Welcome to this series on Success. I hope you find the readings thought provoking and inspiring. Please enjoy.
Do you take charge of your life?
Is your life dull and stressful?
Self-empowerment means that you take charge of your own life. A self-empowered individual does not let go of the power as the expert of self.
The main characteristic of self-empowerment is peace. This sounds obvious, yet most of us don’t achieve inner peace.
Let’s explore this concept further. Could you be self-empowered, if you had the knowledge and tools necessary for the task?
You can transform your life from dull and stressful to happy and stress free.
Awareness involves recognising your environment, yourself and your power. You must acknowledge that you can disengage from stressful things. Be aware of the power you have inside to take back your life as your own.
Let go of the past.
To achieve inner peace, you must live in the present moment, or the “now”. Holding grudges leaves you laced with inner anger that interferes with this peace. When you judge, criticize, or regret, there is an inner self laced with guilt. That person will experience depression and anxiety related to the past.
Let the past go and recognize it for what it is – over. Forgiveness is a valuable part of the achievement of inner peace.
Develop a new Mindset.
When you are willing to expand and grow as a human being, you cultivate a new mindset. Think about your current dominant thoughts, habits and belirfs. Are they serving you positively or negatively?
Cultivate a new mindset so you can acknowledge that you have control of your mind.
Don’t worry about the future.
There is a fine line between the future and self-empowerment. Accept the truth regarding what the future holds for you. Surrender to what is going to be yours and what you have right in front of you. Accept each challenge regarding tomorrow as an empowering event, one you can constructively utilize in your journey toward inner peace.
Trust others and Yourself.
Trust propels you forward to being a better decision maker. Make your choices and stick with them. Trust your own judgment.
Having trust involves having faith in the self-empowerment process, as well as in the process of life. Trusting others allows you to let go of worry, doubt, and dread.
Recognise what you have.
To see who you are, you must see what you got. Recognition is about the what, who, when, and where you give your power. Once you recognize your own abilities, you can achieve self-empowerment.
Identify and embrace the gifts and talents you have. Don’t wait on the world to acknowledge these attributes; you may be in for a wait.
Take time out from your daily life to relax. Meditation is an excellent way to free your body of stress. Take a few minutes each day to seek out and enjoy silence. Because meditation boosts serotonin (the brain chemical associated with mood), your attitude improves and your nights are more restful. Furthermore, meditation decreases the levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
To be more empowered, you must know what you are responsible for in your life. Knowing this allows you to be guilt-free from life circumstances. Take responsibility for you and your life to be empowered and independent.
Share your greatness.
Now you know you are on your way to self-empowerment, share what you know with others. Allow people to see how great you have become because of your new found independence and peace.
When you lie, you feel guilty. Guilt leads to shame. Shame leads to feelings of worthlessness.
Honesty is the best policy when it comes to self-empowerment. Don’t treat yourself any differently than you treat others. Be truthful with yourself.
It is not difficult to be empowered, is it?
