Each second, millions of our cells are being renewed. At this rate, you cannot be the same person you were a moment ago. In fact, all cells in our body are regenerated every seven years.
According to Wikipedia, Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal’s body structure through cell growth and differentiation.
For us to achieve our personal purpose, to act on our missions and achieve our goals, we need to evolve, change the ways we do things and undergo metamorphosis.
Experts believe that we are constantly moving from one life stage to the other at any given time. How we transition depends on how hard or easy it feels. Thomas Armstrong, the author of The Human Odyssey, says: Navigating the Twelve Stages of Life argues that each stage of life from birth to childhood to adulthood and even dying and death has its own unique “gift” to contribute to the world.
But these stages don’t initially feel like gifts – they often feel more like discomfort, anxiety and resistance. Extracted from Thomas Armstrong’s book, The Human Odyssey: Navigating the Twelve Stages of Life.

Thomas believes we need to do whatever we can to support each stage and protect each stage from attempts to suppress its contribution to the human life cycle. He thinks we need to value each of these gifts if we truly support the deepest needs of human life.
What’s often required to transition is a shift in perspective to change from thinking “I can’t” to “I can”!

As humans, we easily get caught up or hung up in our own thinking. As business coaches, we believe one of our primary roles is to assist clients in cutting to the chase. We use deep direct questions as a tool that empowers mental clarity.
We often ask clients what they truly want? Or in other words, what’s the most important thing for them moving forward?
Almost always, the answers we are given are focused on changes wanted by the person.
People normally talk about things they want to change in their lives, work or businesses, things that will make them feel better, be better, have a better life.
But with the desire for change comes the individual’s requirement to take action to change things. The actions required for change is where resistance usually arises. Client’s can tell us what they want, and it’s evident that they genuinely do want the things they say, but the probability of them resisting the process of achieving it is exceptionally high.
Although we want changed outcomes, we don’t often want to experience the journey of the change that is required to achieve what we want.
As a result, change itself can become a significant roadblock and sometimes it is crippling, both emotionally and physically.
Why? Because our brains are wired to keep us safe, protected and ultimately, the best way to keep us safe is to be stagnant. Stagnation means our life remains on repeat, not changing and not evolving.
Change can be ‘small’ day-to-day, but over time, it has a huge impact on us. When we then look back in time, we can testify to the metamorphosis of life. Our mission session suggested small weekly or daily steps that will help build momentum towards actualising your visions and mission dreams.
But steps are just one thing; sometimes, the roadblocks are experienced when we would like to take the steps. To ensure you take the steps and complete the actions you set out to achieve, you need to actively work at a change management process that aligns with your preferred ways of thinking, working and leading. By learning to embrace change, we set ourselves up to action the things that will open us up to the things we want in our lives.
So this is where we get you to think more deeply, reflect and review and renew your understanding of how you think, work and lead your life and develop new ways of living your daily life.
Within this section of the Program, we will explore the other two Human Optimisers to help facilitate your change; Gratitude and Release.
