Choose to “In-Power” Yourself
Why is it that we give ourselves so little authority? And why do we give everyone else so much power in our lives?
There have been times in my life that I didn’t trust “me”. I didn’t trust my decisions, my intuition or my dreams. Instead, I repeatedly sought the advice of so-called experts who had a lot of training but little insight into my head and heart. I thought seeking answers outside myself would give me peace within. After a lot of banging my head against the wall, sleepless nights and desperation, I can assure it doesn’t work that way.
It’s an amazing “a-ha” to finally realize that each of us have the answers inside. It can be a little scary, quite honestly, to accept the responsibility for our past, present and future. You see, when we realize we are powerful, we step into a position to be responsible. We no longer can wait for someone else or something else to bring us joy. It’s up to us.
Let’s take that a step further… there’s no one else to blame, either. I am where I am and I have what I have because of decisions I made. Many of my decisions have brought joy and happiness. But some have not…
That’s when it’s tough to acknowledge my role in my own life. Let’s be honest – wouldn’t we all rather blame some of our mistakes and failures on other people. It would make it much less painful. But it would also make it much less “real”, and I’m all about being REAL.
So today, please join me in a personal challenge… a challenge that will bring an energetic shift and an increase in authority in your life immediately.
Today – make every decision from a place of power… your power.
If you want something, go after it. Don’t let other people make decisions for you that are yours to make. As you learn to make daily decisions from your own place of power, you will gain the confidence and ability to make bigger decisions. That’s when you truly come into your own power! Meet you there!
Until tomorrow friends,
