''The Art of Transformation @ Borders of Belief ''

You promised yourself better, yes?
and talked a real good game
But all these years have come and gone
and things still stay the same

You've dillied with the victims
And you've dallied while you yearn
You've journeyed to the border
just to gaze, sigh and return

Perhaps today's the day you'll cross
And leave this phase behind
So heed these words for travelers
to foreign states of mind

First find some friends to feed you hope
(most men are stuck on "nay")
The masses dine on curdled dreams
feast not from their buffet

Then find a path to venture forth
most any path will do
The trick is to commit to walk
despite what you go through

Embarrassment will come to pass
and risk is how we grow
Regret's a dish best left unserved
and wow will follow woe

One day you'll find the beauty
that exists beyond the grief:
The art of transformation
past the borders of belief

COMMENTARY: The theme today, boys and girls, is "transformation." I had a chance on Tuesday to be interviewed on the "PA" Bennett Show on WGCV in South Carolina. The topic was "How to choose the right Network Marketin/MLM company." If you've read my bio at www.waltgoodridge.com/bio, you'll know that I credit my involvement in a Network Marketing company with giving me the final piece of courage I needed to break free from corporate employment to pursue my passion full time. The bottom line of my talk, therefore, was that if you're not happy with the way things are in your life, then you MUST take some sort of step in the direction of transformation.

The key, however, is not to see the loss of money in an MLM venture, (or the relapse into old habits from a new diet, for instance) as an indication that the path chosen doesn't work. Remember, the path is not what's on trial, here. For every path will have challenges. Every path will have risks. What's being tested is you and your ability to rise above those challenges, and act despite those risks, and to learn from the consequences of those choices and actions, and MOVE FORWARD afterwards. As I've said before, this whole game is a game called "believe" and the act of changing a belief system you've had all your life can be a long journey. The beauty of the painting your life can become comes when you master the art of transformation, past the borders of your present beliefs.
