Decoding Transformation: Presence Is The Residence of Potential

Why can some people change and others cannot? What are the determining variables that spark growth and expansion?

Transformation—the how, when, and why of change—is a landscape of dichotomies. It is both an art and a science. It is both a mindset and a practice. It is action. But it is also stillness. It is both spiritual and practical.

Today I venture out of my comfort zone once again to share some thoughts on transformation in monologue format—synthesizing 56 years on this planet and over 750 conversations with changemakers across the world—into a podcast experiment I hope provides value.

“Stop waiting for someone else to solve your problems for you—you are the one you’ve been waiting for.”


Transformation demands a commitment to going inward, stripping away the layers of our crafted personalities, and deconstructing the narratives we tell ourselves about who we are and what we’re capable of.

This requires the ability to disconnect from distractions and invest in solitude. It requires the bravery to truly meet oneself. And the willingness to prioritize self-discovery and growth.

You can find this episode streaming wild and free on Apple PodcastsSpotify, and YouTube.

Everything I am expressing here is a needed reminder to myself as much as to you. I am certainly no master.

My hope is that this episode inspires you to take ownership of your own growth journey—and embody positive change on a daily basis.
