Butterflies can teach us three things about Transformation

1. Metamorphosis

2. The Butterfly Effect 

3. Transformation happens from within

Metamorphosis

To “transform” means to make a thorough and lasting change in nature or substance-to change one thing into another, like a frog transformed into a prince or a caterpillar to a butterfly.  The way we perceive the world affects everything, including our physiology. 

 

The real secret to transforming your life is to wake up and become conscious of the patterns that are currently unconscious and shaping the way you feel.  The first step to transformation is to identify the blind spots and “transform” them into opportunities for growth.  

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect is when small causes can have large effects, i.e., a very small change in conditions can create a significantly different outcome.  Ala, the movie, Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow.

A Butterfly must emerge on its own

Once a butterfly begins to emerge from its cocoon, its struggle is designed to help it survive. If they receive help, they won't be strong enough in the days to come.

In order for people or teams to get their own aha insights or realizations, they must come from within. In other words, they must see it for themselves.
