    When you realize that 99 percent of who you are exists outside your physical body, you'll be able to fully transform yourself.

    Have you ever felt desperate to make positive changes in the way you do things? Most people feel this way at some point in their lives. But how exactly can we go about doing this? How can we transform ourselves into who we want to be?

    Usually, when we decide to transform ourselves, we start by trying to change our bodies. We imagine that self-improvement starts with living a healthier lifestyle, so we go on diets or start exercising.

    When we do this, we neglect an incredibly important part of ourselves: our mind.

    You can only truly transform yourself when you realize you're much more than just your form. Our “form,” or body, is the part of ourselves we can see, touch and smell. It can be detected by our physical senses. But, it's also only one percent of who we truly are. If each person was only a collection of bones, organs and muscles, then everyone would be the same.

    In fact, 99 percent of what makes us who we are can't be seen or sensed. It exists beyond physical comprehension.

    This part of us is our higher consciousness: our feelings, thoughts and mind. If you can concentrate on making positive changes to this part of yourself, the change will be stronger.

    Unlike your physical form, there are no restrictions on how much you can change your mind. You can exercise as much as you want, but eventually there will be a limit to how much you can bench press. Your higher consciousness is different, however: you can develop and transform it as much as you'd like.

    This means that change is ultimately dependent on you. You're in control – there are no external barriers at all.
