3 Steps to stand in your power
1. Who else will make your dreams come true if not you?
Are you waiting for someone else to save you? What does stop you from investing in your life, dreams, relationship, your family, environment or friends? What are you waiting for?
What if you could become anyone you want, but there was no one else who could do it for you but you. Powerless or powerful. There is nothing in between. Each time, you give someone else power over your life, you betray and limit yourself.
2. Why are you afraid to own your power?
We always do what the best for us is. No exceptions. Even if we do something seemingly harmful, there is strong belief attached to it that tells us that this choice is better. It makes us feel safer. We are afraid to be seen and shine. We think it would hurt us or we would harm others.
Mostly inadvertently, the society and family teach us to be afraid of own power. Therefore, we start to fear that we could be TOO MUCH. Too much light, too much power, too much strength.
Since the majority of people live in a world of fears, we feel that if we become more of our self, our light would hurt them. It would make them feel worse and inferior. And, we would feel as we wouldn’t belong to the society anymore. This is how the based-fear idea of not stepping into own power wants to protect us.
However, we cannot help anyone if we belittle ourselves. The society survives in suffering and fears, teaching us to be the same. Not to discover our strength and power. If we agree on this game, nothing will ever change.
3. Examine the motives of your behavior.
Often, we take power indirectly. We control situations or other people and want to become powerful slowly so no one (even us) would notice. We judge people who control us yet trying to do the same on a smaller scale.
You can either be powerful thus positively impact this world or powerless and let someone else decide for you. Be aware of how the ways you secretly want power yet not taking it directly. If you allow yourself to be fully you, you can take power directly and empower others at the same time.
