Are you choosing to sink? Or are you choosing to swim?

“We need to realize that our path to transformation is through our mistakes.
We’re meant to make mistakes, recognize them, and move on to become unlimited.”
~ Yehuda Berg

What this quote means to women entrepreneurs:
This past Sunday, at Spiritual Wellbeing Toastmasters, my Table Topics opportunity was to respond to the word “transformation.” What came out was pretty darn good … I really wish I had videotaped it. However, that didn’t happen, so afterward, during my weekly writing time, I jotted down as much as I could remember of what I said to create this post. I hope you enjoy it.

There are two kinds of transformation.

The first is when you have to change or you will die. These are sink or swim situations. They are often unexpected and they can feel intense and scary. These transformations change you at the cellular level and your life is never the same thereafter.

The second type of transformation is the kind you choose. You decide to change some part of your life, your personality, your habits, etc. You make a choice to change. This transformation can feel intense and scary, as well. But because you’ve made the choice to transform, it also feels less chaotic, less life or death, and you feel like you have more control.

However, when you look at these two kinds of transformation more deeply, you’ll come to realize that there is no difference. Because, when faced with a do or die transformational opportunity, you can choose not to choose, which is a choice. You can actually choose to sink, rather than swim.

I challenge you to ask yourself the next time life is pushing you into a new direction, what choice are you making? Swim toward your new and improved you, or sink into oblivion.
