Is it possible for you to live your most empowered life?
Yes! Anyone can, and should, pursue their ideal life with passion. Personal empowerment plays a big role in crafting a life of joy.
But personal empowerment is not usually an automatic state. It takes work. This world conditions us to accept our dull, uninspiring circumstances and relationships. If you want to break out of the ordinary and become unstoppable, you’ll need to work hard on developing your own empowerment.
It’s not always easy, but it is worth it. Living an empowered life gives you control over your own destiny. Start today!
Open yourself up to opportunities
Personal empowerment starts with your mindset. Often, it is difficult to see beyond the circumstances and responsibilities that are right in front of you. If these aren’t desirable, it’s easy to feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
You may not have the power right now to change what’s in front of you, but you do have the power, and the responsibility, to change your attitude. Get creative with your outlook, and find ways to see the silver lining.
Open yourself to positive thinking and opportunities. When you’re stuck in a negative state with your head down, you can’t see all the opportunities that are right in front of you. Look up, and will yourself to see more. You’ll be amazed at what comes to you when you shift your mindset.
Embrace your true self
Personal empowerment means forgetting other people’s expectations. If you’ve struggled with the weight of other people’s desires for you, it’s time to let them go.
Similarly, let go of the criticisms you hold for yourself. Do you wish you were more outgoing, more intelligent, more educated, etc.? There are a number of valuable traits you may desire, but empowerment starts with true self-acceptance.
Accept your shortcomings and your failures. And, sometimes even harder, accept your strengths and achievements. Embrace your true self, and let go of the need to be anything but what you are.
Embracing yourself allows you to let go of emotional insecurity and baggage. Without all of this weight dragging you down, you’re free to start moving confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Empowerment means you don’t compare yourself to others and you don’t diminish your own achievements. With radical self-acceptance, you can begin to carve your own path.
Trust your intuition
It’s obvious to most of us – especially women – that our intuition is a powerful guide to situations or people who are unsafe. We don’t always need a reason. Sometimes, we just know.
But trusting your intuition means more than responding to a gut feeling about your safety. It means trusting yourself that you have the right stuff to get your job done or be aggressive in pursuing your goals.
It means trusting your own skills, abilities, and power. If your intuition is moving you toward a decision or dream, you can trust it.
Learn to discern what your intuition is telling you about your life direction. When you allow yourself to listen, your instincts have a lot to tell you.
Follow your passion to find success
Gigi has already written about the ways passion can help drive success. She’s serious about following your passion because she knows that success comes from relentlessly pursuing what matters.
If you’re trying to achieve personal empowerment, try following your passions to see where that takes you. When you work in a career that you truly love, you will not be daunted by failures or mistakes. Your passion will guide you to keep moving forward toward your goals.
Just as a positive mindset open to opportunity can empower you, an attitude of gratitude can make a big impact. There will always be things that are frustrating, imperfect, and challenging.
Instead of focusing on these things, which we can’t control, focus on the positive. Allow yourself to acknowledge every possible positive angle with gratitude, and watch how your feelings shift.
Gratitude empowers us because it gives us the chance to choose our outlook and our emotions. With a grateful outlook, nothing is taken for granted.
