When we talked to Isabelle Thye a couple of weeks ago, she mentioned how important your own transformation was.
She admitted that she went through an identity crisis where, like all of us, she was questioning who she really was and what her purpose in life was.
She said that that lead her to try new things no matter how uncomfortable it might have been for her.
She went on silent retreats, everest base camp trek, sold her company, through it all Isabelle knew that in order for her to become her authentic self she had to leave her comfort zone and seek the uncomfortable.
“Life is all about transformation” — Isabelle Thye
In her book “The Art Of Owning Your Story”, Isabelle has a chapter titled “Live life like a story”, when we asked her what the title meant she said that life was all about the hero’s journey.
Put it this way, in every book, we always have a main character who seems to be an underdog but then something happens that pushes them to evolve into the person that they really are: a true hero.
In books, nobody ever stays the same.
How many of you would ever read a book where the character is a boring character and who doesn’t do anything at all?
In fact, his life only consists on doing the same exact things every single day without anything new happening or anything to interupt his boring life.
How would you really like to read that book?
Nothing happened in that book.
There was just a character that existed and that’s it.
He only existed.
And so many of us are exactly like this character.
Our story is boring. We are boring. Life is boring.
Nothing happens and we do nothing.
We only exist.
But we were not meant to only exist.
We were not meant to be boring and have a boring story.
We were meant to live.
And you can only live if you are willing to actually be alive and transform into what you were meant to transform into, which is: your true and authentic great self.
You might not realize it right now but your story was meant to be a great story and you were meant to be a hero.
Take the caterpillar for example.
Do you think that caterpillars know that they are going to grow to be beautiful butterflies?
But no matter what, a caterpillar ALWAYS becomes a beautiful butterfly.
Whether a caterpillar knows what is going to happen to it or not, it still let’s transformation happen to it.
A caterpillar never just stays a caterpillar.
It naturally transforms into what it was meant to transform.
And we think that it is time for some of us to actually let transformation happen to us.
Enough with the boring life and our boring self that we’ve been so comfortable with hiding behind.
It’s time that we all transform into our great self and live the great life that we were really meant to live.
It’s going to be hard but transformation was never meant to be easy or comfortable.
And being your authentic self and living the great life that you were meant to live was also not meant to be easy and comfortable.
It’s going to be scary, painful, confusing but what other choices do we really have?
Living a boring life where nothing happens and where you’re not even being your true self or living the great life that you were meant to live while being your true authentic self — Make your choice!
