Giving Away Your Power

September 23, 2013

giving-hands… renders you powerless.

Yet we all do it.

When you give your power over to another human being to judge you, you weaken yourself. We spend too much time caring too much what other people think about us. “Do they think I am intelligent? Do they think I am good at my job? Do they think I am a good match for him/her? Do they respect the work I do? and so forth.

It doesn’t matter what other people think about you; it only matters what YOU think. 

Every time you worry about others’ opinions about you, you give your energy over to them to fret over their opinions. That exchange of energy only leaves you depleted, depressed and defeated. Time to pull it back. Take back your power and override your fears of others’ judgments. When you take back your energy, you empower yourself to put that energy back into yourself and your work. The results will speak for themselves.

When we give our power over to others, we become powerless ourselves. No more giving your power over to others to feel badly about yourself. Time to stop undermining who you are and start owning your own power. Focus not on how other’s view you, but on what YOU have to contribute to the world. Your opinions are the only ones that matter. When you put your energy back into YOU, your world shines and everyone sees you as the star you always were.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
