~Remember today, that all you need is within you right now~
Personal power is all about you understanding who you are at the core of your being … then loving and honouring this knowledge and understanding of self. It is getting to know the real you and choosing to live the unique and magnificent you. Living this way builds the all-important self-esteem and self-worth which gives you the courage and the strength and the confidence to step onto the stage of life and go for it with big dreams and desires. You can certainly gauge the depth of your personal power by connecting consciously to your solar plexus where you feel those feelings of stress or anxiety etc when you are being challenged in some way, or you are handing over your personal power to someone else.
I am sure you have all encountered people who can never speak for themselves or who are constantly needing to ask others to make decisions for them … maybe this is a little wake up call for yourself! Allowing others to constantly make decisions for your life really means you have simply handed over your personal power. Perhaps it is time to get it back? When someone else is in charge of your life you cannot possibly express your unique gifts and talents, and if you cannot do this, then there is no way you can do what you love and love what you do which of course leads into a lack of happiness and a lack of success. Another little signal that you are not fully in charge of your personal power is in finding yourself constantly judging or critising others. Why is this a signal? Often it is the very things we judge and criticise in others that are the things we need to address within self. By placing our attention on others, we don’t have to face our own lack of self-worth and self-esteem … our own personal power.
