tweaking but not real transformation. This idea is void and very selfish.
Once we abandon the idea of real transformation, we become weak and mediocre. It’s the natural progression of human nature. We become self-centered and that is where our goals go out the window. We begin to tweak everything until nothing works.
