I got a new workout video for Christmas. It is a Jillian Michaels video and I am really enjoying it, but this post is not about that exactly. My first day using the video I was quite distracted trying to pay attention to the new exercises and trying not to step on Emeric, that I did not hear a lot of her idle commentary. Then yesterday I heard something she said and I really liked it, except once I was done with the video and an hour later into my day I had forgotten it. So today when I heard it I thought hard about it and then wrote it down. She said:
"Transformation is not a future event, it is a present activity!"
I don't know if this is an original quote from her or if she picked it up from someone else. Truly it doesn't matter to me where it came from I just liked hearing it. I immediately thought of it in regards to my exercising, remember that is what I was doing when I heard it. But quickly after that I started thinking of it in regards to other areas of my life. I have an entire unwritten list of things I would like to do and to learn and to see, etc. If I keep thinking that some day (future) I will get to it I more than likely never will. Thus staying stagnant and the same. I need to work to get my transforming to happen now (present) that way I will get to learning new things and growing in positive ways. The only problem...deciding what thing to work on first?
