Empowerment

Who empowers you to be the best you can be?

Is it your employer? Does a company culture automatically translate to empowered employees?

Is it your boss or manager? Do they carve the path for you to “BRING IT!”?

Is it your parents? Did they give to the freedom to explore your own interests and strengths?

Is it your spouse? Does he encourage you to explore and strengthen your individuality?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you have a head start on being empowered.

If you answered “No” to all the questions, fret not…all is not lost.

Although you may get an assist with external sources, true empowerment comes when YOU yourself believe in yourself!

Once you find it within YOURSELF, there’s no stopping you. There is no limit. There no perception of “Rejection” – it is just considered another door closer to SUCCESS!

Once you get here, no one can contain your energy:

No company culture.

No boss.

No parents.

No spouse.

NO ONE!!!

Bottom Line:

Believe, Believe, Believe!

Resolutions

Happy 2017!  Hope you all had a great holiday season. 

The most common theme after the turn of year was “Resolutions”.  

People shared what their resolutions were:

  • Eat healthier 
  • Exercise more regularly 
  • Be more patient
  • Generally improve themselves

In most cases, those resolutions are kept intact for about a month…at most!  Then life slips back to the usual routine…there no time for the gym, grab a quick bite here and there, just going into auto pilot mode.

So why isn’t there more success with those resolutions?  

Here’s my theory:

  • It is made to be such an event that there is some self-inflicted pressure making it more of a burden
  • There are no short term goals and therefore no immediate rewards for being able to stick to the resolution 
  • It is assumed to be a one-time deal
  • The motivation wears off due to the above two factors

So how can we be more successful?

  • Do not wait till New Years to decide to make a change!
  • Resolve to make a change as soon as you see a need for it
  • Treat every day or week or month as a chance to ‘resolve’ aspects of your life
  • Give yourself credit for mini successes.  This will motivate you to continue on this path.
  • Don’t be too hard on yourself when unsuccessful…just try again.  This is your life…you can repeatedly try until you get it right!

A quick way to summarize my thoughts can be through this quote:

“Every day is a chance to be your best!”
