A word everyone makes use of from time to time but which only a few actually understand. “I need a transformation in this or that area of my life” isn’t a statement of wish but that of action.
Let’s dig in a little within the shortest possible time. There are of course a few words that can be coined out of this; Trans, Ran, Form, Format, Formation but we will major on two which are Trans and Formation.
What does trans mean? Trans simply means a change in state or position, that is, moving from point A to B through a medium. E.g transport, translate, transformer, transfer, transmit.
Formation on the other hand has a word in it that cannot be overlooked, FORM. Form simply put means, the general makeup and appearance of a thing. Formation therefore means the arrangement of all the elements that makes up the form (overall design) of a particular thing.
Transformation in a man’s life therefore means a conscious effort made to change the state of a person from form A to B by simply changing the elements involved or altering their positions.
How then can this formation be worked on to produce a different man? INFORMATION is the answer. Every man act & react based on the type of information they’re exposed to which they absorbed from someone else or a written material consciously or unconsciously. This is why when they say a person suddenly transformed, in the real sense it means the person has been opened to a new kind of information which either removed some elements in him, changed their positions or brought in some new ones.
Lastly, it’s important to note that transformation can be either POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. There’s a kind of information a man gets exposed to and he becomes a better man and vice versa. For instance, a lazy man was privileged to meet a successful person and having seen how hardworking the successful person is despite his degree of success can send a new information inside to him, which is laziness is not the way forward and from that very moment his attitude towards work changes.
But another man comes across a book or person that passes negative information such as beating up your wife in marriage is discipline not an offense and from that moment he begins to manifest that.
What you are now & where you are now is a product of the information you’ve gathered over the years (consciously or unconsciously) which has formed the basis of your thoughts and action. To be a changed person in one or all areas of your life, you need to open up yourself to new sets of positive information for they will bring your way knowledge that will of their own accord deal with your form factor.
Who do you want to become 10years from now? Remember until there’s an evident change, the transformation process isn’t complete.
