Empowerment is about making conscious choices which will be most likely to bring you success and fulfillment. It’s about thinking ahead and preventing the problems in life that are preventable and dealing rationally and effectively with the ones you can’t prevent. There is little in life that you can control but you can make informed choices about everything.
Being fully grounded in reality is necessary for feeling confident and empowered, as opposed to living in hopeful fantasy. When the truths are difficult to face, use your inner knowledge/intuition to deal with life’s challenges in the most realistic manner possible.
Empowerment is the ability to pursue your goals without being inhibited by any internal or external forces. It’s being confident instead of self-doubting; motivated and inspired . It’s not allowing any person or negative inner voice to get in the way of your “going for it.”
Empowerment is about being assertive. Aggression can come close, and that’s certainly not it. Empowerment is the “power to” do things, not the “power over” things. Be persistent and follow through with problems.
