The Road from Performative to Transformative Requires Putting In the Work


The Road from Performative to Transformative Requires Putting In the Work

by Anita Charlot

Listen to The Road from Performative to Transformative Requires Putting In the Work:

Just when you think you have been pushed to your limits, you’re pushed even further. That’s what 2022 has been like for most of my clients. This year has been challenging in every area of their lives.

If you are anything like me or my clients and are on a path of true personal development, consider this a blessing.

Would you purposely ask for all you endured this year if you were given fair warning ahead of time? Most would not. Growth is not easy, but once you’ve committed to the path and have done the work, it’s well worth the effort.

Life happens. And when it does, it doesn’t allow you to choose when you would like to “schedule” challenges.

Something transformative happens when you face a truth you’ve been running from or had locked away deep inside the recesses of your mind. The more you peel back the “layers of the onion” of your life’s experiences, the more experiences rise to the surface to be cleared.

I am not always excited when this happens to me, nor do I immediately recognize the lessons when they show up, but as I make time to do the work, the lessons and, eventually, life-long transformation takes shape.

This is how you go from just performing the actions to transforming into the person you truly want to be. If you are serious about growth, this is the work that needs to be done, especially if you are (or desire to be) a powerful woman of color; you will only move forward by doing the work required in business or love.

So take my hand and join me inside the episode as I take you on tour through this year’s challenges, triumphs, lessons learned, and how they have impacted my work and my transformation.

If it worked for me, it will work for you too.

See you on the inside…
