OWN Your Power

Some people think that being powerful is a negative thing.  Owning your power is having the courage to show up as your full and true self, without apologies, without holding back about who you are and what you want.

Finding balanced power…

Everyone has personal power, but many people choose not to use it or are afraid of it.  Accepting your personal power means being willing to accept personal responsibility for your life.  Any time we give our power away we limit our choices and ourselves.  Many of us believe that it is easier to just keep our mouths shut and go along with someone else’s program in order to keep the peace, but the truth is that you are giving all your power away to that person.

Embrace and nurture your personal power when you:

Speak your truth even if it isn’t popular;

Learn to say “No” and mean it;

Stand up for yourself, no matter what;

Stand on the courage of your convictions;

Find your voice – ask for what you need and want.

 

“You give your power away when you make someone or something outside of you more important than what is inside of you.” – unknown
